decided that I’ll never be able to shoot in every beautiful location in Virginia… there are SO many adorable towns in this state! I have driven through Aldie and Middleburg several times in the last few years and it’s a gorgeous area!! The rolling hills and historic homes are stunning! It was the perfect location for Michael and Brittany’s engagement session!! I met Brittany almost a year ago but we have been exchanging emails for a while now!! She has been looking forward to her engagement and wedding pictures for some time and I’m so thankful that we had the most beautiful day to shoot them!
We had originally planned their engagement session for a few weeks back but there was a 100% chance of rain! I’m so glad we rescheduled! Last Thursday was perfect!! Michael and Brittany are such pros. I mean seriously, the first set of images were supposed to be “test” shots! I normally take a few minutes to explain some poses to my couples and I treat that time as a “warm up” period! Well, these two didn’t need to warm up. They are just naturally photogenic and I could have photographed them for hours!! Between their smiles and amazing outfits, it was the most ideal situation for an engagement session! We loved spending some time with Michael, Brittany and Beau… their dog! As the sun set and our time together came to an end, we were sad that we had to wait until September to see each other again!! Maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll come down to visit their friends (and Past KJ Couple!) Noah and Kaylie in RVA!! :) I love meeting bridesmaids and then eventually having the honor of shooting their own weddings!! We can’t wait for these two to tie the knot!
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!
