Thinking back to March when my 1st wedding of the year was supposed to be a 3 day celebration and the week prior to the wedding my couple was forced to postpone due to restrictions. I remember how much this news stung for me, the wedding industry, and of course my couple. I cried a […]

2020 Behind the Scenes

Fall Mini Sessions 2020

With everything 2020 brought, postponed weddings were one of them. Joe and Reshmi had already been planning their wedding for 2 years when COVID shutdown the US in March. They made the incredibly difficult decision one week prior to their Osprey’s Woodbridge Virginia Wedding date to postpone until November. In the blink of an eye, […]

Rowan’s Wild One Cakesmash in Winchester

On a gorgeous evening in July 2020, I photographed Tanie and Brad’s Summer COVID Manassas Battlefield Maternity Session. I drove from Winchester to Manassas and on the way there I drove through rain, clouds, and sunshine. I was so afraid their session would be overly cloudy or rainy but when the sun popped out as […]

Last year, I had all intentions of blogging this gorgeous wedding. I was waiting to blog and post Caitlin and Steven’s Fall RiverView at Occoquan wedding because it was so gorgeous I wanted it to be my last blog of the 2019. Then life with an infant was a much harder at that time than […]

Newborn Alex 10 Days New

What a crazy beginning to spring we have had! I’m so thankful I was able to capture this Spring Woodbridge Cherry Blossom Maternity Session before Virginia’s governor ordered a stay-at-home Executive Order until June! The corona virus turned everyone’s lives upside down. For some it caused crazy anxiety. I can’t imagine being 35 weeks pregnant […]
