Truffle and Leroy Brown Family Album
I've been holding onto this blog post for a while and couldn't wait to share with you. I absolutely love this custom designed heirloom album designed for a Northern Virginia family. The colors are wonderful and compliment each other so perfectly. It's pure album love.
Brrrr...It's Cold Outside
It's winter outside...as a matter of act it's extremely cold and snowing. However, when family members travel back to Northern Virginia for holidays such as Thanksgiving or Christmas, many families still want to have an extended family photo. Just not in the cold.
You're first questions may be where can we go to get a great family picture during this time of year? Do we have to go outside in the cold to get a family picture? Do we have to travel to a studio or will the photographer come to us? These are all great questions.
Northern Virginia Photographer - January Goals 2019
The first of the year is a time when many people (myself included) reflect on their lives and establish goals for themselves and for their families; in addition, business owners work on their goals for their respective companies. This past week, I’ve been thinking about what goals I want to establish for my photography business.
New Goals for the New Year
Happy New Year! It seems like these words come around faster and faster each year. With each new year it seems like many people reflect on their yearly goals and resolutions. I know some of the most popular goals and resolutions are losing weight, going to the gym, eating better, taking a family picture, a family vacation, and having better relationships. I can’t argue with any of these and some are on my list to improve as well.
Another thing I look forward to each year is the NCAA Football Championship game. I’ll be cheering for Alabama. Yes, Alabama…if you didn’t know the college is located in my hometown. So, I'll be cheering for the hometown team. I'll also be making my family's favorite cookies.
Northern Virginia Couple celebrates 50th Wedding Anniversary
Happy New Year,
It’s amazing to look back upon 2018 and reflect upon the different families I had the honor to photograph last year in Northern Virginia. As a family photographer, it’s always an honor when families contact me to photograph their legacy. This past year, I received a telephone call from Claudia wanting to have 50th wedding pictures taken. Photographing this couple is a highlight for me.
Happy New Year!!
It's hard to believe the year 2018 is coming to a close in less than four hours. Where did the year go? I'm so grateful so many Northern Virginia families and military members trusted me to photograph your family memories and military ceremonies.
I hope your New Year is filled with family, friends, and fun. I pray your 2019 brings you endless love, joy, laughter, and memories. Here’s to a great year to come!
Sending Christmas cards to family and friends is like an unspoken tradition across the United States. It doesn't matter where you live, many people look forward to receiving christmas cards from family members and friends you may not have seen in a while. This is especially exciting for military families, as we are typically servicing (OConus or Conus) in areas away from our immediate and/or extended families. Have you taken your family's portrait to send out your latest Christmas card?
I'm excited to announce The Headshot Marathon on January 10 in Northern Virginia. The headshot marathon is luxury event designed for the busy professional. Experience a full branding makeover for your business. In today's social media market, brand management starts with YOU.
It's amazing to see how fast this year seems to be going...it's Thanksgiving next week. What are your plans? Will you cook an extravagant meal with a Turkey and all the fixins for your family? If you're a military family, will you be traveling back home to spend time with your extended family?
I'm thrilled we'll get an opportunity to experience the new F.A.O. Schwarz during this holiday season in New York City (see video below); as well as all the other things/places New York City has to offer for the holidays.
For today's Friday Fives, I wanted to share five reasons why I'm thankful. Just a quick glimpse of the news and it's a quick reminder to be grateful and thankful. Here are my top five reasons I'm thankful.
A Salute to Military Veterans
On this Veterans Day, I want to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who has served and is currently serving. This country honors and thanks you for your service. In 1918, World World I came to an end and Veterans Day became a national holiday to honor all of those who give of themselves. As the daughter of a Veteran, a Veteran myself, and a spouse of an Air Force Officer, I honor you!
