Pets

Stacey & Finn were my 3rd session during my week slam packed with shoots. This was my first pet photography session. Most of my sessions with animals involve horses and perhaps have a dog or two thrown in every once in a while. It was so much fun to do just a girl and her dog, […]

I’ve known Cassie for years. I met her through riding of course, but once I moved Bree to a different barn in Chesapeake, I didn’t see her as much. It was definitely great to catch up with her during her shoot. You can always count on riding to introduce you to awesome people who end […]

A New Adventure

As many of you know, my husband Justin got out of the Navy in the beginning of 2013 after serving for 12 years. His military career was full of excitement, achievements, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. It is definitely something to brag about, even though he hates it when I do. Since then he has been working […]
