What can I say about them, they’ve been long supporters of my business from the early days of shooting in my garage!  I’ve seen their daughters mature into gorgeous young ladies and now I can call them my sorority sisters!  And outside of my own parents they are #marriagegoals!! Thank you to the Gaines family […]

Howard University Engagement Session | JD and Dalayna


This year was my first chance to attend WPPI.  I’ll write a separate blog post on my experience soon.  While there, several of my  friends and I got the itch to want to shoot in the desert.  We contacted a few couples but due to the hectic nature of everyone’s schedule during WPPI, we could […]

Fun Shots with Britney Jeanine | Virginia Photographer

When I look at where I have achieved success, I can honestly say that I never did it alone. There was always someone there that believed in me, motivated me, encouraged me, […]
