Zoë & Dom

Client Spotlight

Zoë had a special idea in mind for her second anniversary. She wanted to plan a special session in a Sunflower field. I was excited because I had not done a field session before! Usually, I work in parks with trees and hills. Sunflower season is typically in the summer so I was bummed out at first because a lot of farms were closing. I was so excited to find Magnolia Meadows Farms in Thurmont, Maryland. I headed out and was hyped at first because it had been a stormy week but this day was sunny and beautiful. It was the most refreshing drive for me. I was drinking in the mountains, the leaves, and the countryside.


Zoë and Dom were such a sweet couple they were willing to walk through the wet grass and bugs to make some great photos! We got the field to ourselves for two hours. This session was beautiful, vibrant and colorful, and worth the drive! I loved the humor that these two had. They were laid back and adventurous walking through the sunflowers, and wildflowers and climbing on tractors. We finished our session in the sunset with some poses against a wood fence. If you have a dream for a session please don’t feel limited by location or what you think is possible! Let me know so I can collaborate to make your vision a reality! Thanks, Zoë and Dom you were amazing and I hope you love your images!



Fall/ Holiday Sessions are still available. Please contact me today to get your session booked!

Finding the Joy

Welcome to my blog. I talk about choosing joy, to me, that means believing God is good and there is hope in the face of difficulty. I also talk about my goals and challenges. I believe in perseverance, grit, dreaming big, and choosing to challenge yourself to be better than yesterday.

What does it mean to be a part of the #JoyJourney?

It means to choose JOY in the good and bad!
It means we focus on our goals!
It means we challenge ourselves to do better!
