How has another year already gone by? This year was huge for me! I learned so much about myself and grew in ways that were inconceivable to 2016 Virginia. My work has transformed into a style that I am so proud of. It has been an evolution of finding my voice as a photographer. I've been so blessed to work in commercial projects, be printed, and see my work on the cover of a magazine. I've photographed weddings, new babies, love, life, and even travelled overseas to Ireland. This year has been a year of magical growth and I've loved every minute of it! I've decided to compile a list of my own personal favorite shots of 2017 and hope you enjoy them!
I had the pleasure of photographing some of our best friends as they became husband and wife. It was so beautiful and such an amazing honor to document Brian and Jessica's love.
This year I tried something a little different and offered specialized unicorn sessions with the help of Kim and Artie from CTRP. I donated $500 from these awesome sessions to the program. Seeing the kiddos delight as Artie transformed into a unicorn was so worth it and special. Can't wait to offer them again in 2018.
Gorgeous Whitney and baby Addison were on the top of my list for favorites this year. Mother nature cooperated in ways neither of us could have even dreamed of. Little Addison is extremely blessed to be born into so much love.
Jacquelyn and Karl had such a beautiful and intimate elopement in Columbia, SC. Bearing witness to their love was an incredible honor.
So, here's to 2018 in all it's opportunity and glorious newness. May it bring you prosperity, adventure, and so much love.
