Every in-home newborn session is so unique. There is something about being inside your own home that puts a family so at ease, so naturally. I love the opportunity to photograph growing families in their own spaces, like the master bedroom, den, and nursery. Ironically, most newborns have barely spent any time in their nursery […]

Winter is often a quiet time of the year for photographers, at least here in Virginia. The weather can be somewhat unpredictable. You never know if it will be cold or warm, rainy or sunny, but sometimes, the starts align and the late afternoon light is just extra magic. I’m not sure if it’s the way the light shines through the naked brown trees or if it’s the fact that after weeks of early sunsets and chilly days, seeing a golden glowy sunset is extra special. Either way, such was the case when I met up with Holly and Colin for their Maymont maternity portraits.

We had the perfect evening in Virginia Beach for Lauren and Nick’s maternity portraits! It had been a gorgeous week of unexpectedly cool weather in Virginia – it was seriously like 78 degrees that day, in August! Of course the heat was back the next day, but at least we got their portraits done in […]

The best compliment you can give any photographer is to come back them year after year for your family portraits. It means the world to me to know that you love your portraits and that you enjoyed your experience with me! In the age of social media where imposter syndrome runs wild and free, it can be really hard emotionationally for creatives to keep going. But, this is what keeps me going day in and day out.

Sweet Eliza’s newborn portraits were taken in the middle of the a big heat wave in Virginia this July. It was toasty outside, so I was glad to be in the cool A/C for newborn portraits.

It was a cold January day when I met up with the newly-minted family of four for little Emmett’s newborn portraits, but the burnt orange and beige color palette that mom picked out for the family’s outfits made it feel so warm!

The newborn session of a blue + white lover’s dream!

We started with Aidan’s family portraits in the master bedroom. It had gorgeous light and you know […]
