Anne + Jacob | Mini Session | Chesapeake Photographer

I think it is SO cool that Anne & Jacob were married the week BEFORE these portraits!!!!!!! What a cool concept, post wedding engagements (in a sense) when everything is new and fresh 🙂 I always work with couples in LOVE but they were so on cloud nine after getting married that I felt giddy…

Wendy + Trevor | Mini Session | Chesapeake Photographer

I loveeeeeeeeeeeee when married couples book sessions! You don’t have to only have your life documented on your wedding day and then wait until you have kids if you have kids– you should celebrate your love and treat yourselves! That’s what Wendy & Trevor did, and I’m so glad! We had a blast, and then…

Makenzie + Holly | Virginia Beach Portrait Photographer

Holly’s beautiful self came to me when Makenzie was in her belly and we took beautiful maternity shots of her at the ocean front…I was pregnant, too! I remember people walking by and saying things to us trying to be nice, but she and I were in our own little world talking about pregnancy and…

Lillard Family | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

The last time I saw little Louis, he was brand new to this world. Now, he’s smiling ear to ear, playing peek-a-boo holding his OWN blanket up in the air and he’s busy being the cutest thing in the entire world! I recently had someone ask me if Isabel was a model when they saw…

Mallory, Alex + Wheeler | Norfolk Portrait Photographer

I love all my shoots, don’t…

Nick, Amanda & Sophia | Richmond Family Photographer

Well this is one of those right off the bat sessions where I know it’s going to be incredible. All I did is say two words to Sophia and she was LIGHTING UP, bingo! Happy baby, easy work! I don’t shoot a lot of family sessions nowadays so it’s nice when I do to have…

Stephanie, Brent & Dawson | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

So I feel like I JUST saw them not too long ago, and that’s because I was shooting this awesome couple’s wedding back in February! I will never forget Stephanie coming to my house to talk wedding when Cammy was just born- I looked horrible and felt wild and she didn’t judge. MY KINDA GIRL!…

Vasu, Chris, Sebastian + Sinjin | Yorktown Family Photographer

Hattie, Amber + Greg | Richmond Family Photographer
