These two have been together for many years, and are engaged to be married this Fall! We had a good time shooting our field session, even though the sun was beating down on us and we left completely sweaty! Here are a few of my favorite shots.
Seniors » McKenzie, Class of 2023Seniors
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!
Children » Zinnia’s Alice in Wonderland SessionFamilies & Kids
Whimsical little sessions like this always make me so happy! Zinnia was such a cute little Alice and loved looking in the mirror and kissing the baby on the other side.
Couples » Lacey & JakobCouples & 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 EngagementCouples & 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 TuptasFamilies & 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 OpeningEvents
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!

Seniors » Lacey, Class of 2023Seniors
Say hello to Lacey, a senior at George Washington High School here in Charleston. We planned her session around sunset in a field, and we got some really nice autumn light and colors that really complemented her look!
Families » The JohnsonsFamilies & Kids
It was wonderful to see the Johnsons again for their annual Fall photos! This year’s set included the kids’ grandmother, as well, which I love to see. It’s always special to capture several generations of a family!
Babies » Toby’s 6-Month Milk BathFamilies & Kids
Toby’s mom wanted a bright and citrusy milk bath for his 6 month photos. This age is so fun and adorable since a lot of babies are beginning to sit up more, which means new poses! His big sis even got in on the fun when he was finished. 😊
For more fruit bath photos, check out my strawberry tub session from a few years back. I’m always game for more of these shoots — they’re just too sweet!
