It’s Thursday! That means we have a BRAND NEW YOUTUBE video ready for you!!! Tell me if this sounds like you….. You’re a photographer…. You have a nice camera…. You are naturally talented… You can take beautiful images that leave people in awe……But you NEVER USE YOUR CAMERA in your everyday life. You NEVER take pictures with your family with your REAL camera. You say you want to, but it never happens!!! How frustrating!!
I hear about this issue constantly every single time I do an insta-story about creating my annual family yearbook and so I decided to share some tips!
I get it why it can be hard to make happen. It can be stressful, overwhelming and seemingly unrealistic to ever find a way to use your DSLR in everyday life….. but.
BUT THERE IS HOPE!!!
I have some tips and tricks to share with you that will allow you to start using your DSLR camera in your everyday life without STRESSING YOU out!!!
This video is a part of an on-going series that I’m creating to help photographers creatively capture their own lives with their BIG cameras and actually SAVE a visual legacy for their families to cherish forever!!
I hope you ENJOY!!!!

It’s been a while since I’ve photographed an engagement session at beautiful Maymont Park. Meeting Ryan and Danielle there was perfect even though I totally forgot that Maymont closes so early! We heard a reminder that the park would be closing soon and just as I started to feel a bit panicked, the clouds cleared, the sun started to shine and I was able to capture the most beautiful light before we unexpectedly had to leave the park!
This beautiful day began in the historic manor house at Belmont Country Club. Abby was showing me her details and then she gave me a gift and told me to open it. I questioned her because it just didn’t seem right for the photographer to be opening a gift on the bride’s wedding day but she insisted! Abby had made me a custom cross-stitch of Michael and I with cameras in our hands! It looks JUST like us and I was just amazed at her talent and thoughtfulness!
Ah! It’s our FINAL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT!!! This July post has been a long time coming but it’s HERE and it’s LIVE and I want you to help me celebrate these amazing photographers who are making their dreams happen!!!
This six month update feels like it’s weirdly disproportionate compared to other monthly updates! Why is that? Well, last month I posted a couple of sets of images that were actually at the beginning of his sixth month and THEN we photographed multiple weddings, had several trips away from home for a few days and the dads were for several days!
Hope and Jesse are the sweetest couple. You can just feel it when you’re with them! You can see it when you watch them interact. You can hear it in the stories that their family members and best friends shared about them. They are truly soulmates and best friends. They have an undeniable love for one another and that is why even a rainy, misty wedding day could be incredibly vibrant, warm and joyful!!
Rhett’s fifth month was full of fun. It’s crazy to me that I know I only take my big camera to about 10% of the things we do in a month and yet each month is SO full.
