My hope is that this blog inspires you to document what matters most to you. I'm a photographer and also a mom to 3. My photography is inspired by the fleeting moments I've found in motherhood.

This was an extra special beach family session. I did their maternity photos at this same location. We went back, but this time with their adorable one-year-old in tow! 

I’m all about unposed, candid moments, genuine giggles, and authentic connections. Your time with me is focused on capturing the incredible bond that you share with those closest to you. When you look back in twenty years, I want you to feel what it was like to be in that moment and to remember what it was like when your kids were in that stage. 

When little ones are involved, it’s all about making the experience fun and engaging. We keep things moving so they don’t have a chance to get bored during our session. I love to play little games and be a little silly with them to keep them engaged. Letting kids be themselves helps us to get the best pictures. And encouraging laughter and having fun makes sure we get photos that reflect their sweet personality. 

I don’t want you to ever feel pressure about having perfectly behaved children or needing to be perfectly posed during your session. The best thing you can do is plan to show up and have fun with your kids and your family. Truly, these are the times we get the very best photos. The connection you have with your kids will be so evident when you are playing and cuddling them. These are the sweet memories that you will want to look back on when they are grown. 

This was a cold day, but nothing a few layers couldn’t handle. We bundled up the little one toward the end to keep her cozy and warm. The extra snuggles with mom and dad didn’t hurt either! It made for some seriously adorable moments. 

You know that I am a big fan of keeping outfits neutral during family sessions. Their choice of neutral clothing went great with the beach. It wasn’t distracting and allowed them to shine in the beautiful location.  

As a Virginia Beach photographer, my goal for your beach family session is simple: capture the magic of the moment. I want these photos to transport you back to this day, to remind you of the joy, the love, and the laughter shared with your little ones. Because in 20 years, you’ll want to remember those chubby hands, those belly laughs, and those messy kisses.
