When Heather first reached out to me for information about a maternity + newborn session collection, she had a lot of questions, but her biggest concerns were about what to wear. Heather has a more casual style but was interested in dressing up for this occasion. It didn't take her long to share her concerns about not being "very fashionable." And to be honest, she sounded a lot like myself! :) So we scheduled an in-person wardrobe consultation for her right away. She came into the studio and tried on a few dresses and also brought in a few pieces of her own favorite clothing. We worked together to create a plan for her maternity session wardrobe for her and her family that we were both excited about!

When she shared with me that she was expecting again I knew I just had to find a way to get her in front of my camera! I was so excited the day she came into the studio for her maternity session. Here are a few of my favorite pictures of our time together. We may have spent most of our time together talking, but, that's just what we do! Ha!

When Linda reached out to me to book a newborn session with me, I was so excited! I knew she had been waiting for this season of life and I was so excited to finally have the opportunity to work with her! After she secured her session with her retainer fee and contract, she contacted me and asked to add on hair and makeup services as well since she thought she might feel overwhelmed and tired as a brand new mama. (Good thinking, Linda!)

Not long after this little guy came to see me at my natural light studio in Lynchburg, VA for his newborn session, I made the one hour trip out to his home in Gretna, VA to capture what life looks like for his family now that he has made his arrival. In-home newborn sessions are reserved for clients who book 3 or more photo sessions with me in their baby's first year.

This sweet little boy is baby number five born to a household of four other boys! Can we say #boymom?! I have had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family over the past few years, including one of his older brother's newborn sessions and a few family sessions along the way! This time around, Myer's parents decided to make the most of the quietness of the studio and allow this session to be 100% focused on only Myer. They were able to relax on the couch in the lounge area and enjoy the stillness of the space while I started with his individual portraits and once those were complete, we finished up with a series of portraits with his parents loving all over him!
