My not so little loves looking all grown up and very debonair.

This is a shot with my cell phone but I love it!


I love how timeless the black and white looks.

Newborn Sweetness – Little Miss G |Suffolk, VA Fresh 48 Photographer |

Join me in welcoming little Miss G. She’s absolutely beautiful!   Her first session – A Fresh 48 Session – was done at the hospital surrounded by her proud parents, big sister, and one of her dear grandmothers.  So much love for this little lady in that one room.  I loved seeing how Miss G was so peaceful and happy in her mommy’s arms, how she looked up at her daddy, the way her big sister held her closely, and the proud look on her grandmother’s face when she held her.  This precious little lady is all settled in at home now and I know all of her family and friends are embracing her with love.

You may be asking, “What’s a Fresh 48 Session.” This isn’t a traditional posed photo session. It’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s a photo session for a fresh new baby within the first 48hours of birth before they even leave the hospital. This type of lifestyle session captures a families first precious days with baby – Mommy’s glow, Daddy’s joy, Baby’s tiny features, and the details of Baby’s first room that are often forgotten once Mommy and Baby are all comfortable at home. Let me capture the first bonds you share with your new baby!  Contact me if you’re interested in your own Fresh 48 Hospital session with your new bundle of joy.


A Baby is On the Way! | Suffolk, VA Maternity Photographer |

Mrs. W contacted me a while ago about scheduling a holiday photo session for her family.  She and Mr. W had been high school sweethearts and including a throwback picture of them together was a must for their session.  However, busy work schedules and the holidays quickly approaching made it impossible to do the session at that time.  Well when Mrs. W called to reschedule, she called with even sweeter news that she was expecting and that their session would be a maternity session!     The W family is expecting a baby girl and I know they couldn’t be more excited!  I’m so happy that they chose ME to capture this special time in their lives.  Their baby girl will be arriving soon!








Miss A is O-N-E ! | Suffolk, VA Children’s Photographer |

It seems that I JUST did Miss A’s newborn session, but that was an entire yr ago!  Now Miss A is walking, talking, and love to give kisses to her favorite people.  I absolutely love the cute little outfits that Miss A styled for her one year session – the tutu and dress and WHO doesn’t love chucks?!?!   Time surely does fly and I’m happy that I was able to do Miss A’s one year photos.  I hope you enjoy viewing these as much as I enjoying seeing and photographing Miss A again!DSC_9699web





Newborn Sweetness Baby T

Meet Baby T.   He’s the little guy from the FRESH 48 HOSPITAL SESSION I blogged in April.  I also had the pleasure of also  doing a newborn session for this sweet little guy.  As always I enjoyed all the baby snuggles during this session.  I can imagine the time his mommy spends stealing sweet baby kisses and snuggles.    What a joy to do Baby T’s first sessions!
