"Let me love you a little more before you're not little anymore." ~Unknown

I have this quote hanging above my baby's crib. It's a good reminder not to take these sweet little moments for granted. Although these newborn days go by quickly, we can preserve them in portraits. That's what I love most about photography -- you are capturing a moment in time so that you'll always be able to revisit it.

I prioritize attention to detail in every aspect of the process, from lighting and posing to post-processing and retouching. My ultimate goal is to ensure that my clients are completely satisfied and feel confident with their portraits. Check out these recent headshots I just completed for !


🌸 Spring 🌸 is upon us! Other times of year are certainly beautiful, but this is my all-time favorite time of year. Seeing everything come back to life makes me so happy!! If you feel like I do, don't wait for fall photos -- let's do a spring session while everything is in bloom! 🌷 DM me, and I'll get you on my schedule!

Beautiful Brooklyn. I had so much fun taking her portrait. Here are just some of my favorites.

Do you own a small business but don't have a professional photographer? Photos are one thing you don't want to skimp on. I've really enjoyed going beyond the traditional headshot and providing a variety of personal branding images for my clients to really give their online presence both a polished and personal look. Here are some of my favorites I've done for Coach Kaitlin .

First time visiting the State Arboretum of Virginia. It was a beautiful afternoon spent with my mom, sisters and youngest son Landon. Here are a few of my favorites from the day.


"God creates the beauty. My camera and I are a witness." - Mark Denman

🍁 The wonder of fall is just one of the times of year that reminds us of God's greatness and wisdom. Just as He puts beauty into new life like the blooms and bright green leaves in the spring, He puts beauty into the life that is fading like these beautiful fall leaves. Take some time to praise Him today for the beauty He is blessing us with. Happy fall! πŸ‚

We are already a week into October 😱 and the leaves are starting to change. Before you know it, it'll be Halloween, and the colors will be about past their peak for Northern Virginia. We can schedule a family session, a session just for your kiddos or even a sweet "Mommy and Me" session. DM me and we'll talk dates!

"Homeschooling is not a race to the finish line; it's a journey of a million small discoveries that lead you along the path that God has marked out for you." - Jeannie Fulbright
My main gigs are homemaking and homeschooling. I love being able to witness these small discoveries my kids make firsthand, from reading their first words to understanding the nature around us.


"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." - Anne of Green Gables


Happy first day of fall!

"Golden hour" is about an hour after sunrise and before sunset. πŸŒ… Scheduling your session during "golden hour" will give you this warm, soft, glowy lighting. I'm loving the beautiful glow in these sweet family photos!


🍁 "Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons." - Jim Bishop

πŸ‚ Fall colors, football, flannel, fall photos πŸ˜‰, pumpkins, mums, apple cider donuts, cinnamon tea... So many things to look forward to in the fall!

We are really looking forward to making more fun fall memories with friends! What are some of your favorite fall traditions?

"Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter." - Ansel Adams

I can't help but share some of the beauty my husband and I have seen as we have traveled to some incredible places. This was a wild horse out in the African bush of Namibia near Brandberg Mountain. The sun was setting, and the horse came and stood in just the right spot. It was such a breathtaking moment that I'll never forget.

πŸ‚ "Life starts over again when it gets crisp in the fall." - F. Scott Fitzgerald 🍁
I love spring and summer, but the colors of fall are nothing short of awe-inspiring. What's the best way to take it all in? Capture the beautiful colors in your family photo session, of course!


β€œWhen life gets blurry, adjust your focus.” – Unknown

Boy, does this apply to so many aspects of our lives. As primarily a homemaker and homeschool mom, it’s easy for me to get overwhelmed with the responsibilities. But I am learning to shift my focus from the amount of tasks I need to get done to the blessings I have before me that create those tasks πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦. Ultimately the focus comes back to our blessings and the wonderful blessing-Giver. β€œEvery good and every perfect gift comes from above…” James 1:17.


Happy Friday, friends! I love to get these genuine smiles and laughs, especially from the kiddos I photograph. As a photographer, I try to have some tricks up my sleeve to get these sweet expressions. Hope you all enjoy your long weekend!

πŸ‚ The leaves change fast, so don't wait to book your fall family session!

"A photograph is the pause button on life." Ty Holland


The close of summer is giving me all the feels. I love summer. I love my kids being out of school. I love taking them to the pool, taking evening walks and picking blackberries. I love summer food, grilling out, taking trips... But I'm also ready for some cooler weather, fall colors and football (Roll Tide)! Flash back to this fun summer photo session.

Thanks to my hubby for capturing some very last-minute maternity shots with my sweet boys. I normally recommend doing maternity pictures between months 7-8, but right now it's Covid's world and we just live in it. πŸ˜„

When a photographer's photographer comes down with Covid, she takes her own family photos. Here are the photos from yesterday's shoot with my whole family while everyone was in town for Christmas.
