This is different from my usual shoots, but I love this little family so much and I was so honored when Lauryn asked me to take their family photos! They welcomed their son, Mac, this year and he is such a little cutie. We had so much fun walking around the Capital building here in Richmond and they made my job so easy…I got to know Lauryn several years ago when Ryan and I moved to Richmond and it is so much fun getting to see her and Jared as parents! They are so fun, stylish, and loving…Mac is so lucky to have them! Thank you so much again Lauryn and Jared! I hope you enjoy
I’ve been waiting for this day when I finally get to reveal Ashley’s bridal portraits! She and Watson got married this past weekend in a celebration that was straight out of the fairytale books at The Jefferson Hotel. Ashley is the epitome of the vintage glam bride…she is incredibly chic in an old Richmond, elegant fashion. Ashley slipped into her jeweled wedding gown at the Jefferson for her bridal portraits and when I saw her in it, she took my breath away! She is absolutely stunning and it was such an honor to take these photos for her family! The beautiful florals were designed by the talented Caroline of

We took this a couple of weeks ago on a warm early fall evening…the light was absolutely dreamy and Cate was the epitome of Southern elegance in her wedding gown…these were taken at her now husband’s family plantation home on the outskirts of Richmond and the setting fit her style perfectly! The tree lined driveway and her mother’s veil make these so perfectly Southern in my mind…I hope you enjoy my favorites!
I think that the love of a mother is one of the most beautiful and fascinating and pure types of love. It’s incredible to watch a mother grow more in love with her precious little one as her belly grows and the date of her baby’s arrival gets closer and closer! Although this is a step away from the normal shoots I do, it’s so amazing to watch my friends become mothers and these photos of this growing little family are easily some of my new favorites…I love photographing love and it is so easy to capture between a couple as they are awaiting the arrival of a new baby! It was such an incredible honor for me
Two weeks ago at this time I was sitting in a session at the Winshape Retreat Center for the Connect Retreat no doubt listening to wise words from one of our wonderful speakers and sitting next to some of the greatest friends. In a few hours we’d be eating lunch in the dining hall and then having chickfila ice-cream with oreos on top for dessert. Oh it feels like a happy dream at this point. What I would give to go back to those moments! That week included a lot of driving for Ryan (he doesn’t like when I drive because I drive like a grandma), but it also included a lot of rest, growth for our relationship
