Remember your “right now” used to be a “not yet” and you were once really anxious for it to get here.

Too Many Things

Sometimes I feel like there are too many things to talk about and I get overwhelmed, so then I end up just not talking about anything at all. 

Surround yourself with good words. Because they affect you more than you think.

Sometimes I don’t really have captions for photos or words to adequately express my current state or how I’m feeling but I will say that I love this city dearly and it has my whole heart. #RVA

Spent the afternoon shooting photos for this talented lady’s EP coming out soon! I could just listen to her sing for ages and ages. ❤️ Check her out! @brandiemunizmusic

Pillow Talk

(I made a lot of pillows today)


I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely lady behind A Girl Named Leney last week. Leney Breeden is a photographer, maker, blogger, and all around inspiring female entrepreneur.

Check out her gorgeous handmade knit wares in her web shop and then head over and read her beautiful blog

Loved meeting Christie, the lovely lady behind Richmond Thread Lab recently. 
Yay for new friends.

//don’t let the process drain you.
don’t let rules or money or the will of others push you so far down that you forget what you are here for.
remember why you started.
what you started all those years ago.
you love what you love for a reason - because it drives you, it makes you feel alive and that spirit is contagious, it’s electrifying. it’s the realest thing there is and the closest you’re ever going to get to channeling angels or capturing the essence of a universe beyond.
it’s lightening, it’s fire, it’s passion and truth. now go out and sing it from the rooftops my friend, my brother, my sister, my child - light the sky with your words.
so loud and powerful that every last everyone joins hands and weeps tears of joy right along with you.//

Loved wandering around my lovely city and taking pictures of this babely couple this evening. Can’t wait to shoot their wedding this fall! #dowhatyoulovelovewhatyoudo | #rva | #richmondweddings | #agirlnamedleney | #weddingphotographerdiaries

Hey friends! I’m trying out a new platform for the shop, and so in honor of that, and testing new things out, I’m offering 15% off all orders from now until midnight tonight! Just use the code WEEKENDSALE2014 at checkout. 

#regram from @alwaysabell from yesterday’s shoot with @blackbirdtees! Had so much fun modeling their new designs for their shop. Keep an eye out for them soon! I already want one of everything.
