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!



Fall Engagement

This next set of photographs were taken of an adorable couple: Brittany and David! They’re photos reflect their sweet nature and the love they have for one another. The lighting could not have been more perfect at the Old City Cemetery located in Downtown Lynchburg. Thanks so much Brittany and David for allowing me to capture the love you have toward one another.

Enjoy the photos


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.

Until next time,

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.


Isn’t she adorable?!?!? !But,  I could be biased…

Many Blessings,

Paris summer night

Michelline N. Hall | Seven20 Photography:

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!

Originally posted on 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

Estate Jewelry at Bowen

This blog post officially ends my blog hiatus and features beautiful Estate jewelry from Bowen Jewelry Company located on Main Street in Lynchburg VA. Bowen hosts an estate show every year in the fall and features many beautiful, one of a kind pieces from a range of time periods.

The thing I love about estate jewelry is that each of the items are like a person. They have a history and unique characteristics that give them personality. Some jewels have belonged to famous people, other gems have been cut and forged by legendary jewelry makers. Most of them are older than the people who will get to own them next. All of them are stunning.
These next images are a sample of jewels that will be featured this fall.estate2015mh-060estate2015mh-069

The Links Luncheon

The Links, Incorporated founded in 1946, is one of the oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry. The outstanding programming of The Links, Incorporated has five facets which include National Trends and Services, The Arts, Services to Youth, International Trends and Services and Health and Human Services.

These photos are from an induction ceremony and business luncheon of the local Lynchburg VA chapter of The Links.



























I was  blessed as a young lady to participate in STEP with Links when I attended Linkhorne Middle School. I vividly remember taking field trips to state colleges,  receiving tutoring on homework, learning how the stock market worked by using a game we would participate in week to week for our mock companies, and so much more. I personally can attest to the great work these women do in the community by exposing youth to cultural and educational opportunities that they may have never  been exposed to without the dedication of the Links.

Have a wonderful Day!
