Spring Minis l Glen Allen, Va Family Photographer

This past Sunday I hosted my first set of minis of the year….SPRING ONES!!! And boy oh boy was it the perfect day for these sessions. The morning was crisp and so quiet, and they even had some of the animals out at the park. I didn’t realize until all my sessions were done, but all of my families all have little boys….LOL. All of these boys are all so full of life, which to me is so precious.

 Absolutely LOVE Luke’s wild man hair.
 Noah in all of his cuteness, even if he didn’t want to smile. πŸ™‚
 He wanted to play peek a boo instead
 Aren’t Mom and Dad so cute??

The Carter’s:
 Can you believe Trey is only 4, look at how tall he is…

 The Place’s:
Happiest baby award goes to Jaiden!!
 I wish I had a behind the scenes picture to these, as I got to hold Jaiden on my left hip, and was still able to capture a few pictures for just mom and dad. πŸ™‚
 And he will be celebrating his ONE year birthday soon πŸ™‚
 And sometimes you just have to let moments happen…….

The Wright’s:
LOVED Hunter in his little hat.
 This is what Hunter really thought about pictures……and why I absolutely LOVE toddlers, they are going to just be themselves 100%

Thank you all for coming out for these minis, I had so much fun with y’all.

Sneak peek to Fall minis l Richmond, Louisa, Charlottesville, Va Family Photographer

My Fall mini sessions this year were SOOOO much fun. I love watching my clients’ families grow, and meeting new ones. πŸ™‚

From Crump Park to Carter’s Mountain, I was a traveling fool this week, plus a wedding on top on it.
I love both places for the scenery and the Fall feel. Although Carter’s Mountain is a bit cooler due to altitude, which I will remember for next year.

A HUGE thank you to all that I got to spend time with during this weekend, I catching up with every one.

 Love watching Mister Brantley grow in pictures πŸ™‚

 FAV!!!!

 This is Leanne and Mark’s third or forth Fall mini session with me, I look forward to seeing them every year, including Oliver. πŸ™‚ Love the flannel this year Leanne.

FAV!

 Look at their little family!!!! πŸ™‚

 Loved finally meeting this family!!

Those blue eyes…. <3

 

 Oh Miss Maddie, you just melt my heart!!

 This is how she feels about taking pictures, lol!
 FAV!
I call this real life during a photo session with a toddler πŸ™‚

 Hayden has grown up so much since the last time I saw him.

 Sometimes you just have to let life happen during a session….

 Now this is the ham I know πŸ™‚
 Such a cutie, with his big blue eyes!

Stacy’s Vintage Styled Session l Glen Allen, Va Portrait Photographer

I couldn’t wait to post and blog about this session. As I begin planning this months ago, I wanted to use a few models for this. As my go to girl, Katelyn, works in the evenings until 6, she was not able to attend this one, but my lovely friend Stacy was SOOO excited for this session. I am working with Stacy a lot this year, with her cute son Brycen that I get to see at least once a month. πŸ™‚ This session was to be ALL about her, and what woman doesn’t need just a few photos just about her!! Since Stacy has AMAZING fire red hair, I decided to go with more of a hollywood glam style hair to show off her long locks. As yesterday was a lot of firsts for Stacy, first time for fake eye lashes, red lips, and CORSET!! Believe it or not, she is THREE months postpartum and look at how FANTASTIC she looks!!!!!

Look at those eyes!

 FAV!!!

 11 bobby pins later, a quick up-do!

Timberlake Mommy & Me l Glen Allen, Va Family Photographer

I absolutely LOVE the spring time, not only for flowers and lots of green, but because I get to meet new clients for awesome sessions like this. These two little boys, aaaahhhhh, they are the cutest and so full of spunk and life.

I follow quite a few blogs, and only a few family photographers. When they say you never know what your going to get with children, they are right. And boy do they really say the darnest things, this session proved both, but help me build my skills on more non-posed images, and letting kids just be kids.

Jones Family l Glen Allen, Va Family Photographer

I have known Ashley since we were both very young. It has been such a pleasure to watch her grow into an amazing woman, wife, and mother.
I can not believe little Conard is already a year old, where has the time gone? It seems like just a few weeks ago I was taking his newborn pictures, and that is so bitter sweet for myself and Ashley I’m sure. He is quite the happy baby, which I ALWAYS LOVE! He is all boy, and 100% loveable!!!

 I always try to take a few moments for images of just mom and dad. πŸ™‚

 Told y’all he was adorable right?!?!

 hehehe that face

 He was so excited for cake, I had to have Ashley hold his hands while I got ready to snap away.

 Oh how I love baby eye lashes!
