Megan & Leon Family Photos - Norfolk Virginia Beach Photographer

Megan and I had so much trouble finding a day that worked with her husband's Coast Guard schedule and her little ones' schedule and my photography schedule, but I am SO glad we were able to get something on the calendar! This family was so much fun to work with, lots of laughs and cuddles, as you can see in this post. Thanks for sharing your Saturday afternoon with me guys! You have such a beautiful family!

Oakley 1-Year Cake Smash - Norfolk Virginia Beach Child Photographer

 What a handsome little man I got to photograph this weekend. Such a special shoot as he turns ONE YEAR OLD! I absolutely loved capturing all of Oakley's little expressions and personality. At times he loved the camera (mostly the flash) and at times he didn't want anything to do with it haha He's so sweet! I can't wait to take more pictures of this little guy in the future =)

 Momma certainly knows what she's doing with this cake! So cute!!

First bite of cake!! And he's not so sure about it haha

 And the final result of our cake smash messiness! =)

Claire & Ray Homecoming - USS Harry Truman - Norfolk Virginia Photographer

The USS Harry Truman homecoming was SO exciting to witness. My husband and I are going through our first deployment and I KNOW we will be equally as emotional as this beautiful family was getting their husband, brother and son back this week. The Truman pulled into the pier mid-morning and we were SO excited for the big reuniting moment! There were so many amazing people being reunited with their loved ones all around us, we couldn't help but get more and more anxious and emotional as the time went on. Finally I hear "OH MY GOSH THERE HE IS!" and before he could even make it to us, Claire ran to him to claim her second first kiss. What an amazing moment as the whole family was reunited. Thank you so much for including me in this precious time. And a huge "WELCOME HOME" to Ray and all the other sailors of the USS Harry Truman strike group!
