Washington D.C. Engagement Photos

Courtney and Mike asked me to take their engagement photos early this year.  It was still technically winter in D.C. and the Cherry Blossoms weren’t quite in bloom yet, but we managed to chose a day when the weather was behaving and I think we got a few really great shots.  Courtney and Mike (and […]

Family Photos at Fort Monroe

I met Derek and Allison almost two years ago now.  When we met, it was just the two of them. They were getting ready to celebrate their fifth anniversary.  Fast forward to 2017, they added a dog and a baby to the equation almost simultaneously, and now they’re getting ready to leave town so Derek […]

Visiting Arizona: Sedona

The drive from the Grand Canyon to Winslow is as desolate as it gets. Once we got through Flagstaff, the trees fell away and the desert stretched to the horizon, interrupted only periodically by random rock formations and jagged hills. We got to Meteor Crater in about 2 hours. The wind was howling over the […]

Visiting Arizona: The South Rim of the Grand Canyon

Visiting Washington DC: Highlights from our recent trips

Last May, my mom moved to DC. She got a new job with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. It was an opportunity she couldn’t turn down, so just a few months after Mike and I moved to Hampton Roads, she relocated three hours north. Mike and I went to visit early in the summer. He’d […]

Visiting West Virginia: Our Annual Trip to Snowshoe

We took our annual week-long trip to Snowshoe, WV over New Years. There wasn’t any snow on the ground but the slope conditions were pretty good. We stayed somewhere new and had deer visitors every morning. The other people at the hotel would throw food from their balconies and tempting as it was to join […]
