Aria: Fresh 48 | Winchester, Virginia Hospital Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Aria joined two older sisters and an amazing set of parents in December. Her mom is a fellow photographer and amazingly talented at it. She took my maternity photos 6 years ago! I was so excited when she asked me to take Fresh 48 photos when Aria was born. From her curly hair to her little socked feet, Aria is perfect. I hope Jessica and the family will cherish these forever.

The Binter Family | Front Royal, Virginia Family Photographer

The Binter family holds such a special place in my heart. We became friends after we moved a few houses down from each other. Fast forward 6 years later. We have supported each other, laughed together, gone months without talking only to pick up right where we left off (life, you know?). When she approached me about family photos I wanted nothing more than to give her images that would evoke emotions. Images that she would want to print huge and put above her mantel. Images she couldn’t wait to share with her family back in England.

Kareen and Joey – thank you for always being there for me! I hope that you can feel the same towards me.

The Whited Family | Winchester, Virginia Family Photographer

Watching little Deni grow into an adorable toddler has been such a pleasure! I first took this family’s photos when she was just 3 months old. I love repeat clients. We decided to make a change from our last session and take it to Downtown Winchester. Christmastime downtown has a lot of beauty to offer (and everyone LOVES the red door!). I hope I have the opportunity to photograph them again in the future!:)

Mommy Instincts: Personal Post | Front Royal, Va Children Photographer

It took three years. Three years of doctor appointments, being told it was allergies, a stuffy nose. My claws came out and I finally complained. I demanded a referral. I had an audio recording of Jack going up to 30 seconds without breathing while he slept. He never knew how to blow his nose. It was because he physically couldn’t.  My mommy instincts told me that he needed surgery at the age of three. Unfortunately I didn’t find my “roar” until more recently.

Our visit to the ENT went perfectly. He agreed with me. Finally. Jack had apnea due to obstruction and surgery was scheduled for the same month.

We had Jack pumped up with the reminder that his big brother had the same surgery two years prior. This is almost a rite of passage in our family. At the age of 5 one must have his adenoids and tonsils removed (Lane, you have 2.5 years, bud).;)

The nurses and doctors were so kind. The surgery was done in less than 30 minutes. Jack came back into the room breathing through his nose for the first time. He was severely agitated when he returned, which we would soon find out his overreaction was due to his spectrum disorder (another mommy instinct). Soon enough he had calmed down, eaten some popsicles, laced his shoes, and we were on our way home!

Advocate for your children. They need us to be their voice while they are still learning.

Matt and Heather: Engaged | Winchester, Virginia Engagement Photographer

Heather and I go way back. Way WAY back. She was the one I rested my head upon as I received my epidural during the birth of my first child, just four weeks after the birth of her first child. We have watched each other grow as mothers and into women. We have witnessed heartache, love, marriage, divorce, more births, more love. When Heather and Matt got together I could tell there was a special sparkle in her eye that was never there before. She found her love. It was a beautiful thing to see. Together they make a beautiful couple and together have a beautiful family.

For their engagement photos we decided to take advantage of all that Downtown Winchester has to offer in the fall. It was a beautiful crisp day. I will be sharing their wedding photos soon!
