Chase~ {Louisa, Virginia Newborn Session}

When Chase’s Grammy contacted me because she wanted to gift a newborn session to her daughter, I was so thrilled.  What a wonderful gift:)

Chase had to be worn down just a bit and then he let me do whatever I wanted…and I have the images to prove it!

What a sweet baby and a blessed family right before Christmas.  I bet they don’t need any other presents this year~

Leif~{Louisa, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

Leif came to my studio awake and awake he stayed for most of his session.  He just didn’t want to miss a thing and was so adorable! Between his beautiful eyes and hair, isn’t he so handsome?

I told his parents that sometimes I never see a newborn’s eyes, so it was wonderful to capture so many wide eyed moments of him. I think it is important to capture their personalities even at this time, and from what they told me, I think I did:)

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

I have photographed Chase since his newborn session and he has always been happy and easy to capture. Let’s just say he wasn’t a fan of me for his 1 year session. The more I tried, the worse he would just look at me and cry…it was kind of funny really.

Even though it was challenging for both myself and his parents, I am happy with the photos I was able to capture to celebrate him turning 1! Probably one of my favorite cake smashes ever…thankfully he liked his cake more than he liked me…lol!

Christi Parker - Looks like he and Madyson would have had a blast together in their cakes. :) Such a cutie.

Danielle Lawson - That’s my little cutie! He sure was a handful that night… The session ended up capturing lots of sides of his personality, from happy, to curious, to frustrated and or ornery! Thanks Denise! We love the pics!

Geraldine Bywaters - I am pretty sure he is the best cake smasher ever!

Dani~ {Richmond, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

Sweet, sweet, sweet…that is what this girl is!  She was so good for her session, well that is until she pooped all over her mother during family photos…lol!

I am so lucky to have the opportunity to meet so many new parents and their sweet babies. This time is so fleeting and I feel blessed to be able to do what I do.

Enjoy the beautiful newness of Dani and her family~

Reese~ {Charlottesville, Virginia Newborn Photographer}

It is funny how babies all come around the same time! I think this month may have been my busiest one for newborns yet.  So wonderful too that all of them were born right before Thanksgiving, giving their families much to be thankful for!

After a string of boys it was so much fun to have a little girl to dress in girly props. Reese was a doll for her session. Her big sister was not into me or my camera at all, but I did manage to get some smiles and cooperation out of her for some family photos.

Thanks M family for allowing me to capture these memories for you!
