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.

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.  ❤

Strawberry Session – Doswell, VA

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 ❤

Lifestyle photos – Vacation in Rodanthe, NC

I’ve been gearing up for the busy fall season and trying to put together my annual mini session event, and it’s making me already miss summer!  And it’s barely September!  So today’s blog post is a throw back to our beach vacation earlier this summer in Rodanthe.  I always want to remember all the little mundane details that make up our lives, so I hauled my camera with us to the pizzeria down the street and made sure to capture all the little details and mannerisms of my little humans.  Little wrist rolls, long eye lashes, the way she holds her cups, the way he curiously studies everything…  I’ll remember 🙂
