When I put the word out that I was headed down to North Carolina, former neighbor and fellow photographer Kathleen reached out to me about doing some headshots and fun portraits for her business! It’s always a blast to be able to collaborate and brainstorm with another photographer and we had such a great time playing around in the woods and then heading over to finish the shoot with some sweet horses! Kathleen’s daughter, Amelia, joined us…can you believe that when I met Amelia for the first time, she was three years old?!?!?! WHERE does the time go?!?!?!  We just had to sneak in a few fun shots of the two of them as well!

    Cindy! You did a wonderful job! The back lighting is so soft and I love the rays and flare you captured! The colors are beautiful and I love the vintage tone on the BW images! You are so talented! I am so lucky to have you photograph me! You really captured my spirit and I think this will give my clients a glimpse into my personality! Exactly what I was hoping! Your the best! XXOOReplyCancel

As I traveled south toward North Carolina, I did a super fast stopover in Williamsburg, Virginia! It’s a special place to me…many of my fondest childhood memories are from the period of time my family lived here and then, later, it became such a special place to Justin and I that we chose to get married there! While our wedding took place amid Williamsburg’s famous holiday decor in late fall, this time I was here in time to see the very first trees budding and the stir of life awakening to spring warmth! I had a session in North Carolina that evening, so I woke in the wee hours and wandered Colonial Williamsburg as the sun broke over the horizon…so magical!

    Love these pictures.ReplyCancel

While headed south a couple of weeks ago, I was able to spend a little time photographing Sarah and Paul near their home in Washington DC! While it was a blustery day and our time was limited, it was such a blast to be able to experience this slice of one of my favorite cities with them! Here are a  few of my favorites…

    Absolutely beautiful photographs. You two are so photogenic, and the photographer captures your beautiful energy so perfectly — it’s a joy to look at them…over and over and over again!ReplyCancel

Have you guys missed me? I’ve been adventuring down south, beginning with a mini-session with Sarah and Paul in Washington DC and continuing on through Williamsburg, VA and onto North Carolina! Weddings and engagements and portrait sessions followed by a technology-free few days feeding my soul with the sounds of rushing water and birdsong and mountain trees blowing in the spring breeze in the Smokies. It was glorious to be on the road and I can’t wait to share all of this with you over the next few weeks! In the meantime, here’s a little peek at what’s to come!
