Today we’re going to talk Bucket List Photo Locations. I’ve been in business since March of 2017 so I’ve done a LOT of photo sessions. When you’re first starting out, you shoot anywhere that the client wants. Oh, I’ve shot in so many places that I look back on now and shake my head at. […]

As a former postpartum and newborn nurse, breastfeeding is near and dear to my heart and, at every opportunity, I offer breastfeeding photo sessions.

Today we’re going to talk about when you should reschedule your photo session. I have to be honest here…I’m not one of those hard core, heavy duty photographers who will shoot in tornados and gale force winds and epic snow storms. That’s just not my style and I know that about myself. My clients know […]

Hello from your friendly neighborhood light and airy photographer! Usually my blog is a place for clients (past and potential!) to check out my work! Today, however, I’m writing a post for other photographers. See, this past weekend, a dream of mine was realized – my husband built me an LED light wall in my […]

I have been wanting to shoot a session in Old Town Alexandria for a while now. There’s this alleyway (let’s call it the Alexandria, VA, alleyway, shall we?) that I see all my wedding photographer friends utilize and I started dreaming about shooting a session there.
