Kristen & Sean l Engaged

Just a sweet classy session in downtown Richmond. Does Kristen dress amazing or what?! Sean made me laugh nearly the entire time. All these smiles are real....they felt kinda silly which resulted in contagious laughter. That's my sneaky little trick.

Freedom Tour l Personal

I was so surprised this morning to see photos and blog posts up already from Showit's Freedom Tour. My fellow photographer buddies are on the BALL lemme tell ya. So awesome. I won't bore you with all of the techy details, but it was resourceful, inspiring and the perfect kick in the pants to get my creative juices flowing even more. I've said it before and I'll say it again...the community between photographers (95% of us) have this unwritten bond and invest in each others lives. We want to know about each other and share in our passion. That is unique among trades.

So...I attended the DC stop along the tour and I'm so very glad that I did. Ica & I tag-teamed the trip and had an absolute blast. She is brilliant and the cutest thing since poptarts. I also had my first metro experience...one I can very confidently say that I will never. ever. ever. forget.

Michelle Cross & I. She's a real sweetheart and I think she looks like Julia Stiles.

I was SO excited to meet Katelyn James. I've been following her blog for a while and saw her from across the room and made a beeline to hello. She's is just precious. Her picture of us is kiiiind of way better.

The element of thought l Personal

I was chatting with my cousin Kristin about blogging on Sunday afternoon. I mentioned something about no one reading it and it somehow led into how obsessive I am about blogging daily and that when I don't blog daily I apologize immensely for missing a day. So yeah. I'm sorry for not blogging yesterday. I was in DC for the Showit Freedom Tour (which was friggin awesome) and I will blog about that tomorrow.

But until then, have you ever thought much about being thoughtful? It's kind of one of those qualities that is slightly overlooked. Here's the deal. Vicky & Damien want their photos taken. I get pumped, plan and meet them for their photos. Take photos, get paid, edit photos, put in mail, they open them and love them. Usually that's where it ends, which is absolutely fine. BUT A few weeks after, I get the sweetest little envelope in the mail from the two of them.

Photobucket

That small gesture completely made my week...It let me know that people see my photos for more than my bread & butter, they saw them as part of my heart. Which is way more awesome. This can be applied to every aspect of life. Taking that extra step to make someones life better will never backfire on you. Invest.

April & John l Wedding

Talk about a true sweetheart, inside & out. That's April. I love how her personality and kindness shined through all of her wedding day details. This wedding was relaxed, cheerful and a true example of how things should be when you're in love. Oh and John, you're pretty awesome, too.
