Womble Family



I had such a good time photographing this fun family!  We had a perfect spring day (despite the rain the night before) and were able to get some photos in before it turned too hot.

Four Generations


I absolutely love when I hear from a client that I have worked with several times before.  It’s so much fun to see their lives change, families grow, and be part of some really big moments in their lives.  So I was thrilled when I heard from Tiffany, asking me if I would do a Four Generations shoot for the women in her family.

Jonathan and Terri’s Wedding

IMG_4584 seven

There is something truly awesome as a professional photographer when a family member calls you up and asks you to cover an event for them.  Especially a wedding.  Maybe it’s validation that people you love most think you do good work?  I’m not sure but I always love it.  It is awesome and terrifying.  Terrifying in the sense that if you screw it up, you’re going to hear about it for the rest of your life.  Don’t get me wrong.  I have the most loving and forgiving family on the face of this earth.  You just don’t want to be that person at family get togethers that people avoid talking about certain subjects with, awkward.  So when my cousin Jonathan called me up and asked if I would photograph his wedding I was both thrilled and a little anxious.

Still Moments 11.8

still moments 11.8



There are moments that grab you and take your breath away.  They can be beautiful, heartbreaking, terrifying, or transport you into the past.  My husband and I bought his Grandfather’s house when we got married.  We have slowly been renovating and updating it over the past five years but there are still sections of the house that remain mostly untouched.  These hidden places still remind me so much of his Grandfather.  The primary place is the garage.  My husband and his Grandfather looked a lot alike and although I didn’t know him very well, I am assuming acted similar as well.  There are times that I walk by while Speed Racer is working in the garage and see him standing, brow furrowed at some mechanical mayhem.  His hands buried in the pockets of his worn and oil stained jeans, boots clacking on the floor, sleeves of his plaid shirt rolled up, occasionally taking his hands out of his pockets to run through his hair and I almost see his Grandfather, boots, worn oil stained jeans, plaid shirt, take one of his hands out of his pockets and lay it on his Grandsons shoulder.  It takes my breath away.

Grace 3 Months

This is Grace, my Niece.  So full disclosure here, this post is going to be full of biased information about how this little girl is the cutest baby in the world etc etc.  That’s just how it is when you’re an Aunt.  Take it or leave it, she’s my favorite Niece (and my only Niece right now).

Camp Wilkins 2013


In the post The St. Clairs I mentioned that I was in Lexington, Va to see my new niece and nephew!  So the time has finally come to show these two cuties off.  I was in Lexington for several days and while I was there it was my goal to not only get some pictures of these new babies in my life, but also just photograph the surrounding area.
