Meet the Photographer

 My name is Lisa and I'm so happy you decided to stop by and check out my site.  While you're here, let me take a minute to tell you a little about myself. I'm an only child and mother of two boys.  Originally from North Philadelphia, Virginia has been my home for the past 20 years.  I went to an all girls' high school in downtown Philly and love a good cheese steak and gangster movie.

    I have been taking pictures as long as I can remember.  I got my first camera at the age of 10.  I have always loved the reaction of people after they look at their photos for the first time. 

     About five years ago, I took my passion for photography and turned it into something more.  Over the past five years I have photographed weddings, high school seniors, portraits, maternity sessions and dozens of events.  I have also done some photography charity work. My photography has taken me places I never thought I would go and has opened my little world to new and exciting experiences. Along the way, I have had some wonderful clients.  I am grateful for each person that allowed me to capture their most precious memories. 

       Through the years I have learned to appreciate the importance of a photography.  A photo captures a moment in time that is special to you and your love ones. A photo brings happy memories of a wedding, the couple's first kiss, the first dance, and cutting the wedding cake. Or it can bring memories of joy of the birth of a child, the baby first smile, the first birthday cake, or the baby's first steps. Photos also brings a smile to your face when you come across a photo of a love one no longer with you. A photo will help keep that memory alive forgive. 

     When I'm at a photo shoot I aim to give my clients the best session I can.  I want their experience to be like no other.  When my client looks back at their photos, I want them to not only to remember the special occasion for the session but also remember their session with me with a smile.  

     Photographing a wedding is exciting and like no other event.  Each couple has their own way of making their love story unique.  Each wedding gives me the chance to capture true love as the couple start their lifetime together. It is extremely rewarding to be a part of the beginning of fairy tale that came true. 

     Maternity sessions are special to me.  It is a time to celebrate a new and exciting adventure that is about to begin. A new life. Pregnancy is one of the most phenomenal time in a woman's life and I want to capture all the emotions and anticipation during this time.  

       Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me.  Hopefully we will be working together soon.
