Holiday Minis 2017

Oh my goodness, these may just be the best Holiday minis yet.   This year, I was fortunate enough to find two amazing locations and of course, be joined by over a dozen awesome families.

We had such great start our Mini Sessions at Tuckahoe Plantation – the weather here in Richmond was really agreeing with us.  And I was excited to have these two sweet faces back with me to start off our sessions.  Jaelle & Jiselle are all smiles and so much fun to photograph.

These girls crack me up!  Emma and Lexi were allowed to pick their own outfits for their mini-session.  And look at all that sparkle!  Yes, those are silver glitter boots and a furry shawl.  Beautiful girls, just beautiful!

One of the best part of mini-sessions is all the new families I get to meet.  This is sweet Stella and her parents.  They were all such a joy to work with.  And her smile, its just radiant!

Ah, the sweet and sassy Victoria!  Last time I saw here was with her puppy and they were so cute together.  This time it was all her, and her awesome parents of course.

I love when adults sneak into my minis.  It’s the 20 minutes I get to talk in a regular voice instead of my – smile at me – photographer voice.  Abbey and Noah were a blast to work with.  And they may just have scored themselves some perfect light for this maternity mini.  Stunning!

Then came this bundle of energy – Joshua, Ethan and Zachary – who brought along their newest addition, baby sister Rose.   Isn’t she adorable – and well loved.   They are such a great family!

We closed our day at Tuckahoe Plantation with this character.  This is Noah and this photography session was all about him.  Many kids this age like to stick close to their parents, but nope, not Noah.  He was doing his own thing and it was awesome.

Before heading back out to my next set of Holiday Minis, I got to sneak in a few at the Little Love’s studio.    Sweet Rachael all decked out for Christmas.  She was as cute and as curious as she could be.  And I just love that red hair and fabulous dress.

Studio minis also brought in these two.  We had just spent some time together at the Fall Mini Sessions, so I was excited to have them back for the Holidays.  Savannah and Miles are adorable.  So many smiles!  And her dress – it had glitter and pink double decker buses – I loved it!

Holiday Minis continued at Hope Tree Farm.  Rhett and Kelso are dear friends of our family, so it is always fun to see this crew all dressed up.  They are a seriously cute family.

I get to see this family quite a bit to at our sessions.  And I am so thankful to be their photographer because these girl’s are adorable.    Are you catching those fancy boots and red snowflake inspired winter leggings??   All smiles from Bayliegh and Finley!

Oh its Clayton!  He was in over the summer for his 1 year cake smash and this kid just keeps getting cuter.  Love those matching jackets.

Carson and Caybrie are back after our fantastic session in the Spring.  These two are such a pleasure to photograph.   Big smiles all around.  And I love these colors – they are so perfectly bright. And the plaid – adorable!

So many of my families return year after year.  And some years their kids show up and they seem to have just grown up in an instant.  Such is true for twins Vivienne and Everett. They have been coming to see me since their newborn session. And now, oh my goodness, look at them!

We ended out our holiday minis with this great family.  And I say it every time – these two remind me so much of my own boys.  Right down to that hoodie sweathshirt.  Grant and Avery are wonderful young men and it was so great to close this year out with their family.

As always, my thanks to everyone that joined us for the 2017 Holiday Mini Sessions.  You all truly make my photographer life better and I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year!
