Lynchburg Family and Maternity Photographer || The Griffin Family

Photographing friends & their families are so special to me! I've been taking photos of the Griffin Family for a few years now- ever since she was pregnant with Hamilton, and it's always such an honor to document milestones each year and seeing how much their little one is changing! Jenn is pregnant with baby #2 now and due in March (yay March babies!) and is seriously just stunning! 

We met out at the Ivy Creek Park in Lynchburg, Virginia this week! It was the perfect location, with the sun setting, the gorgeous trees & lake! I need to remember this one more! They dressed all up for me and looked AMAZING & Jenn had a flower crown made by Foraged & Cut for some individual photos and I am obsessed! 

Thanks Griffin Family for always trusting me to document your family! I know it's cliche' but it really is such an honor when there are so many people you can choose from! Love you guys!! 

Lynchburg, VA Engagement Session || James & Tresa

I can't even begin to tell you my excitement when I turned into the entrance of Sweet Briar College and saw how much color was still around! All week, I've been shooting with very limited options- you know- the trees with the half-dead dark orange leaves barely hanging on. Somehow, it's like this little area has been protected from all of the wind and rain we've had lately and all of the gorgeous color was there! 

James & Tresa drove down from Northern Virginia to Charlottesville for their engagement session, and then met me at Sweet Briar, which is only about 30 miles from the Lynchburg area. I love this spot because there are a ton of options and so much variety- between the boat house, open fields, brick buildings, and the barns- there's something for almost everyone! 

We had a great time getting to know each other- their adorable pup, Foster came along and you know I LOVE it when fur babies get included! We chatted all about their upcoming wedding at the Knights Gambit Vineyard in Charlottesville, Virginia- it's going to be BEAUTIFUL and so much fun! 

Thanks James & Tresa for making the trip down to Lynchburg! I LOVED LOVED LOVED getting to know you both and can't wait for your big day!!!

Lynchburg, VA Family Photographer || Gavin Family

I'm so excited to be sharing this family session with you today! The  Gavin family had me laughing our entire session- those boys have some big, fun personalities that is just so fun to see! I was SO happy to see the sun shining, the wind died down, and it wasn't too cold out for their Saturday morning session! They wanted a natural environment with some pretty trees, fields so I had the perfect spot in mind in Lynchburg, Virginia! 

Sometimes with family sessions, it can be difficult to get little ones to open up and smile, but oh my goodness we did not have that problem with these two cuties! They were wiiiiiiide open and we all laughed together at their goofiness! We got lots of photo options for them- ranging from the entire family, just Mom and Dad (something that's always needed!!), individuals of the boys, the brothers together! Oh it was a blast! I loved getting to know this family & know you're going to love these photos too!!

Weekend Update || Lynchburg, VA Wedding and Family Photographer

Oh my goodness! We had SUCH a FUN weekend!! It was full of photo sessions- ranging from family, commercial to an engagement session! And on Sunday, we had a fun family day, with church, lunch, and a super-girly birthday party for Emerson. And knowing that this is a short week & I'm working suuuuuper limited hours, I'm so excited to finish up my projects today and take some time off & decorate for Christmas!! YAY! 

Saturday morning's family session was so much fun! Oh my goodness their two boys had me laughing! So full of energy- and we pulled out some potty jokes and got those great, natural smiles that we all love! Look how cute they are! 

Saturday evening, well, more like afternoon now that the sun sets so early, I met James & Tresa at Sweet Briar College, which is about 30 minutes away from Lynchburg. It's always beautiful there, but I was super surprised when I pulled up and almost all the trees still had their vibrant, fall colors! So beautiful & these two are so cute together! Plus, they brought along their puppy, which you KNOW I loved!! 


For Emerson's birthday party, I just grabbed a few cell phone photos- but they girls did mud masks, painted their nails, and did their own makeup and loved every single second of it! They all were talking about how much fun it was, which definitely helped reign my Mom-guilt in for the lack of planning I did during busy season! 

This time of year is so so busy, and it makes me enjoy the downtime so much! I am so thankful for all of my clients that make this so much fun!! Happy Thanksgiving week!! 

Wintergreen Resort Engagement Session || Chase & Courtney

Wintergreen Resort is such a gorgeous spot! I know many people think of this being an area to visit in the winter for skiing or tubing- but goodness this is such a pretty spot in the summer & fall as well! You can't even compete with their overlook- you feel like you can see the entire world from this one spot! 

I was so excited when Chase & Courtney decided they wanted to do their engagement session at Wintergreen! It was perfect with the timing of the leaves changing colors and the stunning fall light! We had so much fun & I loved getting to know these two! They're getting married in 2018 at the Melrose Caverns Lodge in Harrisonburg & I know we're going to have a blast!!
