The Dean Family

As the staff photographer for the South Roanoke Living Magazine, I have the privilege of working with the many wonderful people that make up the South Roanoke neighborhood. For someone who is relatively new to the Roanoke area, it has been such a joy to get to know the community better through photography.

The Dean family is featured on the cover of the June 2018 issue of the SRLiving Magazine, and it was a blast to work with them. When I saw that they were prepared for our session with delightfully coordinated outfits and smiles at the ready, I knew we'd have an easy time getting adorable shots. And they did not disappoint! 

Jennifer and Rob's beautiful backyard, adorable daughter and pup, and relaxed but energetic presence allowed me to just say "Look over here!" and click away. I especially enjoyed following little Elena around the backyard as she played with her toys and ran around chasing who-knows-what. Her hair bow and bangs give her the appearance of the sweetest little doll, but she is also full of spunk!
