2020 Year in Review

Phew. I think that pretty much sums this year up. I find it a tad ironic, too, that the Pantone color of the year for 2020 was Classic Blue. As in, singing the blues, feeling blue…you get the point. Though this year definitely left us all a bit ‘black

2019 Review

I’ll Spare You The “Time Flies” Speech Needless to say, we all feel like we blink and POOF! Another year’s gone. The only way I’ve found to really stop and appreciate time is to hash out the year and let it marinate. A LOT goes down in 365 days!

Do You Know Your Style?

Riddle Me This: What draws you in more: a bright, colorful image, or a dark and moody photo? Popular trends right now include the “light and airy” look where the sky is predominantly white and all colors are pastel, or the dark and grainy film look. Maybe you’re somewhere in between?

Middleburg Barn Session | Maggie & Stewie

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Middleburg, up a long dirt road, lies a gorgeous plot of land with two stables and a beautiful two-story home modeled after the French countryside. It’s a “word of mouth only” kind of place, where you have to know

Can’t Beat Candid

Today’s feeds are filled with so many perfectly posed and filtered images that it truly shocks us when we see something candid. For ages we’ve been told to look at the camera, say “cheese” and be happy with the results–or be upset when not everyone is looking. And nine
