Starter Camera + Beginner Tips | Photography

One of the questions I get emailed the most about by those who are looking to take better pictures of their kids and family is “what’s a good but cheap/affordable camera to take better pictures?” It’s weird to say this, but…I don’t know! Haha! Unless you’re looking into professional equipment, I don’t know of any point and…

Krystal, Alex + Charlotte| Kill Devil Hills Family Session

What makes my job fun is connecting with people and watching/documenting a part of their story, usually the wedding day, and then staying in touch and connected with them through social media after the event…and in some cases, I’m lucky enough to be a part of MORE of their life events and memories! Krystal has…

Linda + Steven | Outer Banks Couples Session

I am so HUMBLED by the fact that these two sweet human beings got in their car and spent over 1600 collective miles for the journey to the Outer Banks from MAINE. YOU READ IT RIGHT!! FROM MAINE!!!!!! Linda and I began corresponding and I knew she was a doll. She has one of those…

Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | 8 Months | Personal: Miss Elle Marie

8 months..here it goes. The crawling is faster, she’s eating more real food and lots of banana oatmeal (her fave!) and pulling up on everything. She’s smart, she’s sweet..and she’s growing into such a beautiful big girl breaking my heart daily! She and her sister are starting to really understand each other better and it…

Sarah of Evie Claire Photography | Bethesda Maryland Headshots

The biggest honor in our industry is being BOOKED by someone. The second biggest honor is when another photographer chooses you to work with them..and I have to say, someone with such vision and talent as Sarah of Evie Claire Photography choosing me to work with her has been a joy TWICE over now! We…

Katherine | Richmond Bridals

This day had the potential (and forecast!) for some crazy weather, but somehow this gorgeous bride just ALWAYS brings the sunshine around! I was so excited to work with her again! I hadn’t seen Katherine since their engagement session last year and not only did I get her this time again, but I got her…

Missy + Eli | Virginia Beach Engagements

This is one of those times it was SO great that the original date was a no go because the rain date was GORGEOUS for us! The light, the temperature even cooled down just right– the only thing we had to fight were mosquitos and a little bit of mother nature from barbs to sand…

Hannah Hildebrandt Headshots | Vendors

LOVE this girl! And if you’ve ever met her, chances are you do, too! She’s the whole package which is why I just love referring her to brides looking for wedding coordination… she loves what she does and in an industry where some are just in it strictly for income, finding someone who is passionate and…

Bethanie + Adam | Virginia Beach Anniversary

I’m so lucky, working with these two for the third time..I just consider myself SO lucky. They’re not just repeat clients they’re clients totally in love and that make my job SO full of joy. Seeing Adam so loving and snuggly with Bethanie who is as cute as they come, and a total laid back…

Sarah + Nelson | Virginia Beach Anniversary

I have to say how incredibly honored I am when ANYONE books me, of course, because it’s always an honor. It’s a big deal to capture someone’s life and them as they are in this moment. A big deal. But when a photographer books a photographer, it’s especially flattering! And when they drive from Maryland…
