Top Three Harpers Ferry National Park Hikes (from a local)
My husband and I moved to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia a couple of years. Since then, I have hiked every trail multiple times and different variations. Living near a national park has been so amazing.
Below are my favorite hikes. They aren’t really in any particular order since each trail is so different. Each trail has it’s own benefits and why you are heading out that day can really depend on which one you take.
Without further ado, let’s kick off my top three hikes in Harpers Ferry National Park.Continue reading “Top Three Harpers Ferry National Park Hikes (from a local)”
Cordell Crew: Harpers Ferry, West Virginia Family Session
“That was the quickest forty-five minutes of my life,” was what I told Lindsay at the end of their family session. In that short period of time we experience all emotions. Laughter with Daddy while the kids tickled him, tears when someones Lego creation broke, and hunger as we consumed Vanilla Wafers on the ride back to their house.
We took their photos on a crisp and beautiful fall evening in Harpers Ferry, and it was the most fun I’ve had in a long time! Continue reading “Cordell Crew: Harpers Ferry, West Virginia Family Session”
Iron Musket CrossFit: Kearneysville, West Virginia, Family Session
I went to Iron Musket CrossFit until I was about seven months pregnant. The people there were always welcoming, and the workouts always kicked my ass. If you’re looking for an affordable and fun crossfit gym, Iron Musket is the place! I was pretty excited to go back for a day and catch the kids in action.
Now, I just need to get my butt back into working out.

Mary + Sophie: Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, Pet Session
Mary and I met through Instagram because we share a love of two things: hiking and dogs.
Early one spring morning, I met the pair for some photos in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. We talked as Sophie had free reign of the trails since no one else was around.

Everyday Makers: Anne Rule-Thompson, Ceramicist
“This is your ten-minute warning,” Anne shouts from downstairs at her two boys.
As the boys race from bedroom to bathroom to get ready for school, Anne and her husband make breakfast, feed the dog, and get the boys out the door.
The school-day scramble is in full swing and is the storm before the calm of Anne’s quiet downtown Bolivar, W.V., ceramics studio.
“There was a long time when the kids were little when I didn’t really have a place, and it was a struggle,” Anne said. “I guess that’s why I am here.”

Beyond the “About Me” Page: Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, Photographer
Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down. Just kidding, but if you want a good laugh this comic still makes me giggle over a decade later. It was created in 2004. Which, happens to be the first time I picked up a camera with the purpose of storytelling.
Storytelling has been ingrained in my photography since the beginning because when I first started it was tied to journalism. Finding photos that could stand on their own, in a series, or expand on the story was a hunt I enjoyed. Everything I loved about journalism: interviewing, getting to know people, finding out their personal story and why a subject matter means so much to them is what I’ll bring to the table when I photograph you.
