I am…

Thinking For One + Mom Hour | New Mom Series

They all come to us. Everyone in the house and even those beyond..everyone asks mama. Where things are, what’s for breakfast/lunch/dinner and three to four snack periods in between. What clothes they should wear, where the clothes even are to begin with. The schedule is determined around what she knows and how she has the…

Amanda + Chris | Fair Winds Farm Fall Southern Wedding

Cournti + Matt | Winery at Bull Run Wedding

My love for this couple began at the first email. Last year, when Courtni first contacted me for engagements, I was shooting a wedding in England.

Nathalie + Adam | Kill Devil Hills Engagements

Ohhh the good old days of Bubba’s that brought Nathalie and I together– what memories of a way too busy kitchen, bumping into each other left and right, me having mental breakdowns every Sunday after triple double shifts and having to wait for the poor busy bartenders to make sodas for our tables– some of…

First Daughter Dates | New Mom Series

You know, I’ve been a mama for almost three years but there is something I am still new at when it comes to motherhood. It’s balancing the second baby and being a mama twice over, and remembering that the little girl who’s now technically the big girl is the one who made me a mama. And..she’s…
