I've been keeping journals since I was in the 3rd grade and I'm so glad to share some of my most intimate life moments with you here!  Here, you'll find inspirational stories of clients, my journey as a wife and first-time mother and other adventures I have that makes my world go 'round. So please, sit back, grab some coffee ( or my personal favorite, a good ol' fashioned Arnold Palmer!) and enjoy exploring my latest work! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

welcome to my

journal!

STEPHANIE + BRANDON| A LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE WEDDING

From the moment I met them, I knew Stephanie and Brandon’s wedding was going to be something REALLY special.

BEAUTY PORTRAITS FOR DIONNE | VIRGINIA BEACH, VA
