Ashley and Ty’s Beach Adventure Couples Session

June 9, 2022

Adventure Couples' Session

Ashley and Ty’s beach adventure couples’ session took place at Westmoreland State Park located in Montross Virginia. Just under an hour from my home location.

The couple is so adventurous and amazing that a traditional park or monument location was not something that I wanted to provide. I wanted something that matched their personality and love for one another, as well making their session that much more personal to them.

We met at the station house that overlooks the river, and then made our 15 min walk down to the beach area location. We hopped over a small stream and sat our bags down and took in all the beauty that was around us. The cliffs just could not be ignored and so we started on one side of the beach where we could have the sun pierce through the trees for that amazing sunlit glow.

I loved everything about this day. The adventure and non-traditional spirit they have is so refreshing to be around. One of my favs to this day! Staying true to their personality and zest for life created the perfect foundation for location scouting and outfit suggestions for the couple.

Hi, I'm Debbie

A self proclaimed badass photographer

No elegant or amazing story to tell here. My life consisted of growing up in the military from the age of 2. Settling in North Carolina, and marrying a Navy Corpsman. Three kids later, and two masters degrees into a career in Special Education and Applied Behavior Analysis, I decided that it was finally time to pursue a lifelong dream of mine, photography.

I started out as wanting to become a Marine Biologist/Oceanographer, and working for National Geographic, swimming with the sharks! Choices made led me down a different path and led me to where I am today. Sitting here, at the computer, writing a mini novel about my life to you.

I started my business in 2019 realizing as my oldest son graduated high school that I missed photography, I missed the interaction I could have with others, and the different lives I was able to be a part of. So, I did as allo beginner photographers did. I dusted off my only old camera, and started using my friends and family as models. Charge next to nothing for sessions, and was able to purchase mentoring sessions, business courses, posing class, 1:1 workshops, and I have learned so much and have grown tremendously within my skill and knowledge. With the help of amazing photography mentors such as Katelyn James, Alina Thomas, Joy Michelle, Megan MacPhail, India Earl, Anni Graham, Jai Long, Maddie Mae (Adventure Instead), and many more, I have been able to create an experience for my couples that is comfortable, relaxed, and crafted specifically to their style and personality
