Baby L| Richmond, Virginia Newborn Portrait Photographer

This Richmond family is so amazing! They have been coming to me to capture their family memories for a few years now.

I photographed both of their newborn session for their little boys and was so excited to get the news that their third baby was going to be a girl!

When parents fill out their online agreement on my website, they get to choose their colors and or props that they will like to use in the session. This session was truly girly with lots of pinks and purples!

Big brothers were not into doing a sibling shot with their little sister, but they did wonderful when we too the family portraits….phew!

Enjoy beautiful London and her beautiful family~

Milestone Sessions|Richmond, Charlottesville, Louisa Photographer

       I am excited to introduce the Milestone Session to Denise Feagans Photography!

Formally called a mini session and previously only offered in the Spring and Fall on certain days on specific weekends, these new sessions can be purchased all year round.

What is a Milestone Session?

     Your Milestone Session is anything you want it to be…children, families, seniors, communion, maternity…maybe even that toothless grin that will only come around once!

Because they are a bit discounted, I ask that these sessions happen in Louisa County where I live. I have my studio for indoor sessions, and Louisa is full of gorgeous locations for your outdoor sessions.

Each session is $275 and includes 12-15 images.

(for families I have to charge accordingly for additional family members)

Book your session today! I don’t work on Sundays, but have weeknight and Saturday availability this Spring and Summer.

*If I have to travel for these, I would have to charge a $75 fee.

Charlottesville Newborn Photographer|Baby love

As a Charlottesville newborn photographer,  Denise Feagans Photography is proud to give newborn clients a choice of newborn sessions. While most families love the idea of both individual photos of baby as well as  family portraits, some clients are looking for another option.  Enter the mini newborn session, which lasts about an hour and gives the client seven edited digital images. Most of the time these are a mixture of wrapped and unwrapped portraits, depending on the mood of the baby!

Baby S was another little sweetheart who entered my Louisa studio with a mop of gorgeous dark hair.  I have had a few in a row now! He was super easy to work with and I was thrilled to see his beautiful eyes at the end of his session. His mom had requested natural looking colors, which is how I usually tend to style newborn sessions. I feel that then the focus can be on the baby. I love the look of neutral backdrops with pops of color thrown in. The blue wrap and the tan striped overalls were a perfect pop for this off white blanket.

He and his mom traveled to my Louisa studio from Charlottesville for the session. Even though I am in Louisa, I consider myself a Charlottesville newborn photographer. The drive out here is not very long, and most clients rave about how beautiful the scenery is on the way here. Additionally, I find that most clients don’t mind the drive if it means I don’t have to invade their home with all of my stuff…lol!

Welcome to the world baby S!  I hope to see you in a few months for your sitter session~

Eat Cake| Richmond Child Photographer

As a Richmond child photographer, I have noticed the recent popularity of cake smash sessions.  I truly wish that this was a thing when my kids were little! There is nothing cuter that a one year old showing their excitement, or in some cases distain for their smash cake…lol!

I combine a child’s one year session with the cake smash, adding an additional outfit, as well as an opportunity for the client to have a family portrait taken.  Most of my cake smash clients love this aspect of the session, as many people don’t take the time to get a family photo done enough these days.

Every cake smash session includes the cake as well as the set up. I have a local baker who I love to collaborate with for the cakes. My clients usually send me what outfit they have chosen for their child and then we have fun designing from there. I tend to try and stay simple with these set ups, so that the focus is on the child and the cake.

This wonderful family is from Richmond, and they have been so supportive of Denise Feagans Photography. For that I am super grateful! I have photographed big sister’s newborn session, as well as J’s baby session one year ago. I also have captured a few cute mini sessions in between.

The entire family came by for J’s one year cake smash,  and as you can see, a fun time was had by all. Look at his happiness…that is what it is all about!

