Jonathon & Cassie⎜The Gardens at Waterperry Farm ⎜Charlottesville Wedding Photographer

I’m just going to go ahead and warn you that your computer or phone is going to give you the circle of doom loading! I way over blogged these photos, but I couldn’t not. Jonathon and Cassie are incredible and The Gardens at Waterperry Farm were such a delight… it all led to the most magical combination of hundreds of edits of the most gorgeous couple and gardens. I loved getting to get to know Jonathon and Cassie better and hear their love story! They were such a delight and it was just such a wonderful time getting to explore the gardens with them. It was great for them to slow down from work and before Jonathan begins classes to get to reminisce on how met, their dating, and sweet beach proposal! Enjoy my favorites of this stunning couple…

Jackson⎜Virginia Family Photographer

Baby Jackson is ONE! Oh my goodness this year flew for Josh and Jessica! Welcoming your first baby is such an amazing and crazy change– then it’s shocking when you’re planning that first birthday wondering where did your baby go?!!? Not to mention an entire year! Little Jackson is expressive, sweet, and busy. He absolutely loved his cake as you’ll see, but is most sweet for Mama and Dada!

Fixer Upper Inspired Family Board⎜Virginia Photographer

You’ll have to forgive the photo quality!! These are some iPhone shots of the “board” I made in our kitchen. Durham Family 121_WEB

For this project, I got a lot of the materials from Lowes. The dowel rod and coat hooks you can really pick almost anything or even paint the dowel rod. When hanging the hooks, I suggest getting as tight to the roll of paper as you can so that it doesn’t have much movement which could lead to it coming off the dowel rod and crashing down. To help prevent this, using a dowel rod larger than the paper roll length is also helpful. I used paper drop cloth which I found in the paint aisle. I love how affordable it is. I use chalk typically to decorate it and it doesn’t always work great. Sharpie does great– that being said I’m still nervous about it bleeding through (unlikely since the paper is thick). Then I’m such a sucker for any plants, especially these air plants from Air Plant Supply Co. I love them and the way they look. I’ve had a batch of about 20 plants since November and only lost 3 plants and one was to a toddler. You soak them once a week in water and otherwise they’re just out and about looking chic.


Just in case you were curious about the air plants– these are mine dying out after a soak.
