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.  ❤
