Family Session – Doswell, VA

This family session took place on my farm on a day that was 105 degrees!  We decided to push through, and I’m so glad we did.  Valerie and Hans are dog trainers and own a kennel in Richmond.  They wanted to include ALL of their babies in their family session.  It was a little tricky to get everyone positioned at times, but we made it work and I absolutely adore all the images from this session.  We had so much fun running around, being goofy, and because of the extreme heat, we decided to create our own little rain shower and allow their sweet daughter to dance in the “rain”.  The sunlight in these photographs is so gorgeous, but the love you see radiating from this family is even brighter.

Strawberry Session – Doswell, VA

I’m not sure about yours, but my kids could eat an entire carton of strawberries in about 10 minutes flat.  Sitting there watching them wolfing them down, giggling and sharing toddler jokes, I decided to pull some things together to style a session that would allow me to photograph a little memory of the way they are right now.  Their love for each other (for now, haha), and all the little sweet details like wrist rolls, their long, dark eyelashes, and adorable mannerisms that make my heart melt into a big old sappy puddle.  I wonder if she will still cross her ankles like this when she’s grown, or still look up to her brother like he’s the greatest person that ever walked the planet, or if he will be so silly but affectionate with her always.  Can they stop growing now, please?  Here is a tiny peek at some images from their strawberry session ❤

Unicorn Session – Doswell, VA

Little Ashlyn may go down in the record books for being the most well-behaved almost-four year old I have ever photographed!  As a family photographer, I usually have a big old bag of tricks up my sleeve when it comes to photographing toddlers, because they can be so unpredictable, but she calmly and quietly listened to every thing I said without a fuss!  Here’s a little peek at her whimsical unicorn session!

Mommy & Me Session with Unicorn – Doswell, VA

Renee contacted me because her daughter was turning 3 and having a “Rainbows & Unicorns” birthday party, which of course, is my all time favorite theme!  She selected the rose gold sequined top dress with full tulle skirt from my Client Closet for her Devyn to wear.   I had such a blast playing with and photographing Devyn, as she has this amazingly sweet and larger than life personality.  I am so happy to be able to capture these memories for them to have forever.  Here is a look at some of the hand-edited images from their session!

The candid and playful shots were just as fun!  I just adore photographing children at this age.  They usually make me work for it, but we have such a good time!  Devyn got to change into her adorable birthday outfit at the end, and the matching brag books will certainly be a special keepsake for her to have as she grows up!