Happy Birthday J! What a joy to watch you grow:)

Charlottesville Baby Photographer

As a Charlottesville baby photographer, I love to witness first time parents and their babies. It is a whole new world for them. I can remember not realizing how much I could love another human being…and then I gave birth to our first son, and then I knew it was a love like no other. Most of us then don’t even remember life before having kids.

Baby A came to my Louisa studio with his parents and grandparents. It was easy for me to see that he is already very loved by many people.

Every newborn session that is booked at Denise Feagans Photography is styled after the parents fill out an online agreement. Each family gets to suggest colors and or props that they may want to incorporate into their newborn session. I have plenty of wonderful props to choose from for each baby!

Baby A had so much wonderful hair that I only took out one hat…lol! He was a complete angel and I enjoyed his sweet snuggles. What a wonderful job I have, being able to capture beautiful memories of newborns so that their parents can remember a time that goes by way too fast.

Welcome to the world baby A~

Charlottesville Family Photographer

Here at Denise Feagans Photography, a Charlottesville family photographer, I have the pleasure of watching families grow. I have definitely been able to watch these sweet kiddos grow over the past few years. Because I have taken their portraits so often,  the kids seem to be totally used to my camera:) Family sessions are so much fun and are my favorite time to make everyone feel really comfortable. If everyone is at ease, I can capture the true emotions that are being felt, along with the personality of each person in the family.

I found this gorgeous field in Louisa and it was perfect for this Spring session. The yellow flowers and the red barn made for a perfect backdrop, I just had to insert a beautiful family! I would have trouble choosing which images to put on my walls from this one. I work with clients with their wardrobe for there sessions depending on where we taking their portraits, as well as where they will put them in their home.

Happy Birthday times 2~{Louisa, Virginia Child and Family Portrait Photographer}

I have loved every moment of capturing these adorable twins over the past year! It is so hard to believe that they will be turning a year old soon.

Remember this sweet shot from their newborn session?

Their sitter session was right around Christmas.

When their Mom told me that she wanted their one year session to be themed around the Kentucky Derby, I was thrilled! We went to the Derby last year and had a fabulous time, so I just knew this was going to be cute…and was it ever:)

They were a bit serious for the first part of the session, but they warmed up a bit…and of course they LOVED the cake.

Enjoy this way over the top cute session! The hats are my FAVORITE!!!

Happy Birthday girls~

Baby sister coming soon~ {Lake Anna Maternity and Newborn Portrait Photographer}

When Ashley contacted me for her maternity session, she said that she wanted to include her daughter in her photos, along with some of her in the lake.

I love when clients want to do something different and this was for sure! I love how her lake portraits turned out, and have included them here in the blog post since I didn’t feel that they would be appropriate for social media.

Isn’t she just a beautiful pregnant Momma? And sweet Halle takes after her for sure…I am sure baby sister will too. I can’t wait to meet her in a few months for her newborn session in my studio.

Happy Birthday!

When we lost our dog Brandi, our whole family was devastated. She was fine one day, and just a few days later diagnosed with a rare blood disorder that took her at only 7 years old.

I immediately knew that getting another dog was in our future. Our house just wasn’t the same without one. Having been a cat person for most of my life, I had never realized the unconditional love of a dog. There was definitely a huge hole in our hearts when Brandi was gone.

Enter our sweet Miss Birdie who came to us almost a year to the day of losing Brandi.   I think of her when I hear the song “It’s a better place since you came along.”  At times I get frustrated with her, like when she eats our shoes or barks at nothing, but most of the time she is right next to one of us…as she is now as I am writing this post:)

Here are some cute puppy pics….awww!

Most of the other pictures of her are on my phone…lol! We did include her in our family portrait this year and I am so glad we did.

I took these before she got a hair cut and I was setting up the studio for another session, but I just love them! The freckle on her nose…

For fun, I had my friend Jenny, of Jenny Cakes make Birdie a smash cake. She didn’t really get into it like I had hoped, but she did eat a few bones and licked the heck out of the icing!

We plan to celebrate tonight with some steak, lots of extra ball throwing and hugs~
