I am a wife and mom to five kids and two pups: Garrett 23, Mitchell 21, Gabe 18, Nate 15, Maggie 12, Birdie our Goldendoodle and Coco our Labradoodle. With this crew at home, there’s nothing your family can throw at me that I haven’t already seen myself!

I live in the small town of Louisa, Virginia, which is different for this city girl, but I love it.

I love the slow pace and just walking up to shops or to a family restaurant in our quaint, small downtown area.

I’ve been a professional photographer for 10 years. My photography is a way to express myself, but more importantly to tell a story. My goal in every family session is to help you tell your story.

I love coffee, reading, walking and wine. My childhood nickname was Grace, as I was (and still am) a little clumsy!



I am a wife and mom to two kids, one pup and a revolving door of foster pups. Jack 10 and Brooke 7 are listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the most uncooperative kids to photograph on Earth.

I love to start my day with a cup (or three) of coffee and I take my energy and enthusiasm and slay each and every single day. My perfect day would end around our fire pit with friends and a cold cider beer.

I’ve been a professional photographer for 7 years. My photography captures the best little features of babies before they grow up. I strive to provide an excellent customer experience from start to finish.

I love true crime and organizing closets. You’ll have to ask my dad why my childhood nickname was Boomer, I genuinely don’t know.

I am a wife and mom to two beautiful kids, one girl and one boy.  Elliana 6 and Dixon 3 have been photographed by 11 Sixteen Photography all their lives and those photographs adorn our home in the Wyndham area. 

I grew up in Lynchburg, VA but have now lived in Richmond for 15 years. I love the faster pace, the booming small business industry, and of course, the food scene. 

I spent the first 12 years of my life here in Richmond in the corporate world, as a Project Manager putting my engineering degree to use, before quitting that life 3 1/2 years ago to stay home with my babies. I was looking for balance and a creative outlet when the opportunity to work as a studio manager for 11 Sixteen Photography came along. 

I love traveling, reading and gardening and I’m learning to paint in watercolor. I can solve a rubix cube and sort-of juggle. I have never once met another person that shares my name.
