I’ve been dying to share this blog post since the moment Chelsey and I started planning this session. I DON’T photograph maternity sessions…but when it’s one of my best friends, I make an exception!!! I’ve also photographed Chelsey’s engagement session, wedding, and honeymoon session. She was a workshop alumni (TWICE!!) and a coaching client!! AND she photographed […]

Two more AMAZING senior sessions happened last week!!! Savannah and Bekah both have such amazing sense of style…I knew their outfits were not going to disappoint. The bright jewel tones and beautiful colors that they selected could not have been better! We photographed at some of my favorite downtown locations before finishing their session up […]

I don’t think I will ever stop getting excited about photographing my senior spokesmodels this year! 6 sessions down, 12 to go and I think I could photograph every single one of them for days and never get bored!!

Now that seniors are heading back to school and kickstarting their last year, I call this “senior season” because I’ll be shooting and blogging senior sessions like crazy through the fall!! This year, I have 18 (yes, […]

These two cutie pies are getting married in VERMONT next year and I will never forget their very first meeting with me!! Chelsea’s inquiry to me said that they were getting married near VT…so I just assumed she meant Virginia Tech (because I photograph tons of weddings in that area!) Come to find out mid consultation…she meant […]

Ohhhh Tigre and Josh’s wedding was so much fun for SO many reasons! Last year, I photographed Josh’s twin bother’s wedding day (Caleb and Anna!!!) and their mom was my accountant for over a year!! When I arrived at the bridal suite on Tigre and Josh’s wedding day last weekend, it was SO fun to […]
