Reece~ {Louisa, Virginia Maternity and Newborn Photographer}

This family means the world to me! I am so excited to share their newest family member Reece with you….isn’t he just the cutest thing ever? And the love that his big sister has for him is even sweeter:)

I was thinking of how appropriate it is to be posting their photos the day before Thanksgiving because there are many reasons I am thankful for them. Most especially for choosing me to capture so many of their family memories.

I love my job, but it is extra special to get to be able to give my friends the gift of photographs they will treasure forever.

Thanks Liz and Will for your friendship. Now that there are four of you, I see many more photo shoots in our future~

Owen~ {Richmond, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

I traveled to visit Owen and his family last week for his newborn session. What a wonderful family and I think a made a friend with his big sister…not sure who was more adorable, she or her brother!

I know that they will have a wonderful Thanksgiving being thankful for Owen and celebrating becoming a family of four~

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

I have been photographing Layton since her newborn session. I not only love this sweet redhead, but I have become close to her Mom as well.  She has a wonderful story and a super encouraging spirit, I will just leave it at that for now:)

Layton was a bit reserved at first with me, but she slowly came out of her shell with her cake!

Happy Birthday Layton, I hope you get more cake today~



Max~{Williamsburg, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

I was so excited to have Max and his parents come to my studio for his newborn session. They drove from Williamsburg , which may be the reason Max was bright eyed when he arrived!  Thankfully, he also slept some too. It is always nice to have both awake and sleepy shots from a session.

Max’s Daddy is a firefighter, so it was fun to get some shots of Max in his helmet.

Enjoy this new, beautiful family of three~

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

I have photographed this family many times and each time they make me smile:)

I photographed Madyson last year and what a difference a year makes.  She was just as easy going at her 1 year session as she was at her newborn shoot.

And her cake smash, you can see how that went below.  She was way more into playing with it, than eating it…she put the “smash” in smash cake for sure!

Enjoy her cuteness…and there is also a special appearance of her sweet siblings~

Christi Parker - Thank you so much for capturing this special time for us. Yet again you have captured the true personality of our sweet baby. We love them.

On the go~ {Richmond, Virginia Child and Family Photographer}

I met this adorable family last week for a full family session. The were worried about booking a mini session since their little man is quite active!

I am so glad that they chose this option. I photographed Lawson as a newborn and I have to say that there were 2 very obvious differences in these sessions. For one, his head of black hair indeed changed and his mobility has greatly increased!

What fun we had though as you will be able to see from the photos~



Fall Mini Sessions~

Some clients are new and some are ones that have been around for awhile. I love both!

Alex and Andy did Anniversary photos with me not long after I began my business. They have continued to come back again and again to capture each season of their lives.

I am blessed to watch so many families grow and smile when I think of so many of the images I have taken for them on the walls of their homes:)
