Princess’ in the Woods

As a documentary photographer, I prefer to shoot my clients in familiar settings-primarily their home. However, a location that is near and dear to their heart is great too. On family land, chasing their dogs among open fields, cows, a creek, and mountains. Playing in the tree house in the middle of the woods that the family used for hunting trips and games of hide and seek.

This family. Oh my goodness this family. I always look forward to their sessions and this past fall was nothing short of amazing. They live in the most beautiful place in the county; among mountains, streams, and the most gorgeous fall color you ever laid eyes on.  Enjoy!

Oh how I love this little family. I’ve documented baby B’s parents engagement and then wedding. Watching and documenting their family grow from 2 to now 3 has been such a blessing. THIS is why I’m only offering in-home documentary photography for families in 2016. Documenting your REAL life, real connections, real emotions. Because REAL IS BEAUTIFUL.  You feel most comfortable in your own home so it feels only natural to document you where are you most comfortable.

She has grown up so much since the first time I photographed her a year ago. I can’t believe she is a one year old! Happy Birthday Charlotte!

At the Library|Front Royal, VA Lifestyle Photographer

My little guy LOVES books.  Before Christmas, we went through all of his toys.  To donate what he doesn’t play with to make room for new. He was great about it. We donated a lot of toys.  But he could not part with any of his books. Even the baby books.

On this particular day, we were out exploring, testing out my new camera at different locations when we decided to make a trip to the library.  Our trips don’t last long, in less than 10 min he will have a stack of books so high I have to stop him or I won’t be able to carry them all! 

I will treasure these pictures forever. I hope he continues his love of books and reading as he gets older.

I want to thank everyone for your support in 2012.  I wouldn’t be where I am today without each one of you. I’m looking forward to a great 2013. I hope to learn and grow more as a photographer and I’m excited about working with new clients this year! 

Christmas Baby

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas filled with family, friends, and love! We had a white Christmas this year. Nothing major, just decorative snow. Little man was a little disappointed it wasn’t enough to have a snow ball fight.  I didn’t take many pictures this Christmas which disappointed me to no end BUT sometimes it’s more important to be in the moment rather than worrying about getting that great shot.

This precious little angel was such a ham for my camera. We didn’t get to spend enough time together when I took these; but I’m hoping for a round two in a few monthsSmile

I love when I get to shoot a family again and again. To see their family grow and change. This special family has been on the blog before, documenting their family when they were just a family of 3 when baby “L” was still just a bun in the oven and when she was first born. My how time flies!
