We trekked out to a new spot in the field at Alvis Farms that I hadn’t used before, and there was a perfect tree behind us to diffuse the sun. I loved this spot!
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.
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.
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.

It's not every day that you get to photograph twins as cute as these two! This family is the sweetest and this farm was the perfect setting for their portraits. We caught the sunflowers at just the right time! See more from the shoot on Facebook.
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.
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!
Maddy was often one of my photography test subjects back when I first got started (and I shot most of my first-ever sessions back here at this same farm--it's got great scenery!), so it was nice to get back out for some updated images with her. It got dark on us fast, but these turned out to be some of my favorites of 2017 so far. I love the colors that show up under a clipped horse! Check out more images from the session here.
Congrats to these two on their recent engagement! We had a lovely night getting these photos at Dylan's family farm, with the horses making an appearance.
I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Richlands Dairy Farm in Dinwiddie County this weekend. The place is full of happy cows, happy calves, and the family's enthusiasm for sharing their passion for dairy farming with the public. Follow them (Richlands Dairy Farm on Facebook) to hear about their events and catch a glimpse of daily chores! Great people, great farm.
