are slowly becoming morning people. Michael and I have started committing to getting up early together so that we can get more done without feeling rushed AND we can have some quiet time in the morning. So basically, we’re getting up early for God. And then the only other people we would get up at the crack of dawn for is JR and Sarah! :) Sunrise shoots haven’t been my specialty in the past just because I haven’t been a morning person. HOWEVER, after JR & Sarah’s beautiful VA beach shoot at 6:30am this past Saturday, I think I could get used to them!
It was gorgeous! There are several reasons why I loved it. 1. I felt really accomplished by 8:30am and that NEVER happens. 2. NO one is on the beach that early! We had the area to ourselves! 3. It was an amazing 80 degrees in late july! We barely broke a sweat! And 4. We got to end our morning together with breakfast at Citrus!! It was awesome! Michael and I loved getting to spend some time with these two. JR and Michael have been close friends since our college days and so we know these two well! They started dating after Michael and I had graduated and left the area and so it wasn’t until recently that I had a chance to really see them together as a couple. After photographing their proposal and then spending two hours taking their portraits this weekend, it was very obvious that these two are an amazing pair!! I love them together and we couldn’t be MORE excited for them to enter the “married” couples club!! So enjoy some of my favorites and get pumped because these two will be MARRIED in a few short months!! Yay!LOVE these!! You can’t go wrong with lighthouses! Don’t you love the colors?! FAVORITE! Love this! Whoever owns this house…. thank you for making it cute… and for not being home :) Oh ok!! Nice model faces! oh love this pathway! yessssssss These two are so good and making each other laugh… it makes my job super easy:) They’re both big Brave’s fans so this outfit was appropriate! :)
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!
