Fall family portraits were a success! This year I hosted Fall Mini Portrait Sessions at the Kellam Estate in Virginia Beach, Virginia for the very first time. I had SO much fun! Fall family mini portrait sessions will now be an annual occurrence! I held the mini sessions over two days to provide the opportunity to serve as many families as possible.
We were off to a bit of a rocky start the first Sunday. Unfortunately, we had to reschedule due to rain. Lesson learned: weather in Virginia is crazy when you schedule family portraits, so build in a rescheduling date! The following Sunday also had a rainy forecast all day, but we made the most of what turned out to be a beautiful day!
I want to thank all of the families that stuck with me through the weather for their Fall family portraits! Meeting everyone was so special, and I hope I captured special memories for you and your family. This year has been crazy! What better way to remember the good things and this season of your life?
A big thank you to the Kellam Estate in Virginia Beach, Virginia as well! Thank you for sharing your beautiful venue for these fall family portraits! Below are a few of my favorites from each mini session. Some families are not pictured out of their request for privacy.

In fact, he was going to propose on a beautiful overlook after a long sunrise hike. The rain had other plans, though. They tried to hike through the mud and slippery […]
Jesse and Jean-Luc first met when they were just kids. At 15 years old, they were stirring up trouble with their friends. Those same friends stood by their sides on this day as family. The sun was out, the sheep roamed the farm, and these two were finally getting married at this beautiful vineyard and farm!

He arrived early with his mother and brother. He was smiling ear to ear but you could still tell he was a little nervous. They stepped up to the altar, and looking down the beach you could see his beautiful bride make her way through the sand with her father. Victoria and Nate vowed to […]
The sun peeked up over the sand. It was the most perfect day for a newborn and family session on the beach! Heather walked toward me with with a small bundle of joy and two cheerful pups. The morning was pristine. When Heather first contacted me for a newborn session, I told her I did […]
It is the day before Thanksgiving. There has been little travel this year with and an international pandemic. But today, everyone is together for family portraits! The family has grown by two. On this day, we captured all of the blessings. I really couldn’t have imagined a better way to lead into Thanksgiving than to […]
One Snapchat sent by accident, and that was all it took. Isn’t it just perfect when social media brings two people together that way? Caitlin and Jason are two of the most easy going people I have ever met. They were down for anything for their Great Falls engagement session. Want to climb some rocks? […]

"Brigitte is AMAZING` This was our first photo shoot as a couple and with our new puppy. Brigitte was super patient with us and made us feel so comfortable in order to get the most gorgeous pictures ever. If you are thinking about getting professional photos taken, definitely talk to Brigitte! She scouted out the best location and had multiple spots around the area to take a great variety of photos.
