This year, when we were planning their session, she told me she wanted […]

So many times, my favorite engagement sessions are with people who have never had professional pictures taken before! They’re usually nervous, they feel a little (or a lot) awkward, and they’re worried about how they look. Dude, join the club! That’s my everyday life! That’s why I like to start off all my sessions with […]

Who here has been unaffected by COVID-19? ✋ (What’s the opposite of a hand-raising emoji?) At this point, I’d bet that the only people COVID hasn’t hit are the scientists in Antarctica, and mayyyyybe some outlying villages in Siberia. It’s been a rough year, y’all. No news to any of you!
