Melton Hill Maternity In the days leading up to Kayla and Micah’s Melton Hill maternity session, I watched the weather intensely. It kept changing from rain to not rain back to rain and back to no rain again. I messaged her making sure we were on the same page, and finally, Sunday morning, we decided […]

Lilly is 2 Years Old Right when the US went on lockdown and the social distancing rule was implemented, Jennifer reached out to me to photograph her granddaughter’s 2 year old pictures. This was literally the day after the stock market crashed, and I was basically in the mindset that I wasn’t going to be […]

Where is the positive in this craziness?? Last night, I got a text from one of my sweet videographer friends thanking me for these COVID-19 posts to give her something to look forward to reading online at the end of the day. I was so humbly thankful that she said this to me because sometimes, […]

The Fothergill family is not one I’d consider being homebodies. We thoroughly enjoy getting out and about, and when we are inside too long we go stir crazy. Believe me, I know you’ve gotten a ton of these emails, but maybe, possibly, I might offer one tidbit of an idea that might be a little […]

COVID-19 Recipes while you’re stuck at home I am so not a cook. I have never claimed to be and quite frankly I don’t enjoy it very much. Couple that feeling with not having a 100% functioning kitchen since we moved in in early February and we were eating out a lot. I don’t particularly […]

Ramble Creek Vineyard I have to share with you guys this really cool thing that God is doing in Amanda May Photos. In the past when I have needed my schedule to be clear for something enormous that I wouldn’t have exact control over when it would happen… a.k.a. having my babies… He has cleared […]

Another reason why we love Shoreline. This is the Hayes family. We met at Concord Park to take some family photos before the boys had baseball games one evening. Jason is the head pastor at the church Dustin and I attend (Shoreline Church), and we adore this family so much. You’ve seen them before on […]

Relix Variety Theatre Wedding Alright, it’s hard not to address the elephant in the room. COVID-19. So, let’s just get that out of our system real fast. Please, wash your hands, stay home if you’re sick, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and get tested if you need to get tested. I’m not […]

Spring Wedding at Castleton Okay… so when I say spring wedding at Castleton Farms, I really mean spring-ish. One of the things that I love most about Castleton is that they have very few landscaping designs that look dead in the winter. This wedding was this past weekend, March 7th. I would not necessarily consider […]

Castleton Farms Wedding Caity and Kaleb’s Castleton Farms wedding was my first back for the season. Every year for the past 6 or 7 years, I’ve had a January wedding. This year I didn’t, and I just know in my bones it’s because God knew I needed a long break for our move. Not to […]
