Motherhood has made me a stronger and more confident woman. My girls have taught me so much about loving myself. My name is Tracy, I’m married to my husband Will and we have two beautiful daughters, Bella and Addy. We live in a small town, in the country where we both grew up. We have a little farm with dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits and goats. Our family loves being outdoors and doing lots of outdoor activities.
Most of our family traditions are around the holidays. We always attend the Christmas Eve service at the church my husband and I went to as children. On Christmas morning we open presents at home and then go to my parents for breakfast and presents and then on to my grandmas for lunch and my husbands parents for dinner.
Our favorite family vacation is going to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We love the beach and spending time with our family and friends.
My advice to new moms is to live in the present and spend as much time loving your children as possible. They grow up so fast.
My go to beauty products are my concealer, eyeshadow, mascara and my hair straightener.
Our photographer is more than just a photographer to us, she’s a family friend. I grew up with Crystal, we went to the same schools, elementary all the way to high school. She has been taking our pictures for the last two years and we absolutely love her work. Our girls just love her and so do we. I couldn’t be more proud of her, she is so sweet and has accomplished so much as a photographer.
My name is Crystal and I am born and raised in the heart of Virginia. A proud hokie. Pug lover. And I thoroughly enjoy loving life and capturing moments in time. I am a self taught photographer, and open to traveling the world to capture love.
A couple years ago I hit a dark time in my life, my clients and photography got me back to being me. Capturing love and life helped me to realize that love was still out there in the world. Telling a love story in images is my passion. Since then I have rarely been without a smile on my face and a camera in my hand. I love documenting life, and have taken that from not only capturing my clients, but my own. And I strongly believe that the only picture you regret taking, is the one you didn’t take.
