In front of the Camera

99% of my time is spent behind the camera-Taking pictures of every noun possible. In hopes to make my site awesome and vamp it up a bit, I'm in the process of re-designing and getting some head shots of my awesome team and I.

Here's a sneak peak of the photos to come.

So I have a problem. 

I have this small infatuation with purses...I have really bad withdrawals if one is not purchased after a certain amount of time. (like....2 weeks) Kelly & Nick will attest to this. 

SOOOOO what's a girl trying to save money to do?!

Here's a simple affordable idea to spruce up a not-so-new purse very adorable-y (yes..that's a word)

Flower from ny&c for $4.99

That's what I like to see...completed photo jobs!

Here's where I was last night. 

A fellow photographer and friend of mine, Jennifer Reams, asked me to second a wedding she was shooting that was 100% alllllll out firetrucks. Clearly red white and black were the colors of choice and they thought of EVERYTHING. Even the food was themed red black and white! okay...that last part is exaggerating just a little bit. 

I haven't decided if I'm going to post some (if any) of the photos because it isn't the style of wedding I typically book, but we shall see. 

What do you guys think?

Nicholas and I are off to shortpump today--we are in serious need of some shopping. yes...we. 

Happy Saturday!

okay...wrong one.
inspiration: a thing or person that inspires

I have decided to completely re-design my recently re-designed tiffany blue room/office.

I'm going for elegant-modern-simple. Since I meet with people all the time for photo sessions, I feel I need to have somewhere cool for them to its a really good excuse for me to buy pretty new things and pick out awesome colors.

now I just need to convince Kourt to help me paint again...

Sundays at Meemaws

Ever since I can remember, my family and I have gone over to meemaws for lunch every other Sunday. We all laugh, make fun of each other (Mostly Karen and I) and eat yummy food.

My aunt Karen has two very lively little boys and they always bring lots of laughs to the table. This past Sunday, we ventured out to the garden for some home-grown veggies.

we found a turtle!

Carter cheesin' after he found the turtle

Such pretty colors, I couldn't resist. Besides..I've learned to deal with the remarks about silly objects;)

Fruit and ice cream for desert.

zackary quite enjoyed everything about the cherry...except the 'big seed on the middle'

THEN...some nap provoking activity.

Nick is so good with the boys :)

Me spinning Carter..hopefully he didnt throw up when we left :/

cookout at Emily & Darius' house tonight ..yippie!

Emily & Darius

Emily and Darius are engaged! Fun Fun Fun! We had a blast in downtown Richmond laughing, walking far (very far) and visiting the Irish Pub. yum yum :) Simple couple who just loved being around each other. May I also mention that we all safely survived the treacherous walk up and down the many Richmond stairs. I look forward to shooting their wedding in September!

Nick came with me again to Second..he did a fabulous job. I am so unbelievably lucky!
Here's a little his/her view.


clearly, he won.
loving the sun flare! I think I talked about it for about 10 minutes.

a little lovin' under the train

emily's bling bling

This was right before he bit her cheek...

He simply adores her

The happy couple about to tread the stairs of doom.

and just for a little humor...
