Sam and Amber had a beautiful Mechanicsville wedding last week! I loved their wedding colors and all the greens in their florals. More importantly, they had a beautiful celebration to kick off their next adventures surrounded by great friends and family! Congratulations, guys! View their highlights gallery here.
Waylon is turning one! The last time I saw him, we shot his six-month photos. It has been neat to watch all these little babies growing up so fast!
I love getting out to meet new barns, and I somehow had not yet been to Pine Crest Farm until this month, for a set of awesome horse and rider shoots with lesson riders and some boarders. This barn is right behind the facility where I did my first CVSJA jumper show quite a few years ago, out in Manakin. Beautiful place, beautiful light coming through the driveway trees, and a wonderful barn family that I enjoyed meeting of the course of several days! Thank you all for having me, Pine Crest! Here are just a few from some of those sessions.
For the second year, I got to meet and shoot the thirteen winners of the Richmond Animal League calendar contest--these winners raised thousands of dollars to support animals in need and earn a spot on the calendar! You can pre-purchase your very own 2020 RAL calendar to enjoy these cool animals all year and support a great cause. This was a fun job--I got to pet all the dogs and, of course, hang with Marlowe the cover cat! Order yours at https://www.ral.org/
L wanted her senior photos with Sampson, so that’s what we did! We got a beautiful September evening with lots of sunset light and Sampson was a good boy. Can’t beat that!
I love this family and am so excited for them as they welcome A to the family :)
We trekked out to a new spot in the field at Alvis Farms that I hadn’t used before, and there was a perfect tree behind us to diffuse the sun. I loved this spot!
As I edit through the latest round of shoots this week, I have to go ahead and share a bunch from last Thursday's mini sessions at Alvis Farms LLC. Editing this sweet mom-daughter duo made my day! We had a great time out in the sunflowers--I'm doing one more set out there tomorrow while the flowers are still in bloom, and then we will just have to wait until next year to get back out :) See lots more from this mother-daughter shoot here.
We had a great time shooting some sunflower minis at Alvis Farms in Manakin-Sabot and I’m looking forward to more later this week! Check out these awesome twins and their matching outfits—they came to me last year for sunflower photos, so it was neat to get round two in and see how much they’ve grown!

Lulu the Frenchie is having puppies soon—her announcement session is one of the most unique things I’ve gotten to shoot. We had a great time! Check out the rest of her sunsetty session here: https://laurasieglephotographyllc.passgallery.com/-lulu
Here are a few images from a recent bridal session--this bride was a trooper through a very hot evening, but we had some lovely sunset light and we got to include her awesome dog! View more from this session at https://laurasieglephotographyllc.passgallery.com/-lbridalportraits.
I recently had the opportunity to capture some special memories of Dale and Dolly for their lovely owner. It was a beautiful morning!
This couple got married at the Jamestown 4-H setting, which provided a lovely view of the James River and some handy beaches for wedding party photos. They had a beautiful day and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to capture it! View more from their day here.
It is hard to beat a barn wedding when that barn is right in the backyard of your childhood home. Erin and Will picked a beautiful day to celebrate with friends and family and they transformed their Amelia County family farm into a pretty awesome venue for a wedding day! Congratulations, guys! See more highlights from their day here.

It was great to see this little guy again—I shot his newborn images a last year :) He wasn’t so sure he wanted to get dirty, but he did find out that icing tastes pretty good.
Fall is usually a busy season, but this one was certainly the biggest I’ve ever had. Here’s a little bit of what I was up to with my “regular” portrait work, and since there were plenty of horse sessions this fall, those are in here too! Keep up with my work on Facebook.
This one is short and sweet—check out this awesome little dude!
