Mrs. Riverfest 2011 Melissa Starcher who has been a client of mine for several years now drove up from Charleston today for a shoot :) 


Great 3 hour session with Rylee on August 8th…

I photographed Miss Amy Ferrell on August 12th to mark her 16th birthday. Amy goes to PCHS and is a cheerleader, can’t wait to do her Senior pics in a few years! Have a great year Amy! :)


What a great session with this gang on August 10th. Annie, Sarah, Nelson, Stevie, and Drew were all wonderful!  Sometimes it can be challenging to do a group of kids this large and that vary in age, but these guys were so well behaved and fun loving! What a wonderful family. I hope they treasure these…


What a super fabulous Senior session this was! Jenna was amazing to hang with, and her Mom Barbie. They made me laugh a lot.  

Jenna hopes to someday own a bakery so we stopped in Jr’s Donut Castle in North Parkersburg for some unique shots. JR was there and gave us access to the kitchen to make it even more special for Jenna! Thanks JR. Did I mention I love their donuts and pepperoni rolls? Yum…


Since my time for blogging is very limited lately and I don’t want to miss posting any beautiful faces from recent sessions, here is another bulk post. I am going to miss photographing these babies outdoors once the warm weather ends in a few months. However, I am ready for Fall and the beautiful colors that come with it!

Rachel came up from Charleston on August 2nd for her 3 hour Senior session. Her fiance Josh came along too. Good times!


This past week I had the honor of photographing Jane Schenerlein’s (owner of Elizabeth Michaels in Vienna) newest addition, little Miss Rea. She was 2 weeks and 4 days old here. So precious! What a happy family! Congrats!


I had a blast with this young lady! Lakin did the Senior Life session and broke it up into 2 days, one on her Dad’s property in South Parkersburg, the other at our downtown studio. Her Dad and Stepmother’s home were shot was amazing to say the least. Their zebra statues made my day. The story is they used to belong to a Mini Golf course that was once behind the Grand Central Mall many many years ago and were purchased in an auction by a family member. They made for great props along with their pond, pool, gazebo, fields, fences, and horses! Lakin loves to shop with Daddy’s money and drive the brand new wheels he got her! Can you say Daddy’s Little girl? Ummm, yeah! Fun times!

A few favs…


We kicked off our 2012 Senior season with a PHS Football player on August 25th. Let me tell you, the CLASS OF 2012 are ROCKIN’ it!!! I am having a blast already and it’s only just begun! 

John was great to work with and I loved having access to shoot him out on the field at sunset. Congrats John and the best luck this football season and in the future!
