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.
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.
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!
This experience was certainly a memorable one! Thank you, Megan and Rocky, for entrusting me with your special day. It was a joy to watch you two share your vows and celebrate with family. This wedding took place at the lovely Brandermill Country Club in Midlothian. Floral designs by Flowers Make Scents. Hair and makeup by Fringe: Nicole Brooks, Nikki's Mane Art of Attraction, and Christine Goulet. Cake by Knead Cake Bakery and favors by Sweet Pea Bakery 1209.
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.
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!
