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, […]

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 […]

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, […]

Cow Cousins!

One of the coolest kids around, my lovely cousin Hannah, visited us from Atlanta a couple of weeks ago. We all had so much while she was here! When we were deciding what we should do during her stay, Chik-Fil-A’s cow appreciation day came up. Being the silly, creative girls we are, we opted to […]

An earthy, modern restaurant bordering charming cobblestone streets and vintage storefronts. This was the scene of Sara and Chris’ fun and modern Old Town Alexandria wedding. These two were full of smiles from the start of their quaint morning wedding to the end of their restaurant lunch reception. Here are some of my favorite moments […]

Karla & Travis’ Dreamy Summer Wedding

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. […]
