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...

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...

My favorite kind of sessions are with those couples that just make me laugh! And that's exactly what these two did! When Eileen and Thom laugh, it is contagious! And not to mention, their smiles and joy just light up the room...battlefield, in this case;-) It was such a gorgeous spring afternoon and we were only a couple months away from their big day! It was so fun walking around the battlefield and hearing more about the big day and even little...

All I wanted to do today was get a blog post up! I just wanted to do it for me and although it may be 9:30p on a Friday night, I am getting it up! It may not be posted when I probably should have had it posted, which was oh, probably about 11 hours ago but you know what, sometimes that's just life. And like I said to myself, "Well, it's already past "publishing and posting" time, so what's the point of doing it now? It's too late!!". Wait, what?!? It's never too late!! Better late than never, right?? This may...

Ohhhhh, champagne toasts, a sparkling ring, a fun-loving, laughable couple, "All you need is LOVE" sign, and on the water?? It doesn't get much better than this for an engagement session! I mean, what better way to start off a session with a toast to their engagement and soon-to-be husband and wife?? LOVE! And not to mention, how much fun these two are and just constantly make each other laugh and their love for each other is just so apparent!! And, as if that...

I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this girl! And I will probably continue to say that with upcoming posts of her and Jamie, but it's true! Esra is one of those people that just lights up a room when she walks in and her energy and smile is just contagious!! You can't help but be in the best mood with a smile on your face!! And not to mention, she is absolutely STUNNING!!! Because Esra and Jamie were getting married in Cancun and we couldn't exactly...
