First Birthday and Family Session! | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

There’s nothing sweeter than getting to watch my littlest clients grow up! All these precious newborns who are now toddlers, but still have the same expressions they did when they were brand new. It always amazes me how fast they grow.

I love getting to catch up with parents and document the first birthday. There’s lot of ways to capture this milestone, and sometimes that just looks like an outdoor mini session! Check out this gorgeous little redhead and her smitten Mom and Dad. :)

A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.
— Agatha Christie

Although I’m done taking on sessions for 2018, I am currently booking into Spring/Summer of 2019. My weekend dates are always the first to go, so reach out soon if you have a date in mind! If you’re new here, I specialize in maternity, family and lifestyle newborn sessions.

Send me a quick email and let’s get your 2019 session on the books!



First Birthday Fun! | Virginia Beach Child Photographer

Oh man, it's crazy how time flies. Working with and photographing families is a great reminder how how FAST a year can pass. I mean, once you have a baby, it's like time blasts off at a rocket pace and you just can't slow it down. Babies don't keep - SO true! I am always so honored when I can watch these babies grow, exhaust and amaze their parents, learn new things and charm me each time.

Last year, I met this gorgeous family and you can view their newborn session HERE. Kara adores the color teal as much as I do (okay, she might adore it more, ha!) and I loved how she incorporated some balloons to celebrate Marcos' first birthday. He'll be enjoying a cake smash with family this week, so we kept it simple (and cleaner) since it was about 97 degrees outside. You can't even tell though, these three were so cool. :)

Marcos has gotten SO big and had the sweetest, shy little smirks. He's totally into waving, cuddling and smiling with those two little bottom teeth!
