So...I NEVER get out in front of the camera, but I wanted an updated headshot and had makeup on for the first time in forever, so we snuck outside to grab a quick picture. Well...my littlest decided this was the time she needed ALL the hugs, so I was blessed with an impromptu mommy and me session. Love this little person more than anything in the world!
ps-big props to my husband for capturing these beautiful images! #naturalheadshots #headshots #mommyandme #yorktownfamil
Clara's favorite thing is to watch for the garbage truck every Monday morning :-) Our garbage lady waves and beeps the horn and it's a really fun way to start our week! -Plus you can't beat that beautiful light! #yorktownfamilyphotographer #childrensphotography #Kids #HamptonRoadsfamilyphotography #HamptonRoadsPhotographer #Virginia
It has been such a wonderfully busy season, I cannot believe how lucky I've been to meet so many sweet families and try out so many new and beautiful locations. This session was no different! I loved meeting this lovely family and playing with their adorable little boy :-) A huge thank you to all of my families this season!! #HamptonRoadsPhotographer #Smithfield #Virginia #CarroltonFamilyPhotographer #goldenhour #FallPhotography #naturalportraits #familysession #FallFamily
This sweet family was such a treat to photography yesterday! We had beautiful weather and beautiful light for this perfect fall day. The kids were adorable and this whole family was so easy going, it was easy to see how much they loved each other and how much fun they have just hanging out :-) A wonderful golden hour with wonderful people!! #goldenhour #FallPhotography #Virigina #HistoricYorktown #HamptonRoadsPhotographer #HamptonRoadsfamilyphotography #yorktownfamilyphoto
Excited to share that one of my images was chosen again this year as the honorable mention in the professional category for the Zoom in on Newport News photo contest! I'm humbled to be chosen for a second year in a row and had a great time taking my kiddos around town to capture some Newport News fun last year! #HamptonRoadsPhotographer #HamptonRoadsfamilyphotography #NewportNews #Virginia #Photocontest #zoominonnewportnews
This absolutely gorgeous family wanted to do their fall family photos at the beach and it was amazing!!! The light was beautiful, even though it was a cloudy and dreary evening. The sun finally popped out at the end and gave us some gorgeous dramatic skies. I had so much fun with them! And, can you believe the color of that water?? Fort Monroe is my little photography secret and the little section I shoot on is usually empty. Win!
We still haven't done our own famil
I've been getting crazy on Ebay and picking up vintage film lenses to use on my big DSLR camera bodies. They're 100% manual setting and focus, but they create some pretty cool effects. This one is a Russian made Helios 44-2 58mm f/2. It creates that wild swirly Boken in the background. I'm getting quicker at catching my fast moving kids with the manual focus, but I'm not quite ready to take it to a family session unless the kids are at least over 8 years old, lol!
I'm very proud to announce that I was chosen as the featured artist of the month at Share Six!
They honored me with a little interview as well...if you're interested in hearing more about my journey as a photographer, please check it out! :-) #featuredartist #photographycontests #LivingMuseum #NewportNews #Virginia #ShareSix
I'm not going to lie, this is my number one favorite beach in Hampton Roads. Virginia Beach is beautiful, but this little beach has waves that are perfectly sized for my little kiddos, the water is clear and there is wildlife all around!
We come here as much as we can, and the best part is that it's usually empty. You feel like you're on your own private beach and the kids can run and play without worry. We ventured out last week to catch the last little bit of sun and
How fun was this session?? I got to play fashion photographer to this beauty! Miss R is staring a new business and launching a blog and wanted some portraits to showcase her style and brand. This was SO much fun and a total departure from the toddler chasing of my day to day :-) If you're in the market for an unconventional portrait session, glamorous or otherwise, please give me a shout! I would do these every day if I could :-) A great collaboration and beautiful sessi
