• Real Estate Photography

  • I've been photographing families (and on a smaller scale, weddings) for several years now. I've thoroughly enjoyed it, but over the last few months, I've slowly been shifting my focus away from families and on to real estate photography and architectural photography. With my recent move to the Dalla[...]
  • Thatcher Family Photos

  • Yikes - it's been nearly six months since I last posted! A lot has happened for both my family and Chance Hammock Photography. The biggest news is that we've relocated to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. We arrived shortly before Thanksgiving and have been busy with the holidays and getting settled for t[...]
  • Metcalf Family

  • I recently traveled home to Georgia and planned to spend a day doing mini sessions. The rain got the best of me and I learned an important lesson: be sure and build in a backup day! I was at least able to get in one mini session with the Metcalfs. Megan's a photographer (check out her website!), so [...]
  • Primary Shooting vs. Second Shooting

  • Over four years ago, Kelli asked me to be her second shooter at an upcoming wedding. Shooting weddings had never been a goal of mine. They looked like a lot of fun, but they also looked incredibly stressful (and I already had enough stress in my life!). I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it, but I thought b[...]
  • Independence Day - 2015

  • Today's a day when most Americans grill some good food, hang out with family and friends, and watch fireworks. I'll be doing most of that and I also spent America's birthday enjoying America's pastime. Those are some fun traditions, but it's also good to reflect on the meaning of this holiday. I'[...]

Let me paint take a picture of this very DC wedding for you: The venue: The Whittemore House—home of the National Woman's Democratic Club[...]
  • Kathy & Casey's Wedding Slideshow

  • I've been working on this wedding for a couple of weeks now and I'm so close to finishing the blog post, but I wanted to share a peek at the wedding slideshow I created for them. I don't know what it is, but I love looking at photos with music playing in the background.
  • A Fond Farewell to the H Family

  • This is one of the first families I ever worked with and they've come back to me each year since. I've really enjoyed watching them grow as a family and look forward to seeing them every year. When they emailed me to schedule this year, they let me know it'd be their final session with me - they wer[...]
  • Judd Family Photos

  • I like to think that I'm good with names, but once I realized that the there were 10 Judds, I knew it'd be put to the test. I had to cheat a couple of times and created a few nicknames until I got get them down - most notably, I called the oldest "Cardy" because of her cardigan. Everyone was patient[...]
