Brendan & Ashton | A Cuddlebug & Dinosaur Kisses | Newborn Session | VA Beach Newborn Photograher

So, little Mr. 8-day-old Brendan was not feeling it at the beginning of our photo session… soiling all of our blankets one by one and staying awake for 3 hours!! We got a few very quick nakey shots, but decided that the only way we were going to be able to keep the little guy happy was to swaddle, bundle, and wrap his little cozy self up! Brendan is definitely a little cuddlebug who loves his mama already! Right at the end of his session, he relieved himself quite loudly, totally broke through his swaddle, and gave us all a “Peace out!” 

Big brother Ashton was very curious and sweet, nicknaming me “Mama man,” riding the antique wooden “choo-choo” train, playing with his favorite huge elephant (who also sleeps with him), and giving his little brother “dinosaur kisses!” He also easily recited most of his E.T. book out loud during our session. 🙂

Chelsea & John | Fairy Tales Do Come True | Hampton Roads Engagement Photographer

Once up on a time… there was a little girl named Chelsea who was a huge Disney fan. She always loved hearing stories about Cinderella waiting for her Prince Charming. Years later, Chelsea’s own Prince Charming didn’t exactly show up in shining armor, but over time John definitely proved to Chelsea that fairy tales really do come true…

Chelsea & John actually began as friends. They met in Santoro Residence Hall on the campus of Christopher Newport University almost 5 years ago. Chelsea gave John her number, and the two hung out as friends initially, until they eventually became more.  

It was John’s super sweet and romantic fairy tale proposal that truly swept Chelsea off her feet…

In Chelsea’s own words:

“So, both of our families were staying down at the oceanfront. My brother, his brother, and some of our guy friends came into our hotel room and gave me two envelopes. One was from all of our guy friends we had made throughout our relationship. The other envelope was the word ‘WILL’ and had everything he will do for me and how he’d always be there. Next, I went to put on the outfit that my mom had picked out for me. Then, the guys took me to the next stop where my friends who I’ve known since elementary school were there with again, two envelopes. One with letters from all the girls we met throughout our relationship, and the other said ‘YOU’ and it was everything about how I much I meant to him. Finally, we went upstairs to where all our family was and they had a note that said ‘MARRY,’ and they told me to walk outside. John was there! He bent down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!!”
A romantic little fairy tale, indeed! It was only fitting that I shot their engagement session on the campus of CNU where they met and began their relationship, as well as including a few Disney themed props down at the local historic Yorktown Beach
The two plan to be wed in December of next year. Can’t wait to capture them saying “I do” at their Disney themed wedding!!

Miss Grace Is ONE | A Lily & A Lollipop – First Birthday| VA Beach Family Photographer

What a sweeeet, sweet baby girl Miss Grace was at her FIRST birthday photo shoot!! The weather called for rain, but we attempted to take some indoor shots, and were so lucky to be able to take some outdoors and even on the gorgeous golf greens right outside (right before we ran from some showers)! 

Watch little Grace as she plays “he loves me, he loves me not” with a beautiful white lily, and then as she so adorably tries her very first lollipop!! The hardest thing about this session was picking which shots to use, because seriously Gracie was the most photogenic baby I’ve ever captured! 

Absolutely loved capturing such a sweet and special time for this family at Grace’s great uncle’s home in Virginia Beach. I know very well how exciting a time it is, especially for your first baby! 🙂

Szerokman Family | Beachcombing Cousins | VA Beach Family Photographer

I attempted to rewrite Maddie & Andrew’s mommy’s story of her kiddos and their sweet cousins, but then I realized that I loved it exactly the way it was written! Here goes… 🙂
“Maddie, Andrew, Anna and Emily are close cousins – though they don’t get to spend as much time together as they like with 6 states between them. When they get together, they have a good time!
Andrew being the only boy sometimes separates himself from the group and finds enjoyment in his Legos, though there are times he likes to participate in dress up play!
Maddie and Anna enjoy a fun board game, crafts, and dressing up their American Girl dolls.
Emily, though only 2, can hold her own and has become quite the expert on finding even the smallest piece of sea glass! !
A commonality among the four is that they all enjoy being at the beach. Having parents who spent so much of their childhood at the beach, it was bound to happen!”
These cousins really are the sweetest!! They really enjoyed combing Chick’s Beach under the Lynnhaven Fishing Pier for seashells and sea glass, giving the wooden pier big hugs, and jumping and splashing on the water’s edge!

Tyler Family | Enjoying Every Season | VA Beach Family Photographer

Well, I certainly snapped, snapped, snapped away at the Tyler family session, as we tried to sneak in our long-awaited session before a summer storm rolled in and drenched us, the Virginia Beach sands, and Amanda’s cute green bench! So glad I was able to (quickly) capture this great friend of mine and her sweet kiddos (and a couple cousins) at their favorite beach spot! 
Mom, Amanda, said about her family, “We have so much fun and don’t want for anything!” They enjoy EVERY season of childhood. Amanda explained that she is never ready for a season to end, and every season is better than the last! They grow together as a family, and help each other grow in each season they are in. The Tyler family loves to travel to new places, and they all love sports of any kind, but especially football and wrestling right now. 
The oldest, Jacob, 15, has the kindest, most genuine heart. He is a beast in sports, and is usually a leader on his sports teams. He works hard at everything he does. He takes great care of his mother. When he is not busy with sports or school, he spends hours practicing his electric guitar.
Amanda’s second, David, 13, is wise beyond his years, and he is a natural leader. He was born with a drive and focus that most adults don’t have! He excels in sports and academics. He is a fierce protector of kids younger than him and kids with special needs. 
The youngest, Emma, 8, is always on the go! She is always an optimist and wants to try everything. She is both a girly girl and a tomboy all at the same time. She loves dressing up, getting her nails done, and doesn’t understand why she can’t wear makeup yet! With that being said, she also loves catching frogs, getting muddy, and competing in sports just like her older brothers.
