There is no better time to capture family portraits then when you are on vacation together, seriously! You are all together, having a great time at THE BEACH, so why not capitalize on the opportunity. I especially love when families are including the Grandparents, it’s so special. Can I tell you a secret? I LOVE […]

Maddie & Drew’s story began at a boat show of all places! So it was only fitting that we went to Long Pointe Marina in Virginia Beach for part of their engagement session. Surrounded by beautiful, floating vessels and glistening water we captured lovely portraits of them together to celebrate their engagement! We were able […]

Aside from providing them with gorgeous photos that they can use for their Save The Dates or wedding website, I want them to become more comfortable in front of the camera together so on their wedding day they can really be their authentic selves.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Daysha & Elvin for a few years now. In fact, the last time I photographed them, little did I know, they were soon to be expecting a most precious baby girl!  I love my clients and when they can be flexible when Mother Nature is not, I love them […]

One of things I probably hear the most as a portrait photographer is, “I don’t know how well this is going to go but we’ll try” This is typically a statement made by a trepidatious parent who really wants family portraits but has the familiar  “You don’t know my children” tone in their voice. Knowing […]
