PORTRAITS | Nick & Hannah – A spring session in Lynchburg under the cherry blossoms

April 15, 2015

I have Yankee roots and I was born and raised in New England, Connecticut to be specific.  I’ve lived south of the Mason-Dixon line since I began attending Liberty University in the fall of 2004.  I may be biased but in my opinion, Virginia has nothing on New England when it comes to the beauty of the […]

This session literally has some of my favorites!   New favorite images, a favorite location, some of my favorite people – it’s all here!  Brittany & Weston have such bright personalities!  These two just enjoy being with each other so much (as they should be!) that their joy is contagious!  I think it’s that fact that […]

I really enjoy shooting high school seniors! They are full of excitement and anticipation as they prepare to leave high school and that comes across in their sessions!  Of course, a huge part of shooting seniors is including their personal interests or accomplishments in their session!  This can even include their prom gowns!   I want […]

I met Erica two years ago when she was my sister’s Resident Assistant partner at Liberty University!   My sister was a senior and Erica, a junior.  The two of them soon became great friends!  Brittany’s graduation in 2012 and subsequent move to our house enabled Erica to remain in our lives for this year as […]

BRIDALS | Jacqueline around a snowy Lynchburg

March 25, 2013

I’ve lived in Lynchburg for about 10 years now (including my time at Liberty University).   It doesn’t snow much and when it does it’s gone in a few hours.  So, the fact that it snowed all day and stayed put was more like my home state of Connecticut than Virginia!  I’ve been dying to shoot […]

My sister Alex stayed in Lynchburg for Spring Break and has been going a little stir crazy at our house all week.  She’s been bugging me to do a photo session.  With all the pictures of her on my Facebook page, you know she’s always up for it!  I sure didn’t mind testing out my […]
