A Beach Vacation | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

They were here for just a short stay. I had such a wonderful time with them on them on the beach though. It was one of our crazy weather days where every forecast is calling for rain and then it clears at the last minute. We had the most amazing overcast light for their session.

These were a Father’s Day gift for a deployed daddy. What a special gift for him. And this momma will be very happy to have him back home soon. <3

They gave me a peek what having older boys will be like. Bring on the wedgies, the wrestling, the laughter and the adventures.

{Jump} | Virginia Beach Family and Child Photographer

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

This was a vision that started as something else. Inspired by a color palette and an idea for a headboard that I handmade. I adore where this inspiration led me and what this shoot transformed into.

1st Place Honor | Virginia Beach Children and Family Photographer

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

This past week I received the news that one of my images won 1st place in the Family category of the January 2012 NAPCP International Image Competition!

I am so thrilled and honored that this image was chosen. It’s one of my all time favorites of a family that I adore. You have probably seen it before. It’s one of the main images on my website and blog. But I’ve never actually featured the session yet. So, I thought I would share a few more.

It rained…and it rained…and it rained.

Miss S ~ 3 Months | Norfolk Baby Photography

I could flirt with Miss S all day. She gives you the biggest smile that lights up the room.

{Baby Bits} | Virginia Beach Newborn Photography

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Baby C was a dream baby to photograph. Not only was he the sleepiest, but (with the exception of a diaper malfunction) was accident free! Thank you to his beautiful family for allowing me to capture his first days. And if you haven’t seen them already, be sure to check out their maternity session back in January. She made a gorgeous preggo! /blog/?p=855

{Friends} | Virginia Beach Children’s Photography

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

This vision started with a mirror. A friend’s mirror that I kindly asked her to trek through the mud with it. :) She brought along her great-grandmother’s umbrella and I squealed when I looked at this test frame…

And then we let the girls have fun in a field with gorgeous golden light.

{Waiting} | Virginia Beach Maternity Photography

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

This family is waiting on baby and waiting for Daddy who sadly won’t be making it back from deployment in time for the birth of their new addition. Thank you to the “B” Family for your sacrifice!
