Jorgensen Family | Yorktown Beach Family Photographer

When extended family comes in town, it’s the perfect time to schedule a photo session!  Rachel reached out for a session around graduation time.  We did a family session with her family, and some extended family pictures as well (scroll to the end of the post for those!).  The one thing they told me was […]

Davis Family | Canton, NC Family Photographer

In 2005 Josh and I were engaged and we still led pretty separate lives.  We lived in different counties, went to different churches, and were excited to begin to combine our lives.  One Sunday I was visiting his church and there was a guest pastor who was about to plant a church in the county […]

Creekbed Mini Session with the Heiny Family |Chimney Rock, NC

This goes down on record for being the fastest mini session I’ve ever done!  We were racing against the rain and… got poured on.  Our equipment is weather sealed, so I wasn’t concerned about that, but it started raining so hard that you could see the raindrops in the photos, and everyone was absolutely drenched.  HUGE […]

Diggs Family | St. Petersburg, Florida Family Photo Session

Greetings from St. Pete!  We had a blast taking some after-storm photos in St. Pete with the sweet Diggs family!  They chose one of their favorite parks for their family photos and it was the perfect mix of park and water and bright fun colors.  Despite the thunder and lighting leading up to the session, […]

Williamson Family | Extended Family Photos at Sandbridge, Virginia Beach

What do you do when you have to do a session on a certain day but it’s raining?  Well, there are a lot of possibilities: a covered outdoor area, indoors, a studio session… a rainy session outside.  But with little kids, it wasn’t a great idea to be in the rain, and it was so windy […]

Menser Family | Extended Family Photo Session at Fort Monroe

I’m pretty fond of this sweet family!  We had a fantastic time at Fort Monroe with the gorgeous sunlight shining through those trees that I love so much.  This is, in fact, my favorite spot on the peninsula to photograph! I also love working with extended families.  Seeing grandparents, cousins and everyone interact is so […]

Goy Family | Fort Monroe Family Photos

The week leading up to Greg’s session with his two daughters, the weather forecast was grim.  Rain every day, all day.  But then… every day it just didn’t rain.  The forecast continually said it was going to rain in the next few hours… but continually pushed it back again and again. It only rained a […]

Marshall | Sandy Bottom Nature Park Mini-Session

This little ray of sunshine celebrated his birthday with a sunshine filled photo session!  I absolutely adore his cheesin’ smile and personality!  And… bubbles.  And that blonde hair and blue eyes.  My heart!!  Mini-sessions are perfect for times like this.

Happy Birthday Malia! | Hampton, Virginia Family Photographer

Around this time last year I was photographing Drew + Eden’s maternity session, and here we are already with Malia’s first birthday pictures!  We went to downtown Hampton and Malia took a nap on the way. She was so sweet when she woke up though, and although sleepy, she started to let her personality shine […]
