Retired!! - Teacher Portrait Session - Virginia Photographer

When Denise contacted me and said she was interested in a Celebration of Retirement Portrait shoot I got excited!! It sounded like fun and I knew I could do a good job. It was key not to make it cheesy. We wanted a little tongue in cheek but also just some beautiful portraits of her celebrating her profession and show the excitement of what is to come!

I commend Denise on making the extra effort. She brought multiple outfits, got apples and fixed up her classroom nicely. She got professional, hot rolled her hair and made sure her nails looked nice. Those extra efforts helped make this portrait turn out perfect! Her makeup looks very natural, but look at those eyes pop! That is what professional makeup does. AND my word… she brought a legit crown!! I was so happy to see she has a fantastic crown!! I so enjoyed working with Denise and will always remember this photoshoot!

If there is a life moment you want to celebrate I hope seeing her session gives you the courage to do just that! Celebrate you in portraits! They will last forever and she will be able to pass them on to her children..AND it was a really fun time!

Ashton - JMU Class of 2019 - College Graduation Session

Ashton got the first of two degrees from JMU this year. She got her degree in Dance and next year she will get another in Health Sciences with one or two minors (I believe). She asked me to come up and take some pictures of her on the Quad. We started with lunch downtown first. What a beautiful downtown area and campus! I hadn’t been to this campus since I was in high school and I don't remember much about it. So pretty!

Bryce - Brookville High - Scenic farm with lake Senior Photoshoot, Lynchburg VA

It was a beautiful evening for Bryce’s senior portraits. We met at his family land where they spend time. It was perfect to photograph on. He did some fishing, caught a huge catfish and two other fish. Then we went to the Evington Volunteer Fire Department where he volunteers. It was a fantastic evening! Thank you Bryce for having me take your senior portraits.

Annie - Brookville High - Class of 2019/ Spring flowers Senior Session, Lynchburg VA

I am really enjoying these spring time sessions. The weather is perfect, not humid and the flowers are blooming! This may become my favorite time to shoot! Except the pollen of course. Annie and I went to the Old City Cemetery for her session. Always a beautiful location! We were surrounded by gorgeous flowers. Not a bad way to spend an evening.
