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!

Seniors » Kayla, Class of 2018

Seniors

What an afternoon; it was full of snuggling puppies at the park and taking some pretty Fall senior photos.  Love the autumnal color palette she went with — it really pops!

Family » The Goldens

Children, Family & Children

This is definitely one of my favorite recent shoots!  Sara and I decided to meet at Dunbar Wine Cellar Park, which is a bit off the beaten track, but extremely cool and worth getting lost once or twice!  :)

Family » The Rogers Family

Children, Family & Children

This is 3-month-old Annabelle!  Can you say adorable?  :)  This is a fun age for pictures, since babies have usually learned to hold up their heads and you can capture all their little faces.  I’m loving the bonnet in particular.  You don’t see many babies wear them anymore, which is a pity since they’re precious!

Birthdays » Samuel is One!

Birthdays, Children

Little Samuel here is probably the easiest baby I’ve ever worked with!  He was all smiles for the whole session, and his sweet personality really shows!  He was about to turn one, so a cake smash and lots of balloons were in order.  :)

Maternity » Satya and Swathi

Couples, Maternity

These two were expecting their first child, a little boy, in just a few weeks, and brought along some family for their evening maternity session at University of Charleston!

Family » The Johnsons

Children, Couples, Family & Children

I went to high school with Marcy and hadn’t seen her for probably close to ten years, so it was great to meet her family and get some holiday pictures for them.  :)  Bonus points for having a prime location right behind her parents’ house!

Class of 2016 » Savannah

Seniors

Savannah was interested in a more vintage-styled senior session.  We found a flowery patch outside of the park that was perfect for the feel she wanted.  I’m pretty much in love with this shoot!
