“God creates the beauty. My camera and I are witness.” (Mark Denman) That is how I feel when I am doing wedding photography.

Anyone else miss the pre-covid wedding days? Celebrating with friends and family, sans face coverings and social distancing?

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!!
