stole the show for the beginning of Alex and Nikki’s downtown Richmond engagement session. (I’m getting kinda used to these sessions in the fan! They’re fun!) Charlie is Alex’s GORGEOUS Golden Retriever and little Roxie is Nikki’s Lopsa poo. Cutest little family ever! I loved my time with them, all four of them! After we left the furry ones at home and continued the session… I almost called Alex “Charlie” on several occasions. ha! Alex and Nikki are two of the sweetest, most down to earth people I have had the opportunity to work with. Walking around with those two and hearing their story and more about their wedding made me so thankful for my job!
The longer I seem to do this, the more I love the clients that come my way! It’s like a gift every time I get an email from a bride with a TON of exclamation marks, exclaiming that they have followed the blog for a few years and now it’s THEIR TURN! It’s so exciting!!! I love it. Nikki was actually a bridesmaid in Lauryn and Jared’s wedding last summer (one of my all time favorite weddings!) So I knew when Nikki booked that I was going to LOVE being a part of their big day! They have awesome friends, beautiful smiles and their getting married in the country… what more could I ask for?!
Alex and Nikki, you two rock! I had a blast with you guys! Thanks for bearing the cold and being willing to sit, stand, laugh, stare, twirl, etc for your crazy photographer! I absolutely loved the way your images turned out!! Enjoy a ton of my personal favorites and give Charlie and Roxie and hug for me!
I told you I’m working on my ring shots… I don’t normally take ring shots during engagement session but I had my macro with me and I shot a quick one. I may just have to start doing that more often!Outfit change!
I hadn’t used my 24mm all day so I thought this would be a good time to! After those shots we were done, it was getting dark and chilly…. but then we passed this old garage and I HAD to take a couple more! Thank you MarkII for having great ISO capabilities!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
Maybe it’s just me…. but I feel like this fall is FLYING by! It seems like just the other day that I was sharing about three more KJ Students who are doing amazing things in their businesses! Well, this weeks marks the beginning of November and I have three amazing students to introduce you too!!!
