Party of 3~ {Richmond, Virginia Child and Family Photographer}

 I met this adorable family in Richmond last weekend.  Miss Reagan wasn’t so sure about me, but I was excited to capture some wonderful moments while I tried to win her over:)

First we headed to a local church where the grounds were absolutely perfect for a family session. Then we headed back to their house so we could include the furry family members!

Thanks Andrew and Megan for allowing me to capture these special memories for you~








Happy Birthday Kinsley~ {Keswick, Virginia Child Photographer}

I photographed Kinsley last year for her newborn session. I remember her as being such a sweet baby. I think she was one of the last babies I photographed before I went to my workshop with Laura Brett Photography.

She came back last week to do her 1 year photos in my Louisa studio. Mom and big brother came along to help get some smiles for me:)

What a cutie! I get to see her again this Sunday when we do a family session…I can’t wait!



Coming very soon~ {Louisa, Virginia Maternity and Newborn Photographer}

Jeremy and Brittany contacted me last week about doing maternity photos asap. She is 39 weeks and so I had them come and meet me for a downtown session in Louisa. Their sweet girl Ellie Mae jumped in for some shots as well:)

We were pleased to find a gorgeous magnolia tree and some daffodils…all signs that yes, Spring is on it’s way…finally!

I can’t wait to meet their little girl very soon~



Cole~ {Richmond, Virginia Maternity and Newborn Photographer}

Katie contacted me many months ago to book her newborn session, so I feel like I experienced much of her pregnancy right along with her!

I fell in serious “like” with she and Andrew during their maternity session and was thrilled to finally see them holding their baby boy in their arms.

What a precious little one Cole was for his photos! I loved his expressions and the way he fought me posing those hands of his…lol!  He also shared some some serious newborn eye contact with me.

Thanks Katie and Andrew for making the long drive twice to see me.  I do hope this was not our last session together:)

Happy Birthday~{ Louisa, Virginia Child and Family Photographer}

I have been photographing Ashlie for a few years now. First she and her husband did a session as a couple and then I had the pleasure of capturing  newborn photos of their beautiful baby girl Carsen. I feel blessed to have Ashlie as a friend and a client….it is certainly the best of both worlds:)

I can not believe that Carsen is a year old already…wow! She always has such beautiful smiles for me, and although she was not as into her cake as we thought she would be,  she is the cutest thing ever!

Happy Birthday to you~ {Richmond, Virginia Child Photographer}

I took Emma’s newborn photos last year and remember what a good baby she was for her session.  I was sad at the time when her parents told me that they were moving, but luckily, that never happened and I have been blessed to have them as clients. 

I was thrilled to see her again for Valentine’s Day mini’s and then just the other day for her 1st Birthday Cake Smash!

Emma didn’t feel very well during her session, but I am happy with what I was able to capture…what a cutie, even if she was a bit

serious about her cake:)




Luke~{Louisa, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

I love that I have been in business long enough to be photographing siblings of some of my first newborns:)

Luke was an absolute angel for his session…and check out all of that hair!  I photographed big brother almost 2 years ago and he even showed up for a sibling shot. Some kids will do anything for a Happy Meal:)

Enjoy the squishy, adorable newborn goodness~

Pink coming soon~ {Richmond, Virginia Maternity and Newborn Photographer}

I met Meenu and her husband Amit at a Richmond park this past weekend for their maternity session.  The  leaves weren’t out yet, but it was almost warm enough to feel like Spring.

What a beautiful and sweet couple they were. And let me just say that Meenu was quite the trooper, as the park I chose had a big hill to climb. *Note to self, don’t take maternity clients who like heels to this park:)

We had fun finding spots around the park, and although I love when clients change clothes,  I have so much trouble choosing my favorite images.  So I chose my favorites from each outfit to share!

Thanks Meenu and Amit for allowing me to capture this special time for you. I can’t wait to meet your little girl in just a few short weeks~




Wiley~ {Richmond, Virginia Maternity and Newborn Photographer}

I was so excited to finally meet Wiley, or as he is appropriately called “Smiley Wiley”.  What a precious boy he was for his session…he just loved to be held and cuddled and basically let me do whatever I wanted to him.  Wiley’s parents and grandmothers were just as wonderful and helpful to me during the session…I simply have the BEST clients:)

Thank you Courtney and Suter for sharing your sweet blessing and for trusting me with such special memories~
