The Richmond Regional Homeschool Graduation is one of my favorite events to photograph each year. I was invited back for the 4th time and this was no exception.
The young men and woman at this graduation are always exceptional to work with. And as I sit though their commencement ceremony each year, I am always inspired by their talent and their passion.
Congratulations Class of 2016! I wish you all the best in your life endeavors.
It always makes me happy when my newborn clients come back with their newest addition. Watching my families grow is such a blessing. My visit with newborn Alena was no different.
Little Alena came into the studio at just 8 days. Eight wonderful days and she is beautiful. Perfect little pea-pod, our time together was a joy.
I am growing to treasure itty bitty baby parts. Little nose, little toes. All of newborn Alena’s are perfect.
Love these pics with Alena and her family. Love, love, love them.
As I went through this session I just kept finding new favorites. Hand shots can be tricky…. little hands don’t always like to stay where you put them. We grabbed this one at the end or our session and I do not think it could be more perfect. Those pudgy two year old hands are so precious and Alena’s chubby little cheeks are adorable. So much love!
This girl…. oh my is she adorable! And so pretty in pink. Charlotte was a Mother’s Day baby – I cannot imagine a more perfect gift!
Sweet little parts – perfect ears, eyes, toes and fingers!
The pink bow came by special request from Mom. I cannot always meet requests, but if given enough time, I try. They prompt me to try new things and pick props and poses I may not have considered. This came out more perfect than I expected. All wrapped up with a bow on top – as I said, Charlotte was the perfect gift!
Jack has been coming to see me for a few years. Now he has his three month old brother Charlie tagging along…. and you all know how much I love watching the families in my studio grow! These two are so precious together – Jack is showing his little brother all the love!
And this little guy! Our photo session and all that brotherly love clearly wore him out.
This month they will leave me and Richmond for their new home in Kansas. Jack & Charlie’s parents bravely serve in the Army and its time to move west. We will miss them so much!
I was so excited when Emma’s mom contacted me and said she wanted to do her session at a local farm. How fun is that! And not to mention beautiful. The owner of this farm in Powhatan was so gracious to invite us onto his property to enjoy the views. The family has several grandchildren themselves and every bit was set up to be a kid wonderland – from the friendly animals to the colorful garden. And little Emma came up to task with her super cute cowboy boots. Still not sure if she loved all the animals but they certainly loved her. Whats not to love – she is adorable! Emma and her family were a joy to work with.
PS – I love goats (and alpacas and sheep for that matter). The have crazy eyes. Emma and this goat – too much.
This little guy first came to me as a newborn and I cannot believe he is 2 already. I think he knew how super cute he was because he seems to have a bit of a model swagger. So awesome this kid and so many sweet moments with his Mom (who, like so many of us, seems to get left out of the family photos). And I love that jersey – custom made by his Mom. It says “Legendary 2014” on the front with his last name on the back. It’s perfect.
