John {Virginia Children Portraits Photographer}

I have had children smile, make silly faces, give me "attitude", pose, cry, laugh, but never run away from me. John was my first child to run away when I put my lens to my face. It was actually really funny. I had to catch him in action for some great shots, but it was oh so worth it. John is such a sweetheart, loves his swing set/slide, his papas cart and boat and his trucks.  He also loves to run and hide :) I had a great time playing John and I hope that I get to play with you again sometime! Here is your sneak peak mom and dad. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed photographing your family!

Gillian {Virginia Children's Portrait Photographer}

Remember my summer time contest I had? Well Gillian was the winner and we finally got together to do her shoot. HOW CUTE is SHE! I wish that I could have gotten a photo of her daddy making faces behind me :) We met after my fall mini sessions at Bloomers in Eastville and even though the wind was crazy, we had a great time.
Enjoy your sneak peak mom and dad and Gillian I hope we get to play again one day!

Fall Mini Sessions {Virginia Portrait Photographer}

Last saturday, I had my fall/halloween mini sessions at Bloomers in Eastville, Virginia. It was a really really windy day, but it didn't seem to bother anyone.  Thank you everyone who came out. I had a blast and I can't wait to do it again next year! I haven't seen so many cute kids all in one place! I wanted to take them all home with me to play with my girls! I also loved how a few of them brought their halloween costumes :)  A personal thank you to Betty, owner of Bloomers for allowing me to come out all day on saturday and use your pumpkin patch and store. Thank you so much!! Without further adue, here are your teasers! Enjoy!

Alison & Michael {Eastern Shore of Virginia Wedding Photographer}

I have known Michael for as long as I can remember. Growing up we lived right around the block from each other and even though I was more friends with his older brother we still talked, played in the high school band together and saw each other in the hallways in between classes, then life happened. Fast forward like 12+ years, I get a email from Alison asking me to photograph her wedding and said she would like for me to meet with her and her fiancee (Michael Henry). I was so happy for her and to hear that Michael was getting married and even more happy that they have asked me to photograph their special day. Thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful wedding and to be a part of your day. Congrats to the both of you and I hope you enjoy your sneak peak~ Enjoy!!
