Families & Kids

Spring is here, and that means flowery family photos! The WV Capitol does such a beautiful job landscaping each year that it’s an annual favorite spot for sessions. It’s been a few years since I last did a session with this family, and these sweet kiddos had grown up so much in that time — I think their sibling shots are some of my favorites from this shoot.

Family » The Johnsons

Families & Kids

One of the very best parts of my job is the privilege of shooting the same families year after year and seeing how much kids change in the time between sessions. I’ve been doing annual photos with the Johnsons since 2015, and it blows my mind to remember how tiny Avery and Silas were back then.

Seniors » McKenzie, Class of 2023


Congrats to McKenzie, who’s graduating this month from South Charleston High School! We spent the first half of our session downtown on Capitol and Brawley, then moved up to the fields for a more rural vibe. As you can probably see from the photos, the rain threatened us the entire time we were shooting, but it managed to hold off until the moment we finished up!

Couples » Lacey & Jakob

Couples & Engagements

These two have been together for several years, and they were so sweet during their couples session the other day! We were under a high wind advisory that evening, so we had a few good laughs as we battled the elements to keep their hair and clothes in place. Despite that, it was a really fun and successful shoot. You really can’t beat a good field for romantic couples photos.

Couples » Shayla & Tim’s Engagement

Couples & Engagements

Valley Park in Hurricane was a perfect place to take these Spring engagement photos. Tim and Shayla are such a lovely couple and were so easy to work with, and I love the sweet images we were able to capture together. I know they’re going to have a happy future together!

Family & Maternity » The Tuptas

Families & Kids, Maternity

Ally is due with baby #2 in just a few short weeks! She and her sweet family were lovely to work with, and I’m still amused by their little one’s extremely serious expressions. We were lucky to catch some of the last bits of Fall color before that night’s rain knocked down most of the leaves, and I love the extra bit of sunset glow we captured in so many of our shots.

Events » Majestic Day Spa Grand Opening


Tam, whose family I’ve been photographing for years, has finally opened her new day spa in St. Albans, and she invited me out to take some promotional photos of its grand opening! The mayor of St. Albans and several other city officials came out to take part in the ribbon cutting and officially open the spa for business. Majestic offers a huge variety of beauty services, so there’s a little something for all. It was so exciting to see Tam’s dream becoming reality!
