Meet Chad a 2015 Senior at Halifax High School.

As you scroll through these pictures you’ll learn that Chad can give a good serious face and a even better smile. He bow hunts and has a pup named Buddy.

We took them on their family land and the leaves were simply gorgeous and full of fall color. You can’t beat that! Chad’s mom, Cindy, came to me wanting his Senior portraits done which always makes me feel incredibly honored because Senior portraits are a BIG DEAL. Your last year of High School!

Enjoy!

Hey everyone! Guess what (as if you didn’t already know from the title)?!

Talkative Tuesday is back!

I can’t make any excuses for why I stopped doing posts. I just let my work take over my life. Plus moving, getting married, spartan races (we complete our tri-fecta this Saturday YEE!) and just everything in between. But, I really want to use this time to be able write special posts, give advice to clients, write thoughts down from my crazy coffee fueled brain and give you a little peek into my life and the various things I do, hear or see.


Today I want to share about the Woof and Wine event held by Paws and Claws SPCA that I attended this weekend at the gorgeous Sans Soucy Vineyards in Brookneal, Virginia.

There were so many wonderful things about this event. From the happy people roaming about drinking wine and chatting with their friends. To the smooth sounds of Dane Ferguson‘s voice in the background, but the best thing about this event were the dogs that were there. It was so great to see these dogs that were rescued given a chance to live and exist. You could feel their happiness radiating from their doggy smiles!

I was invited by my sweet mother-in-law, Susan, who is also a very active member of Paws and Claws, with the promise of it being great time! And when she says it will be a good time, you know it will. So, I brought a friend and we sat and ate delicious pizza and had samples of the wine (ended up buying two bottles of Oak and Berry – DELICIOUS).  As I was sitting there, I found myself thinking that these dogs would look so good being photographed in this moment. And then I remembered I had my camera in the car! Immediately I grabbed it and started snapping away snapping shots of dogs and their owners, dogs just by themselves and the  wonderful Paws and Claws SPCA group!

I hope you see the happiness I saw Saturday. Can’t wait for next year!

Meet the Stevens Family!

I am so blessed to know these people! And MY what I handful Jennifer and Johnny have with all FIVE boys they have! They are just so wonderful with their children. You can just really feel that they’re just happy people and happy to have each other as family.

The photo shoot was at Berry Hill Mansion and we just walked around the grounds and found gorgeous spots that were beautifully lit by the golden sun. We also decided that colors would work best as far as what to wear and Jennifer really pulled them together with the different shades. THAT is why I love fall! Colors!

Enjoy!

Meet Zoey, again (you can find her first senior session here) from Gretna High School!

We had to have a fall session and get shots of her with her hunting gear. Let me tell you this girl is fearless and knows her way around her hunting bow and riffle. Add a little plaid and boots into the mix and you have the right recipe for a gorgeous senior portrait!

We were so fortunate with the weather this day. There was a 70% chance of rain, but for some reason we still decided to move forward with the shoot, because the rain doesn’t scare us! Her brother who was visiting from out of town also jumped in a few shots and this made Mama very happy to have some pictures of the two together.

Enjoy!

Meet the Thomas Family!

Russel, Jodi, and Henry!

Wow! Fall portraits are just my favorite (and BUSIEST) time of year! You just can’t beat the color and the warm clothes that come with it. Speaking of clothes, Jodi sure knows how to put an assortment of outfits together. It’s funny because I told her she should totally become my stylist for Senior portraits. Henry always rocks the newest pair of Tom’s and I just LOVE it!

Enjoy!
