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!

Welcome Little Miss A ! | Suffolk, VA Newborn Photographer |

I had the pleasure of photographing the sweetest little bundle of joy before the holiday rush!  Miss A wasn’t due until the very end of the yr, but she had other plans and decided to join her family just in time for Thanksgiving!  She may have arrived early, but there was not much hanging around in NICU for Miss A.  She was soon at home to be loved by her beautiful family.  Talk about a wonderful reason to be grateful and the best Christmas gift for her family.  Welcome Little Miss A!!!

Finally I can share! – 2013 Holiday Photos | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

FINALLY! I can share a few holiday photos.  I didn’t want to share anyone’s holiday card photos before they were all sent out to family and friends, so I impatiently held off.  It was such an honor to photograph each of these beautiful families once again and it is my pleasure to share a few here.  I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas!

Mr. J is 2! | Suffolk, VA Family Photographer |

It surely was nice seeing Mr. J and his family again.  You may remember Mr. J’s session when he was just a few months old and just starting to take in the world around him.  He’s just as handsome now, but he is not just watching any more!  It didn’t take long before he warmed up to having his photo taken and before I knew it, he was showing me his big jumps and how fast he could run and his beautiful smiles.  It was a great session with Mr. J and his family.

Miss A – She’s Starting a New Chapter | Suffolk,VA Teen Photographer |

Meet Miss A. I recently had the honor of photographing this beautiful young lady. Yep… she’s gorgeous and if you ask the person closest to her you’ll find that She’s also smart, confident, dedicated, and loyal. Miss A is a cheerleader, dancer, singer and she even plays the violin which means that she’s organized, creative, outgoing, and very well rounded. This girl is on FIRE and it’s just the beginning of her high school career. She’s jumped in with both feet and she’s continuing to make those who love her very proud. I’ll for sure be looking forward to hearing about Miss A’s great endeavors and accomplishments. Miss A – May success and a smile always be yours!
