When you have an outdoor wedding, you never know what is going to happen with the weather, and starting right before Lizzie and Warren's ceremony, the skies really opened and we had a night of heavy rain and not quite the sunset we were hoping to shoot in. Nonetheless, these two took it in stride, moved the whole thing under their reception tent, and partied on with friends! Thank you so much for letting me take part in your day--I wish you both many blessings and happy years in this adventure into married life! See the rest of their sample gallery here.
Hair by A Beautiful Darling
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.
I can't say enough how easy this girl made my job--she was a natural in front of the camera and I really enjoyed getting to meet her and work with her to create her senior casuals. The outfits she picked were spot-on for the light and colors of the site we picked. You can see more from her session here.
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.
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.
It's not every day that you get to photograph twins as cute as these two! This family is the sweetest and this farm was the perfect setting for their portraits. We caught the sunflowers at just the right time! See more from the shoot on Facebook.
This experience was certainly a memorable one! Thank you, Megan and Rocky, for entrusting me with your special day. It was a joy to watch you two share your vows and celebrate with family. This wedding took place at the lovely Brandermill Country Club in Midlothian. Floral designs by Flowers Make Scents. Hair and makeup by Fringe: Nicole Brooks, Nikki's Mane Art of Attraction, and Christine Goulet. Cake by Knead Cake Bakery and favors by Sweet Pea Bakery 1209.
I photographed this family when they were three last fall, so it was really wonderful to get the opportunity to photograph them as a group of four this time on a bright winter day :) See more sneaks of their Midlothian family portrait session.
Where to start with this one? These two warmed my heart, and they came with a vision for certain images they'd like to use with their wedding planning--I love bringing those ideas to life! See more images from their winter MIdlothian engagement photoshoot.
I enjoyed working with this lovely, kind family for our evening horse and family photo session out at Zephyrs Way Stable in Powhatan.
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.
I've been busy doing more family sessions lately, especially now that fall is approaching! We've found some great spots in a few locations--Midlothian Mines and Totopotomoy have both had wonderful background scenery, among other places.
It's hard to get a bad photo when you're shooting kids with their ponies. These guys were all a lot of fun. Spot the outfit that the kid picked out for herself and her pony :)
