What a smile! Despite the incredible heat & humidity last week, Kate did an awesome job during our photo session. Can't wait to finish up later in August. Enjoy the sneak peek!

Fort Defiance Senior {Shenandoah Valley Photographer}

I love this ring image...and I have to say all the football jersey images from this session were some of my favorites so far this summer. Enjoy!

Double the Sweetness + One {Shenandoah Valley Photographer}

This family photo session was one of the most fun mornings I have had in ages :-) Beautiful 10 month old twin girls and their four year old big brother are keeping these parents hopping! It was definitely a bit of work for us grown-ups, but I really love the images we captured. The girls are just adorable with their blue eyes, blond curls & chubby rolls. While they aren't quite walking yet, they are most assuredly on the move! Their mom, Amy & my assistant Caitlin were doing some serious aerobic activity helping me move the girls back into position for some of the photos. Their dad, Tony, did an awesome job getting smiles and giggles with lots of silly faces & antics. Their equally cute brother {A} was excited to share his new hermit crab with me and show us all his cool toys. I especially enjoyed photographing him down by the river near his house. Here's a quick sneak peek of a few of the images from the session. Amy, I was so excited to find someone who loves black & white photography as much as I do. I converted a number of images, and even textured the one below. It gives it an "vintage" look...but decided to hand paint Crabby back in just for fun :-) Cait & I had a great time with your family - you all seriously ROCK!

Hot, Hot, Hot...|Staunton, Virginia Photographer

...despite record heat here in Virginia, some brave high school seniors have been enthusiastic about having their sessions outside. I have to say these sessions are some of my favorites. It was great fun to meet Kylie and her sister in downtown Staunton for a morning photo session. There are so many interesting little walls, buildings and out of the way places there. Kylie did a wonderful job in front of the camera and I love the way her eyes sparkle! I can't wait to show her the rest of the portraits when she comes by the studio. A special thanks to Abby for helping with the reflector - way to find the light, girl :-)

Pretty in Pink | Newborn Photography

So tiny, cuddly and picture perfect....an irresistible package. This little one stole our hearts at a newborn session in Charlottesville a few days ago. We enjoyed our time with this sweet girl and her mom. It is always fun to try something new and I brought along a few props that I hadn't used yet in a newborn session. I love the pink paisley background :-)
Rachel, I hope you were able to get a nap in after we left. Enjoy your little sneak peek and we'll see you in just a few weeks!
