Annual Holiday Mini Sessions – Ashland, VA

Yesssss, I am aware that it’s only September, BUT you know what that means!  It’s time to start planning my annual holiday mini sessions!  And this year, SANTA IS COMING BACK to see all of my sweet littlest clients again!  We’ve been working with Santa every year for the past 4 years, and he is absolutely incredible with the children.  Each session is a 20 minute personal interaction with Santa Claus and includes TWO amazing sets (see my images from the sets below, minus Santa).  I have designed my holiday collections to each include all of your favorites! You can skip the lines with grumpy kids, get your holiday cards custom designed and printed, gifts for family members, AND snag heirloom pieces to pass down to your children with a STELLAR discount.  I ONLY do discounted products once a year for these holiday themed sessions, so don’t miss your chance.  Studio sessions without Santa are available as well.  E-mail me today for more information or to reserve your spot!  anikacolombo@gmail.com

Underwater Pool Portrait Session – Mechanicsville, VA

I met this little girl last year when she came to my annual Christmas + Santa sessions.  It’s always so much fun to see how much my little clients have grown each time I see them.  I just love so much being able to document these fun memories over the years for families.  All of the small details are just as important to capture as their larger than life smiles, from their pouty lips down to their chubby little fingers and toes.  These are the moments you will want to remember, and make up such a big part of the memories that make life so sweet.   When her mama came into the studio to see all of her images, we laughed at her daughter’s many, MANY expressions, and I am so excited to begin designing her wall space with these fun photographs of her adorable little girl over the years!

Family Session – Doswell, VA

I had such a great time working with the Ramos’ as I photographed their gorgeous family on my farm in the last few quiet moments before their newest addition was born.  We laughed until we cried by the end, and I loved being there to capture these moments for them.  Here are just a few highlights from their family session.

Unicorn Session – Doswell, VA

Catching up on blog entries here and am so excited to share some of my recent work as I go through all of my summer sessions!  I had the opportunity to photograph these beautiful sisters just before the youngest sister had a unicorn-themed birthday!  Of course, our unicorn was incredibly excited to be loved on and spoiled by them, and we had the most amazing time romping around the farm while I photographed their incredible bond and their mama savored these last moments of pure childhood innocence.  I’m so glad that she will have these photographs of her gorgeous girls to look back on.  Here are some of the highlights from their gallery!

Couple’s Session – Yorktown, VA

I can’t believe I have lived in Virginia my entire life and have never been to Yorktown before (that I can remember, any way)!  I had the best time exploring the area with Ariana and Chase.  They were up for anything, so we chased the light and ended up getting some really beautiful photographs for them.  I already can’t wait to go back and shoot!  Here is a little peek at their couple’s session.

Underwater + Adventure Photography Sessions – Richmond, VA

Now that summer is in full swing, I’ve been trying to take the opportunity to capture more of the true, authentic moments of childhood in my sessions.  Swimming at the pool, building sandcastles at the beach, running through sprinklers… all the little fun memories that will shape and define their childhood.  I am currently booking these super fun underwater sessions throughout the summer!  E-mail anikacolombo@gmail.com as soon as possible, as dates are becoming extremely limited into August!

Unicorn Session – Doswell, VA

Katie wanted to surprise her husband with some portraits of herself and their girls with my unicorn on our little farm.  We had the best time dancing in the fields and enjoying the warm sunshine.  The girls did amazing and their session resulted in some absolutely stunning images that they selected on metal prints for their walls (metal wall art for the grandparents too!).  I’m so excited to finally share a few images from this fun afternoon!

Unicorn + Family Session – Doswell, VA

It’s no secret that the weather in Virginia lately has been a bit of a wet blanket lately (haha… see what I did there?), especially for photographers trying to get in all of their spring and early summer sessions!  We lucked out with some dry weather and a happy toddler to create some sweet memories of this adorable family.  I had such a fun time with them and their beautiful little girl!  We got some of the cutest little expressions from her.  Here is a little peek at their super cute family and unicorn session!

PS– this dress is now available for use in my client closet!  Isn’t it gorgeous??

Unicorn Session – Doswell, VA

I think this unicorn session is one of my favorites to date!  I had such a wonderful time getting to know this amazing little girl and creating these images with her.  Afton’s session was filled with lots of twirls, flower picking, giggles, and sunshine.  Unicorn sessions are such a special and unique way to capture childhood innocence before they grow up.  They’ve become one of my absolute favorite types of sessions to photograph.   I just love creating these magical portraits and it makes me so happy to know that they will be cherished forever ❤

Portrait Session – Doswell, VA

Jenna contacted me last year to book a family session with her best friend Tenney to document their bond after some trying times.  She loves cherry blossoms, so we scheduled her during their peak bloom on our farm in Doswell, VA.  The weather was beautiful, Tenney was full of energy, and we had the best time giggling at his many expressions and antics.  Jenna’s metal grouping turned out absolutely breathtaking.  The reclaimed barn wood frames that we selected to compliment her chosen images were stunning too.  One of my favorite pieces to date so far!  You can see a quick cell pic I posted to my Facebook page from when I received her order.  I couldn’t resist because it was just so perfect!  Here is a quick peek at a few highlights from their family portrait session.
