With Love

Valentine’s Day seemed like the absolute perfect day to launch a new brand of photography in our Studio especially designed for women…

There was a time when giving a photograph was a true gift.  There was meaning behind the gift and it was always signed from the one giving it.  It was a gift of endearment.  It was giving a part of yourself, to someone else, someone you loved.  Many times it was sent to those who were far away, and it was given to those we hold close in our hearts.  We wanted to be remembered and fondly thought of by the recipient.

Sadly, as with many things in our times, we have seen traditions and even sentiment fade with the years.  So many people don’t even print their photographs, and depend on technology to keep them preserved and archived.  Many of us haven’t written a personal message with paper and pen since the day the phone/computer keyboard emerged.  And our youngest generation is not even being taught the penmanship to write their name!

“With Love,” is our way of bringing back a beautiful sense of romanticism and feelings of nostalgia, expressing feelings and emotional significance through the art of photography.  “With Love” is a photo session with the intended purpose of being a gift:

It may be a gift from you to your husband, boyfriend, or fiancé.

It may be a gift from your husband, boyfriend, or fiancé to you.

It may be a gift from you to your children – existing in photographs for them.

And, it may even be a gift from you to yourself!

Whatever reason is the driving force behind the desire, have the courage to take the steps to make it happen. And, we promise, we will be there every step of the way.  We will coach you with wardrobe and what will have you

your absolute best.  Our Studio is a comfortable space, and we’ll do our very best to make you feel at ease and at home.

Give us a call soon and let us design a session just for you…With Love!

Heritage Portraits

One of the things we enjoy most here at JV Photography is capturing the joy, genuineness, and bond of a mother and her child/children.  There is nothing more beautiful than this special, unique bond.  This session is part of what we call our “Heritage Series of Portraits” We would love to capture this special memory for you and your family.

Molly’s a Senior

We’ve gotten to know Molly over the last several years and just recently had the privilege of capturing her High School Senior pictures.  Molly is a natural beauty, both inside and out, and is a pleasure to be around.  We so enjoyed the afternoon at her Mimi’s farm with Molly, her Mimi, Darlene, her parents, Steve & Kimberly, and her friend, Gaylyn.  We know the future holds exciting things for Molly and we can’t wait to see what the Lord chooses to do with her.  All the best to you, Molly!

New Life, New Joy

This precious couple came to us to have maternity photos taken the very day before she was in labor!  We had a wonderful time getting to know them and then getting to meet their sweet new addition just one week later.  What a perfect little angel he is!  That hair, those sweet cheeks and so much to love all wrapped up in a bundle of only 7 lbs.  We so love what we are blessed to get to do!

Beautiful Music

We recently had the honor of photographing 3 very gifted Christian musicians for some promotional shots.  They each sing individually with amazing voices, but put the three of them together and they make some seriously beautiful music!! We picked one of the hottest days of the year for the shoot, but we had so much fun and so many laughs that we almost forgot about the heat…almost!  It was a joy to photograph them, but is an even greater joy to call them friends.

Brannan Family

It was a beautiful morning spent on the shores of Douglas Lake at a friend of the family’s home.  It was a photographer’s dream space with all of the gorgeous landscape and vignettes for perfect images!  We so appreciate them allowing us to invade their space for the morning, before the temperatures rose for the day. It’s always fun to photograph this family and see how the boys grow and change with each year.  Typical boys, they always want to be done with the pictures mom wants, and hurry and get into their football gear for the pictures they want!  All in all, I think we made both sides happy!!  Thanks Brannan Family!

It was a lovely afternoon at The Barn at Chestnut Springs…But the most lovely part of it was spending the afternoon with a dear friend taking beautiful pictures to use for promoting the ministry God has blessed her with – GodSong Ministries.  We had such a wonderful time being surrounded by the gorgeous grounds of the Barn.  Dear friends; sweet laughter; beautiful scenery; gorgeous images..some of the richest blessings of the Lord.
