Hailey | Crozet, Virginia Senior Portrait Photographer

I have had so much fun photographing people I know this year! Hailey was so excited for her senior pictures which just made me more excited than I already was to photograph her! Hailey and I had a beautiful afternoon in Crozet and then up at Raven's Roost! Hailey, I loved spending the day with you and especially our quick stop at Mudhouse. You can never go wrong there! :) Hope you love your pictures. Here are some of my favorites!

Photoshoot With Jaci and Katlyn | Waynesboro, Virginia Portrait Photographer

The urge to photograph someone... When it happens, you just have to get out and shoot or else you won't feel satisfied. Haha. Every now and then, I want to shoot some film but I don't quite feel comfortable enough to shoot film during my paid sessions so about a month ago I put out a little Facebook status asking for models and my lovely dancer friends came to the rescue!! We went out to some awesome property that night and they modeled so I could shoot a roll of Fuji 400H. So thank you Jaci and Katlyn! You two are beautiful and I'm so thankful for you!!!

Sarah | Staunton, Virginia Senior Portrait Photographer

Sarah and I met out on some beautiful property in the Staunton area this past Friday, full of colorful trees, perfect for her fall photoshoot! Sarah was such a sweetheart to work with and shoot! I loved our time together and clearly, she could pursue modeling. I don't even think she knows how absolutely stunning she is!! Sarah, you are so fun and I'm honored you chose me to photograph your senior pictures!! I hope you love them! Best of luck choosing a college and finishing out your year! I can't wait to see where your talent in baking takes you!

Delight Retreat 2013

This has been a year of doing new things, things out of my comfort zone. I've tried to say 'no' less than usual and trust in God more. It's been the best year of my life and I contribute it to saying goodbye to fear. When I found out about the Delight retreat, I signed up immediately, knowing it would be exactly what I needed in so many ways. I walked into this past weekend nervous to meet so many new people, nervous I wouldn't click well with anyone, nervous it wouldn't be fun but I also knew my fears were unreasonable in the back of my head and I was right. I am almost in tears thinking back on what happened. It was surreal and it's honestly hard to put into words how incredible is was. I got to meet fifteen Godly woman who love photography... Does it get any better than that? I think not. God was so present in this whole weekend and I know my heart is forever changed because of the love of these girls. I am so blessed.
