Meet the L Family | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

Meet the L Family!  You may remember the littlest sweet face from her newborn session and  1st birthday cake smash session, but this session was for the entire L family.  It’s always a pleasure working with them.   I love the coordinating outfits that mom chose for the girls and that their family photo is now on canvas and hangs in their living room.

Look Who’s One! | Suffolk, VA Children’s Photographer |

Yep,  This little cutie!   It seems like she was JUST born.  My a year goes so quickly!  While Miss R didn’t eat much of this beautiful pink sweetness, she sure had fun touching, squeezing, and smooching it in her hands.  She was happy doing just that!  Miss R didn’t make a huge mess of her cute little outfit and she might be the cleanest cake smash baby ever!  ReeceCake Smashweb

The W Family – 10 Years and a Whole Lotta Love Later | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

10 years later and they took their family back to where it all began – to the charming clapboard church where they pledged their love to each other. We started the W Family session in the very spot where mom and dad posed for wedding photos. A lot of great things can happen in 10 years and the W’s were joined this time by their 5 beautiful children. It was a perfect day for their session and I’m happy to share a few from this lovely session from such a special location. Happy 10th Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. W!







Another Beautiful Family Session | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

I really do think I photograph the most beautiful families.  You may remember Miss Camille the fur baby from HERE.  Well summer break was the perfect time for everyone to come together for the W family photo session at a gorgeous park location.   It was HOT, but we found some cooler shady areas with just a short walk to the edge of the woods.  Mrs. W…. I apologize for not warning you about the trip into the woods!   I had a perfect backdrop and a beautiful family and I’m happy to share photos from the W Family session!

Meet the H Family – Family is Love | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

It was such a great pleasure to work with Mr. and Mrs. H and their beautiful children.    Handsome Little Mr. A was immediately my friend and a great helper and his new little sister Miss A  – their newest love…..well she’s absolutely gorgeous.   We started this session right at their beautiful home and then moved on to another lovely location.  I’m happy to share a few of my favorites from this beautiful family’s session.






Another Pretty Little Lady – Miss A | Suffolk, VA Newborn Photographer |

So tiny, so precious, so perfect and pretty.  Meet Miss A- my latest newborn subject who was born just in time for her beautiful mommy to celebrate Mother’s Day 2014.    She started out awake and wide – eyed but ever so calm, but  after a little snuggle time with mommy, Miss A soon drifted off into sweet dreams.    What a joy it was to work with this little lady and her  mommy!

Something Different – A Fur Baby Named Camille | Suffolk, VA Pet Photographer |

There’s a 1st time for everything right???  Well this was a first for me!  Meet Miss Camille -a beautiful fur baby!  I met her and her mommy-person for a quick session in the park.  Miss Camille was so excited to be in new territory, but paused a few times for a photo op.  This was definitely different, but fun and I hope that her mommy-person loves these images as much as I do!

Miss K – As Cute as She Can BEE | Suffolk, VA Newborn Photographer |

Please join me in welcoming another pretty little lady – Miss K!  She’s as cute as she can BEE.  I love this little outfit that mom had picked out for her – perfect for a warm spring day!  Miss K wasn’t too sleepy when we started, but after a meal some warm snuggle time,  she was soon in dreamland.  As always I enjoyed working with Miss K and getting some precious baby cuddle time too!  Welcome Miss K!
