In the past, I have always taken Sterling and my pictures. We set up a tripod in a gorgeous area, connect our wireless clicker, set the manual focus and “click, click, click” we snag the shot we want. We’ve done for major celebrations like announcing our pregnancy, the gender of Finley, paying off our car loan etc. We’ve also done this every year for our family holiday cards since getting married. But not this year.Read More »
It’s that time of year again! I feel as though it’s Christmas Eve and I’m wrapping up the final gifts from Santa for Finley to put under the tree. All the while SO excited for the next day and celebration! This is because it’s officially time for FALL MINI SIGN UPS!
Fall Minis are my absolute favorite time of year for photography because I LOVE seeing my returning families year after year and meeting new families! This year the dates will be November, 5th, 6th, 12th, and 13th with 22 sessions available.Read More »
This post is definitely very special to me seeing as this gorgeous new mom is a dear friend of mine! Beth and I were Alpha Phi sorority sisters at JMU back in the day and when we both moved to Richmond Virginia we lived together in the Fan! She was in Sterling and my wedding and now that we are back in Richmond, it is such a gift to get to reconnect as new moms!
Have y’all ever met a bug doctor before? Well, I have! It’s true!
I got to this session a few weeks back, stepped toward the car and was introduced to Even, a three-year-old self-proclaimed bug doctor. As you can imagine this naturally sparked my interest because I mean hello – science! After some more inquiring I learned that he performs operations on bugs when they are very sick. – Just the cutest! Read More »
Yall have been asking for it – waiting for it – excited for it, and now it’s HERE! The May Minis SNEAK PEAK!! Each of these sessions will get their own blog post in the upcoming weeks but for now, I wanted to show off just a taste of how GORGEOUS and fun our sessions were this past weekend.Read More »
I love doing newborns with a family for a second (or third… or fourth + ) time! It’s awesome because they already know what to expect, the poses, the timeline, the helpful tips to keep the baby sleepy. It’s a dream scenario and one of the reasons I love working with families because I get to see them time after time. Read More »
Oh hey Richmond, miss me? Well I MISS YOU! So much so that I’m doing not just one day of minis but TWO days of Christmas minis in Richmond this year. 🙂
I posted back on Instagram a few weeks ago about where to do the minis and the response was overwhelmingly for Richmond! It happens that I’ll been in town two weekends in a row for other sessions and it worked out perfectly to host my minis on those weekends! I CAN’T WAIT! I am so excited to see some familiar faces and especially the littles!!Read More »
We met early at Forest Hill Park for this session which was great because it got HOT that day! I got to the park a little early and saw it, the most gorgeous tree with the most gorgeous low hanging branches! SWOON! We spent almost the entire time in this one spot. Margaret wore a purple dress which popped off the background and showed off her baby bump so beautifully.
While this session was a mini and shorter in time than a typical session we were able to go a lot of images and variety! We were even able to incorporate their dog!! My favorite part of the session though was playing with Scarlett at the end as she picked me flowers and brought them over to me as little gifts! Read More »
It’s always a good sign when you roll up to a session to meet the family for the first time and you connect instantly with the family and kids. I arrived to Forrest Hill Park and walked up to meet Kelsie and her husband Brent and within seconds their gorgeous daughter Maddie did what I always hope the kiddos will do, she opened her arms and reached out to me. AHHH my little heart almost exploded!! She got passed over to me and I knew in that moment – this was going to be a GREAT session! Read More »
This girl is one of my favorite people!! She joined our science team at Quioccasin my third year teaching and we became fast friends. We would laugh our way through the obscure moments, cry through the tough moments (or at least I would) and she always had starbursts for me to eat. I’ll never forget when she told me she was pregnant with Zack in the drive thru of Chick Fila as she looked at me and said “Oh yeah so.. I’m pregnant”. I SCREAMED with delight! Fast forward and she welcomes Zoe to the family making this one cute family of four.Read More »
