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!

Portrait Session – Doswell, VA

Jenna contacted me last year to book a family session with her best friend Tenney to document their bond after some trying times.  She loves cherry blossoms, so we scheduled her during their peak bloom on our farm in Doswell, VA.  The weather was beautiful, Tenney was full of energy, and we had the best time giggling at his many expressions and antics.  Jenna’s metal grouping turned out absolutely breathtaking.  The reclaimed barn wood frames that we selected to compliment her chosen images were stunning too.  One of my favorite pieces to date so far!  You can see a quick cell pic I posted to my Facebook page from when I received her order.  I couldn’t resist because it was just so perfect!  Here is a quick peek at a few highlights from their family portrait session.

Mommy + Me Session – Doswell, VA

I had a few absolutely amazing sessions while our cherry blossom was in full bloom and we had some gorgeous weather to go along with it, thankfully!  I had so much fun chasing the light with this session, and this sweet little girl just adored the “princess dresses” she got to borrow from my client closet!  I created a little video to go along with this session also (viewable here).  Try not to smile or tear up thinking about your own children and how fast they grow!  It’s impossible!

Mommy & Me Session – Doswell, VA

It’s always been such a wonderful and privileged feeling to watch my repeat clients’ little ones grow up over the years.  I got to work with one of my favorite families again recently, and it is just amazing how fast time goes when you have children!  There are really no words to describe how happy it makes me to have clients come back year after year, because I really enjoy watching these kids grow up so much.

I had the honor of photographing this beautiful mama and her boys again at my farm in Doswell, and it was the. best. day.  Beautiful weather with some gorgeous sunshine after all the rain we’ve been having, and we just went on a walk and had FUN!  I’ve been incorporating short video clips into my sessions to further document these sweet little memories, and am pleased to offer this new service for my upcoming sessions.  If you haven’t watched their clip yet, hop on over to my Facebook page and check it out!

For now, here are some of the images from their session!  Check out this link to view a slideshow with more images.  I hope I accurately portrayed just how much love this family has between them.  ❤

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.

One Year Session – Beaverdam, VA

I’ve been photographing the Hollender family for years now, and did this adorable little girl’s newborn pictures last summer!  Look how big she is now!  Her mama and I collaborated on styling for this session.  I found the perfect little dress with a beautiful lace back, and we incorporated the headband she wore in her newborn photos for a familiar touch and to showcase her growth.  They wanted some pictures of their amazingly sweet older dog as well, and we got some really lovable, soulful portraits of him, as well as some heart warming pictures of the two of them together.  I’m so excited to see their final images in print form for their gallery wall!

Teen Session – Doswell, VA

I had the pleasure of photographing Ashby’s sister’s over the summer (view their amazing ballerina unicorn session here), and I was over the moon to be asked to photograph Ashby in his element.  This country-inspired session was photographed on my farm in Doswell (just north of Richmond, VA), and we were able to bring to life Ashby’s current interests, personality, mannerisms– everything a mama would want to remember years from now.  I LOVE the way these turned out and we had some absolutely beautiful light to end the session with!
