The Barthold Family | Fall Session | Bayville Farms Park

Oh, the joy it brings me to be able to share with you all this beautiful fall family session. Leave it to this little angel Emma to show us all her wonderful family. At each turn their was giggles and exploring to be had. After all you can’t have a one year old little girl show up to a family shoot without some exploring along the way.

I had the pleasure months before to to be able to capture Emma’s 1st Birthday party. And of course Emma on this fall day made sure to show even more of her personality with us all. Those smiles and giggles were a joy to see and capture. I can’t wait to see what this year hold for this family. Each one to beautiful, loving, and full of joy.

The perfect fall session! ❀


The Hughs Family Session | Bayville Farms Park | Falls Sessions

Oh how I love when my families return for more moments together… Each so unique and full of character. And my sweet family here made sure to bring the laughter with them… Showing us all just how amazing The Hughs family is. πŸ™‚

The whole session was full of laughter between Father and Son. Each taking their turn to make their Queen of their home laugh and smile at every turn. Whether that be tossing acorns her way, photo-bombing her images, or just by making silly faces.

I can’t help but laugh as I write about their story. I can just see that day and watch how this Queen would laugh and tease them back. A family full of love and adventure. Each showing their own side and personality. And of course in the end they were full of hugs and kisses. Knowing that they would have to make sure their Queen was safe and loved.

I know many families who joke about their uniqueness and beauty… But The Hughs family will ALWAYS stand out as one of the most lovable, sweet, and carefree session to date.

It’s families such as this one that make me enjoy capturing stories and moments I know my families will forever treasure. A blessing the Tashena Shaw Photography Family will forever be grateful for. ❀


Erin + Nick | Session In The Rain | Virginia Beach Ocean Front

We waited all month for this session.Β  The day came…Β  And we woke up to a day full of thunderstorms.Β  (And although if you ask anyone I know…Β  I’m a HUGE fan of thunderstorms!)Β  But that day I was so upset.Β  I was looking forward to seeing and working with Erin again.Β  But I knew I would have to put this session on hold for the safety of my clients.Β  After all no one is going to want to dodge lightning bolts while smiling in the rain,Β  lol.Β  But then as the time got closer to capture these two…Β  We saw that our summer thunderstorm turned into just a rainy day only.

So after a few message back and forth and realizing these two love birds wouldn’t let a little rainy day get in the way.Β  When these two were willing to brave the rain to go out and capture some images with me…Β  Well those are some AWESOME clients.Β  I was so excited to see that Erin and Nick were more than happy to meet me in Virginia Beach just to go play in the rain together.

It was a short session…Β  Maybe 20 minutes.Β  And you can’t really tell by most of these images that Erin and Nick were being poured on.Β  Yet these two kept the smilies and giggles coming.Β  They made a gloomy session turn in to a bright mini-session full of rainbows and butterflies.

I hope that I am blessed to work with Erin and Nick again in the future!Β  If you are reading this Erin & Nick…Β  I can’t thank you two enough for coming out and sharing your smiles in the rain with me.Β  πŸ™‚
