Winchester VA Photographer | Lilly, "the looking glass"

Last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a dear old friend of mine. Lilly and I were best friends in middle school and we haven't seen each other in eight years! A lot can change in eight years and while our lives are different now, catching up and laughing about the past felt the same. The most beautiful thing about this experience is that now we've reconnected as friends and will definitely see each other more in the future. That's another thing about my book that I love. It has given me the opportunity to sit down with old friends, catch up, and reconnect - but also seeing how beautiful my friend's are.

While I knew Lilly when we were preteens, I got to meet a version of Lilly that I've never known - a wife and a mother. She's still the same person, but now her life revolves around the people that are so near and dear to her. I met her precious daughter, Vivian, and I can see why! The love between them was a sight to see and I'm so proud of my friend. As always, I can't wait for you to hear her story in my book that will be available in two weeks! <3  

Being a mother is the best thing that ever happened to me. I love being someone’s everything.

Winchester VA Photographer | Sarah | "the looking glass"

Sarah has a beautiful soul. Primarily, I have known her as an artist over the years. She's the first person that I've met that loves fashion photography as much as I do, but also hates the industry. We both agree that the beauty in women should not be altered or modified to meet societies standards. A few years ago, I had the honor to be a part of her senior gallery exhibit focusing on said views. A few years later, I've asked her to be a part of mine and to be a part of something that focuses on how beautiful and inspiring woman can be - not who society wants them to be. 

I was so ecstatic when she agreed to be a part of my project! She's so passionate about art and how it matters in the world. I always looked up to her when we were in school together. She was a role model to me through academia and as a person. I can't wait for you to hear her story, amongst the others. <3

and thank you Shelby for being an extremely photogenic pup. <3

Gretchen is a very caring person, a loyal friend, future wife, and fashionista. Talking to her was so much fun and such a fascinating experience. A lot of the women I have interviewed thus far have had one or two people in their life that have inspired them, but Gretchen finds everyone in her life to be an inspiration to her! The people that have supported her, helped her, have been there for her over the years have made her more open-minded in life, especially her fiance, Ryan.

This past year has not been easy on her, but what I saw before me was a woman that held her head high with her feet on the ground. Her late mother's words have pushed her through these past several months --her mother admired her bravery and how strong of a person she is. Being someone that has also lost their mother at a young age, I truly admire Gretchen's bravery and can easily see her mother's words carry on with her. She's a beautiful, inspiring, and strong woman. I'm so proud of her and so honored that she was willing to be a part of my book.
