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

Hughes Family

I met the Hughes’ in Dayton one evening to take some photos of their sweet little family. In the distance was a dark skyline creeping up quickly and the farther we drove toward it, the more uneasy I felt. We decided to make a last minute decision and head back to their Harrisonburg home…you know, incase the sky broke open on top of us. Luckily, their backyard is absolutely gorgeous. Green and lush and free of power lines and cityscapes. Comfortable in their own element, the children let their personalities come pouring out. Go ahead and try to get through these photos without laughing. I dare ya.
