I hope you all had an amazing Easter weekend! Here in Virginia, we were blessed with temps in the 70s and sunny, fair weather most of the weekend. Manuel and I celebrated with a dynamic Easter Egg-stravaganza (complete with a massive egg hunt, moon bounces, and story time!) with our church on Saturday and relaxed […]

Phew, it has been a while since I’ve last blogged! I have several super-belated spring posts, but first I wanted to share this lifestyle shoot I did a few weeks ago with the one and only Miss Abby! Abby and I met about seven years ago when we started studying fashion together at Cornell, and […]

Spring in Northern Virginia has been such a tease this year, with bright warm sunshine one day, followed by a week of thunderstorms or the like. After a few months of trying to plan around the weather, I was super excited to finally do Ashley and Tyler’s engagement shoot, and even more excited when Ashley […]

While nobody really cares how photographers do their own makeup (our faces are usually blocked by huge camera bodies and lenses anyway!), photographers are people too and, like the rest of humanity, share the burden of needing to look generally presentable in polite company. Today I’m sharing the super simple makeup routine that I do […]

Ten minutes before our shoot, Olivia texted me: I’m seeing drops of rain… I texted back, Uh-oh. We’ll do our best! Sure enough, a steady drizzle commenced as we made our way over to Jones Point Park. But once we got there, we were amazed at the range of great shooting locations we found! Just a […]

One of the most frequent questions I get from clients before a shoot is: “What should I wear?” As a fashion major, the question always makes me giddy with excitement as I think of every possible outfit idea under the sun (and that effect is multiplied exponentially when I realize how many more outfit possibilities […]
