Easter Mini Sessions {2018}

My goodness, this year Easter has had a way of sneaking up me.  But so many of you have asked for these and they are always fun to do.  So once again, in the “better late than never” category, I am excited to announce that I will be doing a limited number of Easter Mini Sessions here at the studio next week.  Easter is approaching fast, so I will have all of these images turned around in 72 hours or less (well before Easter).  Details below:

Wednesday, March 21st – 10:00am – 2:00pm
Saturday, March 24th – 11:00am – 1:00p

$100 will include a 20 minutes session and 5 high-resolution, edited images.
These minis are aimed at the preschool crowd.  We will be doing KIDS ONLY.
This year’s theme will be include fun pastels and Easter decor with a vintage feel.

No, there will not be live animals, you can see my thoughts on that here.

We will keep these really simple!  Payment in full is due at time of booking.  Once you set your time, I will send along a link where you can pay for your session by credit card.

Yes, we will be doing Spring Minis, outside in the next 6 weeks.  Yay Spring!  Keep an eye out for that announcement soon!

Look forward to seeing you all this Spring!

Ben {one year} – Children’s Photography – Richmond, VA

The end of the year brought two one year old boys into the studio  – it is such a fun age!  This is one year old Ben!  And this little guys is just a bundle of happiness.

Ben was all smiles for his birthday pictures. All smiles.  Check him out in this rocker.

Little kids are funny when you put them on new things.  Their adventurous little spirits take over.  Ben had never tried out a scooter,  but he got it.  And he seemed to love it.  And I love him in this blue sweater.  Such a handsome, little man.

Ben’s mom asked for one more outfits – its orange and has dogs on it, she said.  Yup, you had me at dogs.  So here is Ben – sporting his puppy dog sweater and showing off those standing skills.

Happy Birthday Ben!  It was a pleasure and joy to meet your sweet family.  I hope you will come share your smiles with me again soon!

Elizabeth {2 months} – Children’s Photography, Richmond, VA

The sweet and lovely Elizabeth Grace joined me in studio a few weeks ago.  Her family are wonderful and kind people, so I always enjoy seeing them.  And this girl, such bit of perfection.  Sweet smiles and thoughtful glances.  One of their good friends made that sign for her – and I do believe a world changer this girl will be!

He mom wanted to get pictures of her tiny parts, because really, little fingers and toes are the cutest.  As my own kids grow older, I always hope one of the things I never forget is the feeling of their little hands in mine.  These are precious little hands!

This family is a joy to photograph!  So much peace and joy.  Look forward to seeing them and little Elizabeth again soon.

Adrian {cake smash} – Children’s Photography – Richmond, VA

The sweet and serious one year old Adrian!  So serious, so sweet.  He was the very first session in my studio for 2018 – what a great way to start the year!

He joined me to celebrate his first birthday.  Red flannel has been quite the thing this year.  Red flannel bow tie and suspenders – yes please!  Such a thinker this kid.    Look  at that pose.

Then we brought out the cake.  Which apparently was not his favorite.  We tried, we did.  But this birthday boys just stared us down with those handsome eyes.  But he looked cute in the pursuit of the smash.

Happy Birthday Adrian – it was so great to celebrate with you and your family.

Karan & Simran {maternity}

This couple was just amazing to work with.   They texted me several time in the evening before their session – they were looking for the perfect dress.  And when I saw the picture they snapped of her in this one, I knew it was the one for their maternity photography shoot.  Its just stunning and so is this pregnant mamma.

Thirty six week pregnant Simran, and her husband, Karan are due any day now.   They are so excited to welcome this new wonder into this world.    They are going to be amazing parents.  I love these images from our maternity photography session – stunning!  And so much love!

Speaking of love, this couple is fortunate to have the love and support of their family and family is a beautiful thing.  I look forward for meeting their little one at their newborn session.

Danielle & Jimmy {family}

This photography session was just a joy  I love that they came for their holiday session with just their dog – Sully and themselves.    This family was beautiful and we had a perfect day at Midlo-Mines for their photography session.  Picture perfect.  And they were all about sitting in the tall grass, which as a photographer I appreciate.

It is so fun to be with families and couples that are happy together.  And Danielle and Jimmy, truly seem like they are so happy together.  They just kept stealing cute glances and making each other smile.

Sully was the star of the show, rocking his holiday colors.  This dog is one loved little pup.  Love him in this hat.

And I love that Sully got to play such a huge part in this special announcement.  While this was not specifically a maternity photography session, they were definitely planning a big announcement for family and friends.   She broke out a big bag of Pintresty magic for this and it was amazing.  So much fun.    Move over Sully, there is about to be a new kid in town.  And I am so excited I finally get to share these birth announcement pictures.
