I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable little girl recently. She is as sweet as can be and was shy in the beginning, which is very understandable for a kid meeting a new person! I was very shy as a kid, so I feel like I know how to relate and can draw out their personalities… in their own time, of course. Once they see me jumping all over and rolling on the ground like a ninja, me and my big camera just aren’t so scary anymore 😉 We had such a fun time playing together and creating these beautiful images. Watching her dance around like no one was watching and without a care in the world made my heart so happy! We should all live like this.
It’s no secret that the weather in Virginia lately has been a bit of a wet blanket lately (haha… see what I did there?), especially for photographers trying to get in all of their spring and early summer sessions! We lucked out with some dry weather and a happy toddler to create some sweet memories of this adorable family. I had such a fun time with them and their beautiful little girl! We got some of the cutest little expressions from her. Here is a little peek at their super cute family and unicorn session!
PS– this dress is now available for use in my client closet! Isn’t it gorgeous??

I don’t usually shoot at high noon, but the other afternoon my kids were driving me a little batty. We decided to have an “adventure” and I brought out my camera to play a little myself. We set up a little play tent in the pasture and giggled, skipped, and rolled around in the dirt (yes, me too… ever seen me shoot? Haha).
I hope that when my kids reminisce about their childhood, they remember magic, laughter, wonder, and the love in these little moments. They’re growing up so, so fast.

I’m not sure about yours, but my kids could eat an entire carton of strawberries in about 10 minutes flat. Sitting there watching them wolfing them down, giggling and sharing toddler jokes, I decided to pull some things together to style a session that would allow me to photograph a little memory of the way they are right now. Their love for each other (for now, haha), and all the little sweet details like wrist rolls, their long, dark eyelashes, and adorable mannerisms that make my heart melt into a big old sappy puddle. I wonder if she will still cross her ankles like this when she’s grown, or still look up to her brother like he’s the greatest person that ever walked the planet, or if he will be so silly but affectionate with her always. Can they stop growing now, please? Here is a tiny peek at some images from their strawberry session ❤
