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.
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.
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.
This session with her precious baby boy was honestly a turning point for me in my newborn work last year. I loved capturing him in his natural sleeping positions, feet curled up on his belly and his head leaning on his shoulders. It all felt so uninterrupted and I fell in love with the organic baby approach so much more as I worked through this session.
I probably sound like a broken record saying “This is one of my favorite sessions I’ve ever photographed!” but I wouldn’t be a growing artist if I couldn’t keep saying that - right? :) In all honesty, this family was so pleasant to work with. Baby Levi was an absolute gem, sleeping through his entire session! Mom and dad weren’t afraid to show him all the love and affection and they all made my job so easy to grab some great captures of their photogenic family. :)
