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 […]

The Loncars Extended Family | Sandbridge, Virginia Beach

Growing up in a big family, I’ve always had a soft spot for big families.  I thrive off of the slight chaos and all the different personalities. I love how there’s always someone to chat with.  And as we’ve all grown and started families of our own, it’s nice to watch our kids play together. […]

Navy + Blush Wedding at The Water Table | Chelsea + David | Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

Every bride gets a little nervous through the process that it might rain on her wedding day.  It’s that one piece that you can’t control no matter how much you plan.  But for Chelsea, it was a much more difficult situation than that.  There was higher than normal flooding the week leading up to her […]

Large families have a special place in my heart, so when the Switzer family contacted me about a large family session, I was all about it!  Once we got to Little Island Park in Sandbridge, it turned out to be the most beautiful day with perfect weather.  All thirty five family members were friendly, easy […]

Chelsea + David | Virginia Beach Oceanfront Sunrise Engagement Session

Chelsea + David flew in Thursday night and got in bed sometime after midnight… then were at the oceanfront for their engagement session at 5:45am on Friday!  Yes, that’s quite insane, but ohmygoodness look at the pictures!  Sunrise was totally worth the sleepy yawns and coffee overdose.  😉 When we first arrived I was surprised at […]

Dana + Dave | Norfolk Engagement Photographer

I met Dana + Dave at a park on a Saturday morning and suddenly panic started to set in.  I typically chat with my couples ahead of time and make sure we’re a good fit, but with these two, time was of the essence.  We chatted on the phone briefly Thursday night and Saturday morning […]
