Happy Birthday~ {Louisa, Virginia Child Photographer}

I have been photographing Carsen since she was a newborn. As many of you know, she is the daughter of my dear friend Ashlie.

Carsen and her Daddy have been the reason for Ashlie’s fight with cancer over the past year.

I am so glad that we were able to get together for a few birthday photos on her actual birthday! Cuteness overload for sure:)

Happy Birthday Carsen…I hope to capture many more special moments for you and your family~

Charlie, 8 months~ {Richmond, Virginia Child and Family Photographer}

Charlie came to my Louisa County studio with his family for his 8 month session this past weekend.

I love seeing how my newborns change and grow in such a short time. It seems like just yesterday that I photographed his newborn session.

It took some prodding to get Charlie on board with doing photos, but mostly we just had to keep feeding him:)  Whatever works I always say!

Big brother Walker was also a trooper for his photos. I can’t wait to do some outdoor Spring photos in a few months for Charlie’s birthday~



Bryce~{Ruckersville, Charlottesville, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

I not only fell in love with this little man during his newborn session, but I also fell in love with his family:) I love when that happens!

Bryce gave me quite the challenge, as he was wide awake for awhile. As usual though, I won the battle and was able to capture some sleepy poses as well. The gas fireplace directly in back of him may have had something to do with it…I will take half the credit:)

Enjoy the newness of Bryce and this brand new wonderful family of 4~

Happy Birthday Cole~ {Louisa, Richmond, Charlottesville Child and Family Photographer}

I did Cole’s newborn session last year and was thrilled to see him again for a cake smash.

Not only did we celebrate his birthday, but we also helped to make a special announcement to family and friends!

Rebecca Harcum Butler - I am sure he did not mind an extended photo session this time – – no problem smiling in these

Walker~ {Richmond, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

I was so thrilled to be able to see this family again and photograph their newest addition.

Walker was sleepy and cooperative for me…and how about all of that hair!

His big sister wasn’t having me and my camera at all, so I hope at one point we can do a family session when Walker is a little bigger:)

Vicky Kincanon - All of these pics are so precious. It’s so good to see our former students raising their own children!

Double blessing ~ {Charlottesville, Virginia Newborn Twin Photographer}

Every time I photograph twins I worry, but then afterwards I wonder why. I mean, shouldn’t two babies be harder than one?  But when you pose twins together, they just seem to have comfort with being together.

Benjamin and Parker were born a few weeks early, but as you can see, they are absolutely perfect! Their parents seem to be pros already and were so very helpful during the session.

Enjoy the double sweetness of these boys, I just love getting to do what I do~

Maureen Ursprung - Our grand babies – grandpa jeff and reeni can’t wait to meet these two schmoopies

Claire~{Richmond, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

I photographed this wonderful family a few months ago before Claire was born.

Claire being a girl was a surprise to everyone, so I love that everyone wore pink for the session. Claire was so such a sweet baby… I just love her rolls! I was pleased to get both sleepy and awake shots of her. Big brother and sister were quite the challenge, but I am so happy to have captured this special time for them as a family of five~

Sweetness~ {Charlottesville, Virginia Child Photographer}

I photographed Natalie as a newborn. Her mother reminded me at her 7 month session last week that she was a bit difficult for her newborn session.  I didn’t really remember, so it couldn’t have been that bad!

She was totally opposite for this session, smiling all the way through all of the outfits we had for her. Total sweetness! I can’t wait to see her for her 1 year portraits:)
