Happy Birthday! {Richmond, Virginia Child and Family Portrait Photographer}

Elise is 1! She was very squirmy and fast and big sister wasn’t the most cooperative, so I was pleased with how her session turned out!

So very thankful that I have been able to capture the past two years for this family~

First up, a look at sweet Elise from her newborn, 7 month and year sessions!

elise all year

And her adorable Very Hungry Caterpillar themed first birthday session!

I just love these girls and their amazing parents! As I approach my 6th anniversary, they have been by my side and on the other side of my lens the whole way! From their engagement photos to capturing their sweet girls, I feel honored by their trust and friendship.

Kenley is 3 and her sisters just turned 9 month old, so of course we celebrated with pictures~

This session was about Asher turning 1, but we also took some family photos that included his grandmother. What a sweet boy and beautiful family!

Asher wasn’t that into his cake smash and his big brother Parker wasn’t a fan of my camera, but we ended up with some precious family memories and that is what it is all about~




Caleb~ {Louisa, Virginia Child and Family Portrait Photographer}

When I read about this family and that their son Caleb was diagnosed with cancer, I just had to offer them a session. I just couldn’t even imagine how a parent handles having to watch their child battle this horrible disease.

Almost a year later, they took me up on the offer and found out that week that he was in remission! I am thankful to have crossed paths with them…and I am also looking forward to Maggie having Caleb’s Mom as a teacher next year!

Holy Communion~ {Richmond, Virginia Child and Family Portrait Photographer}

It is always fun to try new things! Capturing these portraits of Emerie to document her First Holy Communion was amazing.

What a beautiful little girl with a heart for God…and this location was just gorgeous~
