Brandi the Bride

This was such a fun and special photo shoot I had a hard time picking just a few pictures to share! Brandi and I have been friends for about 12 years now and it was very exciting to be able to photograph her in her wedding dress! Soo a week before she was to say "i do" I met her in downtown Roanoke to seek out the urban look she was wanting....WE FOUND IT! I was amazed at the pictures I took and how stunning she looked in every one of them! Enjoy!

A Little Piece of Heaven

I have known Tonya for a veryyy long time, since I was probably around 5 or so...many moons ago Tonya, myself and another long time friend Tana, made the front page of the VA Review for selling lemonade in Clifton. It was my pleasure taking these family photos for her! Her children, family and home were beautiful!

Super fun family photo shoot with the Haynes! Four kids, all different ages and being very well behaved, all made this into a wonderful photo shoot! I had alot of fun using different ideas and poses for their shoot and can't wait to work with them again!

Bring On The Rain

Here are a few pictures I took at home, during a HORRIBLE storm we had. Rain, rain and hail...the thunder was loud and rumbling, and the lightening was insane!

Averi & Tucker

First off, these two children just melt my heart when I look at their pictures, they have the sweetest faces! We did their shoot at an old train depot and Tucker was ALL boy "waiting" on Thomas to come pulling up!!! Averi looked beautiful in her flowered dress and made me excited to glimpse into the future for when Emma is her age!

Kerrie W.

Kerrie and I had set up this photo date a long time before I even got into most of my photography, actually it was right after I practiced on Brittany C. We had lots of ideas for places to go and looks we hoped to accomplish, and I believe we did it! We took off up to her land and basically just roamed around looking for the places we thought would make the best photos. Kerrie is a beautiful girl, and hopefully, with fingers, toes and everything crossed....her next session will be maternity!

Birthday Girl

For this photo shoot, I had the pleasure of capturing moments in a "Princess Theme" birthday party! What an adorable group of kids, not to mention they all were having a blast and I got to be right in the middle of it! Ohhh to be young again...

Dreama T.

Dream, had contacted me via facebook and explained that her and her daughter were both going to be in a wedding, and asked if I would come and snap a few pictures while they were dressed up. They both looked amazing!

Round Two Ward Family

A few posts back I did graduation pictures for Lauren, at the same time we had planned to do pictures of baby Rylee but the rain stopped us! We were able to schedule another time, and I believe these pictures speak for themselves! BEAUTIFUL FAMILY!

Today I met Noah and his parents at our local sports complex. He did what all kids do, PLAYED! and played hard he did....he had so much fun going back and forth between slides, rock climbing, and swings. Sometimes the best part of this is just to see kids enjoy themselves and capture the moments as they do! Enjoy these handsome photots!

Baby Zane

Zane was my first photo shoot with a baby, being only 4 months old, he did a WONDERFUL job! As you can see from the pictures, even without a nap he managed to give me the sweetest smile that would just melt your heart! Lets not forget about those adorable lil' piggys :)

Griffith Family

Amanda came to me with the idea of photographing her family walking along the railroad tracks, and it turned into so much more! With an absolute gorgeous setting it would have been hard not to have gotten to get any good pictures. The kids were fun, and Amanda & Kevin did a great job.

Carper Family

This family was super fun! It was Madelyn's birthday and her mom wanted some shots of her and her brother Garrett. We headed to the park and let them run wild. It's so fun to watch brothers & sisters interact and you could definately tell there's alot of love in that family!
