Kristi & Brian - Engaged | Virginia Beach Engagement Photographer

Kristi and Brian are getting married next May and I can't wait for their wedding!  We met up at Red Wing Park for their engagement session.  They brought along their daughter Braelyn, who had her own sign for the session! Even though it was later in the afternoon, it was humid and we all were sweating like we were in a sauna.  But Kristi, Brian, and Braelyn pushed through it and we got some awesome shots!! 

Kristi & Brian are Boston Red Sox fans, so we definitely had to get some photos of them donning their best Red Sox apparel. Braelyn of course looked adorable  in her cute tulle skirt. Anyone know where I can get one in my size?! 

Here are a few of my favorite shots from their session! Can't wait for the wedding next year!!

Miss Briyleigh is TWO! | Virginia Beach Children's Photographer

Little miss Briyleigh is too adorable. Her momma is currently deployed on the USS Bush, so she is missing out on Briyleigh's second birthday. So Briyleigh's daddy and I talked about doing some photos in her birthday outfit and send them out to momma.  The day of the session, the sky literally dropped outta nowhere.  It was raining cats and dogs and then some.  While we patiently waited for it to finally die down, we did some in home photos.  Once we saw that it had stopped, we then made our way to Red Wing Park.  Of course, when we got there, it was still drizzling a little.  But we jumped on the opportunity before the weather decided to turn again.

Needless to say, miss Briyleigh definitely had me running around and kept me on my toes!

Is It a Boy or Is It a Girl? | Virginia Beach Portrait Photographer

You'll recognize my friend Gina and her adorable kiddos.  They were my last session of 2013.  Well, it was at that session that Gina told me she was preggo and wanted me to help her announce the gender when it was time.  Now with gender reveals, usually only a few people know. This time it was just me and the sonographer.  But on the day of the sonogram to find out the gender, Gina felt a little unsure that they did it correctly; I have heard about a sonogram being done incorrectly and the baby turning out to be a boy instead of a girl! So, we waited another week, for her anatomy check up to get a "second" opinion. I was already bursting at the seams as Gina posted on Facebook that we were going to do a gender reveal and asked everyone what their guesses were. But I promised to keep it a secret until the gender reveal session!

We met up at Red Wing Park in Virginia Beach.  And of course, when we showed up, everyone and their mother were there.  The cherry blossoms were abundant, so everyone was taking the small opportunity to capture them in the background of their photos. So did we!  A few nights prior, Gina made some blue and pink colored powders for the kiddos to throw at her.  I got them ready, let's just say that they had WAY too much fun throwing the powder on her!

Keep an eye out for more of that beautiful belly! In a few more months we will be doing some maternity photos and I CAN'T WAIT! But until then, you get to oogle over these photos!
