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 | 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 | 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!
