Hey, I'm Stori!
I'm not just a photographer-
I'm a wife and a mother too so I know just how truly important your time is.
I picked up my first camera nearly 18 years ago and the rest is history.
I am a family photographer serving the Peninsula side of Hampton Roads, Va.
I specialize in capturing all of the moments from maternity to newborn to watching your family grow bigger.
Parenthood is one of life's greatest blessing and every milestone should not be missed.
I've always wanted to be a photographer but becoming a mother made me feel it even more that we don't get time back. They grow SO fast.
A little bit more about me...
I don't drink coffee or alcohol. I don't condone it, It's just a personal choice. I love mountains and all things nature. If I wasn't a portrait photographer, I would most definitely want to work for National Geographic or do something like that. I'm most inspired by God's creation. We are a homeschool family and being my son's teacher has it's challenges but it's the coolest thing that we do. He is truly amazing. I am a total elder emo. I think that's what the kids are calling it. Our black lab is my best friend, just don't tell my human best friend. Fitness is very important to me and I've been prioritizing it now for 9 years. Working out is my therapy for sure. My husband retires from the Navy soon and we have hopes of settling down and building roots in Tennessee. The mountains are calling us.
Some of my favorite things....driving at dusk with the windows down while blaring a good song, my son's hugs, the beach at sunrise, a good lake view, any and all Viking shows, authentic Greek food, game nights with my husband and son, and a good black baggy sweater.
Last but not least...
Mamas, I know you do so much for your family but I hope I can make your photo session experience with me feel like you've had a bit of a break. Your session should feel comfortable, cozy, and authentic. I don't want you stressing! Let dad tell the fart jokes, hug your babies, dance with your husband, & let the kids be themselves and explore a little. Take a breath, this shouldn't be work for you!
I truly hope you choose me as your photographer because you feel it in your heart that I am the best choice for your family.
Thank you for being here!
