A Surprise Waterside Anniversary Session | Widewater

Karen & Jeff | Stafford, VA When I look at this couple, clearly deeply in love after 30 years of marriage, I can’t help but think of all the moments that brought them to this one. The first dates, the proposal, their wedding day…the moment they found out they were having a baby, a daughter,…

An Intimate New Years Wedding | Kenmore Inn

Marcel & Ellen | Fredericksburg, VA I had been checking the forecast for weeks. The night before the wedding, I checked it four times. 23 degrees for the low, 46 degrees for the high. Nowhere did it mention clouds, precipitation, or snow of any kind. So, you have to imagine how magical it was to…

Closing a Chapter, Starting an Adventure

I have lived through the fidget spinner era, water flipping fads, the whip/nae-nae, and the most confusing one of all – the “dab.” For the last five years, I have been a full-time, often 60-80 hours a week, English teacher. And, let me tell you, it has been crazy. Many of my days were spent…

Charlotte Fay | Cake Smash

Another successful garage/ studio session! Keria Dix did an AMAZING job creating this beautiful backdrop in celebration of her little one’s first birthday! I just can’t get over the pretty curtains, pom-poms, or Charlotte’s baby blue eyes! Even though Charlotte was more interested in chewing her necklace than chowing down on her cake, her session was…
