With summer in full swing, it’s a great opportunity to get your family portraits updated! If you’re going on vacation this year, it really is the perfect to get some updated images of your brood all together. I travel all over and would love to capture some beautiful pictures of your family on the beach, in the mountains, wherever you may be! I love working in new locations and my sessions are fully planned out in advance so everyone knows what to wear, what we’ll be doing, what types of images we are shooting for, etc. That way no one is left feeling uncertain about the session.
If you’d like to schedule your summer portrait session, please e-mail me using the contact form on this website (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will plan out an amazing session that fits your family’s style and personalities perfectly!
I have known Kristen for awhile through our horses, and I did some engagement pictures for her and her then-fiance, Josh. It was such an honor to photograph their wedding last month. They chose to get married at her parent’s home in Ashland,Virginia. It was a beautiful setting and they got married underneath a breathtaking archway that her father built, surrounded by trees, and all their loved ones, and their horses in the barn and pasture right behind them.
The wedding color was a pretty aqua, and a lot of the details were homemade, DIY. I love seeing the visions people have come to life for the final product. I also thought it was so cool that she used freshly picked flowers from the yard to put in her hair.
I always get a picture of the groom’s reaction as he is watching his bride walk down the aisle for the first time. I love watching their face, and I love watching the emotion flicker across.
The ceremony was beautiful (and HOT!) and Kristen, of course, had to have a few photos with her horses. The horses had bowties. BOW TIES. HORSE BOW TIES. Ahhhhh.
I wish Kristen and Josh the best. Thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your special day!
I’ve been in the process of getting ready for this baby, so I’ve been slowing down my sessions and it’s driving me mad. I so want to be back working consistently, despite being so ridiculously pregnant. I scheduled a couple sessions this weekend, so maybe they will do me in. Or make the baby make an appearance… we’ll see!
In the mean time, I’ve been doing some behind the scenes work on my business, coming up with some super fun ideas for spring/summer mini sessions that you will NOT want to miss out on! I will be announcing and will start booking for them in the next couple months, so keep your eyes peeled. I am SO excited for it!
I’ve also been taking this downtime to do some learning, and am super psyched to be able to put all this new knowledge to use once I can get myself around. I may be doing some casting calls in the near future as well, so if you’re interested, make sure you have liked my page AND hit the ‘follow page’ button at the top since Facebook won’t show you most of my posts.
I’m posting this from my phone, so the quality won’t be great, but I’ll leave you with a photo I took the other day 🙂
I did some photos for the Daltons a couple days ago, and holy MOLY is their 8 month old baby boy adorable! This was my first time working with this awesome little family– they told me they hadn’t had professional photos taken of him since he was born. This little stud is a natural model though– he definitely knew how to work the camera. I think his parents may need to start bringing him around more often! 😉 We started outside taking a few family photos, and a few with just Booker before heading inside because it was pretty chilly and miserable out. Because seriously, how could you say no to this face?
Once we came in, Booker was a pro. He LOVED wearing those sunglasses. They had the most adorable little 3 piece suit and tie for him for some early Easter pictures. I wish I could share every picture I took of this kid, that’s how cute and photogenic he was… but I will save some suspense for his parents when they get the CD once I finish editing them all. Here’s a sneak peek of his photoshoot!
Aaaaaaaaand here is my kid attempting to photo bomb his session.
Finally the weekend! Can I get a hallelujah?! We had a long, boring week at home. The good news is that our kitchen, living room and laundry room are no longer a construction zone! Hopefully the rest of the house will soon be done and we can get back to life as we know it. I am already dying to spring clean and get some major organization done, but it’s pretty pointless at this point with things being shuffled back and forth between rooms while waiting for the floors to be completed. But soon!
Took some photos this morning while hubby spent time making pancakes and turkey bacon for breakfast. Kellan spent his time smearing it all over his face and chair, then finally dropping pieces for the ever-hopeful dogs. No where else in the world I would rather be. ❤
“I can’t remember all the times I try to tell myself to hold on to these moments as they pass…”
Sitting here listening to the rain and sharing a bowl of spaghetti-o’s with my little man. I’m glad I fed him these before I gave him a bath, as he’s wearing most of them, but I wouldn’t have it any other … Continue reading →
I took little Trent’s 6 month photos last weekend. His parents have opted to take advantage of my Baby’s First Year package, which includes a photo session at birth, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months old. I SO enjoy the babies I am lucky enough to photograph on a regular basis. I love watching them grow up and I love knowing that years from now, they will be looking back on these photos… showing them to their kids… their grandchildren. I personally love looking at old family photos, so I am glad this trend of having family memories professionally documented has taken off.
My own little man turned 9 months TODAY! It is so crazy how time flies. He is standing (holding onto something), crawling, sounding out words (BAAAAAAA for “ball”, CCCCCCCC for “cat”, etc.), knows how to give high fives, kisses (sloppy and open mouth, but still adorable, nonetheless), loves showing his muscles with a loud grunt, already shakes his head no at me, waves “hi” and “bye”, and he LOVES food. My goodness, does this child love food. We lovingly refer to him as the “garbage disposal”. I swear this kid could out eat any of us. He’s got two bottom teeth, and yesterday I noticed two top ones that will soon make their appearance. Hopefully soon, so he will sleep a little better.
Anyways! I will try to get some pictures of him taken today. In the meantime, here’s a couple of shots from my session with baby Trent. You can see more on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/colombophotography
