Gideon’s Northern Virginia Lifestyle Newborn Session

I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t gush about how capital C cute this little guy is. He was so sweet and calm througout his photo session. He’s also a champion. I was originally supposed to take some maternity photos for Gideon’s mama, but Gideon ended up greeting the world earlier than […]

There’s a lot to say about this topic, so trust me that this is just the tip of the iceberg. This isn’t meant to be advice for photographers. Really I’m writing this post for all of you that want to […]

We Can All Be Successful!

Honestly, I’ve been feeling a bit discouraged with myself lately. In this world of perfectly curated Instagram feeds, it’s certainly easy to play the comparison game. I’m guilty of it.

A grand Virginia Bed and Breakfast, complete with a rose garden and lovely old shade trees. What could be more picturesque? Karla and Travis had a warm, dreamy wedding set against this backdrop. Despite the heat, these two had such relaxed attitudes. They made capturing photos a breeze. Ha, I couldn’t resist the pun usage. […]

Time in a Bottle

Time. That is something I never seem to have enough of these days. Since having my daughter in November I’ve often vacillated between feeling overworked and lazy. Sometimes I even feel both at the same time. I think I am pretty proficient at time management, so why is it so hard to cut myself some […]

I’ve got to say babies are some of my favorite subjects to photograph. They don’t really model, and they certainly don’t pretend to be happy when they are not. Even though that can seem like it would be frustrating, the result is pure, unadulterated honesty. What you see in an image of a baby is […]
