Hi! Thanks for stopping by the blog. I'm a portrait and lifestyle photographer in the Hampton Roads area of VA. I absolutely love photographing families, couples, children, and newborns.

My Family Friday...

We should probably start off with some introductions...

Meet my eldest, Trey...

Trey is pretty much your stereotypical first child... competitive, yet thoughtful, a perfectionist, kinda high-strung. He is a happy boy and a sweet boy with a good, good heart... However, he has a propensity for whining that makes me go a little batty. Here he is, happily showing me his moves (I think he was singing... "Dontcha wish ya girlfriend was hot like me..."). I made him stop throwing the ball outside to take a few pictures. He rolled his eyes, moved into the good light (he's a photog's kid) and started dancing and singing like a madman... for five seconds... then said, "I'm Done." And picked up the ball again. It can't be easy growing up with a photographer as a parent.

And the baby, Noah...

Noah is the antithesis of Trey. He is impulsive, loud, and a raging dare-devil. His favorite phrase is, "ME DO!" As in, me-do everything... I don't need your stinkin' help walking down this huge flight of very steep stairs... "ME DO!" He is the reason years have been shaved off my life... For instance, this morning... I ran upstairs to get Trey's socks and by the time I came back down, Noah had put his little red plastic chair ON the couch and was sitting on it. {!!!} Heart attack!

Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend planned! The weather here in Eastern VA is supposed to be gorgeous! I've got several two shoots coming up and a even a little something for my own family :) So sneak peeks coming soon !

Until next time,

The Stars Aligned... | Hampton Family Photography

I don't think I can count on one hand how many times this family and I had to reschedule our shoot. Weather, weather, weather, sick kid, weather, weather... So finally... this week the weather channel's website professed a whole week of sunny days. She and I called each other and vowed to get this shoot in.

We talked on the phone yesterday afternoon, made a last-minute reschedule for this afternoon... and then joked about some crazy freak-snowstorm coming to VA... hahahaha... so totally not funny. I did a little secret good-weather dance last night... Yes, really. I'm that sick of rescheduling shoots...

Anyway, enough babble from the camera lady...

First, meet 'A'...

'A' and I had met once previously... and he was an absolute ball of energy. Tonight, however, he was much more reserved and into mommy and daddy. Might have had something to do with the weird lady with the big-black-box in front of her face making silly faces and funny noises. I would have been hesitant of me too at that age...

It took a few minutes, but he eventually warmed up to me... However, I certainly can't take all the credit. Mom and Dad did a great job of talking and playing too! That's the key! Play!

I really love this shot. It may very well be my favorite thus far. It's that thing we mommy's have...that absolute NEED to nuzzle our children and take in their scent and just be near them. I love it. The grain. The expression. Love love love.

Here's mommy (Beth) and 'A'... See there, he's picking flowers for her. Boys rule.

...and Daddy (Patrick) and 'A'... I love this one too.

...and the whole family... and can I just say... doesn't dad look like Anthony Edwards?! Whoa... it's really striking in this image... :) Cool!

Beth, it worked out! The stars aligned and, though the guy on the golf-cart was kicking us out of the park as the light fell.... and we had to shoot around moms with strollers, joggers, and a gaggle of tween-age kids... it was a fantastic afternoon!

Thanks guys for so much patience and for being so great. More in your gallery soon!

Until next time,
