We all have our favorite moments at weddings.  Moments that make us tear up, moments that always make us laugh, moments that you never forget and moments that we wish we could capture forever.  That is the favorite part of my job, capturing all those special moments for you to hold onto.

I am so lucky to have these two in my life.  We call them Speed Racer’s adopted Grandparents.  They’re not Grandparents by blood but they have been an integral part of his life since he was born.  I have loved getting to know these two and being accepted as one of the family.

Leiah

I absolutely love when my job allows me to reconnect with old friends and coworkers!  I was thrilled when Heather contacted me (we used to work together) saying that she had just had her new baby girl and would love some family portraits.  We had so much fun and it was such a privileged to meet such a sweet baby girl.

Leiah was born premature so she is just a tiny little bundle of joy.  We did these photos just a couple weeks after she was born so she was still sleepy, tiny, and precious.

Leiah’s Dad, David, is in the Marines so we had fun doing a lot of different shots with his uniform.  Amazingly, the uniform survived without any accidents!

After talking with Heather and David, they let slip that they had never had portraits done of just the two of them, not to mention as a family.  So while Grandma and Grandpa took a shift feeding Leiah, we snuck off to do just a couple pictures of them.

Just as a side note: I am a huge fan of making sure you have couple portraits taken at many stages of life.  This isn’t just because it’s what I do, but because everyone needs some photographs that show the love that you feel for each other.  It reminds us of whats important and gives us a visual reminder when times are tough.

David and Heather radiate love not just for each other but for Leiah too.  You can tell they are going to be fabulous parents!  Congrats you two!  I can’t wait to see Leiah through each stage of life grow in the loving environment you have created for her.

Spring is in the air, which means, it’s Prom time again!  I was so excited and thrilled to be asked to photograph some before pictures for Claire’s Prom.  I love the Norman family (you may have heard me mention them a time or two) so any chance to get to hang out with them is a good time!

It’s hard to believe that this little guy used to be this little baby!  He’s growing up fast and he’s on the move.  I was so excited to go to my hometown for the weekend to photograph and hang out with Mr. and Mrs. Hokie (and baby Hokie).
