Good Karma Tea Product Shoot 0170 copy

#SipGoodKarma

This month I had the privilege of photographing for Good Karma Tea Co! Cameo and Lyndsey are tea blending masters who specialize in  creating tea blends from scratch. Their warm and flavorful teas match the personalities of the owners.

They are currently engaged in a kickstarter program to raise $16,000 in 16 days! They have outgrown their current location in the Riverviews Art Complex and their new space they are going into is located on 9th St.

As a person who typically purchases tea bags from the grocery store, watching Cameo blend tea was educational and exciting. Colors and aroma of the teas that Good Karma creates brings customers into their shop loyally and I’m excited to see them grow.

Good Karma Tea Company hand blends small batch full leaf artisan teas and tisanes. Their distinct blends are attentively chosen from fine organic ingredients and for their unique flavor profiles. These handcrafted teas are often created from local inspiration and palate exploration, delicately combining the ritual of tea with discovery and intrigue.

Enjoy the Photos

The Meadows-Jaeger Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely couple’s wedding during an unseasonably warm day in November. This family is beautiful and I couldn’t be happier for the Chris and Stephanie! It was a dream photographing this special day with people so beautiful (inside and out) I would think they were all models!

Design House 2015

Over the weekend I had the honor of photographing the Design House 2015 Gala. The home located on 3128 Rivermont Avenue has been transformed by a group of talented interior designers to benefit the YWCA. The Gala that was held on Friday the 20th was the celebration that officially opened the house to the public.

Enjoy the Photos!

 

“All the proceeds from this event  directly support the YWCA programs and community. In 2014 alone, the Domestic Violence Prevention Center served over 15,000 people through two shelters (one in Lynchburg and one in Altavista), the hotline, court advocacy, support groups for women and children, emergency transportation, community education and the Children’s Visitation Center.”

For more information you can check out the official Design House Website, the article in Central Virginia HOME Magazine, the News & Advance, and WSET

Hoping your holiday is festive and full of love!

The lighting could not have been more perfect at the Old City Cemetery located in Downtown Lynchburg.

Hopefully you will get to be with your loved ones during this Thanksgiving Holiday. This is the time for family friends and food! There are so many things to be thankful for this year.

Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice!

The recipe that good little girls are made of : sugar, spice and everything nice rings true for this little girl. In this next series of images you will see this little girl’s personality shine through. I’m thinking that she has just a dash a spunk added with the spice.

Enjoy!willow1 willow2photos of willow for sarah crist

Welcome home, Keziah!

Happy Wednesday  everyone!

Words cannot describe how grateful I am to be a mother. After going through a really tough 2013, being told that I may never have children among other serious challenges, I can say that I am a proud mommy in 2015 and my health is doing great! What an awesome God we serve! What an amazing time to live in with so much technology and medical breakthroughs.

Today’s blog post features a subject near and dear to my heart. After five weeks of being in the Neonatal intensive care unit we were finally able to bring our daughter Keziah home. What a blessing she is! I had been wanting to take great photos of her for such a long time but I wanted to wait for her to be out of the hospital and unplugged from all the monitors. The staff at UVA were amazing. Each nurse and doctor that cared for her were attentive, warm, and compassionate. It was quite a journey getting her home but she made it by the grace of God. Thank you to all of our friends and family who have been so supportive of my husband and I throughout the pregnancy and arrival of our daughter. We definitely couldn’t have accomplished much without your prayers, love and support.

Please enjoy the photos and feel free to leave a message. I promise to read them to her once she awakes from her nap.

Paris summer night

Hello All!
I came across this fellow bloggers post and thought the photos were wonderful and captured with sensitivity and beauty everyday life in Paris. Enjoy!

Hadorable

Paris summer night is when the sun still shines and covers every corners of the city with its honey light, when everyone heads outdoors to celebrate the long days by many different ways.

You love the crowd and friends gathering? Canal St.Martin is a popular place to be! Bring along some snacks, cool drinks and gather by the bank, have dinner in trendy restaurants and bars or simply take a stroll through art streets and see cool people pass by with a twist…

Or you prefer a place to relax and recharge batteries after a long busy day,  the Ile St.Louis offers a peaceful timeless atmosphere with great street music performances, best artisanal ice-cream and amazing view down to Seine river…

This is how I ended up my summer night….

Paris je t’aime
