Gritts Farm Pumpkin Patch Session WV/ Tabitha Stover Photography

I have been wanting to do a Pumpkin Patch Photo session for so long! I love fall and  when Sarah asked me to  capture Claire’s quest to find the perfect pumpkin I was so excited! We went to Gritts Fall Fun Farm’s Pumpkin patch and it was the perfect place to hunt for the perfect pumpkin! If you haven’t checked out the fall fun farm you should! They have so many pumpkins and Claire was ready to take them all home! I had a blast trying to keep up with Claire and Sarah.  Claire has the best personality and couldn’t be cuter. I love the joy that goes along with finding the perfect pumpkin! I loved the snuggly moments and so much  mommy and daughter love! I would document families playing on farms everyday if I could! I love capturing these real moments! I also have to take a moment to talk about how Claire’s boots are ridiculously adorable. Thanks  Claire and Sarah for such a fun session!

Braelynn’s Fairy Photo Shoot

I am so happy to have awesome support from friends and family in pursuing my photography dreams! I was super pumped when my friend Megan got ahold of me to do Braelynn’s  fairy photo shoot with her adorable daughter ! All to often we overlook the magic that goes on all around us! You can see it in every child’s eyes!  Little ones grow too fast and capturing magical moments like this  is what I love! We took to the park to chase fairies! Not only did Braelynn put up with the heat, but she kept us laughing the whole time! I feel like she is growing too fast, so I am thankful I got to capture these sweet magical moments!

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” Roald Dahl

Brotherly Love Photo Shoot

I’ve known Kelsey for a while and she is awesome, so its no surprise that with awesome parents, these would be two awesome little dudes! I was so pumped when she wanted a little Brotherly Love Photo Shoot!  I have never laughed harder during a shoot! Watch out little ladies because these two are gonna be trouble! Parker knows how to work the camera and is a natural model with his many expressions! He also decided to bust out some booty shaking dance moves that caught us all off guard! haaaaaa! Brody is equally adorable! Take a second to soak up the cuteness of their cute outfits with matching kicks. It melted my heart seeing how these two care for each other! Parker is such a good big brother! I didn’t even ask him to kiss his little brother, he just did it on his own! Cuteness overload!

Belcher Family Photo Session

The perfect morning for a shoot at Wine Cellar Park in Dunbar with the Belcher family! I loved meeting up with an old friend and getting pictures of  her beautiful family!  Its hard to believe not too long ago we were dressing up as spice girls and now we have little ones together. I will avoid posting the spice girl photos. You can tell that Kennedy is there whole world!  I loved chasing little Kennedy around the park, she was a blur, she has running in her blood just like her parents! She loved running across the bridges and pointing out the birds! The only time she slowed down was for  a little peek a boo!

Maxon’s First Year Photos and Cake Smash

I was relieved to get a break from the rain and to get to spend some time with the Beckett family! I had a blast doing Maxon’s First Year Photos and Cake Smash! Max is every photographer’s dream, ADORABLE baby who loves chocolate cake! I knew this shoot was going to be all smiles from the start. Max’s sister Maddie walked up to me and said “You can’t see my underwear in these shorts. BAaaahaaaa. I told her that was always a plus! Me and Max are on the same level when it comes to chocolate cake. Max doesn’t play games. He went hard and dominated that cake! Sadly, I look very similar when I finish a cake, but not so adorable! He was such a joy to shoot! The whole family was involved and that made it even more fun! Annie had the cutest outfits and props for Max! I loved that the chair had been passed down for generations and the bibs with the tool belt were hand made! Chris created a sweet chalkboard scene with Max’s name on it, too bad Max was more interested in a mud puddle close by. I learned quickly that Max is a champion turbo speed crawler! I had no idea babies could scoot so fast! Maddie was such a good big sis helping out, she kept blowing Max bubbles the whole time.   I love a good cake smash! Thanks for allowing me to capture these sweet memories!

I love nature and I love capturing magical moments with the love of my life, my sweet baby WIllow!  I have been wanting to do an enchanted forest  fairy photo session since she was born! She has cute little pointed fairy ears, so she was made for this! I had a blast following her around on her adventures playing/ eating the flowers! I love doing enchanted forest and fairy themed photo sessions and look forward to doing many more!

What Is Glamping?

Glamping Tabitha Stover Photography   

I have been a fan of camping and backpacking for a long time, but I was just recently introduced to the term Glamping! My bffab ( best friend forever and beyond) just bought a tent and I was so pumped to go camping together! Then she informed me that she would not be going camping, but she would be Glamping instead.   What? I actually had to Google it. What is Glamping, you ask? Its glamorous camping! Yap, you heard me right. Haaaaa!  Because camping is oh so glamorous, sleeping on the ground, bugs and all.  I was a bit skeptical at first, not the most practical   past time. But, the more I researched, and by research I mean the more I looked on pinterest, the more I was intrigued. Glamping combines your traditional camping set up with  a luxurious twist and some of the convinces of home. I decided to give Glamping a go and surprise my husband with a little Glamping under the stars set up!

Along with camping I also love junking and repurposing old items, so Glamping gives me another use for some of my favorite finds! I like to decorate with rustic elements and add a little feminine flare to the items to create a romantic cozy space! You can go as simple or as fancy as you like with Glamping. I took four twigs and crisscrossed them to create a tepee and reinforced the structure with some zip ties and twine. I covered the structure by making a patchwork quilt out  of old blankets, sheets, and a lace table cloth. You can even Glamp up an old yard sale tent! A few elements are key to Glamping it up a notch !  One of the universal elements of Glamping is having a comfy spot to sleep. It’s amazing how a sheet and a comforter can transform an air mattress! This beats being confined in a sleeping bag any day! Throw on a couple pillows and you have a luxurious nest!

Side tables can also up your glamping game.  I used an old crate I found at a flea market for 3 bucks and an old chest I found at goodwill.

My favorite Glamping accessory was the chandelier! I took an old lantern and  I added some strands of glass beads to Glamp it up!You can add battery operated led lights from Hobby Lobby to make it functional.

I also added a rug to make the spot even more cozy and comfortable! I would love to see pictures on how you put your own flare on glamping, so post away! I think this would be an awesome set up for an engagement photo session so I can’t wait to use it! The whole family enjoyed!
