There’s a belief amongst photographers that glitter is the best prop to make kids smile.  It’s a lie. Colorful pom pom balls are the best way to make kids smile! And I have proof: Lexi + Payton had so much fun throwing fluff at one another and into the air for their annual birthday session in the […]

I’m so blessed to have clients that have been with me since the beginning of their children’s lives.  I started to capture this sweet family when B’s big sister turned a year old.  For B’s birthday his momma knew we wanted to recreate big sister’s bathtub and cake smash photos. Sadly for her B was […]

Fall is both a blessing and a curse for photographers.  Past clients along with new faces love to get new family photos as the weather starts to turn.  It’s a very busy time.  The downfall is we often run out of time to share these gorgeous photographs with you until later in the winter.  Hello, […]

We are bombarded with mini sessions, Christmas sessions, snow sessions and every other type of session that is only available in the fall/winter. Being a photographer certain things fall through the cracks beginning in October and moving […]

Throughout the year I love to partner with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern West Virginia. This year for Christmas we decided to mix it up with an evening session during their holiday open house with Christmas pajamas. The kids were able to have their pictures taken then visit with Santa & Mrs. Claus. […]

A very rain summer has come and gone in West Virginia.  At times it seemed it rained more than the sun shined but we learned to go with the flow.  These sweet girls turned a very rainy day at the Capitol Market in Charleston, WV into so much fun.  Thank you to the folks at […]

It seems like yesterday I was traveling over 12 hours with a barely one year old to meet this sweet little girl in Alabama on her birthday.  I never imagined I could immediately love a child other than my own children but the moment I held her I knew I would protect her fiercely for […]

I cannot believe that it’s 2018!  Happy New Year y’all! The last year flew by so very fast.  Around September I lost track of time during the busy season and decided to focus on photographing your amazing photos until the new year.  I’m back to blogging, Facebooking and all things social media and web. Lots […]
