virginia Military homecomings

There are so many emotions during homecomings - excitement, anxiousness, a lot of patience and waiting, sadness over the milestones missed and time spent apart, but also joy and happiness at being reunited and the promise of all the memories to come. Let me capture these moments for you to cherish.

Virginia and beyond

I have had two brothers-in-law deploy over the years and seeing the joy on my sisters' faces when they return just tugs on all my heartstrings. I was so thankful to be there for my sister and capture the moment she and her hubby were reunited after eight long months!

When I am asked what my favorite subject to photograph is, I often say homecomings. The amount of planning, anticipation and emotion that goes into a military homecoming is astounding, and every homecoming I witness, I leave a changed person.


During your session, you'll notice me shooting with multiple cameras. This is because I am a hybrid film photographer, which means I shoot on both a digital camera as well as a film camera. 

Film is my favorite medium to create beautiful portraits for my clients. here are a few reasons why: The colors are so rich and deep in a way that digital just can't match. A softer focus allows for smoother and creamier skin tones, perfectly hiding any imperfections. It's fine art look evokes luxury and quality. The way film renders light is magical. Even simple and mundane moments feel special on film

It's timeless. Film has been around for over a hundred years and is still considered the luxury medium for photography. You will enjoy your film images for years to come.

Do you remember the days visiting your grandparents, pouring over albums upon albums of family photos? Your parents' lives spread out on the pages before you. Photos leading to stories, leading to long-forgotten memories, recalling details from days long ago. 

I do. It was always my favorite pastime visiting my grandma, the family documentarian. Now the task has passed down to me, documenting the days as they go by, keeping the record for my nieces and nephews, for my own children to come. 

Now think of your children, ten, twenty, fifty years from now. What will they have to look back on to remember a time they were too young to recall themselves. 

It would be my honor to be your family's documentarian, too! Forever chronicling your journey together with timeless portraits that your family will enjoy for generations to come. 

A photo is worth a thousand memories
