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!

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!

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!  :)

Class of 2016 » Claire (+Lorelai!)

Children, Seniors

I’ve been doing photos of Claire and Lorelai for years now, so I was excited when she asked me to take some quick celebratory shots right before her high school graduation.  Lorelai had to get in on the action, of course, so we captured some really cute memories of this big event.  Congrats to Claire!

Prom » Kiersten & Alex

Couples, Events, Prom, Seniors

Prom photos are a lot of fun — all that glamour and excitement!  Kiersten and Alex wanted a mini-session at the capitol, and even though it rained on us and we had to hide under the columns, we got some nice shots and didn’t get too soaked.  :)
