Scenic Sunset Family Session // Turtle & Hare Photography

It’s the best view of Richmond in town! This adventurous family trekked over to Belle Isle with me for their scenic sunset family session. The light was perfect and so were the smiles! Once the girls started playing and giggling together, my heart had completely melted. I’ve been photographing them since they were born, so […]

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 […]

A Golden, Lakeside Family Session // Midlothian, VA // Turtle & Hare Photography

Todd and Erin are good friends of ours. Their youngest son is the same age as our daughter, which provides tons of entertaining visits and conversations! They also have a charming, smart older son, who is great to be around. Taking photos of this family is always fun since they have so much fun together. […]

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, […]

A Murder, She Wrote Halloween with JB Fletcher // Turtle & Hare Photography

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 […]

This was my first time meeting this family, but they are super sweet! It was a bit of a blustery day, but they were all champs about it. I love shooting families with kids because you get to see this sparkle of personality come out when they’re all just hanging out and interacting with each […]

An Autumn Park Family Session in Chesapeake, Virginia // Turtle & Hare Photography

I first met Julie through a recommendation in Fall 2014. I was able to have both a maternity and newborn session with her and her family then. Fast forward two years, and her once newborn and one-year-old boys are now two and three! I couldn’t believe how much they’ve grown. It’s really something special to […]

Let’s talk about photographic style and posing techniques. I’ve been wanting to write about this for a while. 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. Lately, I’ve been looking at these photos of strong, successful women and believing the lie that they are better than me. Someone else’s success does […]

I have to admit, taking Joshua’s hospital photos was extra special because he’s my nephew! The morning he was born, Paul and I were frantically running around trying to pack up everything we’d need to head up and stay in DC. We knew Paul’s sister was in labor, but once we knew Joshua was born, […]
