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.

Boho bridal inspiration | Snead’s Asparagus Farm

A helicopter, a stick tepee and boho bridal inspiration? Sign me up y’all! Nearly four years ago, I had the opportunity to participate in a styled wedding shoot at Snead’s Asparagus Farm in Fredericksburg. The shoot was based around a fiesta-style theme with a taco bar, margaritas, pinatas, bright colors and tons of fun Spanish-themed […]

Colorful Bridal Inspiration | Snead’s Asparagus Farm

Is there anything better than colorful bridal inspiration? I don’t think so, especially right now during all of this COVID-19 bleakness. We can all use a little brightness in our lives. Almost four years ago (I can’t believe it has been that long!), I captured a fiesta-style wedding shoot at Snead’s Asparagus Farm in Fredericksburg. […]

Danielle + Josiah | Maternity | Spotsylvania, VA

Sunflowers and baby bumps are the perfect combination. Snead’s Asparagus Farm was the site of Danielle’s first maternity session. It was unusually warm for January, but still had that wintery feel. It’s also the spot where we captured Noah’s six month photos and some of his other milestones so it only made sense we’d return […]

Myeshia + Devin | John J. Wright, Spotsylvania, VA

Myeshia and Devin aren’t high school sweethearts, they’re middle school sweethearts. These two met at John J. Wright Middle School in band. Does it get any sweeter than that? When Myeshia contacted me with the idea to have a portrait session at the place they first met, I was excited! It’s not often that two […]

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 […]

Stephanie + Rob | Fredericksburg Portraits

Earlier this summer, I was contacted by good friends, Rob and Stephanie, inquiring about a portrait session with their sweet pup, Wyatt. I’ve shot a few weddings with Stephanie and being a dog person myself (Hey Buddy!), I love when people include their pets in their family portraits. They’re a member of the family, too, […]

Shannon and Stephen | Fredericksburg Engagement

My first interaction with Shannon was when she sent me a note about her upcoming wedding through Facebook. I saw that she was a UMW graduate and I knew then that she and her fiancee, Stephen, were going to be amazing and that was solidified when I met up with them last month for their […]

Charlotte | 6 Month Valentine’s Day Photos

Since my blog has been out of commission for a few weeks while I was migrating to a new host and server, I’m also fairly behind in blog posts so forgive me that it’s April and I’m posting a Valentine’s Day themed shoot. However, I’m fairly certain the subject of these photos is so adorable […]

Snowy Shoot | Ally

Last month, I shared the first part of a gorgeous snowy shoot featuring Emily. Now it’s Ally’s turn. Ally is the daughter of a local photographer who participated in this impromptu shoot taking advantage of a January snowstorm. She graciously modeled for us in gorgeous gowns not only in the freezing snow, but also on […]
