I was probably way too excited yesterday when I ripped open the beat up bubble packaging holding our brand new business cards, but I had been waiting way longer than expected for these little pains in my rear to arrive.

I’ve talked about being authentic on here before; how my goal as a photographer and person is to be open, honest, and loving with those around me. So, today I’m talking about the isolation life can bring. Maybe you’re not a mom, but you work or study from home. Maybe you’re a stay-at-home-mom and you […]

Cora // Richmond, Virginia Newborn Session // Turtle & Hare Photography

One hundred percent sweetness, that’s what this little one is made of. Cora looked so peaceful as the light gently streaked in her older sister’s bedroom. Her big sister was ready with open arms to hold and snuggle her. These two are going to have so many wonderful adventures together! And I couldn’t get over […]

The Best Moments of 2016 // Turtle & Hare Photography

As usual, I’m running behind on things. It’s 2017, and I’m embracing my lateness. So, la-dee-dah, I’m here writing my look back at 2016. It’s only January 6, people. At least I caught the fact that when I first wrote the previous sentence it said I was writing my look back at 2015. And thus, […]

I know, I’m pretty far behind to just now be writing my Halloween blog post. Oh, well. I’m making it happen anyway. I knew I wanted Anna’s first Halloween to be memorable. I’ve got a limited number of years where I get to pick her costume for her, at least without persuasion. So, it didn’t […]
