sarah… November 13, 2013   

Sarah and I have known each other for a few years.  I was so happy when she wanted me to capture her senior portraits!  We met at a local farm and had a lot of fun.  Sarah attends Albemarle High School and is very active in the band program.  Sarah has a cute smile and a huge heart!  

Thank you Sarah for a great session full of laughter!  I was glad you got to hear the donkey talk to us that day!  Great memories.  Good luck in all that you do, can’t wait to see where you go next!



  graffiti fun November 11, 2013   

This is another family I anxiously look forward to working with each year.  I have watched this little cutie go from a tiny toddler to a very adorable kindergartener!  We decided to have a little fun with some graffiti this year!  I just love this fun location!  We played, we scootered, we had fun!  Thanks to this family for allowing me to capture your memories year after year…after year!  You are beautiful!  xoxo andrea


  bright colorful fall fun! November 10, 2013   

Another family I’ve worked with for many years.  These boys are growing up so fast!  I love the closeness and connection I feel with these guys! They love each other a lot and it’s so evident!  We were blessed with beautiful fall foliage and AMAZING fresh green grass (thank you Robert!)  There is some much awesome energy in these pix!  I hope you enjoy! xoxo andrea  Oh, and by the way guys, next time I am totally sticking around for that beer :)


  fun at the river house    

Love this family.  Love these boys.  I’ve worked with them for 5 years now.  They are adorable and fun.  I love that these boys know me and look forward to seeing me each year.  They are truly precious!  Enjoy this beautiful family and their fun photos! xo andrea



  olivia November 7, 2013   

Olivia and I had so much fun on a windy fall afternoon!  She was such a trooper as we shivered through our session!  There are times when I meet a senior and really connect with them.  I loved how Olivia warmed up through her session in front of the camera.  It was awesome to watch her confidence grow throughout the session.  By the end we were cracking up, running through fields, and squeezing every last bit of sunlight out of the sky.

Olivia you are a beautiful young lady inside and out and I hope you can see that too!  Good luck in all that you do and keep in touch!




  fall farm fun! November 4, 2013   

This was my second year working with this sweet family.  The second year is always better–people just get how the shoot goes, they trust me a little more, and they are a bit more relaxed.  This shoot was no exception!  Last year’s shoot was great–but, this year we just jumped right in and got to work.  They were comfortable with me and it shows!  We had so much fun at their lovely farm house (which I am only a little bit jealous of )  :)   Their oldest two are twins–and it’s so fun to see their bond.  I truly enjoyed capturing this family’s love for each other!  The colors and light were perfect and it was a beautiful day to boot!  Enjoy!  xoxo andrea


  charlotte & ivy November 1, 2013   

This was SUCH a fun shoot!  We shot at the beautiful, stunning grounds of King Family Vineyards.  This was a commercial shoot for an amazing business that offers gorgeous home furnishings and accessories.  Let’s just say I now have a new shop to obsess over!  The business is called Charlotte & Ivy:  an online home furnishing curator business with exquisite products to boot.   Check our our beautiful shots of their beautiful things!  Oh, and make sure to visit their website and check out more of what they offer–truly stunning!  Enjoy!  xo andrea



  sydney… October 29, 2013   

Met this sweet girl at Henley’s Apple Orchard and we had so much fun together.  Sydney is a Class of 2014 student at Monticello High School!  I loved getting the chance to talk to her and to laugh together.  She rocked this location with her sweet smile and simple style! I loved capturing her bright beautiful eyes in our close ups!

Good luck in all you do this year Sydney!  Keep in touch and enjoy every moment!



  the charlottesville ballet    

Loved working with the Charlottesville Ballet again.  This was my second year photographing them, and it’s always so much fun!  We got some amazing shots at their fabulous new location–such yummy natural light!  If you haven’t been to see them yet, you really must–it’s such a treat.  Or, better yet, they offer classes for kiddos–and I’ve heard great things about these classes.  Sign your little ballerina up for one of their fun classes–I am sure she’d love it!  Enjoy these beautiful dancers!  xo andrea

  beautiful light and beautiful people! October 28, 2013   

We had such a beautiful fall day on the day of this shoot.  The light and the weather was just perfect!  We shot at one of my old faves–Ivy Creek.  These guys drove all the way from Washington DC to work with me.  It’s always an honor when people make time to travel from afar to work with me!  The last time I worked with these peeps  was about 5 years ago–their kiddos were so much smaller and now they’re all grown up.   As a family photographer I definitely am reminded how quickly children grow up as I see my tiny subjects grow up year after year!  Enjoy this sweet beautiful family’s pix!  xo andrea
