Virginia Beach, VA & Seattle, WA

I say this every time I get the chance to work with another photographer, but it’s always feels like an honor to me when a fellow photographer chooses to book a session with me. Being a photographer makes you even more of a critical consumer of photography so when a photographer chooses you to preserve the special […]

The Boone family’s session was originally scheduled for what ended up being one of the rainiest days I’ve seen in Virginia lately and we were forced to reschedule, but it was so worth it! The weather on the day of their sessions was absolutely gorgeous with glowy light and a beautiful location! Pleasure House Point is […]

Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays (probably my second favorite after Christmas, if we’re being honest) even though I’m not really sure why or when that started!

Amber and her husband are SO sweet and it was such an honor to get to photograph this special moment of their life. Getting to peek in the envelope and set their reveal […]

It’s always an honor when another photographer books a session with you! Maddie and I met online when our husbands (boyfriends at the time… my how much can change in a couple years!) started Navy boot camp within a week of each other. Unfortunately, even though they arrived in Illinois within a couple days of […]
