Warm Smiles on a Chilly Morning | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

I’m so happy that I was able to photograph the R family. There was the holiday rush, busy work schedules, rainy weather, travel, and cold temperatures but we made it happen! You would NEVER guess that this beautiful family met me on a very chilly morning for their session. There were no sleepy faces here and with coats and blankets within reach the little cuties didn’t even have a chance to shiver. Mom was just as radiant as always and Dad and Big Brother came with handsome smiles and tickles. R family – Rain, work, travel, holiday hustle, cold weather didn’t prevent your session and I’m so happy that I was able to work with you!

A Walk in the Park | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

What a perfect Saturday evening for a session at the park with the beautiful M family. I’d been to this park before, but only the play area for my own little guys to play. Not this time – We explored parts of the park that were a bit off the beaten path and perfect for some gorgeous family photos. I didn’t tell them before hand that we’d do a bit of trekking in the woods, but they were such good sports and the boys seemed to really enjoy it. They didn’t even ask about the playground equipment! M Family – You were such a pleasure to work with. Thank you for choosing ME!

Hugs, Giggles, and Love | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

An unseasonably warm evening in November and a beautiful location were perfect for this amazing session. There were lots of giggles, love, hugs and big smiles. Handsome Little Mr. X wasn’t camera shy at all and he and his beautiful mommy’s love definitely shined during this session. There is nothing like the love between a mother and a son! Thank you L and X for letting me capture just a little bit of your love on that warm November evening.

Family Is Forever | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

I’m so excited to share this beautiful family with you.     A gorgeous family, and a perfect location on a beautiful evening! ………and mosquitos!  Lots of them!!! But even those pesky creatures didn’t prevent us from getting beautiful photos.  We sang, clapped, and did all kinds of silly things to entertain Little Miss B and her sweet baby brother Mr. J.  I’m no singer, but can spout off the tunes to Elmo’s world and a few other kiddie songs.  I found out though that it was the actual MUSIC from a nearby family event that got Little Miss B really moving and smiling :-)…. and Little Mr. J – well he was showing off his fancy new walking skills and enjoying being out and all the little treasures to be found on the ground.   I’m happy that I was able to photograph this beautiful family and would like to welcome them to the area!




And because I love that it doesn’t always take a big smile to make a BEAUTIFUL image – one more of Little Miss B.

No Wagon For Mr. A’s Session | Suffolk Teen Photograper |

It seems that not too long ago, Mr. A was just learning to walk, chasing Leroy the orange cat, and riding in a red wagon.  Now he’s a young man who enjoys drawing, hanging with his friends, spending time with family, shopping – I believe he can find a deal with his eyes closed.  He’s a smart young man. He loves animals and aspires to be a veterinarian. There’s no more red wagon… he’s DRIVING now…and with begging and bribery I couldn’t convince him to take a photo in the wagon.  HAHA!  He’s a cool teen – No more little guy.    Time does fly! I’m so happy I was able to photograph Mr. A during his summer break.  Mr. A – I hope you’re off to a wonderful school year!

11th Grade – Here He Comes! (I’m loving the Chucks!)

And YES… sometimes he does forget that he’s supposed to be a tough guy and he SMILES.  He has a beautiful smile.  🙂

Mr. G | Suffolk, VA Children’s Photographer |

He. Is. Just. So. Handsome!  You must agree!  While my time with Mr. G was way too short,  I did get some awesome shots.  He showed me his serious side, but I also saw and captured the very happy side of a little boy all ready for some pool fun.   Little Mr. G has some great opportunities coming his way.  He is one of Wilhemina’s newest Models!  So be on the look out for this handsome little guy!  Mr. G – I hope that this experience is the best and that it opens up new doors and endless possibilities for you.

Super Baby G Turns 1 !!! | Suffolk, VA Children’s Photographer |

It’s hard to believe that I did Super Baby G’s newborn session almost a whole yr ago.   Time sure does fly. Super Baby G’s nursery theme was Super Heros and  He is indeed a super little boy!    Always smiling, he’s his daddy’s boy, his mama’s sweet baby, and he and his sister love each other to pieces. He has such a calm demeanor – watching, learning, and taking in everything.  Super Baby G has the power to make anyone who meets him smile.  His session was perfect – There were lots of smiles, kisses, and he showed off his new walking and climbing skills. He went from Super Hero to super SWEET cake baby, to all cleaned and suited up and resembling a mini version of his daddy.  I still can’t believe that he’s 1!  Happy Happy 1st Birthday Super Baby G!  Mmmmuaahhh!

Sweet Baby N on Day 10 | Chesapeake, VA Newborn Photographer |

Meet Baby N!  Isn’t he just the cutest tiny little bundle of joy!    Baby N was just 10 days old when I photographed him.  He was so sweet and  calm during his session and such a joy to work with.  Congratulations to the Y family and Welcome Baby N!
