Once upon a time years ago now when my business was brand new, Regan and Strom volunteered to be the models for one of my very first styled shoots… it was a military homecoming styled shoot and they were perfect for it because Strom was Regan’s soldier pen pal!! Yes their story is as sweet and romantic as it sounds. :)
Fast forward and Regan contacted me to see if I could photograph a maternity session for her since they were expecting their first baby… we met up in Charlottesville for the shoot one morning and it was a dream!! They were moving away on military orders and wouldn’t be back to Virginia for several more years.
But we kept up on Instagram and when she messaged me saying they might be moving back to Virginia, I was so excited! Now that first baby has grown into the most adorable and precocious 4 year old and they have a second sweet baby, Cecie! We love these friends and are so grateful they live here now! I couldn’t resist the chance to photograph their first Fall in Virginia after living in the dessert for a few years and missing it. I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites!! I know you’re going to love this sweet family too!
