A Fredericksburg Anniversary Shoot

  • Rob + Alicia | Married

photographer that has shot a portrait session with a dog involved knows that it can be challenging. I recently shot an engagement session with 4 DOGS! It’s tricky to try to contain them and make them photogenic. Not all dogs have been trained as well as my Bokeh boy :). However, Rob and Alicia brought their puppy, Granger to their shoot and I was SO impressed with her. Not only do Rob and Alicia have incredible modeling skills, Granger does too!!! So well behaved! I loved meeting this sweet little family in downtown Fredericksburg for their 2 year anniversary shoot this week.

You Probably Didn't know About Me

  • Ten Things

I have to be honest, we have 4 people spending the night at our house and we’re about to leave to go to the lake for a day! WOOHOO!! So basically, this is a super fast blog post. :) Hey, I’m just being honest! ANY blogger has these days when you need to put something up super fast. I blog everyday and so you all already know a ton about me… but I was thinking, there are probably some things that I have never shared!! So here it is, a simple, “10 Things You Didn’t Know” post!

A Farvue Engagement Session | Richmond VA

  • Judson + Catie | Engaged

HOT. And I’m not talking “Oh it’s a little toasty”… it was close to 100 degrees. Normally, I would recommend holding off on engagement sessions until a cooler day but these two are getting married in a matter of WEEKS! We knew it was going to be tough but Judson and Catie were so great to stay out in the heat for an hour so that we could get to know one another and take some engagement portraits! I really appreciate their willingness to give it a shot despite the temperature and mosquitos and to be honest, if I hadn’t just told you how hot it was, you would never know!
