Meet Charis - the New Studio Assistant!

Meet Charis - the New Studio Assistant!

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have seen way too many photos of this girl and this blog post is not news to you. BUT, instagram is really the only place I’ve shared much about our newest family member, Charis. (Well there was that one night she went missing and I posted on Facebook for help finding her and the post was shared over 1k times… whaaaat? And we DID find her!)

So for those of you who haven’t been formally introduced…

Meet Charis!

Foster & Charlotte’s Twin Milestone Session

Foster & Charlotte’s Twin Milestone Session

Twins! Double the fun - for sure! I laughed so much during this session with Katie, Evan and their babies Foster and Charlotte. We photographed their milestone session in a field near the studio in Forest, Virginia. These sweet babies personalities are so different and if that’s not entertaining enough, each of them has the most adorable facial expressions that had me giggling nonstop! I couldn’t get enough of this sweet family and I really enjoyed our time together during their sunset session.

Reese's Newborn Session at The Studio

Reese's Newborn Session at The Studio

Oh I adore this family newborn shoot!

When Whitney first inquired, she shared with me that she had a challenging experience for their oldest’s newborn session years earlier. While I am always on a mission to ease any stress my clients may have, I was really focused on this for Whitney’s sake. I know even the thought of planning for and arriving to the session was causing her noticeable stress and I don’t feel it should ever be that way for anyone! I work hard to create a calm and relaxing environment by thinking about all the elements of your shoot before you do and having as many solutions lined up as possible.

Samantha’s Winter Maternity Session

Samantha’s Winter Maternity Session

I am so excited to share this gorgeous maternity session in the field with you!

All potential (and of course booked) clients are encouraged to schedule a studio consultation to meet with me and talk through options for your portrait session. Your options can range from locations to group photo combination varieties as well as clothing options. During Samantha’s consultation she told me right away she knew she wanted her maternity session in the field so we spent out time focused mostly on her clothing options. When she stepped out from the wardrobe dressing area wearing the pink dress and white sweater cardigan you see below, I am pretty sure I let out an audible gasp.
