Colby & Taylor | Shadow Creek Wedding, Purcellville, VA

Taylor and Colby’s wedding was truly a wedding photographer’s dream! Shadow Creek is absolutely stunning, and paired with an overcast sky and a gorgeous couple was giving me all of the heart eyes! Not to mention all of the details by Kathleen of Elegant Momentz and the flowers by Designing flowers were just breathtaking! Taylor, being from Kentucky, was really able to incorporate her country side into this beautiful wedding. The girls all wore boots and the backdrop was the most picturesque farm with rolling hills. (Cows included!) Views like that always remind me why I love Virginia so much! I hope you enjoy some of my personal favorites from this incredible day! Congrats Taylor and Colby!

Aneeta & Omar | Great Falls Anniversary Session

I was so excited when Aneeta reached out to me about doing a sweet anniversary session. Aneeta and Omar just celebrated ten years of marriage! And she told me that she’s always said that she would want to do photos once they reached this milestone. Now I’m pretty positive that I’d like to do the same! They brought along their amazing kids, and I loved being able to document them, just as a couple, and also as a family. Ten years… that’s a lot to be proud of! Here are just a few of my favorites from our session at Great Falls!

Sophia and Mike | City Club of Washington Wedding

There really aren’t enough nice things I can say about Sophia and Mike! I always feel nervous my first wedding back at the start of a new wedding season, but especially the first one back after a baby. This wedding could not have been more perfect! I felt more like a friend then a photographer AND they both happen to be obsessed with Justin Timberlake! I mean, come on! I had actually met Sophia through a mutual friend at a concert, so I was so excited when I heard from her a few months later after she got engaged. Sophia’s energy is amazing! She’s so sweet and has the most infectious laugh! I couldn’t wait to meet Mike on their wedding day and see who this special guy was that she was going to spend her life with. The biggest thing that I loved about the two of them was how much FUN they have together! That was what stood out to me the most. Sophia and Mike, I hope that your marriage continues to be the biggest party! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!

Ethan | Mini Session

Ethan is seriously the sweetest thing! I absolutely love how serious he is, but found it sweet that if mom and dad were holding him, or looking at him, his little dimples would come out! It was a little bit rainy, but I thought the soft light really added to this session. And Ethan’s smile was pretty bright when it would shine through! :)

Eleanora | One!

I’ve photographed this family since their oldest, Royce, was just three months old! It has been such a joy to watch this family grow. At this point I walk into their home and feel just like an old friend. I can’t believe that Eleanora is already ONE! That went by so quickly! I’m so glad I was able to stop by right before her party to get some photos of her and her family. Happy Birthday, sweet girl!

Jay | One year!

In December we moved to an incredible neighborhood! We’re located in a cul-de-sac and literally all of our neighbors are families with small kids! So not only are we lucky, but our babies are SO lucky! We’ve really enjoyed getting to know everyone and I was so honored when Rita asked if I’d take some photos of her family since Jay had just turned one! (He’s Nash’s future BFF because they’re going to be surrounded by girls!) I actually had been looking at a spot located right in the front of our neighborhood, so it was pretty incredible being able to just throw my hair up, and walk out the door! Looking forward to watching Jay, and his sweet big sister Genevieve, grow up!

Zayn | Six Months!

I always enjoy my sessions with this sweet family! I can’t get over how big Zayn is getting and I absolutely love watching him with his older siblings! I’m so happy that warmer weather is here and that we were able to get outside for a while! I can’t wait for his one year session!

Bowen | Newborn Session

I loved meeting baby Bowen a few weeks ago! I actually had the honor of photographing his parents wedding, and then as a family of three, and now they’re a sweet family of four! Here are just a few of my favorites! All of the images of Bowen and Kinslee really melted my heart! I could have blogged a million!

Javery Family | Stone Bridge Park, Manassas, VA

I absolutely loved meeting the Javery family at Stone Bridge this summer! This sweet family of four is beautiful inside and out. I really enjoyed watching each of them with one another. There was so much love, my heart could have exploded!

Zahra is six months old! | Reston Family Photographer

I cannot get enough of this sweetie pie! Six months, as I’ve mentioned a million times before, is one of my FAVORITE ages to photograph! Zahra is sitting up, smiling, giggling, and loves her older brother! I adore this family, and it’s been such a pleasure to photograph them each year and capture both Zaiden and Zahra’s milestones!
