Family Session – Doswell, VA

I had such a great time working with the Ramos’ as I photographed their gorgeous family on my farm in the last few quiet moments before their newest addition was born.  We laughed until we cried by the end, and I loved being there to capture these moments for them.  Here are just a few highlights from their family session.

Unicorn Session – Doswell, VA

Catching up on blog entries here and am so excited to share some of my recent work as I go through all of my summer sessions!  I had the opportunity to photograph these beautiful sisters just before the youngest sister had a unicorn-themed birthday!  Of course, our unicorn was incredibly excited to be loved on and spoiled by them, and we had the most amazing time romping around the farm while I photographed their incredible bond and their mama savored these last moments of pure childhood innocence.  I’m so glad that she will have these photographs of her gorgeous girls to look back on.  Here are some of the highlights from their gallery!

Couple’s Session – Yorktown, VA

I can’t believe I have lived in Virginia my entire life and have never been to Yorktown before (that I can remember, any way)!  I had the best time exploring the area with Ariana and Chase.  They were up for anything, so we chased the light and ended up getting some really beautiful photographs for them.  I already can’t wait to go back and shoot!  Here is a little peek at their couple’s session.

Unicorn Session – Doswell, VA

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!

Unicorn Session – Doswell, VA

I think this unicorn session is one of my favorites to date!  I had such a wonderful time getting to know this amazing little girl and creating these images with her.  Afton’s session was filled with lots of twirls, flower picking, giggles, and sunshine.  Unicorn sessions are such a special and unique way to capture childhood innocence before they grow up.  They’ve become one of my absolute favorite types of sessions to photograph.   I just love creating these magical portraits and it makes me so happy to know that they will be cherished forever ❤

Family Session – Doswell, VA

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.

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!

Sibling Session – Doswell, VA

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!

Family & Unicorn Session – Doswell, VA

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 ❤

Lifestyle portraits – Doswell, VA

Lifestyle photography is about embracing the perfectly imperfect moments of your every day life.  With the recent snow still melting, as well as the scheduled home improvement projects taking over most of our home, we spent the afternoon today hidden away, playing dinosaurs, babies, and watching Beauty & The Beast (which was one of my favorite Disney movie as a child– I totally had a matching Belle dress and book).  These are the little expressions and quirks that I will remember of my own children.  Smiles, giggles, wild hair, sweet hugs, the strange hand-down-his-shirt my son has had since he was an infant… I want to remember everything about these two.  ❤
