Exposing what dwells within.

My beautiful childhood friend, Christina, is having a baby girl in October! I am so happy that I was able to see her yesterday in Raleigh for a quick lunch and maternity session. Have you ever seen a more stunning mom-to-be? She is such a joy to photograph.

Congratulations, Evan and Christina...we can't wait to meet your little one!

martin family portraits


Brian's family joined us for Thanksgiving this year, and while they were visiting we held a mini family portrait session at Veritas Vineyards. It was cold and blustery, gray and gloomy, but we still managed to have a good time playing in the vines.  Perhaps it was the double flight tasting beforehand?  :)

We found a backhoe.  And of course, we had to climb on it.  Why not?

We also found the last of the fall color...anywhere.

I snuck into the last one...

We photographed one of our favorite foursomes just before the last of the Autumn color disappeared from the trees.  They were so fun to work with, and such a beautiful family!

Thank you, Callahans, for being rockstars. And, for being such good friends!

My view on the left, Brian's on the right. I love the look Steve is giving Kelly.

Ah, this shot kills me!  Such a beautiful family!

I am a little torn, but I think this last image is my favorite. sure do know how to work the camera!

Kath writes the popular healthy living blog, Kath Eats Real Food. She and her husband Matt recently moved to Charlottesville to open a Great Harvest bakery. Kath wanted some headshots to use in marketing materials both for her blog and for bakery promotion, so she and I met last week to chase sunbeams around her front yard. We had a lot of fun discussing good food, camera equipment, and this fabulous city we live in. Here are a few of my favorites from our session. Thanks, Kath!

I met Mark and Adrienne on the day they met each other.  The three of us were about to embark on two years of graduate education in the School of Architecture at UVA, and just happened to strike up a conversation at Spring orientation. Here we are 4-1/2 years later - they are engaged to be married next Summer and I am honored to have been chosen to photograph the day. I can't help but to be excited by the subtle symbology present - the fact that the only other person witness to their first words to each other, the words that started a friendship and eventually a romance, will be the person to capture the moments of their wedding day. 

Brian and I had such fun photographing these two in locations that fit both of their personalities. Below are some of our favorites, but we had an incredibly hard time narrowing them down!  Mark and Adrienne - thank you for indulging us.  We are so looking forward to your wedding next Summer!

Brian and I had such fun with Mark and Adrienne last weekend during their engagement photo session. There are so many beautiful images of the lovely fact, I am overwhelmed by the thought of narrowing down those that I will share on the AHPhoto Blog! In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of B and I in action with some hints at what is to come...

scarpa | feeling like fall

Retail, SpaceandreaComment

Scarpa, a lovely Charlottesville boutique, is about to launch an online store!  My friend Amy asked me to capture some images that embodied the look and feel of the shop - in her words, "yummy" photographs that would draw people in and make Scarpa stand out on the web.  Sarah, Scarpa manager with a background in fashion design, has a wonderful eye for style and was such fun to work with.  This was her modeling debut!  I can't wait to get her outside for a Fall fashion lifestyle shoot.

What do you think...are you ready to shop?

Last Saturday Brian and I spent the afternoon with our good friends Tommy + Kristin.  There was wine tasting.  And a picnic.  And more wine.

The weather was lovely.  It is starting to feel just a touch like Fall around here.  We took advantage and found some vines to play amongst, and after that a corn field. 

It was a good Saturday, one I hope to repeat very, very soon.  Thanks T + K, you were such fun to photograph!

This is Hank.  We call him Hankie.  And Hank-A-Pank.  And Bubba.  And Pooh-Bear.  

I feel a bit sorry for our future children.

Hankie loves his ball.  His Momma loves her new Canon 35mm f/1.4L lens.  We had fun with both in the fading light this evening...
