I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), love an ice cold can of Coke or Dr. Pepper, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.

Noah | Six Months | Fredericksburg Family Session

I’m going back into the archives to share images from a favorite late summer Fredericksburg family session. Noah’s parents first came to me for a maternity session when they were expecting. We’ve since captured tons of photos and I love getting to document their family as he gets older. Noah’s 6-month session is one of […]

Deanna + Robert | Orange Virginia Maternity

I’m delving into the archives to highlight a beautiful summer session from 2016. It’s not often that I get to have a session close to home, so when Deanna contacted me about her maternity session in Orange, I was super excited! Taylor Park, which I’ve walked and driven by a million times, has great brick […]

Back that thang up…

No, not that “thang.” The other “thang.” The unthinkable happened yesterday. I lost my phone! I’m not someone who is tied to their phone and I enjoy unplugging, however, losing it wasn’t part of the plan. I have insurance on my phone, so while it would be a pain to replace it, it’s something I […]

Building a Gallery Wall

For the past several months, I’ve been collecting frames to build a gallery wall. I knew where I wanted it and what I wanted it to look like, but actually building it was another story. For one thing, I didn’t have the right combo of photos to fill the nine frame setup I envisioned. That […]

Winter Wedding Inspiration | Raspberry Plain Manor, Leesburg, VA

There’s something about winter light that I love and Raspberry Plain Manor in Leesburg, VA is full of it. Although it feels like we don’t get many hours of sunlight in winter, what we do get is glowy and gorgeous especially in the afternoons. This shoot, organized by Shannon Ensor Photography, definitely took advantage of […]

Colorful Beach Wedding Inspiration | Jennette’s Pier, Nags Head, NC

I love all things beach, especially the Outer Banks. My husband and I usually visit a few times a year–once in the on-season for a week with family and then again for a few days in the off-season, either spring or fall. It was during one of our fall trips that I was able to […]

Welcoming Hartley Grace

Just over three weeks ago, Hartley Grace entered our lives. I feel I should start off by noting that my labor and delivery experience is not the norm, so if you’re thinking about having children or even awaiting the birth of your first, please don’t let my story scare you away. That said, I had […]
