Cunha Family Photo Session

I loved this late fall family photo session.  Autumn’s color palette combined with a beautiful family paints a pretty fall scene.   Add an adorable two year old and a family pet with lots of personality and one has a concoction that is perfection.

Shelby the pit bull is not only gorgeous, but knew when it was time to pose with the rest of the family on cue.   She was a complete love and sweetheart.  And, not to mention her silky coat fit in with the autumn color theme as well.  What more can a photographer ask for.

Thanks to the Cunha family for providing a lovely setting to photograph their portrait session.  I wish you all a Merry Christmas and holiday full of love and cheer!

Danielle’s Senior Photo Session

I’m so proud of this senior photo session.  Why, you may ask?  Well, it’s because the senior in these images just happens to be my niece.  The years have flown by and Danielle has become such a beautiful young lady.  I’m so honored that she chose me to capture her senior photos.

Danielle is pursuing a career in the nursing field.  She plans to focus on a specialty; either in oncology or ER, but she’s leaving her options open.  And, oh my goodness! Her mom told me she’s applied to ten colleges to date!

Danielle has been a cheerleader since the tender age of six-years-old.  She started with the Bedford Jaguars, and then when she aged-out, she cheered for her middle school and then high school.  She made varsity as a freshman in high school and remains on the team through her senior year.  She was always a “flyer.”  Imagine being lifted and thrown in the air, twisting your body, and all the while trusting the girls beneath you to catch you descending in the air.  Gives me goosebumps.  Danielle was also an amazing “tumbler.”  Her last tumbling skill was a “full.”  Due to a knee injury–Danielle has had to step back from cheering, but still gives back as the Team Captain.  Such admirable accomplishments and she has always had an iron determination.  I say this time–imagine her will, and what lies ahead for her future!  Yes, I’m truly a proud aunt!


Danielle – I’m so proud of all of your accomplishments!  I wish you heartfelt success in all that you do!  And  thank you always for making your aunt feel special by choosing me as your photographer!

Kayla’s Senior Photo Session

What can I say about this beautiful girl?  The camera loves her and it was one of my favorite photo sessions to date.  Kayla is looking forward to completing her Senior year of High School and she’s currently busy applying and working hard on her college essays.  Kayla has always loved animals and she’s seeking a career in veterinary science.  What an exciting time for Kayla and such a wonderful career path!

We also snuck in a few family portraits.  As you can see good looks run in the family.  Kayla’s brother Alex is quite handsome and I look forward to photographing his senior session in a few years.  The following images show the warmth and charm this family exudes.

Thanks to Kayla and her family for a wonderful photo shoot.  I wish Kayla the best of luck in all her future endeavors.

Becki and Adam

Where do I begin with Becki and Adam?  Capturing their love and affection for one another was as easy and as natural as the sun rising every morning.  Becki mentioned during our first discussions about the session that she and Adam had not had professional images taken of them for quite some time.  They had also missed the opportunity to have professional wedding photos done.   So this session was  mainly about them as a couple.  We discussed doing a family photo session at a later date, once their son came back from camp.

Young FamilyI’m looking forward to capturing another photo session in the future for this lovely family.  I’m also happy that I was able to give Becki and Adam these beautiful images, of just the two of them, to look back on and cherish years from now.
