Whistleman Family

I’m convinced the Whistleman boys wake up with sneakers on because surely they hit the ground mid-sprint each morning. What a pleasure it was to meet up with these two fast-paced bundles of energy…and the parents that keep up with them(!) for a family mini-session on Storybook Trail. The sun was low in the sky and kept saying good night as our session continued. But I managed to get some shots and a decent workout. Successful evening.bsomeIMG_7378 bsomeIMG_7390c bsomeIMG_7534 bsomeIMG_7482 bsomeIMG_7536 bsomeIMG_7498 bsomeIMG_7455 bsomeIMG_7426 bsomeIMG_7469 bsomeIMG_7477bw

Sydney & Alison {mini}

It took all of about five clicks of my shutter for these two sisters to get used to me and my camera. As the session went on, they became more and more comfortable being their silly self in front of me. So many giggles echoing through the branches. What fun it was to watch their unique personalities shine through! bsomeIMG_9395 bsomeIMG_9398 bsomeIMG_9400bw bsomeIMG_9402 bsomeIMG_9404 bsomeIMG_9411 bsomeIMG_9413 bsomeIMG_9415bwbsomeIMG_9419 bsomeIMG_9424 bsomeIMG_9408 bsomeIMG_9426 bsomeIMG_9427bsomeIMG_9435bw bsomeIMG_9436 bsomeIMG_9428 bsomeIMG_9442 bsomeIMG_9446 bsomeIMG_9456bsomeIMG_9459c bsomeIMG_9461bw bsomeIMG_9464 bsomeIMG_9468bw bsomeIMG_9470 bsomeIMG_9471bw bsomeIMG_9466bsomeIMG_9477 bsomeIMG_9490 bsomeIMG_9492 bsomeIMG_9496bw bsomeIMG_9498bw bsomeIMG_9501bw bsomeIMG_9510bw bsomeIMG_9505 bsomeIMG_9507bw bsomeIMG_9512

Lucas Family {mini}

Just because the Lucas Family owns and man-handles their own amazing coffee business, doesn’t mean they’re all jacked up on caffeine all the time. And just because you have a slight case of a.d.d. after hanging out with them for an afternoon, doesn’t mean the smell of bean juice oozing from their being gave you a coffee buzz. But…one might think this is the case. That’s because those Lucas’s are dang inspiring: building a life from the ground up, raising two amazing boys, maintaining a loving marriage, juggling priorities and taking the time out of all that to support this local photog and smile for some pic-chas! Support ’em back, go buy their coffee!bsomeIMG_8263 bsomeIMG_8260bw bsomeIMG_8262cbsomeIMG_8266bw bsomeIMG_8280bw bsomeIMG_8282bsomeIMG_8297 bsomeIMG_8289bwbsomeIMG_8308 bsomeIMG_8319 bsomeIMG_8321 bsomeIMG_8324bw bsomeIMG_8328bsomeIMG_8337bw bsomeIMG_8338 bsomeIMG_8339 bsomeIMG_8343 bsomeIMG_8346bw bsomeIMG_8340bwbsomeIMG_8399 bsomeIMG_8403 bsomeIMG_8366 bsomeIMG_8363 bsomeIMG_8380c bsomeIMG_8381c bsomeIMG_8377bsomeIMG_8258bw bsomeIMG_8393 bsomeIMG_8394bsomeIMG_8424bw bsomeIMG_8428bw bsomeIMG_8430 bsomeIMG_8432bwbsomeIMG_8465 bsomeIMG_8460bw bsomeIMG_8439

Heather & Brian {mini}

Heather and Brian dropped in my studio on a cool, fall, Saturday afternoon for a short and sweet couples session. It didn’t take long for us to fall into the comfort zone and get to snapping. Their genuine nature is simply comforting and I truly enjoy their company, for photos and otherwise.

Rascal {mini}

So there I was in Classic Tuxedo, picking up a bow tie…for a dog. Don’t mind me. I was pumped to do my first puppy session. Especially with a pup I’m so fond of. Especially with a pup in a bow tie! What?! When I got back into my car to drive to my studio all I could do was think of puppy puns (and crack myself up). Here goes: Pupxedo. Dress to the K-9’s. Bow-wow Tie. Furmal Session. Dog Photog-RUF-y. Ok ok…that’s as far as I got. It was a short drive. Feel free to leave your punny thoughts in the comment section.
Meet Rascal: He’s…a little rascal. And as sweet as can be.

Marker Family

Six months ago, Baby Beckett was my first ever newborn model. The time moves quickly and suddenly here it is fall and Beckett is a whopping six months old! I met him and his mommies at the park for an evening shoot. Beckett was all squished up and napping the way babies do when we started so we let the pups do the baby-sitting while I snagged a few shots of Kelsey and Megan. Beckett joined us and his brotherly connection with their pugs is dang adorable. I just can’t get enough of Beckett’s expressions and personality. Look out world. This kid knows what’s up.bsomeIMG_5240bw bsomeIMG_5249 bsomeIMG_5247bsomeIMG_5253 bsomeIMG_5244bwbsomeIMG_5266bsomeIMG_5262 bsomeIMG_5255bsomeIMG_5309 bsomeIMG_5300 bsomeIMG_5283bw bsomeIMG_5285bw bsomeIMG_5296bsomeIMG_5314bsomeIMG_5317 bsomeIMG_5313bw bsomeIMG_5305bsomeIMG_5522 bsomeIMG_5330bwbsomeIMG_5347bwbsomeIMG_5383bw bsomeIMG_5375 bsomeIMG_5367bsomeIMG_5409 bsomeIMG_5401bw bsomeIMG_5428bwbsomeIMG_5432bsomeIMG_5436bw bsomeIMG_5437 bsomeIMG_5439bsomeIMG_5455 bsomeIMG_5454bw bsomeIMG_5465 bsomeIMG_5493bsomeIMG_5483 bsomeIMG_5484 bsomeIMG_5485 bsomeIMG_5498bsomeIMG_5508

Troxell Family

The first time I met Lisa was at the Swannanoa Palace where I photographed her fun-loving family. On this particular Sunday afternoon, we met in Staunton so I could get some shots of her husband’s side of the family. These two are so fun to work with and I love any chance to meet more and more of their family! They are a genuine, kind, good humored group of people. What more could you ask for? Below are some of my favorites from that 80 degree October fall day.bsomeIMG_4527 bsomeIMG_4542 bsomeIMG_4547 bsomeIMG_4550bsomeIMG_4544 bsomeIMG_4573 bsomeIMG_4576bsomeIMG_4578 bsomeIMG_4583 bsomeIMG_4584bwbsomeIMG_4598bw bsomeIMG_4635 bsomeIMG_4624 bsomeIMG_4703bsomeIMG_4719 bsomeIMG_4706 bsomeIMG_4729bwbsomeIMG_4728bwSMALLtroxellCOLOR055bsomeIMG_4778 bsomeIMG_4785 bsomeIMG_4799bwSMALLtroxellBW40bsomeIMG_4783bsomeIMG_4793 bsomeIMG_4788
