I love these two friends and it was a privilege to shoot some engagement images for them. I'm also a big fan of their dog, Shelby, and I'm really glad they brought her along :)
I photographed this family when they were three last fall, so it was really wonderful to get the opportunity to photograph them as a group of four this time on a bright winter day :) See more sneaks of their Midlothian family portrait session.
Where to start with this one? These two warmed my heart, and they came with a vision for certain images they'd like to use with their wedding planning--I love bringing those ideas to life! See more images from their winter MIdlothian engagement photoshoot.
Ever since I spoke with this couple and we chose to meet up near Williamsburg to shoot some engagement images, I've had this album in my head--it was great to get the images out just like I had envisioned them! And this couple was absolutely wonderful--they were game for getting up at the crack of dawn and standing around outside on a January morning for two hours so that we could take advantage of the best light available. I loved getting to know them and their sweet relationship--this album is going to be a favorite of mine for a long time!

I had a great time photographing some just-in-time-for-the-holidays horse+rider mini session at Zephyr's Way Stable in Powhatan. These kids warmed my heart because they were happy to be there just because it meant they got to hang out with their favorite pony. See more from the shoot here. If you're interested in a similar block of mini-sessions at your barn, I've just added an option to my pricing page!
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.
Grace was a trooper for shooting in under-freezing morning temps with me (see more of the shoot here). I've spent a good bit of time at Double B Equestrian lately! Some clients have picked it for the great scenery and colorful trees in the landscape (the venue is a horse boarding operation in Moseley).
I enjoyed working with this lovely, kind family for our evening horse and family photo session out at Zephyrs Way Stable in Powhatan.
I shot a fall family photo session for some lovely friends the other day at Pocahontas Park. We are finally getting some yellow in these trees!
I had a wonderful time shooting some images of Claire, her awesome horses, and her friend Molly. We got lucky with beautiful sunset light and a very convenient apple tree that made a perfect shooting spot. See more images from the session here.
If one maternity session is good, two is better! These two families are so sweet and they are looking forward to introducing new cousins this fall. We shot these at a neat little venue near Petersburg called Scents of Cedar Bed and Breakfast-check it if you need an event spot! Check out more from the session here.
A while back, I acquired a unicorn horn that fit a horse, and I finally got to put it to use for two back-to-back sessions on a recent Saturday morning. It's something a little different, but a lot of fun to work on! See lots more of the images on my Facebook page.
I've been busy doing more family sessions lately, especially now that fall is approaching! We've found some great spots in a few locations--Midlothian Mines and Totopotomoy have both had wonderful background scenery, among other places.
I love it when families and couples bring their horses and pets to their sessions, so I especially enjoyed shooting this group at a beautiful setting in Powhatan. The animals were troopers on a very hot day! See more 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.
