Sierra + Michael | Wedding | Bealeton, VA

I got to celebrate and photograph a sweet wedding a few weeks ago! The wedding took place at Ritchie Lake near the 4th of July weekend.

Keller Family | Portrait Session

Over Thanksgiving weekend, I had the privilege of photography a WONDERFUL family named the Kellers. The mom of the crew, Kim, was one of Kyptan’s Kindergarten teachers! Kyptan would cling to every word she spoke to him. You have no idea how many times he would come home and say, “can I color something for […]
