emailed me years ago when I was still in college. My business was new and I was starting to find my rhythm. I was very blessed to have a very successful first two years in business and I quickly realized that I wanted to specialize in weddings. Being a full time college student and shooting 20 weddings on the side quickly limited my ability to shoot additional portrait sessions and I wasn’t available for a shoot with Chirag and Rima at that point in time. However, Rima didn’t give up! We have exchanged sporadic emails for YEARS!
And finally, we made their anniversary happen!! I’m just so honored that Rima has followed the blog for so long and was SO excited to have me photograph the two of them. Chirag and Rima have been married for 8 years! … And yet they still look like newlyweds! :) I loved having the privilege of documenting their love in this season of life and we couldn’t have picked a more beautiful week! Blossoms, blossoms and more blossoms!!! Rima’s Indian attire was the perfect compliment to the gorgeous blooming trees in the Church Hill. I loved my time with these two. Rima is such a sweetheart and Chirag acquired some “good husband” points for doing this shoot for his wife. :) I can’t WAIT to share some of my favorites!! Enjoy this bright and vibrant anniversary shoot!!Ohh the blooms!!! Loving these colors!! Rima you’re stunning!! If I shot through trees like this all year long… that would be ok with me! A favorite! Oh you two…. this is beautiful! Love. Rima, these are two of my favorites!! You’re beautiful! Looking good Chirag!!
There has never been a year quite like 2020. It started off so normal, so simple and so carefree. Then, March/April hit and it felt like everything was turned upside down!
Another month. I had forgotten just how fast it goes when they are this tiny. One minute they are in 0-3 month clothes and the next you’re unpacking 6month options!
How is it MARCH already in 2021?! This year is flying by and we’re getting closer and closer to the beginning of wedding season! At least we are here in Virginia! It’s my honor to get to introduce you to some of our KJ Students who are doing the hard work of educating themselves and growing their businesses! My hope is that their stories and advice will be an encouragement to anyone wanting to grow and feel confident before wedding season picks up!
Welcome to a brand new installment of KJ Student Spotlight!! It’s always a good day on the blog when we get to introduce you to some of our students and share their wins and advice!!! These three students have taken courses, watched Youtube episodes, are KJ All Access members, use our templates and have invested in themselves time and time again in order to grow their businesses! They deserve this recognition!!!
Here it is! Post one of twelve! I’m committing, once again, to blogging my favorite images each month of Everett’s first year and I’m excited about it because I know from past experience that this is truly the BEST motivation and accountability to stay on top of family editing!!
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!
