This past week I met up with new friends that seemed like we knew them forever! Trevor and Alyssa came in from Michigan for their engagement session and it was just the most perfect day for a shoot! The trees still had leaves, the temperature wasn’t too hot or too cold, the light was gorgeous and the setting was so colorful! The reason these two seemed like friends who we had known forever was because Trevor is Tyler Herrinton’s brother!! If you know our good friend Tyler, you’ll be able to see the resemblance immediately!
You won’t believe this, especially after looking at their photos, but Alyssa shared that she was a little nervous beforehand. I understand why. It’s such a huge unknown when you’ve never had your photos taken before. Thankfully, Alyssa was a natural. She didn’t know this about herself until she got in front of the camera but she’s so good at this! Trevor is too! It makes me so excited for their wedding!!! Michael and I feel so honored to be a part of a Herrinton family wedding! Ty and Ash did the most amazing job filming my brother’s wedding and I hope I can do an equally amazing job for Trevor and Alyssa’s wedding day!! The pressure is on!!
Their shoot was downtown near Maymont Park but instead of going the stereotypical Maymont route, we decided to find some other locations close by. I loved this because I have found that when I shoot in brand new locations, I tend to be more creative and more excited about what I’m shooting!! We didn’t need much! We used one street corner, one willow tree and then took a quick walk under some beautiful oak trees that still had their leaves. So enjoy some of my favorites and get excited because I have a feeling their wedding is going to be one of my favorites in 2020!!!!!
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!
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!!!
