Happy Birthday~ {Louisa, Virginia Cake Smash Photographer}

I love this family so much and have been blessed to capture many important milestones for them.

 I just love going back to newborn sessions to see how much these babies have grown. Look at sweet River one year ago!

Last week we got together to celebrate him turning one in a few weeks. I mean the red hair…seriously!

His big brother was quite the ham and wanted his turn in the chair…lol!

We were also able to go outside and take some family photos, which is always included in the cake smash session.

What a gorgeous family!

The actual cake smash happened the day after with much success! What a cute woodland theme:)

I love watching families grow!

It seems like yesterday that I was visiting this amazing family to capture the newest addition to their family, Nya.  This portrait of her from that session hangs front and center in my studio, because it is a favorite of mine.

A few weeks ago she came to my Louisa studio for he 9 month sitter session…what a cutie:)

Celebrating 2 years~{ Louisa, Virginia Portrait Photographer}

Back in November Ashlie came to my house so we could capture her celebrating 2 years of being cancer free. She and I had been planning this for a few months, and she had kept it a secret from her husband and family…or so she thought!

Behind the scenes friends and family decided to surprise her by showing up to celebrate with her, complete with balloons, cake and champagne!

As you can see, she was totally surprised and overwhelmed by this outpouring of love and support.

Ashlie, I look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries with you…I love you my friend~

Twins~ {Richmond, Virginia Twin Newborn Portrait Photographer}

I met this family when I captured their son Charlie’s 8 month portraits, and then again for his 1 year session. It is so much fun to see families grow!

Well, as you can see, this family has grown instantly by two:)

George and James came to my Louisa studio on their due date and were just perfect…and Charlie surprised all of us by performing his big brother duties!

Congratulations S family, you are very blessed. Boys are the best!  Thank you for allowing me to capture your special moments~

Happy Birthday! {Charlottesville, Virginia Child Portrait Photographer}

It is so hard to believe that it has been a year since Catherine’s newborn session. What a little beauty she is. I am totally in love with her big brown eyes and amazing hair!

I was so thrilled that her mother brought her baptismal gown to the session as well. What special portraits that will stand the test of time.

Catherine was busy, but so much fun to capture…happy birthday sweet girl~

Cal~ {Charlottesville, Virginia Newborn Portrait Photographer}

When I first met Jessica, I had just returned from my first ever newborn workshop. Her baby boy Griffin was my first attempt after learning so many new tricks. Although I still feel like I didn’t know what I was doing, she was absolutely thrilled with her photos. Unfortunately, they moved shortly after, but then moved back to the area. She has always been willing to drive two hours for her sessions and has truly become a dear client and friend.

Jessica is now a mom to two amazing little boys. I am in awe of her!

Cal was a dream model for me and big brother was a champ for his photos as well.

Jessica, thank you for trusting me with these memories, and why, oh, why are you moving again? Much luck to and love to all of you and I will just have to be happy to watch them grow via Facebook:)

Addison~ {Richmond, Virginia Newborn Lifestyle Photographer}

I enjoy studio sessions, but sometimes it is fun to capture families in their homes for a lifestyle session.

Addison is the second daughter for this family and it was a joy to see how much she is loved! As you can see, big sister wasn’t interested in the love that day, but she is still as cute as a button:)
