what’s been going on

hey guys! i am SO sorry i have neglected my blog lately. i have been SO BUSY with work, photography jobs, and my personal life. i don’t know about y’all, but spring time is always extra busy for me! to make up for my absent-ness, i am going to post a mini-update on what has been going on the past few weeks that i haven’t had time to post about yet.  🙂

i was featured in boomer magazine!!! eeeeeppp!!! it was such an honor and my first job working for a magazine. a photographer for boomer, matt stanton, contacted me and asked me if i would like to shoot the remodeling of the williamsburg pottery. i went down one friday after work and got special access to the different buildings. it looked so awesome! i can’t wait to go visit again and see the final outcome.

other exciting news: i got my business license! it was made official on april 6th, 2012. i can’t wait to see what the future holds for this business and what God has in store. 🙂

i turned 23!!! WOOP WOOP!!! ( i still feel 17, act like i’m 12, and hang out with 3-yr-old kids all day). they have the coolest clothes, too! when i saw this shirt, i went out and bought my own! 🙂

my sweet sweet friends helped my boyfriend plan an amazing surprise for my birthday! i’m hoping to blog about that one later on, too. so, here’s a peak at the surprise (thanks instagram):

i had an engagement shoot this past week, with andy and zuzi. here are some previews:

i also traveled to to chatham, va with my friend (and second shooter), lindsey. we had such a blast and here are some sneaks from blair and adam’s wedding:

i will try to get their full posts up before the weekend *crosses fingers*. i have some fun shoots coming up. another wedding this weekend, a mime photo shoot on saturday, and a fun shoot on sunday that i will reveal later. 😉

coming up in my personal life:

– my little sister, alexi, is on her senior missions trip in the dominican republic. please keep them in your prayers!

-i did karaoke for the first time EVER on my birthday! it was so fun!

– justin is getting baptized in a few weeks! awesome!

-alexi will be graduating on the 1st of june (she’s growing up too fast)!

-amanda will be home in a couple of weeks!

-i will be heading down to alabama in a few weeks, for my best friend’s wedding! congrats anna and adam! 🙂

-work is wonderful, as usual. i seriously don’t know what i would do without those kiddos. they fill my heart everyday. <3

welp, that’s all i can think of right now. again, sorry life has been so hectic. i LOVE it, but i also get sidetracked.

i hope everyone is doing well and that you all had a wonderful weekend! cheers to a new week! 🙂


  • (: This is so wonderful! God is working in your life and I’m so happy you’re happy (and busy). Once again, thank you so much for asking me to help with Blair & Adam’s wedding. I am so blessed to have a wonderful friend like you! I hope you have a wonderful week and I will see you on Sunday!
