Happy Birthday to you! {Louisa Studio Cake Smash}

Hayden had her own ideas about this cake smash session that her mother has been planning for months. So after two tries in the studio with limited success, we took her outside and were able to save the session I think! Won’t it be fun to tell her all about it when she is older?

Happy Birthday sweet Hayden, if I see you tearing into your cake at your party….I will take it personally…lol!

Baby sister coming soon~ {Richmond Maternity Session}

I met this sweet family this past weekend in Richmond. Baby Kate is due is just 3 weeks, so I am glad we were able to capture their last moments as a family of 3.  Can’t wait to hear the news:)

Waiting on baby brother~ {Richmond, Charlottesville, Louisa, Fredericksburg VA Maternity and Newborn Photographer

I met Maya, Stu and Brooks this past weekend in the Fan area of Richmond. They just moved into a beautiful home and all we had to do for the scenery for this session was walk around the block!

I can’t wait to meet their newest family member, coming soon in March:)

Coming soon~ {Richmond, Charlottesville, Louisa, Fredericksburg VA Maternity and Newborn Photographer}

This past weekend I met Lora and Matt at a Richmond park. It was a new location for me, but I loved the stone steps, bridge and walkways. I can’t wait to go back when everything is in bloom!

We  were lucky enough to get a fairly warm evening in January and I think the lovely backdrop was perfect to showcase this sweet couple as they await the birth of their first baby.

Thanks Lora and Matt, it was so nice to meet you! I can’t wait to hear from you soon about whether it will be pink or blue:)

While Daddy’s home~ {Louisa, Charlottesville, Richmond, Spotsylvania VA Family Photographer}

What a sweet family of three!  I was so happy to finally meet them after corresponding with Sarah over the past few months.  Her husband Mike is home from Afghanistan and so they wanted some shots of their family before he has to return.

Between their sickness and mine I am amazed that we were able to get it in, but we did!  Thanks for coming out to Louisa for your session and for being troopers about heading out to a horse pasture with me:)

Thank you Mike for your service to our country, it is appreciated more than you know!

I love me some boys! {Louisa Session} » Denise Feagans Photography - […] I realized today that I never shared this fun Fall all boy session! Can’t wait for Spring to be here to start taking family photos. […]

Thankful~ {Louisa, Charlottesville, Richmond VA Child and Family Photographer}

A few months ago, I was contacted by a Baltimore photographer. She was searching for a photographer near Charlottesville to take pictures of a family who had recently been through quite a lot in the past 2 years.

Katie and Michael and their son Edward have much to be thankful for. You see, Eddie has had to fight for his life twice and he isn’t  even 2 years old yet!  He was born at 25 weeks and spent 100 days in the NICU, and then had to battle a rare pediatric cancer.

He recently finished chemo and his prognosis sounds excellent!  I so enjoyed meeting this inspiring, sweet family.  I love family sessions, but this one was extra special.  I think that I appreciate life and my kiddos a little more after hearing their story:)

Thanks again Katie, Michael and Eddie for allowing me to capture what I hope and pray is the beginning of a better “normal” for you all!

*And thank you Aunt Amy for giving this gift to them. I hope that these images are ones they will forever look back on to remind them of their blessings!
