They also attended the same church and their families were friends. They were even co-coaches for their summer swim team. Coaching "six-and-unders" sounds li[...]

  • This past august, I began my journey to become a yoga teacher. I expected to learn a lot about poses, alignment, anatomy, and the eight limb path. However, I never expected to meet so many wonderful, strong, talented, beautiful, and caring women. One of my fellow teachers, and friends, was kind enough to come over f[...]

  • Winter Berries

  • I haven't gotten to shoot for myself lately. Between work, yoga, and photography jobs, I haven't had the change to just pick up my camera and shoot around. I happened to have my camera on me while I was walking home today and I saw these beautiful, frosty blue berries out of the corner of my eye. Usually I don't shoot [...]

  • It was a race against the weather ! Sarah, Matt, and I had an original date for the engagement shoot, but the weather decided not to cooperate with us. So, we rescheduled the shoot for October 10. However, when the tenth came and we saw that it was supposed to rain in the afternoon, we both jumped in our respective car[...]

  • Kelsey and Chris wanted to take advantage of the beautiful VA fall colors (can you blame them?!), so I drove up to meet them at Big Meadows Lodge.

  • Jamie is the big sister I never had. I met Jamie freshman year of college when we both got into Note-oriety at the same time. We were a cappella newbie sisters then and she is still my sister now. She is so wise, smart, kind, honest, talented, beautiful, and funny. Oh, and did I mention, this girl can SAAAAANG. I love [...]
Alejandra & Brandon | Engagement
  • Alejandra & Brandon | Engagement

  • I always love it when my photography life and my a cappella life collide. This time, a Note sister (by relation) reached out to me ! Alejandra's older sister, Adrianna, was in my a cappella group in college. So I was beyond excited when Alejandra sent me an email. Alejandra and Brandon met in August of 2011. Brandon[...]

  • I LOVE GETTING TO TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS ! About five months ago, I traveled up to DE to meet Maegan and Kyle for their engagement shoot.  I had a blast exploring around with them and getting pizza and ice cream !  Since the engagement shoot, Maegan and I had been chatting over email A LOT about the big day. She wa[...]
