What a fun engagement session with Jennie and James on Tuesday night. Well, not really an engagement session per say… they are actually already married because they eloped, but they are planning to have a ceremony sometime in the near future. They met in Alabama while they were both in the military. Jennie is no longer serving in the military, but James is, and the couple currently live in Germany. Jennie is originally from Parkersburg and they were in for a visit. Jennie was also referred to me by most favorite bride ever, Abby, who’s engagements I shot in Washington D.C. last spring and Wedding I shot in Parkersburg. Spending time with Jennie I could totally see why her and Abby are such great friends, both have super fun personalities! We were supposed to shoot their pics at Fort Boreman Park in Parkersburg, however opted for studio since the forecast was calling for thunderstorms. So they came down but the rain held off just enough to venture outdoors and get some amazing shots! I love the light during overcast days, it’s wonderful. Throw in some itty bitty sprinkles and an umbrella and you’ve got a winning shot!

Congrats Jennie & James, your happiness together radiates and I hope you give me a call when it’s time to plan the ceremony!





Another cool Senior session on Friday evening. This time with Ryan C. from Parkersburg South High School. We had fun with his guitars and snowboard.









Super fun Senior shoot on Thursday evening with Andrew W. from Ravenswood High. Beautiful day, great weather and perfect locations including the high school gym & boys basketball locker room, what more could I ask for? I am like a kid in a candy store when a shoot goes my way!

Andrew and the Red Devils’ basketball team were the Class AA WV State Champs this year, so we had to commemorate the special achievement! Big thanks to the Coach for giving us access to the gym!

Andrew is cool…






Ok so River High School is in Hannibal, Ohio, which is an hour and a half from Ravenswood. Bless this girl and her Dad for driving down here on Wednesday night! Her Dad Craig found me on myspace. It was a pleasure to work with Chelsea to create some very unique Senior portraits that I am sure no one else in her town will have!






I had a great time photographing Isaac M’s photos on Tuesday evening. Another Ravenswood Senior. Such a sweet guy and super smart. He loves Biology and his Biology teacher whom he spoke so highly of. He is also in the Show Choir and we did some pics in his suit. My what bright red jackets they wear! Good time, thanks for coming in Isaac!

A few of my favs…




I was delighted to photograph this angel face on Saturday evening. Her parents Bobbie & Eric brought her down all the way from Morgantown for the session! They are a delightful family, with a new baby on the way. I can’t wait to see them again soon for Bobbie’s Maternity session! Isn’t Armani the coolest name ever? I sure think so!






Another terrific Senior shoot on Thursday with Derick. We had fun with his motorcycle. As his Mom says, not even a girl can come between him and his bike!





Here are some favorites from my session with Kyle K. from Parkersburg South High on Tuesday morning. He did a 8am shoot- he was yawning a lot too but we got some amazing shots! Klye is super smart and in the top of his graduating class! He’s also pretty cute too :)






Another amazing engagement session on Monday! This time it was with Chris & Kara, my August 15th Bride & Groom from Logan! They are a gorgeous couple to begin with and nice as can be. They put up with me all evening as I ran them all over Charleston to different spots. We got a great variety of backdrops, including the State Capital and topped the evening off with some shots overlooking the entire downtown with the city lights off in the distance. Fun, funm fun!!!












Bailey and Trinity are my August 8th Wedding clients from CLAY County. They drove almost 2 hours on Saturday (bless their hearts) for their Engagement Session with me. It was our first time meeting and I could tell the moment they walked in the door that we were going to have fun! They are a great couple and Bailey is just so bubbly and sweet :) They really rocked this e-session out and we got some AMAZING images. Thanks for being awesome guys, can’t wait til the Wedding!
