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.

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.

Savanah {family holiday}

I just adore he magical look on her face!  Meet little miss Savannah, almost two years old and just as cute as can be.  Look at those amazing blue eyes and those cute cheeks.  This girl was such a joy.  And we were so fortunate to have such a beautiful day to photograph her and her family this holiday season.

This family photography session was so wonderful – they were beautiful and the light was just picture perfect.  I  love the pink flower and maroon against that winter evening sky.

Savannah was all smiles.   Like all of them. And I am so thankful for that.  We were able to capture so many precious moments with her and her family.  I hope they treasure these for years to come!

Libbie & Charlotte {family} – Children’s Photography – Richmond, VA

Oh my, these girls!  Meet Libbie & Charlotte.  Their mom said they would be quick and easy to photograph…and they were.  Love a set of cuties that smiles and laugh with ease  These kids were a joy to photography and I had a great time at their session.  They remind me so much of my children – I say “picture” and the older ones throws an arm right around the others neck.  Such love!

These girls were a joy and so beautiful.  Look at those eyes!

We really had a perfect day at Crump Park.  The trees, the light, the weather.  And the addition of the coral and blue was perfect.  I love how these came out.

This family was such a pleasure.  I hope they enjoy these smiles for years to come!
