In case, I forgot to mention it…Speed Racer and I are pregnant! We are having a baby and quite soon too I might add! Our little one is set to make its debut February 3rd, 2015. So between holidays and preparing for baby, the posts and updates may be few and far between. I appreciate your patience during this time, especially all of my clients who have already shown me so much patience and love! I cannot wait to share the next stage in our life with you as well as my photography career. Here’s to the next adventure!
A special thinks also to Kayla with Kayla F Photography! I cannot get over my amazing maternity session with her and adore each and every beautiful image she took!
Spring is in the air, which means, it’s Prom time again! I was so excited and thrilled to be asked to photograph some before pictures for Claire’s Prom. I love the Norman family (you may have heard me mention them a time or two) so any chance to get to hang out with them is a good time!
It’s hard to believe that this little guy used to be this little baby! He’s growing up fast and he’s on the move. I was so excited to go to my hometown for the weekend to photograph and hang out with Mr. and Mrs. Hokie (and baby Hokie).
I love being able to photograph my friends! It’s one of my favorite things. I especially love capturing their relationships and ones that I respect so much. Amanda & Kevan, and I set out on one of the first hot spring days this year to Amanda’s Grandfather’s land to take some awesome couples portraits.
To me, there is absolutely nothing like starting my day off with a warm drink. It’s one of my few daily rituals that I stick to. I also realized this morning that it’s one of the few Still Moments that I have everyday and it always starts the day off right. My morning usually starts very early and there is something about making coffee or pouring tea that calms, rejuvenates, and prepares me for the day ahead. It’s a time where I contemplate the dreams that are still on the edge of my consciousness and turn my thoughts to what’s in store.
We all need morning moments that speak to us whether it’s coffee, prayer or meditation, or maybe lacing up your shoes for a run. What is yours? I encourage you to revel in your personal still moment this morning and start today feeling reawakened.
As a professional photographer its incredibly important to me not to forget to capture my everyday life. Don’t get me wrong, there is a side of my brain that never stops taking pictures. I see them EVERYWHERE and try to capture the most I can. But there are times when I get so focused on work, bookings, editing etc, that I forget to take a breath and look around me.
Earlier this week I was so excited and thrilled to get to meet the newest addition to a client and friend’s family. On my way over to The Women’s Pavillion I was full of questions. What is this little man going to be like? Does he look like his Dad? Does he look like his Mom? I couldn’t wait to meet this new little person.
