I am typing this on my first official day back at work after a long holiday break…and it feels amazing!!! I’m so happy to be back! At the end of each year, one of my favorite things to do is go back through EVERY single gallery from the year and select my favorite images. I’ve […]

This blog post is an EXCITING one!!! Throughout the move from Virginia to Charleston, I had to cut back on my portrait bookings until I was settled and done traveling back and forth. So, I haven’t photographed a senior session in MONTHS…until Makenzie’s shoot last week!!! And this one was a special one. Makenzie has […]

Ya’ll…I STILL CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING. Just in case you missed THIS post two weeks ago…my family and I are moving to CHARLESTON! As this post goes live, I have 15 days left in Virginia. What. In.The. World. I’ve been getting SO many questions from friends and family and followers like “where the heck did […]

Since when did I become a college graduate photographer?! I’m kind of loving it!!! I always photographed college seniors in addition to high schoolers…I just never advertised it!!
