Sunset Belle Isle Engagement // Turtle & Hare Photography

We huddled under the bridge waiting for the wind and heavy rain to pass. This is not usually the description for most engagement sessions, but Julianna and Andrew were awesome despite the unexpected weather. We had just decided to find a dry place before the downpour began. Luckily, the rain clouds passed relatively quickly, and […]

Anyone who’s ever had a toddler knows that they are a pretty opinionated demographic. These little people rule their kingdoms with authoritarian precision. We are but serfs in their quest for independence and knowledge. Understanding how toddlers behave and react to situations can be a lifesaver when taking their portraits. Bribery only goes so far, […]

A Scenic Mother’s Day Session // Great Shiplock Park, Richmond, Virginia

I had the opportunity to take Gideon’s newborn photos last summer. He was the tiniest babe I’d ever taken photos of, and he was so so precious. You can see my blog post on that session here. So, when his dad, Chuck, booked a Mother’s Day session as a gift for his wife, Rachel, I […]

I had the privilege speaking to a wonderful group of moms this week about simple suggestions for taking better pictures of our families, specifically children. I wanted to make these tips available to a wider audience, so here I am typing them up for you! Being a photographer, I don’t think I anticipated how different taking […]

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. In keeping with the disappointment of their delayed shipping, I half expected them to be […]

The Loneliness of Motherhood // Turtle & Hare Photography // Virginia Wedding & Portrait Photography & Videography

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 […]

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 […]
