This space is yours. I prepared it just for you. I hung my heart in frames on these white walls hoping you would linger long enough to experience this simple truth:

I love you.

Stay awhile, if you'd like—kick off your shoes. It's a grand estate, but comfortable too. You'll find peace down the hall, a library of love beneath the stairs, whole dream worlds exist within every breath in of fresh air. 

When you've explored for awhile—feel settled


and inspired, I'll be resting on the back porch, waiting for you to inquire. There's a seat just for you, a glass of tea to get us started. I can't wait to hear your story, to listen, to help you write it.

One day, when you're married, you'll leave this space—yet your story will stay and I'll grow quite fond of visiting it—in the library beneath the stairs, where dream worlds appear and I'll never forget your name, the way you made your mark here.

I found myself lost in a dream world as I wondered down many of the quiet hallways searching for the next secret spot. I could imagine a wedding day created a thousand different ways, and captured from endless angles. The beauty of this vast venue is the potential for your story to be told in a way only you two and your guests will experience, never to be recreated quite the same again.

Nothing seemed to want to go according to plan when it came to Roger and Nicolette’s engagement session. With the hectic swirl brought on by the virus and rainy weather to squash our dreams of exploring a creekbed, I was certain there was still a beautiful story waiting to unfold before us. Nicolette and Roger […]

I’m almost certain the heavens aligned for a fraction of the day on 02.22.2020 as Carolyn, Colbie and I drifted through an ethereal dream. I’ve never experienced such an anointing on a session before. Maybe it was the sweet words they exchanged throughout the session which spurred on the romance. Maybe it was the whimsy […]

Looking through the history of art and design, it seems as though each movement embodied a striving to understand life and the purpose of being human, rather than operating in the power of being a human and the divine gift of creativity God has given us. We’re inspired by legends like Duchamp and Picasso, but […]

Everything comes back to the ethereal world I see in my mind. I believe my purpose is to construct the world discovered within me through imagery and words. It is not enough to simply dream. I desire to see with my own eyes what has been so clearly shown to me in my spirit. I […]

I have a little hometown girl pride in this sweet little venue, Firefly Gardens. I grew up in Midlothian and my childhood home is actually only 10 minutes from this beautiful venue! It’s kind of hard to believe a town with pastures full of cows and horses and a fairly large, and maybe not so […]

As a photographer, you’re responsible for so many things that make up an image. The composition, the lighting, the color balance, focus, non-distracting background, clean foreground, is the subject posed in a flattering way, how is their expression, is the angle going to distort them in some way, are they comfortable in front of the […]
