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

I have so enjoyed going back through Natalie’s first year!  From her newborn session to her 1 year session, this girl has shown her ability to shine on camera:) These photos from her last session are two of my favorite images ever and one of them will be going on my studio wall soon~


I am very thankful to this wonderful family for coming back 4 times this year to document their family memories…and I love that they order canvases from each session instead of leaving them on the  computer…something I myself am guilty of~

Happy Birthday Natalie!

Turning 2 and waiting for 2~ {Louisa, Virginia Maternity Photographer}

Heather and I have been friends for a few years now, and I have been blessed to capture so many special life moments for she and her family.

This session was all about Kenley turning two, but we also captured the sweet two girls that will be here in October (twins)!  I am so excited for Heather, Casey and big sister Kenley:)

What a hoot Kenley is, I love that red hair of hers…and those eyes just get me every time. And of course Heather is a beautiful Momma to be…can’t wait for October!


Bennett~ {Culpeper, Virginia Newborn Lifestyle session}

I love doing lifestyle sessions, it really captures a family in real life!

Because we have four boys, I love when I get to experience sessions with boys…this one was no exception…these siblings kept me on my toes. They were so excited about their baby brother and it was adorable:)

Bennett was very alert for most of the time I was there, but that was ok with this type of session.  So happy to meet this family and document this special time for them.

I decided to blog this session in black and white since Mom said she preferred black and white photos~


Coming soon~ {Richmond, Virginia Maternity and Newborn Photographer}

It was not so long ago that I met Sarah and Tim for their first maternity session. Just 19 months later they are waiting on baby #2! I am so excited for them and can’t wait to celebrate Camille becoming a big sister:)

H family…Camille was a champ for this session…and so were you Tim!  Can’t wait to see all of you soon for a newborn session~


Happy Birthday! {Richmond, VA Child and Family Photographer}

I am not sure I can even count the number of sessions I have had with this wonderful family!  On this occasion, we were celebrating Charlie’s first birthday…which actually occurred some time ago:)

We had fun going to a new location and were able to get some family shots that included their furry family member. That is always fun! And big brother Walker was also a trooper for me…

Charlie was not sure about photos, especially those involving cake, but I am pretty sure that I captured who Charlie is.  I loved every moment, thanks S family for trusting me with these special memories~
