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 […]

A few years ago I captured Kaitlyn from George Washington High School’s older siblings senior session.  It makes my heart so happy when parents trust me to photograph not one but TWO of their children’s senior photographs. Kaitlyn was a natural in front of the camera plus her outfits were swoon worthy.  Congratulations Kaitlyn.  Thank […]

I absolutely love to photograph red heads like Grace from Sissonville High School. During the session inevitably I’ll end up telling a story about my own little red head at home and my client’s mom will declare that she did the same thing at my daughter’s age. It’s as though red heads share certain personality […]

It was a bumpy year for the students at Roane County High School including my absolutely stunning client, Payton.  The year began  with losing one of their beloved fellow students during a football game, then ended with Coronavirus.  Unfair doesn’t begin to cover the situation. Despite the cloudy days Payton always seems to have a […]

We started Nitro High School senior Madison’s senior sessions the end of last summer when it was sunny, happy and the year seemed like it held nothing but possibilities. We excitedly discussed how her prom dress would look and where we’d go for pictures in the spring.  Little did we know the spring would not […]

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, […]

When my childhood friend Terra told me about her new shop located in South Charleston, WV I knew we had to celebrate. She opened Seventh Boutique & Beauty Bar, which is a one stop shop for beauty services and unique clothing/items! The shop had been a dream of hers for many years and seeing it […]

A few years ago I capture the lovely Natalie’s senior session. During her session I captured what I refer to even today as the “Taylor Swift” shot — she looked exactly like T. Swift in the image! I was thrilled when Kyle, Natlie’s brother, booked a senior session with me this winter. Kyle is a […]

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 […]
