Winchester VA Photographer | Lilly, "the looking glass"

Winchester VA Photographer | Lilly, "the looking glass"

Last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a dear old friend of mine. Lilly and I were best friends in middle school and we haven't seen each other in eight years! A lot can change in eight years and while our lives are different now, catching up and laughing about the past felt the same. The most beautiful thing about this experience is that now we've reconnected as friends and will definitely see each other more in the future. That's another thing about my book that I love. It has given me the opportunity to sit down with old friends, catch up, and reconnect - but also seeing how beautiful my friend's are.

While I knew Lilly when we were preteens, I got to meet a version of Lilly that I've never known - a wife and a mother. She's still the same person, but now her life revolves around the people that are so near and dear to her. I met her precious daughter, Vivian, and I can see why! The love between them was a sight to see and I'm so proud of my friend. As always, I can't wait for you to hear her story in my book that will be available in two weeks! <3  

Being a mother is the best thing that ever happened to me. I love being someone’s everything.

Winchester VA Photographer | Hannah | Senior Portraits

Graduate: Hannah Coffey
Photo Shoot Location: The Woods Resort in Hedgesville, WV
Graduation Date: 05.27.15
 

This little chickadee has blossomed into quite the young woman. I grew up with her older sister as best friends and I quickly merged into their wonderful family - that was twelve years ago. Now, here she is, graduating from high school and moving on to go to WVU to study psychology. It blows my mind how quickly time passes. She's had quite the year and nothing is slowing her down. Needless to say, I'm very proud of her and wish her all the best. I know her family is just as proud as I am and are excited to see her through the next part of her journey in life.

Congratulations Hannah!!

Winchester VA Photographer | Prom in Hedgesville, WV

Winchester VA Photographer | Prom in Hedgesville, WV

It was a perfect cloudy day when I met with these anxious teens in Hedgesville, WV to photograph their gorgeous dresses and tuxedos before their senior prom. We were outside for an hour and a half to capture their moments together and about 60 seconds after leaving the location, it poured! Talk about luck! Granted, it was a little chilly but it was worth it. 

This was a nostalgic session for me. I'm sure you all remember your senior prom. My senior prom date was a good friend of mine and I had the most amazing dress I have ever owned. It was black and white, floor length, with a braided strapless top. We met with a big group of people to go out to dinner and danced the night away 'til the very end. Seeing how excited they were, how much fun they were having, reminded me of all of this! They were a really fun group. There were several moments when they couldn't hold a pose because they were laughing so hard - which was very contagious. :)

Another reason why this season was so nostalgic for me is because it reminded me why I got into this business. My passion for photography originated in sixth grade when I was just twelve years old. At a young age, I realized how important it is to capture and cherish all memories through photographs. Mental memories are wonderful but physically seeing them on screen or prints lasts so much longer! You can look back and be reminded of someone or of a moment at any time. We didn't have fancy cameras or video cameras growing up and I wish we did! I envy those that have home videos or a photographer that photographed their 1st birthday. I hope these girls and boys look back 10, 20, and 30 years down the road and are so touched that they were able to have these memories captured!

It was my privilege and honor to photograph this bundle of joy. She had so much fun during our session and I can't wait to photograph her more in the future! We played with bubbles, sticks, and a little chalk - not to mention a little confetti! Bristol is three years old and will be four this year. She loves her mother to pieces and it really showed. They ran around, giggled, had tickle fights, and many hugs were given. I was a mother's girl myself growing up, so I always love watching a relationship grow between a mother and daughter. It's one of the most important relationships in life, so cherish it as long as you can! Here are some images from our little session!

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog!
