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!

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!

We had some fantastic weather for this family session at my farm. I love the beautiful golden light we get here. We sure did luck out when we bought this place– as a family photographer, I couldn’t ask for a more perfect scene! We laughed and played and twirled. I can’t wait to see this finished gallery wall in print!
I’m basically the luckiest girl in the world because I got to snuggle this adorable Great Dane puppy for a couple hours while we were doing his “newborn portraits”. He may not be exactly a newborn anymore, but he’s only … Continue reading →
With the warmer weather here in Richmond this week (in FEBRUARY, for crying out loud), I have been itching to get started on my spring sessions. I have been keeping busy this winter between launching my new product lineup and also hosting boudoir marathons (which were INCREDIBLY fun, so if you’re looking for a boudoir photographer in Virginia, hit up your girl here!). I am hosting another boudoir marathon on Saturday, March 18, so if you’re interested in participating, you can e-mail me or join my private, ladies only boudoir group on Facebook for more details and updates.
Anyways, I have a lot planned for my business this year! I am excited about creating new session experiences, themes, and also brand new wall art options to display everything. They have been very well received by the new clients I’ve had so far this year, so I am super excited to show all of my returning clients that are already on the books for the spring and summer. I am beginning to book heavily into April and May, so if you are interested in booking a family session, unicorn session, or have something else in mind, don’t wait to contact me!
So I thought I had completed my day of mini sessions for this year… and then I stumbled upon this ADORABLE sleigh and just had to offer these sessions to you guys! Seriously, they are so perfect! If you want unique Christmas cards, prints or books for the grandparents, or true heirloom pieces to pass down to your kids, this is it!! I will not have time to schedule individual ordering appointments before the holidays, so the creative fee is only $500 and includes 30 minutes AND 5 high resolution digitals! I can only take on a few more sessions to make it before the Christmas deadline, so if you are interested in booking, please contact me as soon as possible!
I’ve been slammed lately with sessions (as is every other photographer in October/November), so while I’ve been working on new sessions, I thought I’d take a quick break to blog one of my favorite sessions from this summer. I’ve been working with this awesome little family on their Grow With Me sessions for their twin boys for almost two years now! It has been so amazing to watch these boys grow up. They were just babies when I first met them, and now they’ve grown into the sweet little gentlemen. We had this session at Belle Isle in Richmond, VA and it was the perfect location to capture these little moments. These sweet boys held my hand to help me across the rocks and seriously melted my heart. Here is a little peek from their playful family session.
Amanda and Wes had a beautiful, intimate wedding at a picturesque farm named Bandit’s Ridge in Louisa, Virginia. It was a perfect day, with sweet little details that held true to their laid back and country style. Both families felt the void of family members that had passed before their time, and the tears of both grief and happiness flowed freely from everyone’s eyes. They say butterflies signify those that have passed on… and wouldn’t you know, a black and blue butterfly visited us during the family formals and first landed on Amanda, then Wes’ beard, and even tried to stay with him for the evening by flying up his sleeve. It was amazing. I had a great time photographing this wedding with all the love and emotion in the air and now am so happy to be able to share a few of the highlights with you!
Maternity sessions are seriously one of my favorite types of sessions to photograph. I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous girl for her maternity session. We started out with some beautiful airy photos and then as the sun set, we went for a more dramatic look. When her husband playfully suggested a “majestic” pose, we knew we had to incorporate my unicorn and really go all out with it. I love a good sport 😉
I am excited to announce that I am now publicly booking for my Story Time With Santa sessions! Santa Claus last year was AWESOME, and I had so many requests to host this event again this year that I couldn’t say no. Each session includes a complimentary wardrobe and styling consultation, a 20 minute personalized play date with Santa, and a private ordering appointment, which is the perfect opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done for family!
I am also still taking on a handful of bookings for my $99 mini sessions. The deadline to book your session is nearing, so if you’re thinking about it, don’t wait. These have generated a ton of interest and I’m super excited to be able to help everyone get some quick, updated portraits!
Here are a few images from last year’s Santa sessions. Send me an e-mail to email@example.com for more information, pricing, and to reserve your time slot!
