Some of my favorite images from Whitney + Forest’s maternity session were taken in the first five minutes of my time with them! I LOVE photographing couples whose connection is genuine and sincere like these two. I can’t wait to share more with y’all!
Oh summer, I'm not quite ready for us to part ways. Mother nature is already dropping some hints that fall is legit around the corner... nights are getting cooler and if you look carefully you'll be sure to find some leaves that have already begun to change from green to a pretty shade of red.🍁 Be sure to soak up these last few weeks of summer, friends! 🤗 What's your favorite season? #summerlovin
Amanda & Alex's got married on Saturday 8.18.18 at Trillium Creek Rustic Barn in Ludington, MI and their wedding was the most beautiful, thoughtfully crafted wedding ever. Love everything about their day, and these two, and their family and friends!
Do you struggle with knowing what gear you need to have on a wedding day? Are you wondering what the "must have" lenses are?
Today I'm sharing a FREE download of my Wedding Day Gear List! From camera bodies to lenses to sd cards and reflectors, I've written our everything I use on a wedding day!

There’s something so whimsical about a flower crown...
I LOVE when my #RJbrides choose to wear one on their wedding day!
Can you believe all of the florals here were custom designed by the groom’s mother?? (I keep trying to convince her to leave her day job to be RJP’s personal florist 😋)
What’s about you? Flower crowns yay or nay??
All of the rain today sure reminded me of this peachy day! Such a crazy rain storm popped up right in the middle photographing, but it’s as if you would never be able to tell from simply looking at this radiant couple!
We were so happy to capture these memories at @arborhaven beautiful venue, rain or shine (although thankfully the sun came out soon afterwards and shine it did!) 🌤
I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been crazy busy (getting engaged, looking for our first home 🎉) But I haven’t let my camera get too dusty ☺️ Had such a fun time meeting Tanya and getting to know her. She came to Richmond for a short visit and wanted some “girl in the city” photos! So much fun!!!
School and classes are starting back up. I’m currently taking classes online through Southern New Hampshire University and majoring in Digital Photography. Sometimes I need a little motivation to get my work done and it can be hard. Whether you are in high school, college, or just running a business, I wanted to leave these three words here.
I knew I wanted to shoot an awesome couple here the second I found out about it in June, so I contacted a good friend, @kylee_b_photography and we started planning a styled engagement session! -
Ashley and Taylor were the perfect adventurous couple for this spot! They were down to climb and have fun! -
Stay tuned for more from this amazing location 🤩
Haaaappy Tuesday! ✨
We celebrated Malakhi’s 1st birthday over the weekend and it was special; to see everyone come together and celebrate was the best. Singing happy birthday was my favorite part 😍 there was a lot of good parts ✨ 🙌🏼
Now that planning is over with I’m scheduling studio sessions again! These are perfect for a lot of different occasions: family 👨👩👧👦 maternity 🤰🏻 newborn 👶🏻 cake smash 🎂 and milk baths 🌿🌸 ☑️
My next open date is September 15th! DM me or send me a text message if you’re interested 🙋🏻♀️💕😍
Ahhhhh!! I kinda wanna scream and yell, and run around in circles until everything fixes itself.....but I know that's not going to do any good. (Except maybe a little exercise, which I could probably use). 🤣 I'm trying to take some deep breaths, I'm trying to slow down and do what is absolutely necessary and I'm trying to take one day at a time. But Dang it, some days are so much harder than others.
And believe me when I say it's all just life stuff. I need new tires. I bought something that doesn't work that I need to figure out, I need to get ready for a trip this weekend, I have church responsibilities to take care of, I still don't feel 100%, I'm not sleeping great, my head is spinning, I need to finish editing, sigh.
But, I know the difference between just this life stuff, and really HARD life stuff, the kind that brings you to your knees. This is manageable. I just need to breath. (And maybe get some #nothingbundtcake ). 😋🤔 #deepbreaths#meditation
How are YOU this Tuesday?
Happy Saturday! Here is one of my favourites from Cheyne and Jamie’s sunset photos. It’s my first weekend off from shooting or uni work in a looong time! (Well kind of, I am posting on here and doing some admin & a little bit of editing) I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and enjoys this sunshine! 🌻😆
