I am seriously in love with this Narnia inspired bridal session which took place in some Richmond, Virginia woods (woods are hard to find when you are in the city!). I knew the snow was coming, not just snow, but a BLANKET of snow and I was inspired!! I thought BIG FUR COAT! I got a hold of one as soon as possible and contacted Rachel at Elle Style Studio and the sweet gals at Proper Petal to make this happen. I was pumped when they  joined me on this last minute, crazy shoot! I volunteered Rachel to be the model because, duh, she’s gorgeous and she had the vintage dress. This shoot was very much inspired by my love of bohemian, the organic feel of the woods, simplicity of details, and of course the mystery of Narnia. I can’t tell you how excited I was with the results. It was exactly what I had envisioned in my mind. Proper Petal blew it out of the water again (we knew they would) and Rachel, well, she has a modeling career ahead of her. You don’t need a lot of details to make something beautiful; Wildflowers, little makeup, and God’s creation go a long way!

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!
