Fredericksburg Event Photography; {Baptism}

August 20, 2012

The church was brilliant.  Unimaginable gorgeousness.  Hank and I were honored to have been asked to photograph this once in a lifetime event.   It was a dual baptism, a very large, tremendously close family, honoring their commitment to God and their church.   The ceremony was conducted completely in Spanish….the most beautiful language.   […]

Have Camera, Will Travel.

July 16, 2012

Hank and I love doing destination shoots…even if it’s only an hour and a half away!  This shoot brought us to the mountains of Virginia.   Family gathered, kids played, food was served, and pictures were taken!   It was a fantastic day for a shoot, and the scenery was breathtaking.  These are a few […]

She’s 5 months….

May 29, 2012

I’m sure it flew by. The next 5 will, and the 5 after that… Little Miss R was full of smiles! Of course, a 5 month-old needed a few breaks during our shoot! But, that was perfectly fine by me. She was a joy to have in the studio. Her grandma brought her to me […]

At the Battlefield

May 22, 2012

When this Dad called me to take his family pictures, I was beyond thrilled.   Hank and his brother were Naval Academy roommates, and we are so fond of their entire family.  When we met for their portrait session, I felt like we were having a reunion with long time friends.   That’s just how […]

At the Marina

May 8, 2012

For this family shoot we went from their own back yard for a few pics with their precious four legged family member, to the Marina with the amazing views and fantastic boats as our backdrop.  The light was so dreamy at 9 was perfect!   I have to laugh during my shoots where we […]

Double Trouble!

April 30, 2012

Not really… I’ve watched these two kiddos grow over the past 2 years…they are incredible little people!  And their mommy is equally incredible.   This particular shoot was a studio mini session.  Mom needed a formal picture of her in her uniform with them, and it turned out beautiful!   Little E was so happy […]

Don’t say “cheese!”

April 5, 2012

Lovin’ the way this Spring session turned out!   My favorite shots are the funnest..the ones where I succeed in capturing the natural smile, belly laugh, actual kid, and not the “cheeeeeeeeeeese!!”    My philosophy is, whatever it takes!   I will bring out the bubbles, chalk, twirly gigs, and the famous Sophie the giraffe […]

Lil’ Norman

April 2, 2012

Little Norman was all of 5 lbs.  when I first met him for his newborn session.  Look at him now at 6 months!  They grow so fast.  And the changes they go through.. I’m amazed at how much mine change on a daily basis…expressions, mannerisms, moods.  These are the things that I love capturing with […]

Shout out to my hubby

March 26, 2012

So, while playing around in the studio after a shoot, Hank took this picture of me…..  The lighting, oh I just love the lighting!   My hubby is talented, no doubt.   Ok, ok, he doesn’t just shoot with me.  He has so many roles, I honestly don’t know how he keeps up. But somehow, […]
