We photographed this beautiful family session on what might have gone down as the Windiest Day Ever in the history books for RVA. This actually ended up working out perfectly because I absolutely LOVED the movement the wind gave their hair, and we got some amazing laughs when a big gust of wind practically blew us across the courtyard. As a family photographer, it is my job to find out what you want out of each session. It was super important to Casey and Laura that we photographed their son’s adorable toothless smile to capture this milestone in his life. Clyde’s silly, mischievous personality led the way for plenty of laughs and grins and we were able to capture so many moments of fun, but also so many moments of tenderness and the strong bond he shares with his parents, whom he so obviously adores. Take a look at some of the highlights from this sweet family session in RVA!

I had the pleasure of photographing Paige and her sweet family over the summer after a family member gifted her a session with me! I felt so honored when Paige told me that she saw my work at a local children’s shop (shout out to Mom2Mom Resale Boutique in Sandston!) and she just knew she wanted me to be the one to photograph her family. We finally got to meet up and I had so much fun running through the pastures on the farm and playing with her adorable boys! This stage of motherhood is my absolute favorite and I can’t help but bring my own emotions into a shoot like this. I photograph all the things I would want to remember; the good, the naughty, the silly, and especially the quiet, tender moments. I am so honored that they chose me to document this chapter for them to hold onto forever. Here are some highlights from their family portrait session.

I was contacted for this sibling session by Phil, who was searching for a Richmond area family photographer to help them capture some fun and updated portraits of their children to hang in their home. I love working with older children because I can still draw out their silliness, but also because they tend to listen very well, which is quite a change of pace from the toddler age that I tend to photograph a lot, haha.
We got some great formal, posed portraits, but also got a little silly and captured some really fun candid shots as well. They chose the metal prints to display their images, which is a perfect choice for these vibrant portraits. Here is a quick peek at a few shots from their session!
I am excited to announce that I am now publicly booking for my Story Time With Santa sessions! Santa Claus last year was AWESOME, and I had so many requests to host this event again this year that I couldn’t say no. Each session includes a complimentary wardrobe and styling consultation, a 20 minute personalized play date with Santa, and a private ordering appointment, which is the perfect opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done for family!
I am also still taking on a handful of bookings for my $99 mini sessions. The deadline to book your session is nearing, so if you’re thinking about it, don’t wait. These have generated a ton of interest and I’m super excited to be able to help everyone get some quick, updated portraits!
Here are a few images from last year’s Santa sessions. Send me an e-mail to email@example.com for more information, pricing, and to reserve your time slot!
I had the pleasure of working with Amanda and her two adorable kids recently. They were so well behaved and just so sweet! We discussed wardrobe prior to the session and I was so happy to see that she nailed Adam’s outfit. He looked like such a little gentleman. She borrowed a dress from my Client Closet for Kendall and oh my gosh, she looked precious! That dress is perfect for twirling 😉 I have a few gorgeous dresses available for my littlest clients to borrow that look great for children’s portraits or family photos. All sessions are styled during the consultation, so if you’re clothing-impaired, don’t worry! We will get you all dressed perfectly.
Take a look at the images below and you’ll see just a few reasons why I love working with this family!
