Bowers Family

Everything is a first for me...since I'm still in the learning stages I get alot of things handed to me that I've never done but they are always learning tools in my new adventure! This one was a DOGGIE! Yepp, they brought along their lab (we have two so I was used to them) and what a sweet lil' pup...not to mention a pretty darn good looking family!

Nicely Bridals

Meet Jacklyn...a gorgeous bride! The early morning peacefulness, a cool breeze and the river rushing by made a very beautiful setting for her bridals. What made this session the best of all....both her and her mom, Libby, came completely prepared and are reallly super nice people! I'm excited to be shooting her wedding later in the month!

Brother Sister LOVE

This is one of those shoots that warms your was a time for me to watch two siblings who completely adore each other and capture it. These two were so fun, wherever big brother went...little sister followed. I hope that one day when my daughter gets a brother or sister that they have as much love between them as these beautiful kids!

Miss Peyton

This really was a fun shoot...she stayed on the go the entire time and was SOO funny, had me laughing non-stop! Peyton made my job easy by telling me exactly what pictures she wanted and what she wanted to be doing in them, one of my favorites being her carrying a wallet all over town as if she was shopping....tooo cute! Good luck on this one Mom & Dad, your gonna have your hands full with the boys beating down the door!

Bella Mae

Great maternity shoot! Had lots of fun with these two (three :) and it was a session that took me back to my own pregnancy. I loved watching mom and dad interact with each other and "the glow" just radiated off both of them, you can tell they are veryyy excited about becoming parents, and that I LOVE!

Another super fun shoot, with Zundra, using the beautiful background downtown Clifton Forge has to offer! We spent our time walking around the area and checking out all kinds of hidden nooks that made AWESOME back drops! And need I mention that this girl is amazingly beautiful? I think NOT!

Ohhhh Baby, Baby :)

This ended up being my first maternity session and I was very pleased with the results! I had a great couple to work with, even if Moms belly was TOO small to hold all the letters to form Miss Addisons name ;) These two will make great parents! Can't wait to meet baby girl!

Alleghany Highlands Red, White & Blue, 4th of July Parade

Our area held its FIRST ever 4th of July parade this year and I donated my services by taking pictures of the event! I loved this parade and it ended up having an overwhelming amount of entries which was amazing! This event was for such a good cause and I look forward to photographing it for MANY years to come!
