I have worked with Cat on a few projects over the years, so I was thrilled to get the phone call that she had just gotten engaged and that she wanted me to photograph their announcement/save the date/engagement photos! When she said I was one of the first people to know about their engagement, I felt even more honored to play a little part in telling their story! Cat and James are both singers and so we absolutely had to incorporate music in their session. All the details, from her guitar and his music sheets, all the way to Cat’s glitter lips, they totally made the session their own and the train station backdrop was perfect and just made the portraits that much more visually interesting. I had so much fun working with this gorgeous couple and am so happy they have found each other! Here are a few highlights from their Richmond engagement session!
My fall schedule has been super hectic trying to keep up with sessions and I fell a bit behind on blogging. This session took place at Yorktown Beach over the summer, which is the cutest little spot! I had so much fun photographing them as we strolled through the town and the kids played in the sand on the beach. I posted a video slideshow to my facebook page also that showcased some of my favorite images from their session. I had SO MANY favorites, so it’s definitely worth taking the time to look! You can view the slideshow here. These are the moments I love in life.

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!

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!
