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

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!

I am so happy to share Nick's senior session with you all!! I met him several years ago through our local 4-H (my Olivia is a clover bud with the Yahoo Buckaroos) He's such a great kid and we had so much fun exchanging stories about our lab "puppies" and I learned a ton about hockey and our local teams! Our session was so relaxed and fun and he was great at taking my crazy directions!! I hope you all enjoy!

Hey guys! Just wanted to do a quick teaser for Gabi, since her ordering session is tomorrow! I think I have found a new favorite place to take my clients looking for field pictures! Ahhh! I am so in love with these images! I mean it didn't hurt that my subject is absolutely breathtaking too!  No wonder a couple times during her shoot people were literally copying us taking pictures, pose and backdrop,  while we were standing right there! #flattered

Anyway, enjoy Gabi, these 2 are my faves!

Oh my goodness...Susie has grown up!! We first shot Susie with her family years and years ago, and have had a couple different shoots throughout the years but now it was time for her SENIOR shoot, which I was so excited for because her shoots are always so much fun! She always had great ideas and wore the cutest outfits! Plus it helps that she is so good in front of the camera! So I knew that this senior shoot wouldn't be any different!  We spent hours shooting, on a super windy day, and I just wanted to share some of her gorgeous teasers!! Love this gal!

I am loving all these Tiptoe senior sessions this year, and Mikayla is one of my favorites! We took her brothers senior photos several years ago, and little did we know the adventure we were in for... Wesley volunteered for the Shepherdstown Fire Dept, so we knew we wanted that to be one of our backdrops, however while we were there shooting, they got a call, and we actually got to photograph the helicopter that ended up landing right in back of the station... It was such a one in a lifetime experience!

I knew that Mikayla's session needed to be just as memorable! We started off in town and got some amazing shots, but then we headed out to the ball field, Mikayla's second home (she is quite the talented softball player)... AND the sunset magic was upon us... Oh and so was Daisy the cow! Who was quite a hit...every car that was pulling out after practice stopped to greet her! "That isn't something we see everyday" is what we got a lot!  I even got messages later that evening asking if it was me at the ball field. LOL... they saw a girl with a camera, a senior and a cow, and OF COURSE they would assume it was me!  I love it! Daisy the cow has apparently been such a part of Mikayla's life for so many years, her parents say she is the friendliest cow ever, that frequently when Mikayla would get home from school as a kid Daisy would meet her at the end of the field and walk with her home, just like a puppy! Aww, if that isn't one of the cutest stories I have ever heard. Also just a little tidbit of information that I learned, Daisy was born a twin, and because of that she isn't able to have babies now (although they are still hoping for a miracle, because Daisy used to play mom to a pig, and would make an amazing momma.)

Here are just a couple of my favorites from the day guys! Enjoy! willingham9 willingham11 willingham19 willingham28 willingham32 willingham33

Erica is a SENIOR!! Whattttt!!?? I almost couldn't believe it myself. The shoot itself seem surreal! Like am I really taking Erica's senior photos??  The Mercers and the Heflins have been great friends for years and years now, and I swear I blinked and Erica is all grown up! Now I know that this day has been coming... Erica has been one of our best baby sitters for a long time... So I remember the days of her watching Olivia at her house so her parents could oversee the operation, then it was that she was old enough to do it at my house and her parents would drop her off, and then she started to drive herself, and BOOM she is a stinking SENIOR! Geesh!!

So a little about the shoot... We knew we wanted to do something a little different with our locations, so a friend of her mom's had this AMAZING farm in Purceville, VA that we were able to use.  And I literally could've spent another 2 hours there, finding little nooks that were so unique. There were fields, little houses, barns, low hanging trees, gardens, and lots of little spaces that were just decorated with benches and hanging picture frames! It was incredible! Photographers DREAM!

We also knew that we had to incorporate Prim the goat! Erica has been very involved in 4-H and FFA for so long. She loves her animals! And what would her senior pictures be without incorporating them!

So finally... here are some of the teasers of one of my favorite girls. Erica you are so smart, kind, determined, compassionate, well-rounded, and BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait to see what this world has in store for you! heflin4 heflin3 heflin2 heflin1

What an amazing shoot I had last week with this beauty! She is a senior this upcoming year and opted for a Tiptoe styled shoot instead of the ones through the school. As we walked the streets of downtown Charles Town to find great shooting locations, she got looks and compliments from our passerby's! And I am sure you all can see why! She is absolutely STUNNING! I can barely take any credit for these beautiful photos!!  logo1 logo2 logo3 logo4
