The Henry Family and Maternity

I’ve been photographing Erin and her family since 2015 and watching them grow has been such an honor. I love returning clients because they get to also experience my growth as an artist as well. I was thrilled when I got an email from Erin asking me if I was interested in photographing her maternity/family session. My true passion since day 1 as a photographer has been to document genuine moments. My goal for every session is to capture those laughs, hugs, and tender moments. As parents we will especially cherish the real smiles and moments that capture the essence of our children.

I hope you all enjoy this session as much as I did.

Erin, Matt and Brielle, as always, it was such an honor to document your family <3

Cows are a Girls Best Friend

My dear friend Sarah Stanley has become “that crazy cat lady”… except with cows lol


Her love for her babies is so sweet it warms my heart. So when she asked me to photograph her and her cows, I said “OMG YES”. I think it’s important to love creatures, especially “farmed animals” so we can have a better understanding of what that animal is instead of an item on our menu. Cattle are intelligent and super social creatures, so being able to see them as “pets” is such a fun and refreshing point of view. I’m so happy to have captured these! Thank you Sarah for trusting me!

Family Session at Big Meadows - Virginia

Have you ever created something and take a step back and say "holy crap this is good"? haha well, I did with this session. I had to tell myself over and over again that it's okay to like your own work and it's okay to be proud of something you have created. 

This session was so perfect. The sky presented us with its most beautiful colors and dramatic clouds. Also these kids have the most GORGEOUS red hair and photographing them was such an honor. I hope you all enjoy these images, I'm going to keep the dialog short and let these images speak for themselves. <3 

Thanks for visiting :)
