A Wonderful Family

One of the best parts of photography is that you get to meet amazing people like the K Family. I've known Dad Eric since he was 2 years old, and a few weeks ago I had the honor of photographing their family. They are going through a tough time now, 5 year old Hayley was diagnosed with neuroblastoma about 5 weeks ago. This amazing family is facing this challenge with grace, dignity & faith that simply blows me away. If you live in C'ville or near by, there is going to be a Bingo Benefit for Hayley at ERVFC on November 16th at 5:00 pm. Here is a facebook link to the event. Bingo Benefit for Hayley  To learn more about Hayley & follow her progress go to Caring Bridge  And now here are a few of my favorite photos from the shoot.

Mothers & Sons

Is there anything more special than the love between a mother & her son? Being the Mother of two grown sons, I know first hand just how wonderful little boys are and how they tug at your heartstrings. I had the privledge of photographing Robyn & Tyler last Sunday & we had a blast. Tyler is precious beyond words and so smart! He has a wonderful spirit & captured my heart very quickly. Here are some of my favorite photos from the session. The bond they share just shines; they made my job so easy. Looking forward to our "Sushi Date" guys! :) Peace, Dottie

Photos from the Eastern Shore

My hubby & I went to the Eastern Shore last month & I'm just now getting around to posting these pics to my blog. Better late than never... it's a great place for photographers. Just be sure & bring your bug spray!

I love the God Rays in this one!

We happened upon this awesome place called Captain Zacks, at first we thought it was just a place to buy fresh fish, but the ladies who own it will cook it up nice & fresh for you. Awesome food at a great price! Who could ask for more!

Hope you all enjoy this brief escape to the shore... Peace, Dottie
