Fixer Upper | Interior styled house shoot


I love doing magazine sessions, and have in particular wanted to do more interior shoots, in the style of what I love reading & seeing in Better Homes & Gardens. Imagine my excitement when Christy contacted me to ask if I could do some interior photos of a house she and her husband had just finished flipping. She described it to me as a Joanna Gaines-style fixer upper, with lots of white, shiplap and subway tiles. I was SO in! I've been thinking of doing something like this for about a year, but I didn't know how to go about finding the right house. I'm thrilled that I could partner up with Christy to make this happen. Be sure to check out her blog as well over at The Harper House. Better Homes and Gardens kitchen

Amber + David | Allerton Park engagement session | Monticello


I loved this session with Amber + David! It was really muggy, but these two powered through and didn't even look too melty! The worst part was probably when a bug flew into my eye, but Amber came to my rescue with some Visine. :) They chose two outfits -- one more casual and one a little dressier, but they all followed the same color scheme which made this session flow seamlessly. Amber + David even hung around with me for a bit longer than anticipated since an amazing sunset was developing on the horizon and I couldn't pass it up! I'm so glad they stuck it out with me for an extra half hour! I can't wait for their wedding in October! Sun Singer engagement photos
