Alysia {class of ’09}

Alysia and I met up in CaryTown on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and got us some amazing shots! I love high school senior session. It’s a time in their lives that they can act like a super model, a rock star, do what ever they want and they will do what ever I want. Thanks for a fresh & fun afternoon! 

this is the winner in my eyes!!! DELISH!!!

And a few inside of the Historic Byrd Theater.

Monica + Cory were married on September 6th. Little Miss “Hanna the Hurricane” blew into town in the AM and when she blew away in the late PM leaving us with some amazing light and sky.  Monica + Cory were so relaxed, so much fun and are so in love! Monica you have yourself one fun loving hubby! See I know this because my hubby and I have known Cory for close to 4 years. So when he called to hire me to shoot his wedding I was over come with joy and honor! Oh and the best part I was ordered to have fun, like I don’t anyway when I shoot a wedding, but they wanted me to still be a guest. So after all the most important things were shot I loosened up, had a few beers and danced with my Hubby. Of course I have tons of faves so I made a few collages so I could post more pictures. And I just love how they tell a story. 

Thanks you two for a wonderful night! 


me and my hubby of 10 years, 9 months and 20 days.

Posh Belly Boutique

Posh Belly Boutique is one of the most stylish, posh and adorable maternity stores that just opened her doors in Richmond. Owners Mindy and Beth are two amazing & fun loving women, and guess what?  They asked me if I would decorate their walls with my work!!!! I am so honored and greatly appreciate how much they love my work. Every time I walk out of the store my head won’t fit through the door. See being a photographer/artist we are our own worst critics. This opportunity has made me love what I do even more! It is so cool to see my work on walls other than my own. Mindy and Beth held an open house last Friday and of course I had to go and shoot. All you PG women out there in need of some POSH maternity wear, this is the store for you!  

First things first just some of my work. I have more on the way to be hung. Giving a shout out to all the women, baby’s and daddy’s in my images for helping me make this possible. (you know who you are)

this is a 36 x24 canvas! 

Just a few 5×7’s.. 

Behind the counter…

Beth & Mindy –  don’t you just love their logo? Mindy’s husband Mike takes all the credit.

All the cute details of the store. I so love the crystal chandelier. 

So what is an open house with yummy food? Nothing. Beth’s husband Kenneth owns Anything Goes cafe & catering company and had some delish treats.  804.399.6168 – kennyeats@aol.com

Again thank you Beth and Mindy!!!

You all might remember that this past spring I had a chance to photograph Miss Southeastern Virginia’s Outstanding Teen, Miranda Harrison. It was a great day and we took tons of pictures, and it has led me to future opportunities. This week I have been asked to be the official photographer for the Miss Piedmont Region Scholarship Program. It is a Miss Virginia local and the director is a good friend of mine. I will be there taking photos of all of the contestants this February. It should be a very fun and busy day, but I really look forward to seeing how creative I can get. The winner from Miss Piedmont Region will get a photo shoot with me and she will compete for Miss Virginia in June 2009! She may even be Miss America one day! The people you meet doing this job!  I can’t post with out a picture, so here is one from Miranda’s session. See how much fun you can have with a crown!
