2021 Mini Season Recap

Whew! My mini-season was FAST and furious!! Over the course of two weekends (plus two rescheduled dates for weather), I met with 25 families and spent 12.5 hours taking pictures for them! I culled through thousands of images to find the best for each family and spent roughly 50+ hours editing! All in all, I delivered 2,424 images (which is a little deceptive because it includes the black and white duplicates). Whew!

Charlottesville Fall Family Session

Popp Family Session

Boar’s Head Inn

–Charlottesville, Virginia —

The last time I saw Christi was soon after they got their puppy, Wallie who is a Goldendoodle so naturally, I’m in love!  We took pictures together with Christi’s whole family and this time around we got images with CJ (her husband)’s side of the family!  We planned it Charlottesville because I was going to be in town for another family session and to spend time with Sterling’s family.  The nice thing about getting back in Virginia for sessions is there are so many different spots to get images.  Charlottesville especially is simply gorgeous!Read More »

Sarah’s Senior Portraits

One of the first things Sarah said to me when we met up for her senior portraits was that she was not photogenic and that she did not have good luck with school pictures.  Then we started clicking and I realized, this not photogenic business was just a dirty lie!  Right off the bat, these pictures were gorgeous and her natural relaxed face is just perfect!  Read More »

Fuzzy Sock Talk – Celebrating October

You know that song “Thank God it’s Friday night, and I just (just, just, just) got paid!” well picture me, on the couch, The Killing (Netflix show) is on in the background, singing to myself “Thank God it’s Oc-to-ber and I duh duh duh duh duh deh dah!” (the end is naturally nonverbal just sounds because I can’t think of anything exceptional to fill in for the last part).  Yes I did just get paid but… then I paid my bills so.. in any case, let’s move on.  I am officially pumped for fall and this post has some interesting timing because while I’m here talking about why I am so thankful for October, the most recent “Whine About It” episode was all about why he hates Fall!  Filth, i declare!  I’m not even a pumpkin spice latte fan but I love fall and I’m feeling a little more at peace now that it is finally here.  Read More »
