Twelve long years of school finally come to and end!!! I have watched this young lady grow up over the past 10 years and I am so excited to see how she has blossomed and grown into this beautiful woman.  She will be starting her schooling all over next year at Liberty University, her parents Alma Mater, and couldn’t be more excited.  

We had a great session, even if we did get attacked by gnats and bugs.  :)  Kendal rocked every minute of her session and her portraits turned out amazing.  

I am so very glad that we did a few family portraits at the end as well.  It’s important to do family portraits before your kids go off to college, who knows what the next few years may bring. :)  There might be additional family members, people may move away and spending time together as a whole family may come less and less.  It’s so important to take family portraits when you have the chance to capture your family, as your kids are born and your family is growing, as they are growing up and toothless and all legs and arms, and as they are embarking on adulthood and about to go spread their wings.   It’s moments and milestones that we remember, but havign portraits to show us those moments is such a treasure!

So, thank you Kendal and the Farnsworth clan for allowing me to capture these moments or your family and this amazing milestone.  Kendall, I am so proud of the woman you have become.  <3 <3

Stunning.  Energetic.  Happy.  Athletic.  Fun.  Beautiful.  All words to describe the lovely Beca.
We had such a great time on both of our sessions!  Why more than one session?  Well sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t check with me and she does her own thing!  Halfway though our beach session, the wind went CRAZY and Beca’s beautiful hair was everywhere, sand was flying into my camera and we were being blown over!! We just weren’t going to get the beautiful sunset pictures we wanted, so we scheduled a second shoot that thankfully provided a beautiful, windless, sunset.

Beca, I can’t wait to see how your last year in high school goes and what next year holds for you.  I haven’t know you long but I do know you are a dedicated, beautiful, hard working soul and I know you will achieve whatever goals you set your mind too!  Work hard this year, but enjoy every last minute of high school while you can, you deserve it!

I have been waiting to photograph Chris for almost year and I am so excited we finally managed to get it on the schedule!  Chris had an insanely busy Senior year and he killed it on the Cox High School football team. I even got to go out for a few games and I have to say, I feel so much pride seeing my Seniors excel in what they do!  Next year, Chris is heading off to East Carolina University and I couldn’t be more proud of him! 

For our session, we headed to what Virginia Beach is known for… the beach!  We started off in the trees and Chris rocked his pride for his upcoming college days!  Mom, Donna, and dad, Matt, stuck around for a few pictures as well, rocking their pirate gear too.  :)   We then moved down to the beach and had an incredible time.  As always, Virginia Beach provided and incredible sunset and Chris pulled out his inner model and we created some incredible images.  

Chris, enjoy your last few weeks of high school.  Enjoy your next four years of college (but not too much- you still have to go to classes!)   Never give up chasing your dreams and occasionally take time to look back at these images and remember who you were, what you wanted in life, how you saw your future, etc.  You are officially an adult now- but you still have so much life left to live and lessons to learn.  I have confidence you’ll do an amazing job and I can’t wait to see what your future holds.  Thanks for trusting me with your Senior Portraits.  I have so enjoyed getting to know you this past year!  :)
