Winchester VA Photographer | Molly | Mini Session

Hello again, friends. As you may have been following, this is continuation of the updates I promised for photo book that I'm working on. Now, I won't post from every session that I have with these fabulous ladies, but I will post as much as humanly possible. If you don't know what I'm talking about, my previous blog post talks about it. Keep a look out because once I've chosen my final book cover, I will post the details of the book, information about how to order one when it's completed, and about my solo exhibition soon to come this September!

Once again, in the meantime, please enjoy this mini session with this wonderful and beautiful woman, Molly! I have known her since grade school and she's blossomed into quite an inspiring person.

"We shall pass through this world but once; therefore, any good thing I can do for any living being, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again."

Winchester VA Photographer | What to Expect When You Hire Me

Winchester VA Photographer | What to Expect When You Hire Me

hello. this is me.

hello. this is me.

Have you worked with me before? Well, if you haven't and you're thinking of hiring me, I want to take the time to go over what to expect during and after our photo session.

There are two primary sources that I use for my portfolio and advertising, the website that you're currently on and Facebook. My website is the best source to view my work and where you can get a good sense of my style. On my website, you will find my most recent work, an excerpt about myself, my blog, and all of my prices and packages. This is a great start in your process when inquiring about hiring me. On Facebook, that's where I make all of my announcements and share all of my blog posts. This is where you can find all of my old work, but I do not post full galleries on there because my website gives better quality and capabilities.

Next is how to contact me! Under my tab "Investment", there's a contact form where you can fill out your inquiry, your name, and email. I will get in touch with you within 48 hours! My business number is also posted on the page and you may text or call me as well if that is something you prefer. When I get back in touch with you, I will offer a free consultation over coffee to meet with you! I believe that it is best to meet with each other in person so that we can get a sense of each other's personalities and get to know each other. This way, we will know if we're a good fit.

Great! Now that we've met or discussed your goals and mine, what is going to happen during our session? I like to make all photo sessions as stress free as possible. Each photo shoot has a unique experience! We may grab coffee beforehand because...well, coffee is absolutely wonderful. I may play some 90s classics during our session (gotta love the 90s). I'll tell jokes, share stories; it'll be just like spending time with a friend. This doesn't mean that I don't take my job seriously. The beautiful part about being a photographer is that your job is challenging and serious work, but it's also a lot of fun. Doing these things are not a distraction to me but it helps both of us get into the groove of things and create natural shots. There will be some business formalities that will take place to finalize our session, but 98% of the session with be fun.
I promise. :)

For portrait sessions, all final products will be delivered to you within two weeks. For weddings, all final products will delivered to you within 30 days. I don't like to rush through the editing process. Every session is very important to me and I devote all of my time to your session before taking on another job. During this time, I edit your images, review them, add finishing touches, create personalized gifts, print in-house, cut them down to size by hand, prepare all final documents, then gather all materials to ship them to you! It's a lot of work and I love every minute of it. Seeing your final product is equally as exciting for both of us!

 I love seeing my work completed, knowing I did all of it by hand with a personal touch. I love the anticipation of your final product getting to you and hearing of your reaction. This isn't a hobby for me and it's not just a job. This is my life and my passion. I take it very seriously and professionally, all while enjoying every moment. I hope this gave you a good idea of what to expect when you hire me. I truly hope to work with any of you in the future!

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!
