Last weekend I got to meet Macy for her Claude Moore Park senior session! Macy’s mom had reached out to me a couple months ago after I photographed Macy’s cousin Kara’s wedding. I’ve never had a senior and a bride who are related!  It was tons of fun to capture another member of their family […]

I’ve been lucky enough to do a few sessions at Meadowlark this year, and each time I feel like I’m finding new tucked away spots to explore. The park grounds are huge […]

One of the very first question seniors usually ask me after they book is how do you choose your senior portrait location? Living in such a beautiful and varied of the state Loudoun County has so many spots to offer for senior sessions. It can seem almost overwhelming to pick! I’ve had seniors choose locations […]

Last Friday was such a fun-filled shoot for my 2018 senior team! The planning for this shoot started way back in the spring. I knew from the beginning I wanted to brainstorm fun vendors and locations that the team would love. It was so exciting to actually see it come to life, and spend the afternoon photographing all […]

The blog is back! After a month and half hiatus while I wrapped up my last college classes, caught up on a ton of editing and returned to a normal sleeping schedule I’ve finally had time to sit down and prepare some blog posts for the next few weeks! This year I took on 20 […]

Amid all of the craziness of senior year- balancing classes and clients, my capstone project, and more-  I still love getting out to shoot just for the sake of shooting and exploring some new locations! A few weeks back I was home for the weekend and Bree and I decide we really wanted to test […]
