Winchester Wonderful | Sunrise Portraits

Columbia photographer | Lorin Marie Photography

My dear friend - and future LMP bride! - Priscilla joined me at sunrise in a sprawling field near her hometown in Winchester, Virginia. Although it was seriously cold, and I was suffering from not-at-all-fun morning sickness, at the time, she was such a gem and hid her shivers and modeled so beautifully in her soft, flowing blue gown.

The inspiration for the shoot was elegance, whimsy and beautiful light. A girl and her books, twirling in a field without a care in the world. As the great C.S. Lewis said, “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

prepared to wait trustfully & quietly on Him
who has all things safely in His hands."

Happy Labor Day weekend, y'all :)

Sara + Dan: sneak peek

This Saturday morning, I met up with Sara + Dan, one of the sweetest couples you'll ever met. We spent a chilly (and windy!) morning down by the Georgetown waterfront and walking through campus, capturing the essence of where they first met serving through our church's college ministry, The Gathering.

hey truly have hearts beating for the Lord and His work, and love one another through that overflow of Christ's love. I'm so stinkin' excited for their upcoming wedding this fall and am blessed each time I'm in their presence.

Aren't those flowers great? Dan picked them out for our early morning shoot. njoy the sneak peek. There will be more images to come!

sunrise cherry blossom session

When it comes to checking out the beautiful pink blooms that DC's tidal basin shows off each spring, there's no messing around. We photographers are caffeinated, packed up and ready to capture the cherry blossoms even before the first rays of dawn come sneaking above the Potomac.

The fantastic Sam Reho and I got to shoot together (April Goal - checked off!) the day before she and other runners laced up for the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler. So proud of her race running and loved the chance to enjoy the beauty of God's creation with such a sweet friend and wonderful sister in Christ.
