Fidler Girls Motherhood Mini

Maddie is turning TWO in September and it doesn’t feel that long ago that I took her newborn pictures!!  (see post here In her newborn session she slept the entire time and let me tell you, she has definitely livened up!  🙂

Maddie girl is a curly top beauty who is active, curious and independent.  We got to Libby Hill Park and Maddie was instantly on the go!  She wanted to see everything and more than anything wanted to run.  She was fearless as she took off down the concrete hill – this girl will be a force as she grows up and I mean this in the best possible way!  I can see her growing up to be a leader who charges forward and an energy people want to be friends with.  She perfectly embodies one of my FAVORITE quotes “and though she be but little, she is fierce” – Shakespeare (A Midsummer’s Night Dream).

Her mom is a great friend of mine.  We taught together for years and still keep in touch even as I’ve moved to Baltimore.  I love her little family and was really excited to do our Mommy and Me Mini with not just her and Maddie but also her mother, Nancy.  I think it’s really special that Maddie will have images like these to pass to her children.  It makes these images more than just a snapshot and more of a legacy to pass on and I love that!

While I love all of these for the colors and the moments, I think my favorite is the one of Sarah and her mom arm in arm in the background watching Maddie run.  🙂  I love how Nancy is supporting Sarah and they are watching from afar as the next generation takes charge.  This may sound silly but I feel like it really represents motherhood in such a universal way.

Pink and Green, Lilly Pulitzer Mommy and Me

Alysa is my grandlittle and for anyone who was in a sorority (or fraternity) reading this, you know what this means, but if you’ve never been in Greek life than you may not understand.  In fact, Grammarly just told tried to correct me and when I highlighted over the word it said “Unknown word” haha!  Basically, it means she’s in my sorority family and that we spent a lot of time together through college!  Lucky for me, our fun continued after college when she moved back to Richmond!  We did almost everything together!  From setting up classrooms and class materials to sewing, wine tasting, and even being a practice model for me, it was always nice to have Alysa in the same town to hang out with!  Fast forward to now and she is married and has a baby!  It’s crazy to think about how much we’ve grown since the days back at JMU.

Libby Hill Park Family Portraits

It’s crazy to think that the last time I saw the Brown family they were welcoming home Elizabeth as a brand new baby!  You may remember that session and her gorgeous floral bow! Not to mention Joseph’s camera take over and the cuteness that instilled!  This is something I especially love about the milestone package, I get to watch families grow over a year.  I can’t get over how much bigger Elizabeth is and how much older Joseph seems!  Not to mention seeing Elizabeth grow from a sleepy little infant to a baby with rolls for DAYS!  She is ADORABLE!  Joseph becomes more and more active with every session we do and it’s so fun.  At one point I turned to Lindsey and had to say “so sorry for all the screeching!” as Joseph and I played stormtroopers and I died valiantly as he shot me first.  🙂

So fun.  So so so much fun.Read More »
