Simple elegance... with a little confetti!

Today, I had a lovely young lady in for a birthday session. She didn’t ask for anything special except to include a few friends. Leading up to this session I felt I wanted her to have a special set of her own and was walking through our new Trader Joe’s this week and saw the sweetest little “Party Cake”.  The idea was born in that moment to so simple, elegant, confetti mixed with her only request of rustic and snowy. 

Here is an image of the set and cake inspired by a sweet lady about to turn 25 next Friday!  Happy birthday, Crystal! 


Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Sweet Memories Photography!

What a wonderful year of amazing clients and new friends!  Witnessing beautiful weddings, watching babies grow up and families grow, too, meeting new people starting careers - headshots, modeling portfolios; the list goes on!   Going into 2019 we have so much to be thankful for, and I look forward to launching a new teaching element to Sweet Memories!  Pick up that old (or new) camera and learn what all those button do. This is the year to do it! 
I cannot wait to share in all the memories you make in 2019!

Thank you all for being a part of my business and my life! 

A look back at just some of the amazing people I had the pleasure of meeting and reconnecting with over 2018. Looking forward to more fun in 2019! Music by Young Presidents.

One is a Onederful Number!

This little sweetheart is celebrating her first birthday starting with a cake smash designed with love!  Her mommy and aunt (Country Class Creations) came up with the color scheme and decor ideas and her cake is a simply elegant and delicious design from Katrina at Cake Me With You!  

Happy First Birthday!!!!!  Let them eat cake!!!!

Our First Snow of the Year!

The snow has come and gone - just like a typical Virginia snowfall... but to have one so soon before Christmas is very rare these days!  I happened to be meeting up with these two amazing ladies for a photo shoot this past weekend during the NOVA "snowstorm" and they insisted we run out in the snow for a bit!  So glad they wanted to have some fun!

50 Years of Love - One of a Kind!

As my parents celebrate their 50th anniversary this year, so many plans fell right into place!  Gathering with friends and family this month, I wanted to give them a special photo shoot that captured their true love and friendship.  The candid moments are always my favorite!  And when the warm season hasn't allowed for Autumn to begin... paint a few oranges and reds in there!
