Meet Austin Brown!

I also wanted to share this chapter of Greg and Debbie's life with you. They recently had their second child Austin. He is SOOO beautiful! I am looking forward to every photo session I have with him. I think if you look at Peyton's picture in the post below you will see how much they look like eachother...There's some strong genes in the Brown family :-) I want to say thank you to Greg and Debbie for allowing me to photograph their wonderful family.

Remembering Peyton Brown

This is a very hard subject for me to talk about but I want to share this with you. One of the very first post I did was of a sweet baby girl named Peyton. I first met and became friends with Debbie, Peyton's mom 14 years ago. So I was thrilled to have her on my monthly baby plan. I had the honor of photographing her beautiful life for four months. She past away very unexpectedly and left behind a lot of family and friends who will love her and cherish her memory forever. Her parents found a wonderful way to work through their personal grief and remember her with a cookbook of recipes given to them by friends and family. All the proceeds go to benefit the James River Assembly children's wing. Please contact Peyton's mom Debbie at to purchase this cookbook. I have to say it is a very impressive book that was developed by parents for the love of their child. I hope we all together can help with this.

Meet Sid!

This is our little office cutie! His name is Sid aka "baby dog" or better yet "The Urinater" lol! It seems like someone is always outside with him ;-) He sleeps on Whitney's desk a lot and he is just a little sweetheart of a dog. As I'm sure you can tell he is a chihuahua. We just LOVE him! Oh yeah he is also great for testing studio lights, that's how we got this picture of him ;-)

Kellin, a sweet little cutie in our baby program!

Here is a session I wanted to share with you. I photographed Jeff and Kristen's wedding and now I get to photograph their sweet baby girl. This is one of the greatest things about being a wedding photographer, you get to be with a family from day one. This was Kellin's second session and she is just a little doll to be around. Can't wait for the next time!

Jellyfish on our Vacation...Yikes!

It's our first Jellyfish sting! Ouch! I wish it wuld have been me or better yet my husband ;-) But it was our 11 year old daughter. She came out of the water with tears streaming down her face and she said "I think I have been stung by a jellyfish". We looked all over her leg and saw nothing, so I asked what it felt like and she said "needles everywhere". Within in a couple of minutes the whelps appeared and proved her right. I had planned on posting some beach pictures from our vacation but this was not what I was thinking. Today they look like scraps and she is doing just fine, probably proud that she took her first hit by a jellyfish. She is a pretty tough girl :-)

Seattle with Hye Jin and Ashish!

I wanted to put up a teaser picture of these two amazing people. I cannot wait until I can show you more of what I shot! Hye Jin and Ashish were up for doing whatever I wanted to do. The photography was such an important part of their day so as you can guess I was on cloud nine all day! I love traveling to other locations and doing destination weddings, I always feel so inspired by all my new surroundings. I hope you enjoy this teaser and I can PROMISE you will be seeing more from this wedding.
