Say Hello and Congrats to Grace! Grace is a Richmond, VA Senior who came to me to capture her Senior Portrait Session!

Grace is a true country girl at heart. So I just had to highlight that for her session! We shot her photos in two locations, one being an open field. Grace loved the Boho vibe that came out of shooting in this location and the end results were freakin perfect!

What’s a country girl without her dog and her 4runner!? Grace loved the idea of taking a few photos beside her 4runner, she described it as her favorite part of the entire session! And I never tell my clients no when they ask to bring their dogs along to their session. I am a huge dog lover! Any opportunity to have a dog by your side while you work is a heck yeah in my book!

Grace describes herself as very outgoing, chill, and calm. Before we met for her session she told me that the overall feel she was going for was happy, lively, calm, and fun. The other location that we used for her senior portrait session was an exposed white brick wall. Grace came ready for the shoot with a few different outfit options. Each outfit she wore showed off her overall easy nature!

After Grace graduates high school she is off to college. This senior has big ambitions and will be studying to become a nurse anesthetist! One of Grace’s favorite high school memories was attending the football games. My hope for Grace is that she lands at an amazing college where she can proudly root for her home team!

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
