While living out here in Germany near Ramstein AFB, the current restrictions are so hard as a portrait photographer. Especially when your top love language is physical touch. I love being around people and socializing.
What I am very thankful for is technology. I have been talking to many of my clients, friends, and family through all of this and it is making it feel a lot less lonely. A couple weeks ago I saw Anna and Josh at the commissary on base, Anna and I instinctively went in for a hug but then realized we can’t…. It was such a bummer… Anna, you are the first person I want to see after this is over. We need to get that hug back lol
Before everything went on lockdown, Josh and Anna came up to our house (we are about 30 minutes form Ramstein) for a couples session to embrace the spring blooms and fields! And let me tell you, it was so much fun! It was chilly and windy but they hung in there and we got some AMAZING shots!
I posted an unbelievable before and after shot on Instagram that you HAVE to see! Did you know that I am offering One-for-One Gratitude Sessions for essential frontline workers?! Make sure to check out the blog post for all of the information!

I remember how terribly inconsistent I was with poses during an engagement session back when I started photography and my oh my.. Do you remember Anna? Back in July of 2016 I was invited to a styled shoot by a friend 30 minutes before it started. I ended up getting stuck in traffic on […]
One thing I have learned from this quarantine (as a family photographer) is that there is always more work that can be done to work on your craft. Even if that does not include shooting. I am going back through older sessions and came across this session with my best friend Natalie of Natalie Grace […]
If you are stationed in Germany, you have most likely been to Burg Lichtenberg at least a handful of times. This is one of my favorite castles to go to for family sessions. The kids love to run around and play and the adults can really take in the scenery around Burg Lichtenberg. Going to this […]
What is the first thing an engagement photographer thinks of when a client says they want to do their photos in Washington DC? Sunrise. Daily I go back and forth between whether or not I like sunrise or sunset better. I have to say though after Julie + Jordan’s engagement session, I prefer the lighting […]
