Sheaden’s Senior Session

Y’all! I had so much fun on Sunday taking Sheaden’s pictures. We had the best time, laughed a lot, and got A LOT of pictures in. Editing was terrible only because I couldn’t choose my favorites. I’m so glad we hiked all the way down to the bottom of Maymont to get pictures at the waterfall and the pond. It was a tough trek back up those steps, but it was worth it! I’m so excited to share pictures from the day of this gorgeous senior, with a few pictures sprinkled in with her mom and her sweet boyfriend.

Julie + Rick’s Summer Engagement

My favorite things are good things that happen unexpectedly–a kind stranger holding the door open for you when you’re out somewhere, finding five dollars in the pocket of a pair of jeans you’d forgotten about, or having a coworker text you and say they may have a new client for you and wanted to know all of your photography information. (Thanks Lindsay!) So when I got that text, of course, I went into overdrive, sending her as much information as I could. And the next day I had a message from Julie, asking if she could book her wedding with me! It’s just exciting when things happen unexpectedly like that!

With Rick and Julie’s wedding coming up soon, we knew we needed to get their engagement pictures done pretty quickly. We’re only a few weeks away from October! So when I got to her family’s farm (where the engagement pictures were taken and where the wedding will be) I got so excited. I don’t want to give away a really cool detail, I’ll save that for the wedding itself–but I’m SUPER ready for it!

They wanted their fur babies in some of the pictures and while Duke loved the attention, Pete wanted to do his own thing.

If you’ve been following the blog, you’ve noticed that I just posted Madelyn’s college senior photos, and in the post, I mentioned she’d just gotten a new job that took her all the way to Florida. Well, while we were chatting during her pictures, I asked how her boyfriend Seth felt about her moving so far away and as I’m sure you guessed, he wasn’t too thrilled she’d be hundreds of miles from home.

So that called for some cute coupley pictures before she left! I’m so glad Seth avoided rolling his eyes and was a good sport for all the “now kiss her forehead” and “okay, nose to nose” instructions I threw at them. We couldn’t get him to try out the whole “fake laughing” thing, but maybe next time!

Before we get to Madelyn’s session, let me tell y’all — I love her whole family! I worked with her mom for three years, got to know Madelyn and her sisters very well. I photographed her youngest sister, Sam’s, SENIOR SESSION last August. And so when they asked me to take Madelyn’s college senior pictures I jumped at the chance because hanging out with these chicks makes me feel 100% cooler than I am!

We took these pictures back in May, right before her graduation from ODU. And in July she left for an awesome job in Florida! I know she’s missing home and her family but also soaking in the sun (I know I would be!) in her new place.

Madelyn’s best friend, Kim, was the other half of her college cap idea!

Hi friends! It’s been a long while, but I’m happy to say the blog is back up and running. And since it was down for so long, I feel like I need to backtrack and blog some of the sessions I’ve done in the past few months just to catch up! So thank y’all for bearing with me. It’s been a busy summer and now that I’m heading back to my full-time job, I am getting back into a daily routine again. Weird how that happens, huh?

Anyway, I’m excited to share this engagement session with Hillary and Mitch because this girl is very dear to my heart. Hillary and I used to work together and ever since she found out I was a photographer she kept telling me I was going to shoot her wedding, even before she had the groom. Well, after she and Mitch made their engagement official, I got the text message. And of course, I accepted!! We took these pictures back in April and now that I’m looking through them again, I cannot WAIT for their wedding in November. If I know Hillary, her wedding is going to be a P A R T Y !

I’m not really sure if they can ever be serious when they’re together, haha!

Hi friends! I’m so excited to share the latest engagement session with y’all because, in the midst of all this cold and frigid weather, we managed to pick the perfect sunny 60-degree day in late November! What are the odds? It was too perfect of a day and the park trails were fun to walk AND I even found an RVA rock! The first one I’ve ever found… and now I can’t remember what I did with it. I’m pretty sure it’s in my camera bag. Haha!

I had so much fun getting to know Mercy and Elliotte. They were so go-with-the-flow and didn’t need much prompting to just be cute! I can’t wait for their wedding next October! As I went through the pictures, I had a hard time choosing my favorite and ended up admitting to myself I loved them all. It was so hard narrowing down which ones I wanted to blog, so here’s a whole bunch to enjoy!

Y’all… blogging is hard. Mostly because I’m just not in a routine. In college, I had an “everything” blog where I wrote all the time. I kept it up pretty regularly for a year before it fizzled out. But sometimes it’s just hard to keep up with. Sometimes it’s hard to think up what to post. But I was sitting here today on my “flood day” off from work (I love working for a school) and I realized I never posted Sam’s senior session! And I should have because I love these pictures and she’s so pretty!
