Shipp Family

Children, like living timelines, show us the ever-changing time. It has been pure joy documenting this family from before they were even a family. Now here they are with a home and a yard and a little boy who speaks sentences and asks curious questions and a sweet baby girl who is content to simply be in your company. What a wonderful nest they have created. This at-home session took place in Grottoes, Virginia.bsomeimg_1513 bsomeimg_1526 bsomeimg_1532 bsomeimg_1518 bsomeimg_1516 bsomeimg_1544 bsomeimg_1571 bsomeimg_1595 bsomeimg_1603 bsomeimg_1600 bsomeimg_1631 bsomeimg_1665 bsomeimg_1694 bsomeimg_1686bsomeimg_1701bsomeimg_1740bsomeimg_1778bsomeimg_1781bsomeimg_1767bsomeimg_1796bsomeimg_1815bsomeimg_1829bsomeimg_1840

Marker Family

It has been a joy photographing this family since their son was just a wee one, swaddled tightly in his blankie. All previous sessions have been before he could walk or talk and I’m certain this ball of energy is making up for lost time. On the evening of our shoot, he thought my camera was the most hilarious thing in all of life. Every click of the shutter brought on contagious giggles. I’ve watched him grow through my lens along with the love this family shares. And what a beautiful thing that is.

Leary Family

Any reason to see my friends, Brian and Reshella, is a good reason. But this time, the reason was a tiny human: chubby cheeks, chilly toes, bright eyes. Gah! They introduced me to their son Hudson as we hung out in his nursery (…really trying to hold back my “hanging at the crib” joke here). Evening light poured in through the windows and my children made googly eyes at Hudson from behind my lens. After our session we all went to Vito’s and ate our weight in pizza. On the way home I fantasized about a system where I would only do photo sessions in exchange for pizza. Or sometimes sushi…or Taste of Thai. Or pretty much just food in general. Make an offer.bsomeIMG_1780 bsomeIMG_1761bsomeIMG_1787bsomeIMG_1804bsomeIMG_1819bsomeIMG_1848bsomeIMG_1855bsomeIMG_1864bsomeIMG_1873bsomeIMG_1901bsomeIMG_1924bsomeIMG_1941bsomeIMG_1948bsomeIMG_1952bwbsomeIMG_1951bsomeIMG_1958bsomeIMG_1956bsomeIMG_1964bsomeIMG_1967bsomeIMG_1969bsomeIMG_1976bsomeIMG_1977bsomeIMG_2018bsomeIMG_1986bsomeIMG_1992bsomeIMG_1995bsomeIMG_1993bsomeIMG_1982bsomeIMG_1987

Ebersold Family

I met with Miranda, Chance and their son Graham at their home in Downtown, Harrisonburg for an at-home family session. The morning was crisp and cool and when I arrived, morning light poured through the stairwell window. It was a pleasure to photograph this beautiful, growing family just months before Graham becomes a big brother. Below are some of my favorites from our session.bsomeIMG_4044 bsomeIMG_4082 bsomeIMG_4083 bsomeIMG_4077 bsomeIMG_4093bsomeIMG_4033bwbsomeIMG_4115bsomeIMG_4144bsomeIMG_4139bsomeIMG_4131bsomeIMG_4166cbsomeIMG_4149bsomeIMG_4161bsomeIMG_4172bsomeIMG_4175bwbsomeIMG_4203bsomeIMG_4181bsomeIMG_4188bsomeIMG_4201bsomeIMG_4206bsomeIMG_4225bsomeIMG_4215bsomeIMG_4217bsomeIMG_4236bsomeIMG_4241

Godshall Family

The Godshall Family invited me to their home for a summer evening family session. And by ‘family’ I mean their son, two daughters, two dogs, new kitten, and two very-well-loved horses. Surely the grass was greener on this particular evening as golden light poured through flickering leaves of the trees. Below are a few of my favorite shots of this super sweet family.

Hughes Family

This at-home session was held at the Hughes new home in Rockingham County. Hilly country roads led me there on a humid Saturday morning and I was greeted warmly by a very vocal dog, chickens, rabbits, a blue-eyed cat and three sweet children. I’ve photographed Ashley and Bill many times before and I look forward to continuing this tradition. Their family just keeps getting better and better…and bigger!bsomeIMG_3765 bsomeIMG_3774 bsomeIMG_3788 bsomeIMG_3791 bsomeIMG_3794 bsomeIMG_3814 bsomeIMG_3800bsomeIMG_3821 bsomeIMG_3820bsomeIMG_3854 bsomeIMG_3835bsomeIMG_3841bsomeIMG_3843bsomeIMG_3845bsomeIMG_3871bsomeIMG_3878bsomeIMG_3880bsomeIMG_3881bsomeIMG_3889bsomeIMG_3893bsomeIMG_3905bsomeIMG_3910bsomeIMG_3916bsomeIMG_3917bsomeIMG_3920absomeIMG_3943bsomeIMG_3932bsomeIMG_3953bsomeIMG_3957bsomeIMG_3962bsomeIMG_3965bsomeIMG_3967bsomeIMG_3971bsomeIMG_3970
