Nicole + Nathan | Married

I have my mother to thank for introducing me to this sweet, fun down to earth couple and their families! I was so honored to be a part of Nicole and Nathan’s (or as some still call him, Andrew 🙂 big day as they exchanged vows on the beach in Hampton, Va. BIG thanks to my girl Nicole Gridley of Nicole Jean Photography for second shooting with me and nailing that KISS! ♥ 🙂

Laila | Newborn

Little Miss Laila did not want to miss one minute of her photo session which is why she chose to give us just a short 30 minutes of sleep during her 4 hour shoot.  Thankfully it only takes a second to snap a photo and in the end, Im in love with the way they came out.  Isn’t she just the most beautiful baby girl?!  Gah!!!  I really need one of these! ❤

Luke Turns ONE!

I had the pleasure of photographing little Luke and his big sis Caylee when he was still such a tiny little guy last holiday season for my Holiday Mini Sessions.  This time, it was all about him as he leaps into toddlerhood!  He was just the perfect little model for me as we chased him all around the carnival with Popcorn and bubbles. 🙂  Happy 1st Birthday Luke!

Gracen Turns TWO!

Meet my little spitfire niece Gracen.  She has such a fun, adorable, vibrant personality and thankfully so.  She’s one of 6 children so her personality has to stand out!  She came screaming into this world two years ago today on July 3rd (so close to Independence Day) so it was only fitting to take her 2nd Birthday Photos in Red, White and TWO! (Thanks Erin Daniels Photography + Pinterest for the idea! )  🙂

Brianne + Ben | Engaged!

I just loved this session! I met Brianne Bass at our old watering hole years ago and we have kept in touch since. Within minutes of meeting her fiance Ben, you could tell these two were meant to be together. They were so fun and giggly and I just love that! Brianne suggested we go to the Pagoda in Downtown Norfolk and I was so excited because I had never shot there before. We ended wandering off and found several other quaint shoot spots along the way. I had such a great time with these two and seeing as though we are practically neighbors, I look forward to seeing them again in the future!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Jenn + Sean | Married!

I was over the moon excited to photograph the intimate wedding ceremony of Jennifer and Sean on a vinyard in Charlottesville, VA this month! The setting was perfect, the couple was perfect, the weather was perfect! Honestly, it was nothing short of perfect. If I was to do it all over again, this is exactly what I would have done. Thank you Jenn and Sean for allowing me to be a part of your amazingly perfect day!! 🙂
