This stunning family came to see me at the Spotsylvania Battlefield for a gorgeous sunset and the last bit of fall colors.

Chatham Manor blew us away this year with their Civil War Santa experience.  My girls were able to meet an extremely candid Santa, make ornaments, dance to incredible live music, learn a little bit about Christmas as a soldier during the Civil War at the manor house.  We already can't wait to go again next year!

Enjoy the video of my girls meeting Santa!  I have bee...

You're invited, to Tea for Two!!  My favorite teeny tiny person, my sweet baby Millie, turned two yesterday, and I had a blast making it the most magical pink and gold tea party I could imagine!!  I made all of the food by hand; we had sparkly pink lemonade instead of tea, peanut butter and jelly sandwich hearts, cheese and pepperoni, strawberry and raspberry skewers, brownies, w...

My sweet bride and groom from last year came to hang out with me for the best kind of session after a wedding, maternity!  They are the most adorable high school sweethearts I have ever met, an absolute delight to photograph, and are going to be just the most amazing parents!  This little one's gender has been a surprise until yesterday, and I have been waiting so very patiently...

Today is my good friend's third anniversary, and because her wedding happened before my blog existed, I thought I would share just a few of my favorites from their big day.  Thank you guys, for trusting me then, and trusting me now, to capture your incredibly beautiful memories.  Chris and Gloria, it has been such an honor to watch your family grow!

Have you ever met someone and instantly wish you had known them your whole life?  That was me with the Rivenbarks.  These two are absolute treasures, their love for people, and sincere kindness, just glows;  you can't help but want to bask in their warmth.  It also helped that we are all huge nerds and Harry Potter fans, we could have talked for hours.  We met up at Alum Springs...

It was such a delight to hang out with my friend Madessa, who is somehow even sweeter than she is gorgeous, and photograph her growing family before baby K gets here!  It was an unseasonably chilly and stormy day, we didn't know if we'd even make it to the session until the last minute.  But just in time, the clouds started to break up and we went out to the battlefield.  The sky...

My sister got married!!!  Not only did I get a brother in law (who comes with the sweetest 9 year old you'll ever meet), I was trusted to capture all of the amazing moments of their big day!  It was definitely different being both the sister AND photographer at a wedding, but it was worth every little bit of extra work, I wouldn't have traded it for anything!  I even got a sweet...

I can't believe this gorgeous momma is going to have baby number two in just a few short weeks!!  It was so good to see their family again, and so fun to see Amber pregnant again.  I got to be there for their first little boy's maternity session too, and even though I didn't think it was possible, she is even cuter this time!  I LOVE seeing my favorite families grow, its absolute...

This family was a big ball of crazy in the absolute best way!!  We met up yesterday at the Spotsylvania Courthouse Battlefield for an extended family session; it was hilarious, ridiculous, and amazing in every way.  This group of four families meet up for Christmas every year, and they take a moment to save the memory, in their Cowboy's jerseys.  (I even managed put my Steeler's...
