Cummings Family: Ft. Monroe Beach Session

Don’t leave us yet, summer!!!! I love sessions like this one with Marcell, Hillary, and Max at Ft Monroe in Hampton. You might recognize this crew from last November. We had such a fun time keeping Max out of the fields of Cullipher Farm in Chesapeake, we wanted the other challenge of keeping him fromContinue reading “Cummings Family: Ft. Monroe Beach Session”

Fox Family: Sandbridge, VA, Beach Family Session

Fall is almost here but I’m holding on to beach time as long as Virginia weather allows!!! One family that keeps me enjoying the sand every August is a crew I grew up with in Northern Virginia, the Foxes! They have been coming to vacation in the Sandbridge area of Virginia Beach the last fewContinue reading “Fox Family: Sandbridge, VA, Beach Family Session”

Eric & Sharon: Gloucester Wedding

Anyone else miss the pre-covid wedding days? Celebrating with friends and family, sans face coverings and social distancing? While I know our current circumstances and the various regulations upon us are limits we all just have to accept as reality for right now, I still peruse weddings I shot in 2019 with such awe andContinue reading “Eric & Sharon: Gloucester Wedding”

Tyler: Yorktown Senior Session

I love how the world of photography allows me to meet such a variety of people here in Hampton Roads!! I was introduced to Amber through a Facebook connection, and when she said she wanted to book a senior portrait session for her son, “who loves baseball and the beach,” I was all in. AContinue reading “Tyler: Yorktown Senior Session”

Lydia: Newport News Newborn Session

One of the weirdest things about this covid-19 season is the number of maternity photo sessions I had booked that had to be cancelled… and then became newborn sessions!! It is so odd to go from seeing preggo women at church who are busting as the bellies, and then time passes and the next thingContinue reading “Lydia: Newport News Newborn Session”

Daric & Holly: Salisbury University

Last month, I was able to take a weekend to see friends in Salisbury, Maryland, where I resided from 2016-2018. A couple who I loved doing life with during those few years were Daric & Holly. They showed me how to love Jesus and love people in such practical ways, being constant fun, encouraging presencesContinue reading “Daric & Holly: Salisbury University”

A Swing Through 2019

Hello, friends! Happy 2020! Having time this month to slow down, regroup, and pray & plan for 2020 has been so refreshing. (Aside from the week I spent nursing my sick younger sister (a freshman at CNU) back to health from a virus, only to catch some kind of the bug myself and be outContinue reading “A Swing Through 2019”

Chase: Smithfield Senior Portraits

Exploring new areas of Hampton Roads through photography is such a perk I enjoy in this line of work. New locations bring fresh creativity and challenge me to try new things, and this senior portrait session at Windsor Castle Park in Smithfield, VA, did both those things! I have been to Smithfield a few timesContinue reading “Chase: Smithfield Senior Portraits”

Cloud Family: The Historic Cavalier Hotel

For years I have driven past the Cavalier in Virginia Beach and marveled at its beauty. When Beth (a CNU alumni friend) suggested it as their location for our family session last month, I was thrilled to get to see the grounds and enjoy some of the historic hotel’s grandeur! We gallivanted around (Baby SharkContinue reading “Cloud Family: The Historic Cavalier Hotel”

A Note on Thanksgiving + Cummings Family: Cullipher Farm

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and tonight I am sitting on the couch with some of my sisters, at home in Northern VA, bouncing between Hallmark movies and Say Yes To The Dress while I edit photoshoots. I know we all say this annually, but the holidays definitely snuck up on me this year. Life is soContinue reading “A Note on Thanksgiving + Cummings Family: Cullipher Farm”
