Ava {9 days new} – Newborn Photography – Richmond, VA

My goodness, look at this little bundle of cute.  Meet 9 day old Ava.  She joined me in the studio for her newborn session at just 6 lbs.    She was just sweet as a pea.

She brought along her brother, Kai, who I had the joy of photographing when he was a baby.  They grow up so fast.  And then they get sisters!  Kai was a little unsure about his new sister, but he was still so sweet to her.

Ava’s mom has a fabulous style and brought along a bunch of super cute things to dress her little doll up in.  She looks perfect in these blues and aquas.  And totally prompted me to add more florals to the studio selection.  (Ok, lets just be honest, it doesn’t take much for me to add the the prop collection, I love new stuff in the studio!)

There she is, Miss Ava.  My goodness, she looks so tiny.  And her mom – you can see all the love.  It was so great to share these moments with this family – love seeing them grow together!

 

Brendan & Connor {1 Year} – Children’s Photography – Richmond, VA

Oh my these two!  I get to have an adventure with these two growing boys (and their family) every few months and it is always such a blast.  This time we were gathering to celebrate little Connor’s first birthday.  But first, here are Brendan and Connor, sharing all their sweet smiles, precious energy and hugs.  So many hugs – maybe its love, maybe is a tackle, sometimes with boys its hard to tell.

Then we took the time to grab some family shots.  I love that this family always wants to get mom and dad in the mix.  They are such a beautiful family.

Then there was cake!  BIRTHDAY CAKE!  Connor was so funny about this cake.  It was so fun to watch him explore it.  At the end Brendan jumped in to help.  Connor may not have been so sure what to do with that pile of cake and icing, but Brendan knew.  It was perfection – Happy Birthday Connor!

 

 

Aizley {5 days new} – Newborn Photography, Richmond, VA

Baby Aizley could not have been more perfect for her newborn photography session.  She decided to join her family two weeks early and then came to see me at just 5 days old.  And in her age and wisdom, she was the prefect baby model.  Calm and peaceful for our entire newborn session.

She also brought her less calm, but equally adorable, big brother Grayson.  Grayson came to me just a few years ago for newborn pictures too.  Now he is all grown up and ready to be a big brother.  And he is great at it.  They were precious together.

Aizley brought along this precious mermaid costume.  Yup, her mom loves the bright colors.  And I love that coral starfish.  And those sweet kissy lips.

Her brother had a similar blanket as his session.  Oh and there he is!  Look how little he was.    They were both so cute as newborns.  And I love these sweet blankets.

So many peaceful moments with Aizley.  She really was a doll.    It has been so amazing to grow with this family.   They are wonderful people… and they make super cute kids.

 

 

 

 

 

Vivian {11 days new} – Newborn Photography – Richmond, VA

The boy streak has been broken!  There has not been a little girl in the studio for newborn pictures in soooo long.  So many adorable bows going unused.  So I was so excited to see this family again, and welcome this beautiful baby girl into the studio.  Meet 11 day old Baby Vivian!

At eleven days old, Vivian was all the snuggles at our newborn photography session.  Love this mint blanket her mom brought with her.  Such a lovely color and perfect for sweet Vivian.  Look at those little fingers.

Mom and dad moments are so important.  It all happens so fast.  Babies grow so quickly, so I love capturing these pictures with the newborns that visit Little Loves.  That sweet, tiny face  – so perfect!  So loved.

Our maternity session was so fun, so I knew our newborn pictures would be the same.  All the difference a few weeks cam make in the world.  So great to work with this family.  Welcome little Vivian – look forward to watching you grow for years to come!

Luke & Alena {family} – Family Photography – Richmond, VA

Luke and Alena have been coming to visit Little Loves for quite a while now and they are truly a joy to photograph.  They are all smiles and sweetness and just so cute together.   Are you seeing all this love?!?!  It just goes on and on.  They are adorable.

Big brother Luke is all smiles.  He is sweet and protective of his sister.   And all about the pictures.

Alena was a bit less sure of me at first.  It was a bit more of a game with her.  But by the end she as all hugs.  What a precious little girl!  Always enjoy my time with this family.  So glad to have then brighten my Spring!

 

 

 

Chambers & Coen {family} – Family Photography – Richmond, VA

What a super fun session, a little hot, but so much fun.  This cute and smiley little guy is Coen.  Love those chubby little legs.

And this is his sweet, inquisitive brother Chambers. This kid had so much to say and it was all delightful. We were fortunate enough to be at the Farm for their family photography session while the sheep were out.  So Chambers got to make a new friend.

And this is brothers Coen and Chambers together.  Let’s be honest, getting pictures of these two brothers together…. it was a bit like herding sheep.

