Welcome to the Blog

This Madison at the Mill wedding in Orange, Virginia is a bit closer to my heart than most. It is something really special when you get to watch your friend meet their perfect match, and then that relationship blossoms into an engagement.  My husband’s close friend Torrey is one of those guys that can light […]

As an Alexandria, VA family photographer, Old Town Alexandria is one of my favorite spots! My first fall mini sessions this year were photographed in Alexandria, and they were wildly successful!

The Smiths are another returning family that I get to see fairly regularly in front of my camera as a Warrenton family photographer.

Christmas Tree Farm photos only get better when you add in a Blue Truck! It’s no secret that the weeks between the start of September through mid-December are some of the busiest weeks in my year.

These Christmas Tree Farm mini sessions are just what I needed to get me in the holiday spirit this year. With a very full wedding schedule right up to Christmas, I felt the season really crept on me fast. I didn’t anticipate the arrival as much as I normally would! My husband and I have […]
