Ohhhhh, how I love this boys momma! She has poured so much into my family over the past year and a half. She has been with us, coaching us on how to handle the baby Tre and make him all he can be! We have "played", laughed and cried together and words just never could express how truly grateful I am to her (and Mrs. Lacy) for all they did to help us! So when she said she wanted me to take her oldest sons senior pictures I was soooooo honored! Jacob is the best! He is beyond smart, honorable, determined and kind. All the things that any parents want their child to be!  Boy, oh boy he is going places in this life and I can't wait to hear about it!  Congrats to Jacob on your graduation! And congrats to mom and dad for doing a great job! logo3 logo4 logo5 logo6 logo7 logo8 logo9

 

Tis the season at Tiptoe Studios and we are ready for the holidays! we have a couple of pretty fantastic deals coming up and we do NOT want you to miss out!

First up- we are starting a new tradition this year and thanks to YOU, we are offering Pictures With Santa this Saturday, December 3rd before the Charles Town/Ranson parade!

Next up- Tiptoe's Last Call for holiday sessions! No worries ya'll, we are still booking regular holiday sessions but these are designed for those of you who love to wait last minute (and I am in the same boat, believe me!) and need digital files for Christmas cards, photo prints, photo gifts, etc. These are 10 minute sessions held on Sunday, December 4th and you will have your digital files edited and delivered in plenty of time for gift giving! Be sure to call and reserve your time slot!

Just a sidenote- our deadline for ordering prints with a guaranteed delivery before Christmas is Monday, December 12th. Anything ordered after that will not be guaranteed for Christmas delivery without extra shipping charges.

XOXO

We LOVED this couple and as sad as it is, I’m so upset their wedding is actually over! I am going to miss them! They are simply perfect for one another, both with equally witty senses of humor and both so, so smart! I learned so much during our times together… We had their engagement shoot in downtown Alexandria and I swear they know EVERYTHING about that city…. (including what pub we needed to go to in the evening..lol) Their wedding day was great even with the light drizzle of rain on and off all day! We made the best of it and went outside anyway! Just another reason to love them so much! I hope that they enjoy these Tiptoe teasers and that their long honeymoon was just as amazing as they are!! Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs.!!!

This couple!! Oh geez, they were so wonderful! Tiptoe was there to capture their wedding a couple years ago and now they are expecting their first baby!! Yahhhhhh!! #lifetimephotographers  So we were prepping for their maternity shoot and we had decided that Harpers Ferry would be the perfect backdrop for what we wanted to accomplish BUTTTTTT, things don't always go as planned! We both arrived to downtown Harpers Ferry to find that there were literally 30,000 people doing touristy things, which makes it hard to have a nice open shot... ANDDDD  the whole road where we normally park was blocked off! AHHHHH! So by the grace of God, we were able to find a parking spot all the way at the end of the road leading to downtown, and we took it! Now the adventure began and I loved that Jeremy pushed us (the girls)  further than we may have ventured ourselves through the woods and across the railroad tracks. After a couple "history" lessons, which may or may not have been true (LOL), we found ourselves all the way down to the river for some gorgeous shots! Gahhh!! So big hugs to them for taking me on new adventures, and BIGGER hugs to Amanda for rolling with it, being all preggos !! #lovethiscouple #can'twaittomeetbabygirl Enjoy these Tiptoe Teasers!

Soooooo we just had an outstanding weekend with 3 Tiptoe weddings!! WHAT 3 weddings in 1 weekend??!! I know!! It is pretty amazing! We all know how much time and preperation goes into getting us ready to shoot 1 wedding and we were able to pull off 3! Well I will just give us a big pat on the back! BUT, the real reason for this post is not to pat us on the back, its to thank and praise our 2nd shooters!  I mean we were able to call on our former Tiptoe gals and they SHOWED up in a big way for us this weekend! We, as the owners of Tiptoe, are so blessed to have such an amazing tribe! I know we say it again and again but once a Tiptoe lady always a Tiptoe lady! So thank you Chasity and Ande for being so capable, impressive, and everything we needed you to be! You all are the BEST!

On a side note because I never would want to leave out a Tiptoe gal, Lindsay we know if you weren't half a world away, we would have been able to call on you and had you right by our side too!! 😉

And let me not finish this post and not have said something equally as amazing about how incredible our Beth is!  She was one of the lead photographers this weekend and we are always impressed by her and her way with people! She IS and has been what Tiptoe embodies, and we couldn't be more proud as Tiptoe parents! LOL!

So thanks all of you all for listening... I am just overly joyed and thankful to be a part of this team, and wanted to share this with all of you, our amazing clients!   #teamtiptoeforever #tiptoetribe #loveus 

And I am pulling out some serious oldies but goodies here! Which is probably the reason I'm being so sentimental! See why pictures are so important?? (*wink, wink*) Remembering the good times!!

Words can't even describe how much I love these littles!! (and their amazing momma!!) And even though we only had a mini session this day, we definitely had the BEST time! I don't even know the last time I laughed quite as hard as I did during the time baby Brinkley was giving me her faces, besides perhaps the time she was giving a similar face during our joint yard sale! (Listen guys, you may have had to be there, it's a long story, LOL) She had her brother, sister and mom in hysterics too, so at least I wasn't the only one! I did end up catching some natural smiles through the laughs, which is the BEST!  Please enjoy these teasers!

So I have known sweet Kayla for many, many years! Back in the day, the pre-tiptoe days, lol,  I worked with Kayla's mom at a local bank. Kayla must've been like a baby then.... Like not actually a baby, but she was just a little girl! A sweet little girl! AND now she is like a high school senior! Whatttttt???  Kayla is such a beauty inside and out. No matter what angle I shot her from, I never got a bad picture!  Gorgeous!! I certainly wish her the best of luck after she graduates from high school this spring. Enjoy some of my faves!