This family was so fun.  Lots of laughs, some silliness and some giggles. I love how all these family photographs came out.  They are perfect together.

Amauri {1 year} – Family Photography, Richmond, VA

Oh my goodness, photographing this kid is such a hoot.  Probably because his mom does all the crazy behind me to get him to smile.  Actually, I cannot see her, so I don’t know what she is doing.  But whatever it is, this kid…. the smiles are hard to come be.    But still, he is adorable.   And check him out showing off those standing skills during our birthday photography session.

He has worn that same bow-tie for all his sessions since his newborn session.  The big green bow-tie is not so big anymore.

To finish off our awesome year together, there was cake.  Oh my, this cake.   Amauri likes to be very serious with me.  And his pursuit of this cake was just the same.  He seriously loved it.    He was all about this cake.    Happy Birthday Amauri – I am so honored to have shared this first year in pictures with you!

Conor {6 day new} – Newborn Photography – Richmond, VA

What a joy this newborn photography session was.  Baby Conor is simple adorable.  And he was perfectly behaved.   Look at all this sweetness!

We had to try that bow-tie.  At six days he was so tiny and that blue polka-dot bow tie looks so big.  That will change so quickly.  For now little Conor is just a baby in blue.

Conor’s parents brought along some special items for his session.   This sweet bear was brought by his grandmother.  It is similar to one his father owned as a child.  They love each other already and I love that we were able to grab this precious picture.  I know this is the beginning of many happy memories between this boy and his bear.

They also brought along this sweet fox.  It was made by Conor’s aunt.    Could it be more perfect.  And clearly little Conor loves it so.

Love all these precious moments with newborn Conor.  He was a joy to photography.    It was such a joy to meet his lovely family and spend some time with him.  I look forward to having this little guy back in the studio soon.

 

Spring Mini Sessions {2018}

Spring Minis are always awesome!  What better way to usher in warm weather and new growth.  The first weekend of these spring photography sessions were perfect.    It was a joy to take these families to Forest Hill Park.

Meet Miss Olivia.  She is always a joy to photography.  This time she was all smiles.  ALL SMILES.    She is just perfection – as sweet as she is beautiful!

MINI SESSION - Olivia

It was so fun to get to know this family.  Meet twins Nolan and Brooks, and their big sister Kingley.  These two could not have had more different personalities, and they never broke character.   And big sister , she was a total sweetheart.

MINI SESSION -KBC

Baby Jacob was in just a few weeks ago and came back at just a month with cousins,   These girls were so much fun and so sweet to their little cousin.  So proud and so careful.

MINI SESSION- Jacob

It seems like just yesterday that Reese, and her little sister Lydia, were at my studio for Lydia’s newborn session.  But here they are, just six months later, for the Spring minis and look how that girl has grown.  Beautiful smile and awesome sitting skills.  And Reese is such an energetic big sister, with the best pony tail ever.

MINI SESSION - LR

These two are just a delight and so sweet together.  They just beamed to be around each other and had so many laughs.  This is Julia and her big brother Trey.  Love her glowing eyes and his handsome smile.  They are spitting images of their parents.

MINI SESSION - JT

The word of the day for young Clayton was “No”.  The most consistent and repetitive two year old “No” I have heard in a while.  And despite his resistance, he was so adorable.  Then we introduced a new word – “basket”.  Who knew that basket would make him so happy!

MINI SESSION - Clayton

Miles and Savannah join me for so many of my Mini-Sessions and I just adore seeing them each and every time.  They are precious together.  This time their mom brought hats – oh my goodness, love these two with hats.  And flowers – Savannah is just all Spring with those flowers.

MINI SESSION - SM

Finishing up these great Spring Mini Family Photography sessions with this beautiful family.  Sisters, Miranda and Kaylee, and their super, smiley brother Cayden.  This family is so fun and these kids are amazing together.

It seems like Sping has flown by here at the studio.  Looking forward to starting summer – can you believe school is almost over??!?!?  Look  forward to seeing you all at the Fall Minis – look fora n announcement later this summer.

Jocelyn {maternity} – Maternity Photography – Richmond, VA

This mama is due any day now, but a few weeks ago we got to spend some time together as she enjoyed her pregnancy.  She was simply stunning for our maternity pictures.  Meet Jocelyn, and her loving husband Jason.  How cute are these too?!?  And that bump – its adorable.

Our sunset maternity session was perfect at Midlo-Mines.  Such a perfect place to capture their joy.  And that kiss – I didn’t even have to ask.  But I did have to catch them, because he just kept leaning over to kiss her.   So much love and she is simply beautiful.

Jocelyn and Jason will be joining me at the studio for their newborn photographs soon.  I cannot wait to see them and meet their little girl.  They are clearly going to be amazing parents.
