About two weeks ago I had an idea to gift my parents with a fun anniversary photo session. The last time I remember doing a specific photoshoot or my parents was 2011! Which is just not acceptable as a photographer 😄 Also, please do yourself a favor and look at the photos from 2011 and have a […]

It’s so hard to believe that our sweet niece is already a year old! It seems like it wasn’t that long ago we were meeting her for the first time, all tiny and squishy and new. She has grown into an adorable little toddler, and she’s so smart! Her first birthday party was on Saturday, […]

Not only was this the first snow of 2020, but it was also the first snow all winter! The past few years in Virginia, it hasn’t been unusual for most of our big snows to happen January-March. But we typically get at least a small amount of snow in December! But 2019 was just too […]
