If you’ve ever worked with me, chances are you’ve seen my childlike reaction to good light, beautiful moments, and genuine interaction: a bit of giddiness that sounds a lot like a broken record. I can’t help myself! I get so excited when the image I have had in my head comes out so seamlessly while I’m shooting! I am so thankful to work with clients who trust me from the very first step to guide them to a final product of high quality imagery.
On occasion I will hear from a mom who has experienced something all mamas do: a sudden urge to freeze time as soon as humanly possible in the form of professional pictures. This mama will reach out to me and and asks me to squeeze her into my schedule right away. If I can, I do. And if I can’t, I offer my next available date!
This little sweet pea came earlier than her everyone expected and she was a teeny little thing! I had such a lovely time both snuggling her and of course photographing her. I don’t always get to snuggle babies if they arrive asleep and ready for their close-up. Usually I just scoop them right onto the beanbag and get to work! But if they are awake I get to have some snuggles while I try to put them back to sleep and I love those opportunities!
If you have ever had a photo shoot with me and choose to add-on professional hair and make-up, you have probably met Emily! Emily is a mama of five, a talented hair and make-up artist, and one of the most down to earth people I have ever met. I love every chance we get to chat and catch up on life in between running our own businesses! I loved collaborating with her on this shoot and capturing the vision she had for it! This summer maternity session in a field was full of dreamy sunset light and intimate moments.
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.
