Jeanelle + Kris |Expecting! | Middleburg, VA Maternity Photographer

You may remember Jeanelle and Kris from their gorgeous wedding back in 2013 at WeatherLea Farm.  This couple has a special place in my heart, not only as clients, but as my chiropractors who have seen me through two pregnancies (Jeanelle is amazing and will keep you feeling great throughout the aches and pains of pregnancy) as well as ongoing back maintenance which has a big part in me being able to do my job–carrying around tons of equipment, being on your feet for long stretches of time and twisting into odd positions are not necessarily easy on the back!

We did Jeanelle’s session at the Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast. I love the light there, and it was also where the couple was engaged.  Enjoy!

It’s Been Awhile…

While I typically don’t post many personal updates here, today, it feels appropriate!  You see, it’s been awhile.  Awhile since I have updated here regularly. I used to be awesome at blogging every event, session, and project but lately, you could say I’ve been distracted.  Mainly by this little man:

This is Henry, who was born last summer.  As anyone who has kids knows, pregnancy, working, plus having other kids, then actually having a newborn just takes so much time and effort. Add in a healthy dose of sleep deprivation, and it’s hard to get just about anything done!  While all this time I have been working regularly, I was always so focused on delivering everything to my clients,  that I somehow got out of the habit of blogging on the regular.  I’m ready to change that now!  I’ll be going back through everything in these next few months and blogging all that I’ve missed.  There have been A LOT of events, sessions, and changes so I have much to catch up on!

One of the first things you might notice is my new logo!  I love my old logo, but had had it for so very long, I was ready for a change.  I worked with Laura Beth from Cotton Row Creative for my refreshed look, and I love it.

I am still in the process of switching everything over, so you might notice some older images and blog posts will still bear the old look, but that will change as I catch up on my blogging!

Fall Mini Sessions 2016

Though I hadn’t announced it here on the blog, I did make an announcement on my Facebook page that my latest little bundle, Henry, arrived in July.  Since his birth, I have realized even more the importance of simplifying!  In keeping with the trend, I am offering super simple fall sessions this year!  You have the choice of two options: the Classic which includes a product credit that you can use on your online gallery for things such as prints, holiday cards and photo gifts, or, the Contemporary, which includes your choice of 15 high resolution images with print release.  Sessions are the same format as in the past, 20 minutes and will be held at Legacy Park.  Instead of designating special days, I will schedule them based on your (and my) availability for weekends and evenings.  I’ll offer these through the end of November, or until the weather no longer cooperates! Email to secure your appointment!


Triina + Thinh | Married! | A Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Wedding

Triina & Thinh were married at the always lovely Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast in Middleburg, VA.  Though the couple resides in the Pacific Northwest, they met and fell in love in the DC area, so it was only natural to hold their wedding here!  Beautiful weather coupled with T&T’s relaxed and fun-loving wedding party, made for a great day.  Some beautiful light didn’t hurt either!  Congratulations, Triina and Thinh!  Best wishes for many happy years to come!
