Many of you know that I’ve been interested in studio portraits for a while. Well, I’m finally going to officially offer Studio Sessions as a regular service. More about the vision for these sessions in the coming weeks, but to celebrate, February 19th, I’m holding Studio Sessions all day! This opportunity is limited to 6 slots, and it’s quite a steal…so whether you need simplified head shots, you’re a couple looking for an editorial engagement, or a bride looking for a fashion inspired bridal shoot, check out the details below!

Just to sweeten the deal, if you book within the first 24 hours, you’ll be able to book this session for $299. After that, the rate will go up to $350!

All you need to do is email me, and we’ll go from there! …But I can’t end this post without exclaiming how AMAZING it will be to have Emily Hudspeth along, offering hair and makeup for each client. This is such a great value, y’all. Will someone take MY picture?!

Carter and Winston’s wedding was just recently featured in Virginia Living! If you find yourself in a bookstore, you should check it out! They had an amazing wedding that was styled so perfectly! A few weeks before the big day, we met at Main Street Train Station for her bridals; I’m so happy I can finally share some of them! Isn’t Carter stunning?

Tori, a true local artist, approached me for some updated head shots for her website! So, on a cool day in October, we went to her favorite nook of Richmond and wandered. You have to check out her new brand that just launched: Tori Watson! There is also a great giveaway that has products from Tori’s favorite local Richmond businesses!

As Christmas gift to each other, Sam and Sara met me in Williamsburg for a couple’s portrait session. Sara is in school in Virginia and Sam is studying in Georgia, so I’m glad we were able to find time for this!¬†We wandered around Waller Mill Park and laughed out loud the entire time. The happiness these two emit is contagious – my cheeks still hurt from smiling so much!
