I had the great pleasure of documenting Erin and Bobby’s wedding just a few years ago and I was thrilled to hear about the next big adventure they have embarked on. This beautiful couple is expecting a baby girl, who is set to arrive this June and has so much love and cuteness awaiting her that I bet she can hardly wait! We lucked out with blue skies and spring temperatures as we played in Richmond’s own Maymont Park and then made our way to Carytown. Many many girly points to Erin for doing the entire session in heels…my hero. Following are my favorites from the day: enjoy!

This Photo Lady loves to KISS!

After much, much searching for the perfect wedding book company, I recently discovered KISS Wedding Books. I mean, how perfect of a match is that? Photoladylove meets KISS and it is love at first sight! Funky colors, beautiful leather, archival photo paper and maximum design potential with seamless layflat binding…I’m smitten. It really was love at first sight and I’m super excited to show off a few brand spanking new sample books I had made. Enjoy!


Dining Out: Hermitage Grill

It has been a long time since I had a dessert that was truly to die for. However, after shooting this week’s restaurant review for Hermitage Grill in Richmond’s Lakeside neighborhood, I tried chef Nancy Smith’s chocolate kahlua creme brulee. I literally could not stop putting spoon after spoon of it into my mouth, and the only reason I did leave some behind was because I didn’t want to be known as the photo lady who licked the dessert plate clean and left with chocolate on her face…This everybody-knows-your-name kind of restaurant is definitely a place I would go back to. I loved all the bright colors, the friendly staff and everything I photographed made me hungry. Following are photos of a few dishes: fried green tomatoes with cumin shrimp, corn and black bean salsa; salmon jalapeno croquettes with cajun tartar; and shrimp and grits with andouille sausage.
