Macy and Taylor

I am so excited about these two getting married this June. Seriously how cute are they?? We had the BEST weather for their engagement session :)

Brenleigh Turns One

I have photographed this little nugget all year and I just love her! She is so sweet. I wish that I could take credit for the amazing set up you see here, but thats all her mama :) LOVE these so much!

Venue: Sorella Farms. Flowers: Heathers Custom Creations


Natalie and Mark

Natalie and Mark were just married this past Saturday and Im already blogging their wedding....THATS how much I love these images! We not only had some amazing rain clouds, but an incredible sunset as well. It seriously could not have been a better day. Natalie and Mark were married at the beautiful Sierra Vista in Virginia, they decided to do a first look which trust me is always a great idea! Not only do you get more images, it helps you prevent missing any portraits later due to rain and storms. Not to mention, you get to see each other in a more quiet, personal environment...which trust me is sooooo needed on a wedding day!

Natalie and Mark you guys were seriously amazing and had me laughing the whole time. You make me love my job even more and I hope you love this little preview. I can't wait for you to see all of your images!

Cate 8 month milestone

I love it when my clients bring their little ones to me to celebrate their milestone! This first year is such a changing one, and I highly recommend documenting a six or either month milestone :) I shot miss Cate's newborn session and she looks soooo much like her sister now! The new studio was perfect for this as well!

 

 

Jessica Senior Session {Senior Portrait Photographer}{Senior Pictures}

Well guys I am so backed upon blogging! As you know I (or I should say my awesome husband) have been busy this summer building the new studio this summer. Not to mention regular shoots, the kids being off and traveling....lets just say my kids are back in school and I am back to work! I did Jessicas senior pictures early this summer and you guys...I can't handle how amazing they turned out!

LHP new studio space

The new studio space is here and open for business! It has been one long, hard summer at our house. I cannot say enough about my husband, family and our AMAZING friends. They all made this possible and it would have never happened without them. They say dreams come true and I must say this has definitely been a dream of mine that has. If you have any interest in booking a studio session, let me know! I do offer weekday specials. Here are a few images from my first weekend being open, thank you so much to all of my amazing clients who came to see me! 

Katelyn and Ben {Virginia Weddings}{Virginia Wedding Photographer}

Katelyn and Ben are both two of the sweetest souls you will ever meet. Not only that but their entire family and wedding party were an absolute dream to work with! Weddings can be a very stressful occasion, but you would have never known it with this group. There was so much love, and everyone was just there to celebrate this amazing bride and groom. Katelyn and Ben met at Liberty University after being set up by a friend, who also happened to be one of Katelyns bridesmaids :). She also wore her mothers veil which I find so very sweet!Their wedding was held at Sierra Vista in Goode Va, which is also amazing in every way. I hope you enjoy these photos for so many years to come you guys, and thank you so much for allowing me to document this day for you! You were both a blessing!

Gillispie Maternity

Rosalia you are just stunning! I can't wait to meet your little one in a few weeks when we do your newborn pictures :) Im so honored that you asked me to photograph these for you. Many clients choose to forego maternity pictures but to me they mean so much. We shot this session at Sweet Briar College in Monroe, Virginia. The clouds gave us the perfect light!

Rachel and Steve {Virginia Wedding Photographer}

Rachel and Steves wedding day could not have been more beautiful. One of my favorite features of the day was Rachels dress which was her grandmothers, and had been altered to fit her. It was absolutely gorgeous and I love the added history. Their wedding took place at First Presbyterian Church of Lynchburg, VA and Tresca on 8th. Thank you both again for allowing me to document this day for you and I pray you have an amazing life ahead of you! :)

Venue: Tresca on 8th, MUA: Body Works Day Spa, Dress: The Gilded Thimble, DJ: Official Entertainment, Catering: Love is in the air events

 

Spencers Beach Session {Huntington Beach State Park} {Myrtle Beach Photographer}

I have taken Spencers photos numerous times now, so when her mom reached out to me about some pictures at the beach I was so excited that one of my trips lined up with hers! I typically stay in Sunset Beach NC, but can certainly travel a bit from there, so we decided to take the photos a bit closer to where they were staying in Myrtle Beach. Huntington Beach State Park is such a gorgeous place and she is the sweetest girl!

Taylor Senior Session

This girl and her beautiful smile. Seriously one of the sweetest high school seniors I have ever had the pleasure of working with. We may have run into a little rain, but she smiled the whole time and just had fun with it, now she has these unique images! Taylor I wish you all the best! You are the type of beautiful person who will go so many places! Thank you for letting me work with you!
