EErin + 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.

Lizzie+Warren | Married

When you have an outdoor wedding, you never know what is going to happen with the weather, and starting right before Lizzie and Warren's ceremony, the skies really opened and we had a night of heavy rain and not quite the sunset we were hoping to shoot in. Nonetheless, these two took it in stride, moved the whole thing under their reception tent, and partied on with friends! Thank you so much for letting me take part in your day--I wish you both many blessings and happy years in this adventure into married life! See the rest of their sample gallery here

Maternity, Family, and...Donkey!

It's not every day that you get photobombed by a donkey during a session, but this was that day! I met Nicole a while back when she did the bride's hair for a wedding I shot, so it was neat to meet up again for a maternity shoot with her family! We enjoyed our little visitor in one of the fields at BB Equestrian, too. I usually share a winner, but why not an outtake? Of course, you can see a few more of the "keepers" here

Ella's Senior Session

I can't say enough how easy this girl made my job--she was a natural in front of the camera and I really enjoyed getting to meet her and work with her to create her senior casuals. The outfits she picked were spot-on for the light and colors of the site we picked. You can see more from her session here.

Amber + Clayton | Maternity

I was worried about an incoming storm during Amber and Clayton's shoot, but the moodier light we got turned this session into one of my all-time favorites. The water was a fitting backdrop, as their baby will probably spend some time enjoying kayaking with them later on! They are looking forward to meeting their little one soon! See their gallery here.

Puppies and Dancers

I've shot a lot of unique sessions, but this was a first--Taylor and Fallon gave me the opportunity to capture outdoor dance images as well as some family images with their new puppies, who were perfectly behaved throughout. These girls made ballet with pointe shoes and leotards in an outdoor park look easy. See more dance images from the session here and family and puppy images here

Caitlin's Farm Portraits

If you don't know her, Caitlin is a sweet and hard-working person who loves her brother and loves caring for her cows on her family's land--she and I share a love for photography, too! I visited with her earlier this week to shoot some images of her doing what she loves. See more from the shoot on Facebook.

Lizzie + Warren Sunset Session

We almost got rained out for this shoot, but a giant thunderstorm cleared and left us with the right kind of light just in time! These two were relaxed and so awesome to work with--I think trekking through all the tall grass was worth it! See more from the shoot on Facebook.

Dairy Farm Mini Sessions

Last fall, I joined up with my friends at Richlands Dairy Farm in Blackstone to offer dairy farm mini sessions during their fall festival--we had so much fun that we decided to offer them again during the farm's June Family Farm Day!

Ammie + Ariel Senior Casual and Equine Session

Meet Ammie and this lovely and fun little jumper mare, Ariel. These two were a joy to photograph and I'm so grateful we were blessed with a warm day, spring colors, and the perfect amount of clouds for shooting out in the open. View more images from the session here on my Facebook page.
