This past weekend, after a SUPER busy Saturday second shooting a wedding (more to come on that later!), I headed out to Smithfield to my friend Jamie’s house for some maternity pictures of her. You won’t have to take my word for it when I say that she makes being pregnant look good! She is gorgeous and glowing, and her husband Dustin is so obviously excited about their baby girl who will be here soon! View full post »
A friend told me a while back that she was planning a baby shower for Ashley and asked if I could take pictures during the shower, and a few maternity portraits before or after. I did Ashley’s engagement session a while back, so I was thrilled for the opportunity. Here are a few shots from the shower itself and then our quick portrait session afterward (we were racing the rain that was coming!). View full post »
I’ve been an admirer of Katelyn James’ for a while now. She’s a wedding photographer based out of Richmond, Virginia. Her style is fresh, classic, and colorful, and I am constantly pushed to improve just by seeing how beautiful wedding photography can be. I admire not only Katelyn’s work, but how open and honest she is on her blog, so much so that I kind of feel like we’re friends… even though we’ve never met. Is that weird? I think I realized just how deep this one-sided friendship went when I was out shopping one day and thought to myself, “Katelyn would really like those earrings.” Seriously Beth? Anyway, Katelyn hosts workshops for wedding photography twice a year and she is GIVING AWAY one seat to this Spring’s workshop to a photographer who shares their “story.” So here’s mine. I’ll warn you, it’s a bit of a long one! View full post »
I am very excited that the first session that I am EVER going to blog about is one that is so special to me. I met Elisa sometime in the summer before my last year of college and we became roommates because I knew one of the girls she currently lived with (love you Megan!) and they had an opening for another roommate. I’ll never forget my bewilderment when she used the phrase (word?) “bangarang” in conversation during this first meeting.
