Often times when you turn your art or craft into your profession your focus changes. During the beginning phases of learning a craft, you focus on self discovery and experimentation. Over time when your craft turns from hobby to career your focus shifts. Careless playtime goes away and intense perfection and study comes to play. When I was learning photography, I would try the wildest things. Long exposures, odd angles, obscure subjects. However, when I shifted my focus to provide a service for others, my interests changed. I studied how to create a perfectly sharp image with an attractive frame. I wanted every image I took and created with Jada to be perfect for our clients. 

Reflecting on the past few years I quickly saw how easy it was to make a craft one sided. I didn't like this, after all photography was my hobby first. I found that it was so important for me to focus on perfecting my craft, but at the same time I really needed to play and explore. I needed to break the rules of photography a little and just simply have fun.

A few months ago Jada and I decided to have a little fun with watercolors. We would paint on watercolor paper and let it dry. Once it dried, I cut the image down to an 8x10 and I printed some of our favorite images on top. The results, to me, were pretty cool.

Life Update! It has been an amazing 10 years of photographing portraits of all kinds in RVA! It was an amazing chapter in our lives, and we are ready to move on to the next. We will be shifting our business to solely focus on our commercial and editorial photography work, and unfortunately that means we will no longer be accepting bookings for our other photography services. Thank you for being on this journey with us and trusting us to document so many meaningful moments.

I had an absolutely amazing experience working with Jada and David on my Boudoir Shoot. I was nervous at first, having never done anything like this and not knowing what to expect. However, all those nerves dissipated quickly as Jada and David made the environment a comfortable and exciting one. This was something I was doing as a gift to my husban ...”
