Anna, Andy and Ronus (short for Patronus…and you know how I LOVE me some Harry Potter…) met Jay and I at Windsor Castle Park in Smithfield Virginia last week for their engagement session.  Usually this venue is jam packed full of photographers doing family, engagement and seniors sessions, but this day, it was almost 100 degrees and we had the place to ourselves!  Anna, Andy and Ronus were such troopers and didn’t let the heat get them down at all.  I loved hanging out with them and getting to know them better.  And Ronus is an amazing Pup!  He knows so many great tricks, is super well behaved and LOVES his Mama and Dad!  Their wedding at the Botanical gardens is going to be so amazing, I can’t wait!!  See you two soon!!!  XOXO!

Cady (pronounced Katie) is a Senior at Ocean Lakes High school in Virginia Beach Virginia!  I predict she is going to set the world on fire!  She has big plans to attend UVA next year and is excited to tackle her last year in High school.  She plays field hockey for the Dolphins and while she has some trouble putting her amazing smile away and giving me her fierce face, she tells me she does NOT have any trouble scoring for her team! Cady | Senior Portrait  I had the best time hanging out with her at her school and at First Landing State Park.  While the bugs did try to eat us up, we were rewarded with a beautiful sunset!  Thanks for the fun night Cady!  Have a blast this year!  And good luck on the field!  XOXO!

I met Jamie & Alex several years ago when I shot their engagement session.  It was one of the coldest and windiest days I have ever experienced in Virginia Beach, Virginia!  They were such troopers and I was amazed with them!  I was so excited when they called me and asked me to take photos of them with their baby!  Kinsley was smiling straight out of the car and did a great job at our session!  We worried about rain all day…but it was never a factor for us…and we even were treated to a very faint rainbow for a few minutes.  Thanks for trusting me to capture this time in your lives!  It was so great to see you both again and to meet your beautiful Daughter!!

Kendall & Erik were married in Powhatan Virginia at the beautiful Fairview Farm!  Their wedding day was an emotional day filled with tears, joy and so much love!  Kim Moody Design did an amazing job making sure all the details were in place and I LOVED working with them!  We had such an amazing time being a part of this special day for these two families.  Kendall was absolutely STUNNING and her smile literally lights up any room she is in!  When her and Erik shared a quick moment before the wedding (they didn’t see one another, but go to hold hands)…she told him she was nervous and to squeeze her hand tighter!  He did and you could see her nerves disappear.  Erik recently lost his Father, and Kendall her Grandfather, but I truly believe they were both there, looking over these two.  The day was supposed to be full of thunderstorms and there was not a single one!   And when Kendall reached Erik at the alter, a butterfly flew over them and them away.   They were so bathed in the love of their family and friends all day…those that made it and those that couldn’t.  Thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of this spectacular day.  It was truly such an honor!!
