WOW! I never imagined that my 1st place win in the 2011 Re-Imaging Appalachia Photo Contest hosted by the University of Kentucky’s Appalachian Center would produce articles about me that were published all over the country over the past week, some as far away as Texas and Utah! I am blown away. I have been getting emails, texts, facebook messages, cards in the mail, and people congratulating me all over town! I feel so honored and blessed! Thank you to everyone out there who has made me feel so special lately :) 

Here are a few of the articles…

Charleston Daily Mail…
The News Enterprise, Louisville, KY…
The Parkersburg News and Sentinel…
I had a wonderful outdoor session over the weekend with beautiful 5 week old Presley Allen. I photographed her while she was still in her Mom’s belly just a few months ago :)
All of these shots were done in Vienna, West Virginia and we could not have asked for a better day or better light to work with! 
Shooting Newborn/Baby portraits outdoors allows for even more imagination and artistic flare! I love these images and am happy to share them…


A few favorites from my 2-Day shoot for Jessica’s Dance Company on May 14th and 15th…


This past Sunday I met up with some of my favorite clients in the Charleston area. I photographed little Miss Joscelyn at Kanawha State Forest and The McClure Family in dowtown Charleston.

From their Engagement Session in Richmond, VA on April 27, 2011

Did a quick Maternity session last week for my fellow photog friend, Mel Deem. Mel and Mike and their daughter River are super excited about the upcoming birth of their little Sawyer! :)



Great session with Rachel and Dell on Saturday in Charleston.  They brought their dog Jackson along and he got a treat :) The couple live in Teays Valley but are originally from Pt. Pleasant where their Wedding will be later this year. Can’t wait to shoot that too, sweet couple! 



Donna Sellers has been chosen by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh as their 2011 Council’s Award recipient.  This award is the FHLBank’s highest individual honor.  It is presented annually to an individual demonstrating outstanding achievements in banking and community development.
