Nicole + Jack | Mommy and Me Session | The Meadows Frozen Custard | Colonial Williamsburg | Hampton Roads Lifestyle Photographer

I’m so excited to share this fun session of Nicole and Jack. Nicole reached out to me and said she wanted to a have a session with just her and her son, Jack. I asked her to talk about Jack before our session and I was told he was sweet and kind, loved ice cream and they love hanging out together. To make the session about their bond and the things they enjoy together, we began their session at The Meadows Frozen Custard in Williamsburg. Nicole shared how much Jack enjoys paying for the ice cream when they go out and those were the small but honest moments she wanted documented. I can’t tell you enough how much of an actual sweetheart Jack is and was during the entire session. They ate ice cream, laughed and snuggled on the front steps of the ice cream shop. When we got to our second location in Colonial Williamsburg, Jack noticed a park and really wanted to play so we let him lead the way. The great thing about a session that is a mix of documentary is that the children guide. This is so helpful in making it an enjoyable experience for them which will also make it stress-free for you. Let them run, let them play, i’m here to capture the honest love and personality of your family.

As the sun began to set, outfits were changed and we entered Colonial Williamsburg for the second half of the session. I loved meeting and getting to know Nicole and Jack. Their bond is strong and love is sweet. Capturing memories was so important to Nicole and that we did.

Sunset Anniversary Beach Session | Anne + Johnny | Virginia Beach Oceanfront | Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

Know what I love more than seeing you on your wedding day? Getting the honor to see you time and time after the big day! I photographed Anne and Johnny’s wedding last year at the Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club, photographed their family last summer and this past week got to photograph them for their anniversary. EEEE!! It makes me SO SO SO happy to be a part of capturing Anne and Johnny’s milestones.

Before their wedding day, Anne told me presence meant more than portraits to her. On the wedding day instead of blocking off time for couples portraits, Anne and Johnny joined their friends and family for cocktail hour. This anniversary session was the perfect way to photograph them, together, married. Anne wore her wedding gown, made herself a bouquet and Johnny rocked some of his suit. This time they were joined by their newest family member, Carl.

The weather, evening and getting to hang out with this sweet couple was perfection. I’d love to see more anniversary sessions happening. What a sweet way to celebrate together!! Grab the champagne and let’s run on the beach!
