2018 Fall and Winter Family Photo Catch-Up...and More Ponies!

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.

Maternity, Family, and...Donkey!

It's not every day that you get photobombed by a donkey during a session, but this was that day! I met Nicole a while back when she did the bride's hair for a wedding I shot, so it was neat to meet up again for a maternity shoot with her family! We enjoyed our little visitor in one of the fields at BB Equestrian, too. I usually share a winner, but why not an outtake? Of course, you can see a few more of the "keepers" here

Richmond Maternity Session Outtakes

Amber + Clayton | Maternity

I was worried about an incoming storm during Amber and Clayton's shoot, but the moodier light we got turned this session into one of my all-time favorites. The water was a fitting backdrop, as their baby will probably spend some time enjoying kayaking with them later on! They are looking forward to meeting their little one soon! See their gallery here.

Puppies and Dancers

I've shot a lot of unique sessions, but this was a first--Taylor and Fallon gave me the opportunity to capture outdoor dance images as well as some family images with their new puppies, who were perfectly behaved throughout. These girls made ballet with pointe shoes and leotards in an outdoor park look easy. See more dance images from the session here and family and puppy images here

Dairy Farm Mini Sessions

Last fall, I joined up with my friends at Richlands Dairy Farm in Blackstone to offer dairy farm mini sessions during their fall festival--we had so much fun that we decided to offer them again during the farm's June Family Farm Day!

Polly Pocket, Wink, and Friends - Holiday Horse Mini Portrait Sessions at Zephyr's Way Stable

I had a great time photographing some just-in-time-for-the-holidays horse+rider mini session at Zephyr's Way Stable in Powhatan. These kids warmed my heart because they were happy to be there just because it meant they got to hang out with their favorite pony. See more from the shoot here.  If you're interested in a similar block of mini-sessions at your barn, I've just added an option to my pricing page!

Double Maternity+Family Portrait Session

If one maternity session is good, two is better! These two families are so sweet and they are looking forward to introducing new cousins this fall. We shot these at a neat little venue near Petersburg called Scents of Cedar Bed and Breakfast-check it if you need an event spot! Check out more from the session here.
