My little model finally gave me a break and put on the elaborate butterfly headpiece I've had sitting in my office for weeks. It only lasted a few moments, but I was able to capture a couple shots.

 For those lucky enough to hold a military base pass, there is a beach on the northern edge of Virginia Beach that is practically empty!  

We took the kids to Fort Story beach today to scope out some family session sites and felling love with the big waves, prist...

I recently had the honor of photographing a US Air Force change of command.  

This family holds a very special place in our hearts and we could not be more proud of them as they move in to the next phase of Air Force life.  They lead by example and bring some muc...

This is the questions asked by every single visitor we've had since we moved to Yorktown in Hampton Roads. My answer is always, "Well, that depends."  There are beaches at pretty much every single turn and our house even backs up to a tiny tributary of the Chesapeake B...
