Hi Ya'll!

New year, new exciting things happening at Tiptoe Studios! Let me just start by saying that we love, love, LOVE a newborn session! For us ladies, there is nothing better than cuddling with a brand new little girl or boy; that new baby smell, the adorable little sounds and perfect little baby face make us fall in love with each and every Tiptoe baby we meet!

We are super excited to introduce our new promotion for maternity, birthDAY and newborn sessions! Because these sessions absolutely go hand in hand, why not save a little money? Now, whenever you book two or more of these 3 sessions, you have the opportunity to save BIG! Mix and match maternity and newborn, maternity and birthDAY, birthDAY and newborn...the combo is completely up to you! Or book all 3 for even bigger savings!

So, if you are expecting, give us a ring or shoot us an email to book! Let us love on your little munchkin for a bit...we promise to give them back! 😉

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! We had an overwhelming request for these sessions so we decided to try it out! You will already be in town for the parade; why not stop by and your little one(s) picture taken with Santa?


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.


Next up is a yearly Tiptoe favorite- our Black Friday/ Small Business Saturday Sale! It's back and it is as fabulous as ever; for every $50 in gift cards purchased, get $25 FREE! The perfect holiday gift for your loved ones or for yourself! This deal is only available on November 25th and 26th so be sure to give us a ring on those days if you want to take advantage of this awesome sale!


We look forward to seeing you walk through our door on one of these days! Happy holidays from the entire Tiptoe crew!



I'm sure you have seen this adorable little girl featured on our blog before.  I have been photographing Kennedy since she was two. We have come a LONG way!  We no longer have to bribe her with candy or threaten her that she won't get her toes done or go to the pool.  She comes in with her game face on and just rocks it out... I think I'm slowly growing on her..haha.  I just absolutely adore her and she makes me so proud!  Enjoy some teasers from her session.

Tara here and I have some really great news! It's fundraiser time and this go round we are supporting an awesome local baseball team, the 8U Summit Point Pride! These boys have worked super hard and just won the Virginia District 9 Babe Ruth Rookie Championship! This means they are moving on to the state tournament in New Kent Virginia starting on June 30th. Tiptoe is hosting a fundraiser to help them cover some of the costs associated with the trip and that means you have the opportunity to get a great discounted price on our copyrights and help out the boys at the same time! It's totally a win/win situation if I do say so, myself! You are able to use this deal for almost any type of shoot- family, kids, engagement, head shot, etc.

We will be booking these sessions in 10 minute time slots at $30 per image instead of our regular $100. That's right, folks, it is a savings of $70!! You can book up to 2 slots per family at the same $30 per image. (So 2 slots= $60 and 2 copyright images.) 50% of the proceeds go right back to the Pride, so please help us help them make this happen!

To book your slot, give me a ring at 304-995-6743 or shoot me an email at tiptoestudios@yahoo.com. We can't wait to see you!

I absolutely LOVE weddings!  Nothing makes me happier than capturing the TRUE love that a couple shares on their wedding day.  I instantly flash back to my wedding day almost 7 years ago and my heart just about explodes.

I first met Cari-Ann and Paul back in December and we immediately hit it off.  I couldn't wait to start working with them.  The engagement session was great so I knew their wedding day would be AMAZING!

Here are a few TEASERS from their day...and for the first time in weeks the rain held off!

We have shot many weddings over the years, so we have seen it all.  But when I say they thought about everything, really...they thought about EVERYTHING.   It was such an amazing day that I'm sure their guest will not forget.  Everything was absolutely STUNNING!   Tommie and Mark are such a sweet couple, and we are so thankful to have been able to capture their perfect day!  They got married at The Bowling Green Country Club in Front Royal, VA.  Enjoy a couple teasers from their special day.

What a beautiful wedding this was.  Justine looked absolutely flawless in her dress and those bright red lips.  Danny could not keep his eyes off her and I don't believe he EVER stopped smiling.  I mean do you blame him...just look at her, GORGEOUS!!  They got married at the George Washington Hotel in Winchester, VA.  Here are a few teasers from their special day.  Enjoy!

Every year since Maximus was 6 months old we have done a week long vacation to North Carolina, but with trying to sell our house (which is still on the market if you know anyone looking for a house...lol) we just weren't sure of our plans...so we backed out of the usual group vacation and had no plans of doing a beach trip this summer....BUMMER!  BUT...when my parents expressed wanting to get away for a few days we decided a quick trip to Ocean City for a few days is just what our family needed.

The boys were super excited because we have never gone on vacation with Grandma and Papa and I was excited to use my new camera that my partners got me for my birthday, which was last week.  (Thanks TT and Hoss!!!)  I still can't believe I only have one more year until I'm 30, ugh!!! Sucks getting old.  But anyways that's another blog topic.  As usual a few days leading up to it, I'm running around like a crazy person trying to make sure I have all I need, doing some last minute shopping, wondering who is going to look after our cats, washing clothes, cleaning the house, etc. etc.

We finally get to the beach and AHHH...  It's crazy how just being there makes me feel so peaceful.  Maximus kept asking if we would live here.  They both were a big crazy mess... staying up late, getting up early, eating anything and everything, but hey what's vacation if you can't do all those things, right?  It was a great time and I do love the beach, but boy am glad to be home.

Here are a few photos of the boys and for once I managed to get in a photo with Maximus.  Enjoy!
