Fall Family Session 11 Years Later

Last year because of the government shutdown, Nicole and Thomas weren’t able to have their dream wedding at the RiverView at Occoquan. They ended up eloping in southern Virginia and now I’m finding myself enjoying couple’s sessions I have with them this year. This first session was a fun couple’s session and a 30th birthday […]

I was blown away by her style: classic, romantic, and […]

On a gorgeous evening in July 2020, I photographed Tanie and Brad’s Summer COVID Manassas Battlefield Maternity Session.
