Sylvia | Blacksburg Senior Portraits

I was SO all-around impressed with Sylvia. She is involved in band and theatre and is interested in science and backpacking, among other things. She’s clever and mature and, well, I think she is poised to take the world by storm. We did her session at Heritage Park in Blacksburg, which is a favorite spot for many of my clients. I shoot there a LOT, so sometimes it can feel like I’m taking the same pictures over and over again. Not this time, though. We happened to get to the pond exactly as a beautiful reflection of the clouds was appearing over it, something I hadn’t seen before. And we made ..read more

I have a special little friend who I see about once a week in the lobby of my daughter’s dance studio. She always comes over with a grin to say hello, dance a little bit, and show me her latest sparkly pink accessory. Just being honest here… she kind of makes my day. Of course, we already had a connection before our dance meetings, because as it turns out, I did a portrait session for her family last fall! Here are some highlights from our time together ..read more

Rounding out this year’s senior reps is Harper, another dancer from Blacksburg. She’s a busy girl, with a full dance class schedule, teaching duties, and swimming on the side. I really admire how she and the other seniors I work with are able to manage their time with so many activities and special interests to balance. Harper was so relaxed and fun to work with. I love that she wanted to include tap dancing photos as well as ballet! She will go down in history as my first tap portrait model. This shoot will also go down in history as the time when I got to our meeting spot, opened my bag to p ..read more

Abbey | Radford Senior Portraits

Meet Abbey, my senior rep from Radford High School. I’ve known Abbey since she was a little girl, because we went to the same church. She has always been confident and beautiful, with a contagious smile and vivacious personality. I was really happy when she applied to be one of my three senior representatives, because I knew her red curls and soulful brown eyes would be stunning in photos. Abbey’s been involved in theatre and forensics for years–you might have seen her on the RHS stage as Wednesday Adams last year. She’s amazing in front of an audience, but she’s also a natural in front of the ..read more

Lindsay | Blacksburg Senior Portraits

When I put out a call for three new senior representatives last spring, I was thrilled when Lindsay was the among the first to respond. She dances at my daughter’s studio, which means I’ve watched her on stage for years now… including as the routine leader in Caroline’s very first recital dance. In addition to dance, Lindsay plays tennis and is on the diving team, and she even runs her own local business selling beautiful vegan candles and wax melts. I don’t know how she finds the time and energy to do it all, but she does, because she’s amazing. Lindsay, thank you for trusting me with your se ..read more

Senior Portraits: Sports!

My social media news feeds are full of medals and scoreboards and proud parents right now. ‘Tis the season for competitive swimming, dancing, cheering, and track, and the warm weather is reminding us that soccer and baseball and softball and tennis are right around the corner, and basketball season is still in process. I know I left a lot of out, because I didn’t even mention wrestling or volleyball or any of the fall sports, and I don’t even know when Lacrosse season starts and ends. (I’ll be honest, I wasn’t an athlete in high school… I stumbled my way through two seasons of track but mostly ..read more

Boys’ Senior Portraits | Blacksburg Photography

Something a little unusual happened this year: I got more requests for sessions for senior boys than for girls. I’m not sure why, exactly, but it doesn’t particularly matter. I enjoy working with ALL seniors. And honestly, it was nice to get to expand my portfolio a bit in this manner. Which brings me to my next point, and the point of this post… when you do a google image search for “Blacksburg Senior Photography,” you see a lot of beautiful young women. They are wearing pretty dresses and walking pensively through fields, or posing by the Hokie stone walls of Virginia Tech, or looking 100% i ..read more

It’s mid-December, and I have finally crawled out from under a mountain of editing tasks. My calendar has been full of sessions with the most lovely families… some new, and some long-time returning clients. Blacksburg is always beautiful in the fall, but this year was something special: weekend after weekend of sunshine, extra vibrant leaves, and the feeling that we can finally have some normalcy after two years in a pandemic. So, before we get too deep into the winter months, I just wanted to share a few favorites from this fall ..read more

Our local high school seniors are graduating this weekend, so it feels like a good time to share some more of their sessions. These portraits are from Callie’s senior session, which she did last October at Heritage Park in Blacksburg. We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather, and I have to say, I really loved the outfits she chose. Overalls are always a cute choice, and her red dress really popped against the green fields of the park. Callie is artistic, friendly, and cheerful, and I know she’s going to do amazing things in the future. Congratulations, Callie, to you and all your seni ..read more

Addie is one of my senior reps for the class or 2022. She’s involved in choir at BHS and is active in her church, as well. But I will always remember her best as the little fourth grader who played the ukulele in our school’s original Minecraft Musical, way back in… maybe… 2014. We split Addie’s session between the grounds of her high school and Heritage Park in Blacksburg, where we found the most gorgeous evening sunlight. Be sure and scroll all the way down on this post so you can see the portraits we got right at sunset in her pretty green dress. The last shot is my favorite. Addie, you’ve ..read more
