The Ballantines | Manassas, Virginia Family Portrait Photographer

You might recognize this beautiful couple from their maternity session earlier this year! :) Not only are they super photogenic, but they are as sweet as can be!!! It’s funny because, on the way to the session, I thought to myself, “Oh, I cannot wait to photograph Joanna Gaines’ twin!!” ;) Haha! I adore this…

Taylor & Katherine | Richmond, Virginia Engagement Photographer

I’ve been busy traveling all over Virginia lately, photographing fall engagements!
