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.

Danielle + Josiah | Fredericksburg Virginia Maternity

I recently met up with Danielle and Josiah at Sneads Asparagus Farm on a warm, early January day. It had rained all week, but thankfully we had a dry, yet windy, day with the most amazing afternoon light filtering through the clouds. Danielle and Josiah are awaiting the birth of their baby boy, Noah, and […]

Delaney Family | Virginia Family Photographer

A few weeks before Christmas, I met up with the Delaney family at Snead’s Asparagus Farm to capture some family photos. It was a cold, damp day, but that didn’t stop us from getting some great, fun photos for their Christmas card. Here’s a few of favorites:

Hannah | Fredericksburg Senior Portraits

When Hannah shared her vision for her senior portraits, she was pretty clear about what she wanted–fall colors, barns and something unique among her classmates. I’d say we did a great job of checking off her wishlist. Last month, we headed out to Snead’s Asparagus Farm, which also operates a pumpkin patch and a Christmas […]

Baby Addison | Newborn Photography

So if you remember, a few months ago I posted Anthony and Laura’s maternity photos. Not long after those were taken, Baby Addison made an early appearence. I think maybe she realized that being a late summer baby is much better than a fall baby because, I mean, think of the birthday parties. You can’t […]

Baby Charlotte | Newborn Photography

Last month, I had the pleasure of photographing baby Charlotte, my third niece. At a little less than three weeks old, she was wide awake and ready for her closeup. These are only a few of the many photos we took, but it’s safe to say I’m fairly obsessed with her big bows and grey […]

Preparing for Baby Addison | Virginia Maternity

Last month, I had the pleasure of meeting up with these two to snap a few photos to document the impending arrival of their first baby. It was a little hot, but otherwise perfect as we took to the University of Mary Washington campus for some warm, bright photos. It’s probably a good thing we took […]

The Wood Family | Virginia Family Photographer

I’ve known Jenn for a while. A local salon owner, she’s done my hair for quite some time, including for my wedding, and just has such a positive energy about her so when she asked me to take some photos of her family I was thrilled. We decided to use her home and amazing gardens […]

Hannah’s Prom 2015 (Part two) | Virginia Prom

You may remember Hannah from a few weeks ago when she donned an amazing blue dress and took on her high school prom with some friends. Well a few weeks later, I got to see that fabulous dress again when we met up at the University of Mary Washington for some pre-prom photos before prom with […]

Hannah’s Prom 2015 | Virginia Prom

A little rain didn’t stand in the way of Hannah and her friends looking fabulous for prom. We crowded under a local pavilion, which is a popular spot for pre-prom photos, and were able to get some shots safely out of the rain before she and her friends headed out to dinner and then the […]
