Oh, my heart!! THIS session! Beautiful people, beautiful lighting, just a tad bit of heat, but hey, you'd never know it was a thousand degrees out haha!! GORGEOUS!
This was one of my FAVORITE days EVER as a photographer. I am in LOVE with these images. So, I offered a special with the launch of my new studio for Mommy & Me photos this year. This special came with digital images and access to my studio wardrobe, and let me tell you, these ladies ROCKED it! I loved this day and these images so much that I am DEFINITELY going to start offering this special annually. I can't wait for next year's sessions already! You ladies are GORGEOUS both inside and out, and I am so thrilled that you have these images that will last a lifetime. Your children will cherish these when they are older and will pass them down to their children. Thats the beauty of photography...freezing time for just a moment.
Here it is! My early "Christmas in September" shots! These are the sample shots for my mini-sessions happening in November. All spots are currently full for these sessions. Contact me if you are interested in being added to the waiting list, as I may open up a weekday spot if I get enough on my list.
I'm playing a little catch-up on my blogging game now that school is OUT, OVER, DONE! Speaking of school, I had the opportunity to work with this little lady for only a short period of time, but in that short period of time, she has become more like a friend I've known forever! This family is gorgeous in all ways!
This is one of those sessions that you just HAVE to let the session tell its story through a storyboard of photographs. This location was a dreamland for a photographer, and this family...well, they are kind, bold, astute, and downright fun! I am so thrilled to present to you the GORGEOUS photographs of the Boatmans!
Yes, yes, and more yes! I love this sweet session! I love connecting with my old students through photography. I actually taught Jessica during high school, so it was truly a treat to see her with her in Mama-mode with a precious baby boy! Bryson (aka Boogie) is just a little bit older than my boy, so I felt such a true connection to this session! This makes me want to do an entire shoot of just my boy and me! These were shot on my grandmother's farmland, and I must admit, this is truly my favorite place to shoot!
Sweet Kerr is already 1 year old! Kerr's Mom is an Agriculture teacher, and his Dad is a farmer, so where better to have this session than actually on their farm? Kerr is obviously learning from the best. Every time I take this sweet child's pictures, it is incredibly easy to capture his personality and smiles. I'm telling ya'll, this is a happy child! Also, this very first picture makes me giggle!
So, we have a family session scheduled with an AMAZING photographer friend of mine at the beginning of April, but I decided to give this a go with my new shutter remote (every other one I've had is a total piece of junk, but THIS one actually works!). Not a lot of versatility, but it's kind of hard to get tons of different angles when you're actually in the photos!
This fantastic and fun family came to visit Lisa for Christmas all the way from Florida! We had a blast hanging out with all of them and showing off all of the great downtown areas. They loved it! I especially love showing off our gorgeous bridge that connects the walking trails. In the Danville, Virginia area, we often see it, so I feel like we forget its beauty until we show it off to new-comers! Everything was also convenient to the gorgeous Burton Lofts where they were staying! Loved everything about this family and this session!
Declan is growing up so fast! I have absolutely loved watching him grow through my lens! That smile. That personality. That HAIR! Declan is truly a stunningly beautiful child with fabulous parents. This is a family with a lot of heart. They know how to make you feel at home and a part of their own family every time you meet. Thank you again for allowing me the opportunity to capture this gorgeous child and your precious memories!
This was definitely no ordinary Christmas minisession! When Tommy told me ahead of time that he was planning to ask Erica to marry him in the middle of the session, I immediately became giddy! I was full of excitement with so many questions and plans for this to go perfectly, and it sure did! These images truly speak for themselves. They paint a picture of a true Christmas love story. Grab your tissues, it's going to be an emotional ride!
