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.

Chubrick Family | Sandy Bottom Nature Park

I’ve actually lost count on how many family sessions I’ve done with the Chubricks, but I think we’re at 11!  This family is pure joy, and watching these kids grow up is incredible.  This year, their daughter was really into photography, so I let her take a few photos during the session.  We also found […]

Danielson Family at Sandy Bottom Nature Park | Hampton, VA

I’m a big fan of extended family sessions, and I get to do them several times a year, which thrills me!  Let’s face it– getting everyone dressed and in the same location for photos is basically a miracle.  And for this family, an ocean was crossed in order to make this happen! I’ve known Alicia (in […]

Eden + Drew | Hampton Roads Maternity Photographer

We had an absolutely perfect day for Eden + Drew’s maternity mini-session at Sandy Bottom Nature Park in Hampton, VA!  36 weeks is right about the perfect time for maternity pictures, too.  The baby belly is nice and full, and typically this is right when moms are teetering on the edge of being totally done with […]

Jackson Family Mini Session | Sandy Bottom Nature Park, Hampton, VA

We love referrals!  When a previous client refers us to their friends, they also typically let them know a little bit about who we are and how we work.  It’s really great because then clients come to the session already knowing what to expect!  With the Jackson family we got a great variety of pictures […]

Jenny + Ty | Engagement Photos at Sandy Bottom Nature Park, Hampton Virginia

The first time I met Jenny + Ty I totally put my foot in my mouth.  It was during a family session with Jenny’s family and they were so natural around each other I just assumed the were married!  Turns out, they weren’t even engaged at the time, but the next month, Ty popped the […]

Hunter Family | Sandy Bottom Nature Park Family Photos | Hampton, Virginia

One of my very favorite things about this business is that we are almost always referred by previous clients.  People who have gone through the process with us, loved the experience and their products, and told their friends and family about us.  It’s a huge honor!  The Hunter family was referred to us by one of […]

Family // The Alexanders Mini-Session at Sandy Bottom Nature Park

We’ve had this session planned for months, and then when the week rolled around that we had it scheduled, the leaves were just as green as they were in the spring!  So we pushed the session back a few weeks and hit the changing leaves right on the money!  Say hello to the Alexander family… […]
