Sam and Amber had a beautiful Mechanicsville wedding last week! I loved their wedding colors and all the greens in their florals. More importantly, they had a beautiful celebration to kick off their next adventures surrounded by great friends and family! Congratulations, guys! View their highlights gallery here.

Horse+Rider Portrait Sessions at Pine Crest Farm

I love getting out to meet new barns, and I somehow had not yet been to Pine Crest Farm until this month, for a set of awesome horse and rider shoots with lesson riders and some boarders. This barn is right behind the facility where I did my first CVSJA jumper show quite a few years ago, out in Manakin. Beautiful place, beautiful light coming through the driveway trees, and a wonderful barn family that I enjoyed meeting of the course of several days! Thank you all for having me, Pine Crest! Here are just a few from some of those sessions.

Richmond Animal League Calendar Contest Shoots

For the second year, I got to meet and shoot the thirteen winners of the Richmond Animal League calendar contest--these winners raised thousands of dollars to support animals in need and earn a spot on the calendar! You can pre-purchase your very own 2020 RAL calendar to enjoy these cool animals all year and support a great cause. This was a fun job--I got to pet all the dogs and, of course, hang with Marlowe the cover cat! Order yours at https://www.ral.org/

More sunflowers!

As I edit through the latest round of shoots this week, I have to go ahead and share a bunch from last Thursday's mini sessions at Alvis Farms LLC. Editing this sweet mom-daughter duo made my day! We had a great time out in the sunflowers--I'm doing one more set out there tomorrow while the flowers are still in bloom, and then we will just have to wait until next year to get back out :) See lots more from this mother-daughter shoot here.

Sunflower Sessions at Alvis Farms LLC

We had a great time shooting some sunflower minis at Alvis Farms in Manakin-Sabot and I’m looking forward to more later this week! Check out these awesome twins and their matching outfits—they came to me last year for sunflower photos, so it was neat to get round two in and see how much they’ve grown!

Mike + Sarah | Married

This couple got married at the Jamestown 4-H setting, which provided a lovely view of the James River and some handy beaches for wedding party photos. They had a beautiful day and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to capture it! View more from their day here.

Erin + Will | Married

It is hard to beat a barn wedding when that barn is right in the backyard of your childhood home. Erin and Will picked a beautiful day to celebrate with friends and family and they transformed their Amelia County family farm into a pretty awesome venue for a wedding day! Congratulations, guys! See more highlights from their day here.

2018 Fall and Winter Family Photo Catch-Up...and More Ponies!

Fall is usually a busy season, but this one was certainly the biggest I’ve ever had. Here’s a little bit of what I was up to with my “regular” portrait work, and since there were plenty of horse sessions this fall, those are in here too! Keep up with my work on Facebook.
