Sweet 16 » McKenzie

Couples, Events, Sweet Sixteen

I’ve never done a sweet 16 session before, but I’m already craving another! McKenzie wanted a sunset session in a field, along with some couples shots with her boyfriend, and I think they turned out gorgeous. We were lucky that this evening was one of the best sunsets I’ve seen in a long time; so many colors!

Portraits » Alicia (Black Fae Day)

Cosplay, Events, Featured, West Virginia, Whimsy

I’m vaccinated and back at it, after a 441 day hiatus!

May 8th will be Black Fae Day, a celebration of Black representation in fantasy and fiction.  My friend Alicia (of Kiss A Frog Cosplay) put together this stunning Viceroy butterfly ensemble, and I was more than happy to trek down to a local creek with her and get shooting!  They turned out just as magical as we’d hoped, and I dunno about you, but I’m SO excited to see all the other photos that will be shared on the 8th!  Take a peek at a few faves!

An Easter Birthday » Jameson is One!

Birthdays, Children, Family & Children, Holidays

Jameson’s first birthday fell around Easter, so this Peter Rabbit theme couldn’t have been any more perfect! Just look at that basket of garden goodies, that “garden” cake, and THE BUNNY. It’s just too much cuteness! His big brother Dawson, of course, had to join in on the fun. :)

Baptism » The Tallarico Family

Baptisms, Children, Events, Family & Children

I had the honor to photograph little Madeline’s baptism at the Basilica of the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart here in Charleston.  What a gorgeous church, wonderful family, and beautiful day!
