Not your skinny no fat latte kinda photographer!

My photo
I am a down to earth kinda gal with a camera! I love to shoot anything and everyone, not something you can typically say about your job. I am from a small beach town near Jacksonville, Florida, and wouldn't have had it any other way. The beach is my second home--my retreat and inspiration. I have been called charismatic yet laid back---its a wonderful blend! My style includes bold colors, and fresh black and whites--classic meets contemporary with a twist of that beach lifestyle~

Hadley Family--Newport News family photographer

I had the honor of photographing the Hadley family this past weekend now that Chase is coming up on his first birthday. It was so heartwarming to see and capture the love that these two parents have for their son. It was easy for me to see, because I can only imagine that some of their glances toward Chase are ones that I have given my own son time and time again. I was even privy to special moments between mom and dad as they watched their son experiencing new textures, smells, and sights. Little moments passed between them that you could almost see their hearts swelling with pride and love. These are the moments that make my work so amazing and worthwhile. Time flies too quickly as I have learned, so please take these moments and cherish them. To the Hadley family, you are beautiful and wonderful! Thank you so much for allowing me to experience these moments with you.

Here Comes the Bride.....Erin Colleen Photography, Newport News engagement photographer

Meet Starla and Scott....
Happy, wonderful, and super FUN couple. They are scheduled to say their vowes June 13th so to get prepared we had a Fab-O engagement session. We took a hike over to Yorktown and between several different niches, found some great spots to shoot. I have to say, I was so proud of Scott because he was in long sleeves and long pants! I KNOW he had to be burning up. We had record highs again today (around 91 degrees) and even though it had cooled off consideraby, it was still in the mid 80s when we went out. Not a complaint was heard from him at all! You ROCK Scott!!

All in all these two were up for anything and did it with a smile on their faces. They are my kind of clients! Climb some rocks? Sure! Roll around in the grass? Why not!? Jump off a dock into the water? ---Say what?! Okay so I couldnt convince them to do the last one but we still had a great time.

Congratulations Starla and Scott!!!
