And Baby Makes Four~ {Louisa, Virginia Maternity and Newborn Photographer}

I am not quite sure where to begin. Will and Beth have been friends ever since I met them to do their engagement photos. They then trusted me to photograph their wedding (my first) and I have happily captured many family moments since then.

So for some time I had been waiting for big news and when Beth told me she was pregnant, of course I agreed to help them share the special news:)


A few months ago I photographed their gender reveal session and everyone was thrilled and surprised to learn that baby #2 will be a boy!


We met for their maternity session at Prospect Hill Plantation, which is becoming one of my favorite locations.

I love each person in this family for so many reasons…

~Emerson is probably the most photographed child on my blog and she has quite the personality as you can see from these pictures. She is clearly excited about becoming a big sister:)

 ~Beth is so darn beautiful, even more so with her gorgeous baby belly!

~Will always keeps the sessions fun and entertaining!

I am so excited for them and can’t wait to meet baby Reece in just a few short weeks~





Samuel~ {Louisa, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

Shannon and Doug reached out a few months ago to share their adoption story with me. They were waiting on the birth of their soon to be son and wanted to know if I would document their newborn session.

Because our family has experienced the miracle and blessing of adoption, I was thrilled to be able to do this for them!

They have waited for Samuel for many years and I was so thrilled to capture their first moments as a new family of three.  I hope looking at these photos will bless them and remind them of how the wait was totally worth it~

Gray~ {Richmond, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

Gray surprised everyone by coming a month early, and apparently he is continuing to keep his parents on their toes!

It took me some time to wear him down, but once I did, we were able to get so many wonderful images.  Their family images are some of my favorites ever!
