Here is the blog so many have been waiting for today. :)

For many that follow my Facebook page know that I am all for women empowerment and helping women feel comfortable in their own bodies and letting them see how amazingly beautiful they are in their own bodies. Don't be ashamed of your curves ladies, learn to own them! I don't discriminate against full figured ladies, I want you to embrace you body, learn you LOVE it!

To answer a few questions in advance:
Do you provide outfits? No, because we are all shapes and sizes and in all reality no woman is going to want to borrow another woman's undies. NOW, I will have a few corsets, and heels ladies are welcome to borrow.
Can I bring props? I sure can, I will bring quite a few, including the Christmas ones. :)
Will we provide fake eye lashes? We sure will.
Will we have refreshments? We sure will :)

Here are some of Katelyn's Christmas boudoir and boudoir samples from this weekend:

 And another gorgeous lady :)

Hurt Wedding 10.20.12 l Amelia, Va Wedding Photographer

It was such a pleasure to catch up with Shannon again and work with her and Travis. Boy did they have quite the wedding planning experience, and not in the best way, but the wedding was PERFECT and they were both STUNNING!! Through every hiccup in their journey, you can see the love between them and their families, and how happy they were with the turn out of their day.

Their engagements were so much fun, and I got to learn the property prior to the wedding date, which is always great for a photographer. A few weeks later we did Shannon's bridal portraits at the same location, and we missed the rain, but overcast is always perfect for portraits. Shortly after her bridals there was a few bad days of storms and quite a few trees had fallen at the wedding site. Now come the wedding day, you couldn't even tell. :)

Weddings must be turning me into quite a sap. I become so attached to all of my wedding couples, I am so excited for them and to be a part of their, I catch myself tearing up, smiling beyond words editing their pictures, and not being able to stop editing because I am so excited for them to see them.

Shannon & Travis I loved capturing your love for one another, and getting to know you both as a couple. I wish you the best of luck and all the love in the world, heaven knows you and your family deserve it. :) I am glad myself or Katelyn didn't get taken out by walnuts during the ceremony, and I want to say a huge thank you for the wedding party for being team players during pictures as well. :)

Before the ceremony, she was in tears, and so was I.

 Isn't she just stunning?!?!

Olive family Gender Annoucement l Richmond, Va Portrait Photographer

This was such a rewarding session. As I have become very close with this family, I just love them all to pieces. I have seen this little family grow from family pictures, to Cassie calling to say they were engaged, setting a date (well a few), bridals, their wedding, to getting the text shortly after the honeymoon to say they were expecting..EEEEKKKK I was SO excited for them, and I was hoping for a little girl. I was beyond honored when Cassie asked me to attend the ultrasound the morning of this session, although I couldn't make it, but I was still there in spirit. I know Koby and Seth are super excited for a little brother, and Matt is SOOO excited of course he just had to show me the wienie picture of the ultrasound. :)

Henshaw Pregnancy Announcement l Louisa, Va Portrait Photographer

 I am SOOOO excited for Shelley and Jonathan for their first baby. They found out the day of their session that is was a little boy. I had to hold this secret in for WEEKS, although it was hard it was well worth the wait. :)
