Sunset Beach, North Carolina Family Portrait Session

Sunset Beach, North Carolina is one of our favorite places to unwind and vacation, but when I get to do photos out there, I will gladly take on a session or two while on vacation! I LOVE the beach and photos by the beach just have even more special memories attached to them! Knowing that every time anyone in the family sees these photos they will remember the laughs, the fun on the beach, the struggle to pack up what seems like the entire world to get those kids on the beach, the late night chats, and the time spent with their family, just adds a whole different approach to the photos! 

When Caitlin first emailed me, it seemed like fate that we were both going to be on vacation there at the same time! I was so excited! After an afternoon of thunderstorms, it was a beyond gorgeous evening- the heat was gone, and the sky was just gorgeous! I had such a blast with this amazing family!

A snow day! || Lynchburg, VA Photographer

Oh my goodness! It finally happened! Lynchburg got our snow day- enough to sled in, play in, make snow shakes, and get a couple of days off of school. Now, I am the first to say I am so ready for routine to be back in our lives (after 2 weeks off for Christmas Break, cancelled school for cold weather & ice, MLK Jr Day, and then the snow days, it feels like we're never getting back on a schedule!) but true snow days, with more than 2 inches of snow, are super rare for Central Virginia- making them A LOT of fun! 

Emerson and her neighborhood friends had a BLAST and stayed outside pretty much all day. I made her come in for lunch and a little bit of rest time and you would have thought the world was ending in our house! ;) It does make it super nice that she can get all the layers on by herself! 

We thoroughly enjoyed a lazy snow day- the fire stayed on almost all day, drank hot chocolate, and were super successful in making the house a disaster zone! But, totally worth it! I know these are the days that we'll talk about and remember for years and years to come!

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!!

Lynchburg Family Photographer || The Offield Family

I cannot believe we're a week into November and just now hitting the peak of the fall colors! I'm not complaining though- it's so gorgeous- I just wish we could keep it around just a little bit longer! ;) 

I am so excited to share some photos from the Offield Family's Photo Session! I loved photographing them previously and that they made getting updated family photos done while they were in town! Krista ran the Mountain Masochist 50 miler the day before AND she freaking got first place. So, how she was standing the next day is beyond me, but she was there and looked amazing and wearing heels! Can we say super woman here? 

These kids have grown up SO much since I last photographed them, and oh my goodness did they have me laughing!! You know with all those boys there were some potty jokes mixed in!

Lynchburg Family Photographer || Smawley Family

Oh I'm so excited to share the Smawley's family photos! Kristin was our mortgage broker, and a HUGE  help to us when we bought our new house recently.  I was super excited when she contacted me needing some updated family portraits! Their family is so busy with football & work & life, so it's such an honor they took time off to spend with me for their photos! 

We met up at Sweet Briar College- which is such an amazing gem in the Lynchburg area! I love the history and character that all of the buildings offer! The Smawley Family wanted a rustic, barn feel, and I knew the Sweet Briar Dairy Barns would be the perfect fit! They're a gorgeous, worn white barn surrounded by open fields and wooden fencing!
