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 … Continue reading

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.

Mommy + Me Session – Doswell, VA

I had a few absolutely amazing sessions while our cherry blossom was in full bloom and we had some gorgeous weather to go along with it, thankfully!  I had so much fun chasing the light with this session, and this sweet little girl just adored the “princess dresses” she got to borrow from my client closet!  I created a little video to go along with this session also (viewable here).  Try not to smile or tear up thinking about your own children and how fast they grow!  It’s impossible!

Mommy & Me Session – Doswell, VA

It’s always been such a wonderful and privileged feeling to watch my repeat clients’ little ones grow up over the years.  I got to work with one of my favorite families again recently, and it is just amazing how fast time goes when you have children!  There are really no words to describe how happy it makes me to have clients come back year after year, because I really enjoy watching these kids grow up so much.

I had the honor of photographing this beautiful mama and her boys again at my farm in Doswell, and it was the. best. day.  Beautiful weather with some gorgeous sunshine after all the rain we’ve been having, and we just went on a walk and had FUN!  I’ve been incorporating short video clips into my sessions to further document these sweet little memories, and am pleased to offer this new service for my upcoming sessions.  If you haven’t watched their clip yet, hop on over to my Facebook page and check it out!

For now, here are some of the images from their session!  Check out this link to view a slideshow with more images.  I hope I accurately portrayed just how much love this family has between them.  ❤

Family Session – Doswell, VA

This family session was so amazingly fun!  We shot at on my farm in Doswell and had the best time soaking up the golden sun on one of the last remaining warm days of the year.  I love the fun, candid photographs that we get from family sessions.  Genuine smiles, the little details and mannerisms… those are what stick out to me as a family photographer, and those are the things I want to remember as a mother myself.  These crazy kids had me cracking up behind the camera too.  Here is a little glimpse into their session.

Senior Session – Doswell, VA

Sierra’s golden hour senior session was nothing short of magical.  The spot we decided to shoot is one of my favorites because of the way the light filters through the trees and lights up the frame with yummy, warm sunshine-y goodness!  Check out this little preview of her portrait session!
