Just Say No... | Harrisonburg Virginia Child Photographer

...to naps! This sweet baby girl and a very patient big brother visited my studio. This little one wasn't altogether on board with the plans I had for her photo session, but we did get a few nice images for her mom. Her big brother was so very patient and played so nicely while their mom & I tried to convince the baby to fall asleep. As the youngest of five siblings, this little one knows if you close your eyes, you might miss something interesting! Honestly, the photos where it looks like she is snoozing, I think I just managed to catch her resting her eyes. I have to say I really love the image above. It looks like she was kind of chuckling at me when I suggested she might be getting sleepy ;-) I would love to do another session with her and all her siblings sometime soon. They are a beautiful bunch! Enjoy the peek....

Sisterhood | Staunton Virginia Photographer

As I currently live in a houseful of men (both big & small), this portrait session brought back many fun memories for me. Don't get me wrong, I love the rough & tumble world of boyhood! But, spending time with these three delightful little girls reminded me of the days when I had my three girls were little :-) I really enjoyed listening to them and watching them interact with each other. The images definitely show that sweet bond that sisters always have! Hope you enjoy the peek...

Beautiful | Child Photographer Harrisonburg Virginia

I happen to be someone who truly thinks all children are beautiful. There is a unique light that shines in each of them and it is so fun to catch little glimpses of the individuals they will grow to be. That being said, there are some children that are breaktakingly beautiful. Yes, I made up that word. It simply fit this little guy. My friend, Lisa, brought her son to see me this week and my first thought was how beautiful this child is...his face and especially his eyes are so expressive! While everyone likes images where little ones are smiling, I love that we captured so many different expressions from such a little fella! We definitely have a few smiling photos, but some of the others just crack me up! Lisa, thanks for visiting me and letting me take these portraits. It was so fun and I hope we can get together and let our boys play sometime soon. Enjoy your sneak peek!

Annie |Fort Defiance Senior


You wouldn't know it from the images and the smiles, but it was a bit rainy at the JMU Arboretum the evening we photographed Annie's senior session. Despite the occasional drizzle, I really enjoyed this session. Her whole family came along, including their three dogs :-) This crew is so relaxed and fun! Annie, you did an awesome job - especially considering Matt was messing with you at times ;-) You look beautiful and I can't wait to show you the rest of your portraits. Hope you all enjoy your sneak peek!
