Goodbye sweet summertime -- Can you believe it's already September?! Time is FLYING! A few weeks ago I spent some time in Virginia with my beautiful family and of course that meant spending time at my absolute favorite beachy backdrop in Virginia Beach. Colton and Alexa already know when I come around the camera comes out so these beach babes were ready to put on their best poses!
Time flies when you're having fun! Little Kara Rose is ONE! This little girl had so much fun digging into her cake and even wearing it! It was so fun to repurpose the same florals we used for her newborn session for her cake smash. <3
I've known the groom to be for as long as I can remember as he is the younger brother of one of my oldest friends. I was so excited to take John and Melanie's engagement photos. They are so genuinely in love that this truly was such an easy going session. Their adorable fur baby Mya even hopped into some shots and absolutely stole the show! I can't wait for their September wedding next year!
Little Miles had the best weather as we celebrated his first birthday on the beach! Cake, sunshine, and lots of snuggles from mom and dad -- what more can a lil babe ask for?!
Andrea, Ricky and their beautiful little girl Emma had PERFECT weather for their beach session. This lil girl love love loves her mommy and daddy and it shows in the photos. I hope they love these photos!
I've been DYING to share these images! Chris & Whitney had a beautiful wedding in May at the Salem Cross Inn. The backdrop was stunning, the weather was perfect, and the genuine love between the new Mr. & Mrs. was just so great to watch <3 I hope they love these images as much as I do -- picking for this sneak peek was hard let me tell you, there was just so many great ones to choose from! Best wishes and happily ever after Mr. & Mrs. Riley <3
I had so much fun with the "P" family recently. Vivian and Thomas have so much personality and are so so adorable! They loved their cake (and playing in it!) but I think the most fun was the "clean up" -- The twins had a ball in the sink and I had to capture the sweet fun these two had! I hope Mom & Dad love these images and cherish these sweet moments of their ONE year olds! :)
Merry is such a wonderful mama to her two babies that I was so excited she wanted to take advantage of the motherhood mini session. Norm and Everly are so used to me being around with a camera at this point it is second nature for them to pose and smile ;) There is no job more difficult or more rewarding than being a mama -- N&E are very lucky to call Merry "mom"!
Little Brayden was just such a little gentleman when we did his newborn photos. I couldn't have asked for a better baby! His parents Steph and Adam were just as wonderful and I had a wonderful time chatting about life as I photographed this very special time in their life - even their pup got in on the action! I hope they love these photos as much as I loved taking them. (I had such a hard time picking which to post in the blog!!)
During my time in Virginia, I spent time with my cousin and her beautiful family. We HAD to do some updated family photos -- the last photos we did were when precious little Alexa was born back in October! The weather was a little dreary and it was quite cold for the area but we made the best of it and I think the photos came out stunning - I may be biased I know but the background, their outfits, the smiles -- I just love it all!
