Photography


screen-shot-2017-01-03-at-1-32-41-am

I aim to capture radiant colors, beautiful light, unique personalities and true emotions. As much as I adore perfectly posed photos, I also know how truly valuable those candid moments are that unfold naturally! My goal is to capture it all, and not only that… but I’m proud to be a shoot-and-share photographer, which means I will edit and deliver an UNLIMITED amount of the amazing photos that we capture during your session!

Someone once told me in order to be a professional photographer, I had to specialize in just ONE particular area, but my reaction… nonsense!
I love my clients and want to be their photographer for life – capturing each and every beautiful milestone! And, I’ve had the amazing joy of doing just that. I’ve remained with some clients from their proposals to engagement and wedding, then to maternity, newborn, family sessions and onward to multiple children. To me, that is the greatest compliment I can receive.
I cannot even put into words what an honor it is to be such an important part of a family’s memory preserving journey, and I cherish the opportunities to document these moments for current and future generations to enjoy.

DO YOU TRAVEL?  . . . .
Absolutely!!! I’m based near Charlottesville, Virginia, but have been fortunate enough to photograph on the east coast, west coast, and internationally. I will happily hop in my car or on a plane to capture any special occasion!

DO YOU OFFER DIGITAL FILES?  . . . .
Yes! I take pride in the fact that I’m a “shoot-and-share” photographer (meaning my packages are designed to always provide you with final professionally-edited digital files).

WILL YOU HELP US PREPARE FOR OUR PHOTOS?  . . . .
Yes! I’m very much a planner and love helping clients feel 100% ready for their photo day. Together we’ll brainstorm locations, wardrobes, styling, props, etc.
