Clair + Joe | Fly-In Homecoming | Virginia Beach Photographer

I can’t say enough about the sincere, strong emotions that were evoked on this day. Seeing this sweet girl, who waiting MONTHS (almost 8!) for her love to come home, tear up at the sight of his jet fly overhead..jumping into his arms, and having their lives complete again was such an honor to be…

Latanya + Jake | Mini Session | Chesapeake Photographer

I LOVE Latanya! We are photographer friends and the first night we hung out, we went to Waterman’s and had a blast! We giggled like school girls and got along just perfectly. She is great example of positive networking and support in the area that I am lucky to have found! Please go like her…

Jamie + TJ | Mini Session | Pungo Photographer

So sad that this is one of my last new client family sessions I will be shooting! (Unless down the road I change my mind, but this is the game plan for 2013– maternity, seniors and couples only!) Good thing they were sweet and fun and loving and made it a good time! We sort…

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…

Kyle, Ashley + Amelia | Glen Allen Family Photographer

Oh my gosh, typing “Glen Allen” family photographer just now was the best feeling ever! This is my HOMETOWN! My roots, where I grew up hoping to dream bigger and better than my little town..and my dreams led me right back to it. I am so grateful to be able to work in my very…

The Karim Girls | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

Fun fun fun ridiculous amounts of fun. Makes me wanna go home and demand Michael give me two more girls fun, HA! I love little girls because they are full of so much energy and life- and then they totally crack you up with sass and charm. Aubrey, Alexis and Anya made the BEST out…

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

Hmmm..how do I describe this..a session with an immensely talented and gorgeous artist with the prettiest pink hair on the planet..and to boot…I’m OFFICIALLY using my Mark III for this shoot……in the words of the trash tv children’s beauty pageants I’ve been watching..this is the “Ultimate Grand Supreme” Shoot!!!!!! 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!…
