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.

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!

This sweet family came to me for updated family portraits as well as a unicorn session with their adorable daughter. The kids were troopers dealing with the elements and we had so much fun having a little tea party with my unicorn, Poppy! My favorite part of being a family photographer in Richmond is being able to capture these milestones for families, and being able to provide beautiful, high quality print products so that their portraits may be passed down for generation. I am so excited to get their canvas grouping in and show them! It’s going to look so amazing on their wall!
I love, love working with this sweet little family of three (soon to be four)! They are seriously the cutest ever. Kelly and I have been planning out this unicorn session for quite some time now, and it honestly could not have come together any more perfectly. I just adore all the emotions captured in this gallery. And how about the adorable expressions their little girl gave us when she set her big blue eyes on Poppy the unicorn! THIS is what every childhood should be filled with! Love and a little bit of magic ❤
I found out today the official rankings of the photos I entered into the Shoot and Share contest, which is the world’s largest photography contest. I entered on a whim and using only photos that I happened to have handy on my hard drive at the time. The talent I saw during voting was absolutely insane! I was super shocked to find out that I made it as far as I did! I actually had quite a few entries that made it further than I expected, but here are the top four ranking images from my submission.
This image made Top 100 out of nearly 24,000 submissions in it’s category! ❤
This image was one of the more adventurous sessions I had in 2016 (slippery rocks over the river while carrying heavy camera gear almost had me freaking out, not gunna lie, haha). This photo was a finalist in the Lifestyle category, which had over 10,700 entries!
This was probably one of my most challenging sessions in 2016, as you can see, LOL. We had a blast and laughed the whole time, but worked hard to get the final images! This was an outtake I entered into the “That Just Happened” category, and was also a finalist in that category with 4300+ entries.
This portrait of these twin girls is one of my favorites ever. It made the top 10% in it’s category with almost 24k entries. And here are some of my badges for these particular photos, because I’m fancy. 😉
I’m basically the luckiest girl in the world because I got to snuggle this adorable Great Dane puppy for a couple hours while we were doing his “newborn portraits”. He may not be exactly a newborn anymore, but he’s only … Continue reading →
