Katie has always been a big fan of shopping, so when Frank smoothly asked her to help him go shopping to decorate his new house, Katie was more than happy to oblige. Frank quickly stole Katie’s heart, and it soon became clear that they made a great team! Katie professed, “Our time together is full of laughter, and I can’t wait to spend forever with him!”
These two laughed throughout their whole engagement session together! At the beginning of our shoot, Frank, who has a great love for dogs, had mentioned wanting to go pet a dog that he saw down the beach. Towards the end our session, a dog ran up to Katie and Frank, gave them both kisses, stopped to pose, and smiled for the camera!!! Funniest photobomb ever!!

Love when families vacationing in Sandbridge, Virginia Beach, contact me for an extended family session! The Ellsworth Family came all the way from Western Pennsylvania and Northeast Ohio to have their family vacation at Sandbridge Beach for the second year in a row, after 18 years of vacationing in the Outer Banks. Such an honor to capture these fun and wonderful memories!!
Sweet baby Brynn’s parents started their journey in not the most typical romantic environment. They like to tell people that they met in jail, and then usually get some pretty stunned looks and are asked for more details!! Jacqueline and Cody actually met at the Norfolk City jail where they both worked; Jacqueline as a nurse, and Cody as a police officer.
“We joke and say that we are the typical American family – a cop and a nurse!” Jacqueline shared. Cody was born and raised in Virginia, while Jacqueline is originally from Germany and moved to the States when she was 12. Jacqueline enlisted in the Army Reserves, which brought her to Virginia Beach. Check out the special poses of newborn Brynn with her daddy’s police cap and mommy’s uniform and dog tags!
Tiny Brynn kept her parents on their toes the whole pregnancy with small hiccups here and there, and decided to make her entrance into the world three weeks early! Brynn was what is called “Frank breech” inside her mommy’s womb, so her little legs stuck straight up in front of her body with her feet near her head. During her session, Brynn’s sweet legs decided they were most comfortable sticking straight out, sometimes right up in the air, even while completely relaxed and asleep! 🙂 Also check out the insanely cute little pout that Brynn puts on while her mommy was holding her! Too precious!!

Little Captain Colton is ONE! What a fun time it has been, and what an honor it was to capture sweet Colton so many times in the past year. Jen & Jason made sure to get portraits of their little boy every season of his first year! I know from experience that time flies by so fast, especially that first precious year of life!
The Campbells had their engagement, trash the dress, and maternity photos done at Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia Beach, so it was only fitting that they chose this location to share with Mr. Colton! Even with a missed afternoon nap, Colton observed his surroundings with awe, held his little feet up in the air so they wouldn’t touch the grass, and talked to and waved to the birds. See how much this little dude has changed from his sleepy snoozes in his treasure box at his newborn session here: Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Colton | Newborn Session | VA Beach Newborn Photographer

What a magical day it was for Chelsea & John!!! Ever since Chelsea was a very little girl, she has had a special love for everything Disney! Her Aunt Lana shared during her toast that Chelsea’s first words were, “Mick-ey Mouse!” Chelsea was also a Christmas baby being born on Christmas Eve, so it only makes sense that the theme of her wedding would be a Disney Christmas!! I couldn’t imagine a more special day for such an incredibly positive and loving couple, because…
“When you wish upon a star; Makes no difference who you are; Anything your heart desires; Will come to you…” ❤
Make sure to check out all of the Disney Christmas details throughout the wedding, especially Chelsea’s Prince Charming John putting on her red heels! The “glass slipper” fit!!! So happy that Chelsea & John are finally hitched and they can start their happily ever after!
Chelsea and John had a full Catholic mass ceremony at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church, and a beautiful formal reception at the Founders Inn & Spa. An immense amount of appreciation for Alison Townsend Photography for filling in at the last minute as an amazingly talented second shooter (especially for the gorgeous ring shots)!
