Alimentary Roots: Portrait Session

There are moments in photography when you pull your camera from your eye to look at the shot you just captured and can’t help but grin exuberantly, shriek with glee, and freak out your client in the excitement their beauty gives you. I consider it such a privilege to capture people in all their differencesContinue reading “Alimentary Roots: Portrait Session”

Stewart Family: Mariner’s Museum Park, Fall Session

I wish everyone could know this family. Darnell & Quana became good friends to me in 2019, and their down to earth personalities, honesty about the hard things of life, and “God is good all the time” faith has been such a gift to me. (Not to mention dance parties with hide & seek gamesContinue reading “Stewart Family: Mariner’s Museum Park, Fall Session”

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

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.

Rivera Family: Oak Grove Lake Park

The Navy isn’t always our friend here in Hampton Roads, often stealing loved ones away for months out at sea. But one joy of photography is getting to capture families together in a memorable photo experience that they can hold onto when those big ships come calling to take sailors away on their all-expenses-paid cruisesContinue reading “Rivera Family: Oak Grove Lake Park”
