THE MOORE FAMILY | PLEASURE HOUSE POINT NATURAL AREA | VIRGINIA BEACH PHOTOGRAPHER

Anyone who knows the Moore family, or has even had the pleasure of being in their company knows what I am about to say is pure FACT!

I swear there wasn’t one moment that Chris wasn’t cracking a joke, making a strange look, or even causing trouble like a little child. (AND I SAY THIS WITH ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD!) Because every moment we all were walking around, capturing his family, and even just setting up a scene he was quick to say something to make everyone start laughing.

But the greatest part of this family… Was how supportive and caring they were with each other. Watching how Chris was quick to pull his wife close to him for those sweet pictures, or how the children would grab on to their Grandma, even when someone just doubted how they were looking this whole family was fast to jump in and encourage one another.

I’ve been around so many families as a photographer and just seeing how this beautiful family could truly laugh, smile, and pick on one another, but be the first to be the support they needed was a treasure to see.

I still look back at this session and realize just how lucky I was to be their to capture their story.

Thank you so much to the Moore family for showing the world around you what ‘FAMILY’ really is and means.

I hope to capture many more of your crazy and loving family in the years to come. ❤

Lifestyle Family Session | Green Run Athletic Complex | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

I just adore when my clients choose to take an everyday family session and make it their very own. Angelina knew that with a family full of boys the best way to show her her love of her family… Was to allow everyone to be themselves. This is their 2nd year coming to Tashena Shaw Photography to capture their adorable family. And just like last year their family did not let me down. Each little one was full of life & pure giggles.

I truly LOVE my lifestyle family sessions. I love when a family doesn’t have to be all clean, perfect, and put together. That they show the world that the beauty of family is the LOVE & laughter you all can share with one another. And this session shows just that!  ❤

Nothing sweeter then sticky lollipop kisses, hugs, and genuine laughter from everyone!

Thank you Angelina for allowing me the chance to capture your beautiful family again.  ❤

FAMILY SESSION | NORTH END OCEAN FRONT | VIRGINIA BEACH PHOTOGRAPHER

When Olga messaged me about capturing her family I was so excited! They couldn’t have picked a better location to capture their family. As these little ones started to bounce around and be little ones, seeing how loved ones pulled close to one another, and just how the perfect golden sun moved it’s way in. We couldn’t have asked for a better session for them. This family was amazing from beginning to end. I can’t wait to have the chance to see them all again and capture more of their story.  ❤

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.)

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. ❤
