I LOVE 6 month sessions! We typically wait until the baby is sitting unsupported, which could very well be 7.5 months like it was for my first son. The babies are smiling and generally very happy at this session, and it's one of my favorite ages to photograph! Reed was the perfect model and his mama wanted to capture some baby skin, and also some portraits showing how big he looked in regular clothes too, so we got a little bit of everything, and I was super happy with this session and smiley baby!
Okay, so I think I can now claim the title as "THE" Richmond VA Multiples Photographer ;) Oner the past two years I have photographed twins, triplets. and quadruplets! And I love every single session. They are certainly more challenging that a singleton session, but I love a good challenge. These sweet triplets recently turned ONE and we celebrated with a cake smash! It was hilarious watching mom and grandma wrangle three kids, but we finally got everyone settled and looking by singing their favorite song ;) I may not be able to carry a tune TOO well, but I don't mind being silly to get the shot!
This sweet family recently came to me for a newborn session and brought their pup and grandma who was visiting to help post baby! So it truly included the whole family and I loved it! :) In my studio I have everything needed for a session, but sometimes clients want to incorporate a few things that are special to them and that is great too! So we included baby girl's sweet rose blanket and one piece outfit. (Outfits can be really tough at this age so if you want to search for something special, go to etsy and type in newborn photography outfit for the best choices.. otherwise, baby may be swimming in it!)
Here are a few of my favorites from the session..
I have been shooting this family for years, and now, they've added their third baby, a sweet boy, to the mix! So far for this baby we have covered a maternity session, a newborn session, and a 6-month one. The only thing we have left in the baby plan is the 1 year that includes a cake smash (I provide the cake and decor!) I love the baby plans because babies change so much in that first year and it's a privilege to see them grow up! From curling up (we took River's newborn portraits in the best spot... down by the RIVER ;) at the newborn session to smiling at the 6 months, it's a great way to capture your whole family for a year. Here are a few of my favorite images from our sessions:
There is something about a parent/child connection that I adore photographing. I have been a photographer in the Richmond and surrounding area for almost 9 years, that's crazy to think about just how many families I have had the pleasure of photographing over all of this time. About 6 years ago when I got my first studio, I was able to put the white bed set out that I had dreamed about out as that studio had a perfect double window. The first "bed" I had there was a blow up mattress, but you couldn't tell (until you went to sit on it, ha!) I got to take pictures of my Grandmother there before she passed away. I got pictures with my babies there that i'll always treasure. I've captured so many mom-to-bes and babies in that setting, there's something so peaceful about all white so that you and your little loves are the focal point.
In my new studio (which I've been in for 3+ years!) the white bed set was the first thing I put up. And I am just as obsessed with it as I was 6 years ago!
Here is a peek at a recent "Mommy + Me" session. I have ONE more spot left for the mommy + me sessions that will take place on February 11th AND they include makeup for mama from Shine Blowdry Bar!
For the past few years Christy has come to me with an idea for her daughter's session and we pull ideas together to make it happen. This year was by far my favorite and I am not sure how we will top it next year! She brought in some things, and I pulled together things I had that would nicely add to it, and then set up the "dream" set. I thought it turned out SO great that I am offering a limited number of Dream Sessions here at the studio!
Oh this session was SO much fun!! I think it could comfortably fit two (or three small!) children. If you would like to book a dream session for your child, here is a little more information on it: (but act fast because this is only offered for January and I only have a few spots available!)
