TABITHA & MARK | COUPLES SESSION | VIRGINIA BEACH PHOTOGRAPHER

There are moments as photographers that we get lost on how to share a story of those we have worked with. NOT because we have nothing to say… Just that we are afraid we won’t share their story as best as they can. So today I have chosen to let Tabitha and Mark share how they met one another. After all this is their story and sometimes your clients can say it better then you ever could. ❤

TABITHA:

“I met Mark in the summer of 1995 I was just 15 years old, on the boardwalk. He was with a old friend I knew from high school. I remember my high school friend stopping to talk to me but I heard nothing he said because I saw Mark and had tunnel vision. The world around me seemed to vanish and the only people that existed was Mark and myself. So I walked right over to him and said “what’s wrong you don’t talk or cat got your tongue” yeah cheesy first line! Good job Tabitha now he will never talk to you. He replied “I can talk.” And I asked him his name. We spent the rest of the day together.

People ask me what made me fall in love with him….. I don’t think I had a choice. I truly believe I fell in love with him the moment I saw him. Before I knew his name I knew I wanted to marry him, there was just something about him and how drawn to him I was. It was like my soul knew.

22 years together 14 of those years married and 2 kids….. he still sets my soul on fire.”

 

MARK:

“I met Tabitha at the beach back in 95. I was hanging out there walking around with a buddy of mine. I was the shy one who didn’t have much to say. We hung out most of that evening. She even stole a piggy back ride along most of the boardwalk. Lol. At the time I didn’t know that later on in life she’d be my wife. We even lost contact after that day. Not long after that I actually moved a block away from her and we reconnected. Actually December 4th she made it official, we were dating.

I fell in love with her, well because of her. Shes beautiful, shes given me all of her love, 2 beautiful kids, shes a very strong and hard working person. We have had a lot of great times together throughout the years. Yeah there has been some rough patches. But it has only made us stronger. I love her more and more every day.”

Kati & Mike | Couples Session | Virginia Beach Photographer

That moment you see your couple walking up to you and you think, “Oh this is going to be fun!”

Kati & Mike were a pleasure to work with. The way they moved around each other like magnets was a treasure to capture. Just looking at these images you can see the LOVE that pours from them for one another. Knowing that by the end of the session we had captured some unique moments they would treasure for years to come is what made me even more excited to get home and finish this session.

I just adore everything about this session… The colors, the little bit of golden light that pours on to them, the way they look at each other, and even the moments you can see their history in each other. It was a real treat to capture.

Thank you so much Kati and Mike for allowing me this chance to capture you both and your love for one another.

(BY THE WAY CRAZY FACTS HERE: I just love learning things about my clients as we are working together. By the time Kati and I walked away from one another we had learned we both are married to a Mike. They both have the ‘manly’ beards, we are the first to admit we love our men with their beards and proudly wouldn’t change that, we have never met a Mike who wasn’t loving and the first to help anyone in need, they love fixing cars, both October Weddings, And we have been with our Mike’s for YEARS, lol.)

Family Session On The Beach | Lynnhaven Fishing Pier | Virginia Beach Photographer

When you have a last moment cancellation and want to fill it fast… This sweet Mama Sibylle came to the rescue. She and her little ones came out to the beach to capture a few images with us. It was such a treat to meet her. Her smile and laugh is contagious and her sweet babies were full of life and laughter just along with her. It’s moments like this one that make me love what I do! And I am so thankful that Sibylle joined us! I can’t wait to work with her family again. ❤

MAMA & LITTLE ONE NURSING SESSION | PLEASURE HOUSE POINT NATURAL AREA | VIRGINIA BEACH PHOTOGRAPHER

Oh the words! When a client can make a photographer speechless when capturing this session. Kirsten and her little angel were so wonderful to capture. Each showing the world how normal breastfeeding should be treated. Showing that we as Mom’s have a gift like any other… Because we not only carry our babies but we have super powers to create milk to nourish our babies.

Watching Kirsten with her baby girl was so sweet… they have a bond that is truly beautiful. Thank you again Kirsten for being so brave and helping show the world what normal is. ❤

Styled Wedding Shoot | The Water Table | Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

I am so thrilled to finally share this shoot with you all !!! Keeping this one a secret has been so hard for me! Only being able to share a sneak peek here and there was challenging. As all my clients know I LOVE sharing my work and styled shoots with everyone.

I got to team up with some unique and creative vendors in the Hampton Roads area for this shoot. Each of them bringing so much beauty, brightness, color, and uniqueness to their work. Helping each of us come together to create a masterpiece unlike any other. This is certainly something I am very proud to have been apart of.

When I asked Misty to help me with a styled shoot she was very quick to make sure it was everything I wanted and was eager to help me put it all together. Misty has such a way with pulling together someone’s thoughts and visions just back asking certain questions… And the outcome as you can see if one like no other! Thank you Misty for showing me just how fun these shoots can be and for helping me pull my vision to life. I am so grateful for you! ❤

Each vendor involved was hand picked and each brought their own style to the table. Such a dream it became! And now I won’t make you all wait any longer… HERE IS OUR STYLED SHOOT AT THE VIRGINIA BEACH WATER TABLE! ❤
