MISSIONS TRIP TO ROMANIA 2015

MISSIONS TRIP TO ROMANIA 2015

We have recently returned from our annual missions trip to Romania and I miss it already. Romania was my first home, the land I was born and grew up in. Romania is where I met my handsome husband! Going back for 2 weeks every year is a great experience. I get to see my family, friends and do missions work in the villages around Oradea.

This year was different. We had a new member added to our team, read more…

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO US!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO US!

I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since I married my best friend! Three years of sheer happiness, laughter, and joy. Where did time fly? It’s hard to believe that in just 10 days we are celebrating baby K’s first birthday (stay tuned for the blog post following his birthday party). For the past 3 years, I’ve been blessed beyond measure with an amazing husband and father to our almost one year old baby boy. He is the most loving, caring and selfless person I’ve ever met.

We had a beautiful destination wedding in Romania, Europe. For that reason, destination weddings will forever be a big part of my heart! Although our day was nothing short of perfect, I do have one regret: read more…

DESTINATION ENGAGEMENT | SNEAK-PEEK

DESTINATION ENGAGEMENT | SNEAK-PEEK

We had such a great time in Romania last week photographing the engagement of Delia-Dolores and Cipri. I cannot wait to share more about our trip and the wonderful time we had with family and friends. Getting the chance to photograph this destination engagement was one of the the highlights of this trip. read more…

MISSIONS PROJECT

It’s SO good to be back home! We are currently on a missions trip in Romania, and for those of you who don’t know, I was born and raised here. While I lived in the city most of my life, I did not experience village life very often. Of course I had the occasional visits to the countryside to visit my grandparents, but never actually got around those really poor sides of the country. It wasn’t until after I met my in-laws that I got to experience missions work and get more involved in doing ministry in gypsy villages. read more…

365 PHOTO PROJECT | HELLO MARCH!

365 PHOTO PROJECT | HELLO MARCH!

I am completing my second month of the 365 photo project. Where has the time gone? I cannot believe that for over 50 days now, I have been taking a picture a day… and I’ve done it consistently. I gotta tell you, it has not been easy, but consistency is the key.

If  you are thinking about documenting your everyday, starting a read more…

THE TRIVIUM ESTATE IN FOREST, VA | SNEAK PEEK

THE TRIVIUM ESTATE IN FOREST, VA | SNEAK PEEK

I am happy to share one more snow session with you all that took place at the Trivium in Forest, VA. I know, I know… we’ve had a week full of photoshoots in the snow, and we are all probably ready for summer instead of this cold weather, but I had to take advantage of the awesome atmosphere while I could. I couldn’t help but photograph some sweet couples when we got all that pretty snow around Lynchburg. Meagan was one of the first ones to show interest in a snow session and she was so great to work with. She decided to wear this pretty satin dress because, in her own words, she knew that she was going to get cold anyway, so why not look her best? I have to tell you, I’ve never seen a girl as determined as Meagan before. But she had a point, right? I promise I did not keep her out very long, the whole session was probably like 15 minutes. read more…

SIERRA VISTA SNOW SESSION | SNEAK PEEK

SIERRA VISTA SNOW SESSION | SNEAK PEEK

I am so excited to share this session with you all! We’ve had quite a few snow days in the Lynchburg area this week and I knew that I had to take advantage of this amazing opportunity and photograph a lovely couple at Sierra Vista. Just like with our last snow session at Sierra Vista, this wasn’t a planned session. I had talked to Chelsey a few days before it started snowing about possibly doing a photoshoot in the snow. read more…

THE TRIVIUM, FOREST VA: ASHLEY+MIKE

THE TRIVIUM, FOREST VA: ASHLEY+MIKE

We don’t usually get a lot of snow around the Lynchburg – Forest area, but when we do, it’s amazing! I mean, you’ve got to get out of the house and take some pictures.

When I saw that it had started snowing, I immediately called my husband and told him that I would love to do some snow photoshoots. The Trivium in Forest, VA was kind enough to let me use their wedding venue as my photography background. I quickly posted a Facebook status asking if there were any couples willing to brave the cold snow and let me photograph them. read more…

SIERRA VISTA SNOW PHOTOS | SNEAK PEEK

SIERRA VISTA SNOW PHOTOS | SNEAK PEEK

We did a last minute snow session at Sierra Vista last evening and I am so happy that we braved the cold weather to get some killer shots. The scenery at Sierra Vista is just out of this world… breathtaking! I have an ah-hah moment every time I go up there. I am so thankful to my sweet couple, Emily and Ian, for coming out to model for me. We don’t get snow very often here in Virginia, but when we do, it’s pure gold.  read more…

VALENTINE’S DAY WITH THE THOMAS’ | PERSONAL

VALENTINE’S DAY WITH THE THOMAS’ | PERSONAL

Happy (Almost) Valentine’s Day, friends! At the Thomas’ house, we celebrate Valentine’s Day all throughout the year. We don’t usually make any kind of sophisticated plans for February 14th, but we do like to celebrate the holiday in our own way. For the past 3 years, we’ve enjoyed a nice, romantic, candle light dinner at home (hubby is usually the chef on such special occasion), while trying to avoid the restaurant crowds in the city. We like it this way and wouldn’t change it for anything!

This year is different though, it is the first year that we celebrate Valentine’s Day as a family of 3! Our precious K, who is 10 months now,  is such a blessing to our family and we can’t wait to see how this year will play out. While trying to come up with cute Valentine’s Day ideas, we decided to do a fun photo session of K and mommy, to celebrate his first Valentine’s Day. After all, I am the one who loved him first! Enjoy his first Valentine’s Day pictures!
