A Homegrown Love Story This Roan Mountain elopement was an absolute dream. About a year ago, my friend Katy told me she had given my name to a sweet bride and to watch for her inquiry. Sure enough, shortly after that I got an inquiry from Caitlin! She talked about their plans to elope on […]
A Homegrown Love Story One of my favorite things is being a home birth photographer and I am so happy to bring the birth story of Harbor Quinn over to the blog! So, in the past when I have shared birth stories, I’ve written them from my perspective but recently (since playing catchup up on […]
A Homegrown Love Story This Virginia wedding with Matt and Alyssa was an absolutely stunning day.

A Homegrown Love Story I cannot believe it’s been a whole year since Mike and I and the kids loaded up for a weekend of celebrating Gracie and Aaron South Carolina wedding down in the beautiful low country!! This was an extra special wedding for me because I have known Gracie since she was Ellie’s […]
A Homegrown Love Story Hope and Justin got married at the gorgeous Melody Acres at Vincent’s Vineyard here in Lebanon, VA. Melody Acres, their beautiful wedding venue, is tucked right up into our mountains and nestled up against Vincent’s Vineyard. It was such a beautiful venue and it was so much fun having them do […]
I can’t tell you how much I am loving this Honaker Virginia Backyard family photo shoot! Every single one of these backyard photo shoots have been so fun! I met Hannah last summer at the Farmer’s Market in our little town of Lebanon. She was a friend of my cousin’s wife and she had stopped […]
You guys need to see this Abingdon Virginia backyard family photo shoot! I love this family so much! Just a few short years ago Rachel fell in love with this guy named Evan and he brought her back to southwest Virginia and they got married! I was the lucky gal to be their photographer and […]
The McIntyres are one of the sweetest, hardest working families I know!
They run a dairy farm nestled into the mountains of southwest Virginia and just this past month they became farm owners of their beautiful farm! I couldn’t be more excited for them!!
I spent the afternoon with them capturing life on their farm milking cows and collecting eggs and just exploring!
Every year I get the privilege to photograph this family and it just gets sweeter and more fun each time! We hung out in the cornfield, checked out the corn to see how ready it was to harvest, then we headed down to the river! The kids fished and skipped rocks and we even roasted marshmallows till the sun was long gone.
I have known this family for somewhere around 14 years. They were one of the very first families I ever photographed way back in 2011 when I was fundraising to move to Peru. (Let’s just say I am SO thankful they gave me another shot because #neverstoplearning haha)
Matt + Alyssa are one of those couples who are a little quiet but their love for each other radiates from their faces. They are so sweet and fun and just absolutely in love with each other. Their joy was so contagious! Plus, there were COWS and hay bales and a gorgeous sunset and did I mention cows?! When I got into the car that night my heart was just so full!
Lydia’s senior session may have had the most gorgeous golden sunset and a garden full of flowers, but that wasn’t what truly made it so wonderful!
This spring Mike and I ventured into the world of flower farming! Last month I had the idea to open up our mini flower farm on select dates to offer Flower Farm Minis and let me tell you, I am SO glad I did! This is just the first of several farm mini sessions and it was amazing!!
