{ Colley Family }

Today I travelled to Jekyll Island with a good friend from high school. We had a blast on the drive to the island catching up on the "gossip" which was accompanied by lots of laughter. Our first stop was Driftwood Beach, but we were ran off by the swarms of ticks....YUCK!! We found the perfect spot on the side of the road. Another beautiful family, makes my job look easy. Enjoy your sneak peek :)

{ Johns Family }

When you work with such a beautiful family as this one, how can you go wrong? I'm so glad we worked out our schedules to get together for this shoot. I was more than THRILLED by the results, and I hope they are just as thrilled with them too. I had a hard time picking my favs for the blog. Enjoy your sneak peek. (Remember, the images will be edited with my software once I get back to VA and my computer.)

{ Riley turns 2 }

Happy Birthday to a sweet little girl!!! Riley turned 2 today and I had the pleasure of taking her birthday pictures. Here is your sneak peek!

{ down on the farm }

Today we had an awesome shoot at the farm. (thanks to my good friend Christy) This family was a pleasure to work with. Mom and I graduated high school together (we won't say how long ago that was). These kiddos were so well-behaved and very cooperative, which is a photographers DREAM. Here is your sneak peek :)

{ Woolard Family }

Yesterday morning was spent with the Woolards. I've know mom since she was born so she's pretty much like family. These pictures are SOOC (straight out of camera, for you non-photogs) so there hasn't been any editing done....that will have to wait until I get back to my computer in VA. Hope you like....

{ FAMILY: the best thing since sliced bread }

I spent my Thanksgiving morning with this WONDERFUL family. I've know these guys all of my life and it truly was a pleasure for me to capture their memories. I wanted to give them a sneak peek, but since I'm visting my family in GA, I do not have my editing software. Just keep in mind these images will be edited once I get back to VA.

{ a great day for the park }

I met the Fletter family today at Red Wing Park. We had a blast. These kids are so much fun to be around and very well-behaved :) They are getting ready to make a big HAWAII! I am sad to see them go, but I know they will enjoy every minute at their new duty station. Hope you like your sneak peak!

{ don't let the sun go down }

I had the joy of meeting this beautiful family at the beach again today. Our first shoot was cut short due to the quickly setting sun. We rescheduled and today it was MAGIC. Here's your sneak peak.....
