{Featured Session} Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Hampton Roads Premier Smash Cake Photographer

“Purple, gold and over the top!!” That was what Ellie’s mom wanted for her one year portraits/smash cake session!!  I had so much fun picking out all the custom props since purple is my favorite color. I am so thankful I had the privilege of capturing Ellie’s newborn portraits and now her one year portraits. Thank you for trusting me with the milestone’s in Ellie’s first year.

{Featured Session} Norfolk, Virginia USS Harry S. Truman Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron Homecoming

Life can be so hectic and overwhelming especially when your better half is gone. On the other side of the world for 244 long tiring days. After several extensions, The Nightdippers from Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 5 returned home. I would like to give a shout out to my friend Amanda who helped me cover this homecoming. I only capture one family per homecoming but I asked Amanda to join me to make sure this family had their last fly-off homecoming captured.

{Featured Session} Norfolk, Virginia USS Harry S. Truman Military Homecoming

The air was crisp last September when this family contacted the studio and booked me for their homecoming portraits. I only book ONE family per homecoming to ensure I capture every anxious moment, every tear, every smile and every kiss!! I know exactly how this family felt as they counted down the days yet the days continued to stack higher as the deployment was extended several times. Each time the mother would contact the studio to adjust the homecoming date and I my heart would grow heavy for them. After 244 days at sea, the USS Harry S. Truman finally arrived home in Norfolk, Virginia and The Nightdippers from Helicopter Sea Command Squadron 5 flew off and into their loved ones arms.

{Featured Session} Norfolk/Virginia Beach Virginia Military Homecoming Photographer

I was so blessed to meet and photograph this fun loving family!! I smiled throughout the whole session that my cheeks hurt the rest of the night.  The girls were a hoot twirling and spinning in their matching LuLaRoe dresses. They were non stop during the session and I was able to capture their true personalities and genuine smiles.  You can just look at the portraits and see how much love this beautiful family shines! Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your family portraits!

{Fresh 48} Hospital Portraits: Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake Newborn Photographer

I am writing this post with so much emotion I don’t even know where to begin. All I can say is…

 WELCOME TO THE WORLD LYDIA HAZEL!!!

This beautiful family has endured more heartache than any family I have ever met. This family has been extremely courageous through the years. I use the word courageous because the definition means “not deterred by danger or pain; brave”. What other adjective could describe this family? They have endured six pregnancies in which four out of the six ended in varying degrees of trauma and tragedy. Each time they lost a child, they braved another pregnancy. The only explanation for their courage is the light that their sweet daughter Miranda shines every day and night. Miranda was their only success story to date. Pregnancy after loss is excruciatingly stressful and anxiety is unavoidable. This family has been on edge for the last 39 weeks awaiting the arrival of their second daughter.  I am so pleased to announce the birth of Lydia Hazel.

In loving memory of Donovan, James, Baby #1 and Baby #4.
