I have to say, this summer has been AHHH-MAZINGGG!! I spent the last week of July in the Catskills Mountains attending a Feminist Photo Vacay. Yep! Sounds amazing? Yeah, it really was! Over the course of a week I met an incredible group of feminist folx, lounged poolside at an EPIC house in the mountains, drank way too much sparkling water and ended our time together capturing magic at Scribner’s Lodge. Scribner’s Lodge is stunning! I would honestly love to go back just to relax. The decor, aesthetic, staff and landscape was phenomenal.
Something I love, ESPECIALLY during the winter months, are in-home sessions. I met Dorota and Dwight at their home in Richmond for their engagement session. As soon as I walked in and saw all of Dorota’s beautiful plants I knewwww that they would be sitting right in the plant corner for our session haha. I mean, it’s just so lovely!!!
This past summer I had the amazing opportunity to associate photograph a wedding for Lia Everette Photography at the stunning Raspberry Plain Manor in Leesburg, Virginia. The whole entire day was beautiful, even with the rain. A first look took place in a secret garden gasp! Yes, a secret garden!!! It was AHH-mazing and the couple’s excitement and love for each other was swoon material! The rest of the day was filled with so much laughter, drinks, kick-ass dance moves and a huge sparkler exit.
Our time from beginning to end flowed effortlessly as the children guided the session. We first hung out in the living room where sweet little princess Liv showed me a book that she was really proud of... as well as her favorite dolls and toys. Then we made our way to her room for more toys, tiaras and dolls and wrapped up our time in baby Julian's nursery. I enjoyed every minute with the Franz family.
