Engagement sessions are so much fun! I love getting to know a couple and learn about their relationship and how their personalities mesh with one another. And this session with Shamra and Travis was especially fun because I already know Shamra and her personality, so it was nice to meet her fiance, Travis, and to see how they just click with one another. You can tell the two of them are just so much in love and ready to get married. Shamra and I are both Tri Sigmas from Longwood University. And although we attended college at different times and did not know one another while in school – she is much younger than me– having that bond of sisterhood just makes forming a friendship so much easier. I met Shamra several years ago while I was the advisor of the Lynchburg College chapter of Tri Sigmas, and she was a Sigma at Longwood. The Longwood girls came down to Lynchburg to help initiate the newest Sigma colony as a chapter. Facebook has allowed us to maintain a friendship since then! I was so happy that she chose me to be her photographer, and to help her capture all the special memories that go along with getting married! I am just so excited to show off these photos from the Engagement session. And I’m even more excited to be the photographer for their wedding in December! Enjoy!
I was thrilled to photograph Ashley last week in downtown Lynchburg. An LCA student, Ashley, wanted to have her senior photos taken downtown in a more urban setting. These days, more and more students are looking to have Senior portraits taken in a more unique environment, or more customized setting than offered through the “regular” school sponsored photography sessions. I love meeting students and customizing their Senior sessions to their unique personalities. It really makes for more of a fun session, and the final product is amazing – something no other student will have. I have so many favorites from Ashley’s session it was hard to choose just a few to showcase. I hope you enjoy!
A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure to photograph this sweet 2-year-old boy and his family in Appomattox, Va. It is so much fun to meet adorable children and chase them around with my camera for an evening! Meeting new people is just one reason I love what I do. And helping a family celebrate the birthday of their child with photographs that will last a lifetime is another reason my job has to be the greatest. This little guy loves Elmo and his Radio Flyer wagon, and he wasn’t going to let me leave without meeting his chickens. I had a blast at this family session, and am in love with some of these photos taken that evening. I hope you enjoy them too!
