I couldn’t think of a better way to start off 2015 than with this Richmond engagement with Morgan + Todd! These two are just the epitome of head over heels in love and their love for each other just radiates! Like you see them walking down the street and you can’t help but “awww”!! When I met them down in Carytown, they were walking hand in hand and they just looked like they had been together forever! I truly believe that distance makes the heart grow founder and having to have a long distance relationship, Matt and I…

Does anyone else struggle with constantly being on social media? Maybe borderline obsessed? Dare I even say addicted? I have been struggling with this for quite awhile now and I can honestly say, the struggle is real! I had been thinking about it for the past year that I just wanted to not constantly be on my phone. It is all the time! Like, ALL the time! It’s the first thing you do in the morning because the first thing you think about when you wake up is “What is everyone…

  • LOVE this post. Such a wonderful reminder, especially when we’re with our kids. I always tell myself “you’ll never get this day back”, and put down my phone (unless I want to take a picture of them), and try really hard to be off when they’re awake!ReplyCancel

    I so get this. I reached a point where I realized that I could not spend the majority of my time trying to keep up with 500 people who I like but do not see in my “real” life. I had to make some big changes when it came to facebook. I always thought scrolling facebook was “relaxing” (and am still guilty of thinking this way) but as you said, facebook can really make people feel discouraged. When people say, “Oh your life seems so perfect” I think, “You mean my facebook life? Isn’t everyone’s life perfect on facebook? That’s not real life!” ;-)ReplyCancel

    Thanks so much for the reminder and encouragement to spend less time on social media :)ReplyCancel

Thinking of getting a parent album as part of your wedding package? Or as a gift later? Having gotten an album for my parents when I was a bride, I can tell you that I am so glad that I did! I absolutely LOVE looking through ours every time I visit my parents! It is simple and tells the whole story of our wedding day and it brings me back to that day every time! Yes, we have our album too but it is still so much fun to see theirs when we…

Am I the only one or is anyone else noticing that sometimes people you KNOW you follow, don’t show up in your feed?!? For some reason especially, my best friend’s posts (and others) are not always showing up in my feed…not matter HOW far I scroll back! I promise I know how to use instagram so I don’t know what’s going on!! :-) But for anyone that is new to the blog or new to following me on instagram at @kristimckeag, I did a little…

Oh, I can’t even tell you how much I love this family and how I loved getting to capture some new family pics for them at Manassas Battlefield when I was up there in December!! They hold a very special place in my heart and although I don’t do many family sessions anymore, I couldn’t say no to this one! :-) Not only is Kristen my best friend and Ella my Goddaughter and I just love Brian because, but I wanted to help them share a very exciting…

      Aweeee, you are too sweet, Jillian!! Thank you! And isn’t that the cutest sign?! :-)ReplyCancel

I have to be honest…as I am sitting here writing this, I am still at a loss of words and a starting point! But I am diving in and starting this year off right instead of sitting back and putting things off and then waiting and then continuing to wait and then as easy as that, weeks and months have gone by and nothing has been done or shown for and nothing is on the blog! As I had talked about before in a previous post, I used to love blogging! Blogging on…

It felt like so long ago that I had met with these two so needless to say, I was so excited to see them ANDDDD we were doing their engagement session in Charlottesville!! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this place…it brings back some great memories of when Matt went to grad school there so walking on campus with Aaron and Brittany felt a little bit like home:-) We started off on campus and hit some gorgeous light right on the lawn and then headed to downtown Charlottesville on the Mall and walked around a little bit…
