Rieken Family | Lifestyle Family Sunrise Session | Richmond Family Photographer

It was a beautiful and quiet morning filled with lots of snuggles, flower picking, toe-dips into the water and shoulder rides. It was such an honor to be the one to give the Rieken family snapshots of sweet moments with their newer addition at the place they now call home.

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.

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.

Casey | In-Home Birth | Black and White Documentary Photography | Suffolk, Virginia

Casey | In-Home Birth | Black and White Documentary Photography | Suffolk, Virginia

I’m pretty sure that every photographer has a photography bucket list. Something on my list was to document a birth. In-home, hospital, didn’t care. Documentary photography is something i’m passionate about and what better way to experience that than with a birth. Birth photography is something that was new to me. I didn't know truly what to expect I just knew that being on call meant, at any time, anywhere, I’d have to stop what i’m doing, grab my packed up camera bag and haul my ass over. When I received the text that it was time, my adrenaline started pumping, I quickly took an exit on the interstate and made a U-turn to head to Suffolk.
