Our Family Maternity Photos! || Central Virginia Photographer

I’ve been posting sneak peeks from our maternity session with Michela Brooke Photography the last couple of weeks, so I’m so excited to be sharing more from our session! I LOVE shooting In-Home sessions, and really wanted that for our maternity photos. There’s something so bittersweet about recognizing these moments in the house that are going to be the last moments of our family as a family of three.  

I always think ME being in front of the camera is such a learning experience of its own because I get to remember first hand the stress that my clients feel before our sessions. I’ll admit I totally started panicking about my house not being 100% complete or clean- since we moved to the Forest area last summer, I haven’t gotten everything how I want it, all the furniture bought, and photos hung on the walls. Wouldn’t it be nice if real life was like an HGTV show that magically completed itself in one episode? ;) In reality, my house was perfectly fine put together, I didn’t need to stress out about it!

I am so in love with these photos- so so in love with them. Michlea did an amazing job of making us feel comfortable and confident- which is SO important when you’re feeling hugely pregnant and have a 6 year old that looooves to be silly and get the attention. She even paused and let Emerson and Michael have a dance party in the living room.  I am so thankful we did these photos and have these memories to always look back on!

 

Thanks SO much to Ashley Ancheta with Makeup by Ashley for doing my makeup and for Michela Brooke Photography for these images!!

Christmas Fun! Lynchburg Wedding & Portrait Photographer

Well, I didn't get our family Christmas Cards done this year- the first time in the 10 years that we've been married! But sometimes, life, busy seasons, and pregnancy do that to you! We did have a lot of Christmas fun this year- visited Santa, went to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, made WAY too many cookies, saw classical concerts, and just truly enjoyed our family time together.  This is Emerson's first year in school, so it was so fun to have her back at home for a bit to hang out, make hot chocolate with extra whipped cream, and watch Christmas movies! 

I kept my camera packed away for the most part this season, but here are a few photos from my cell phone along our Christmas journey! 

 

 

 

All of the Santa photos are from the amazing Liz Cook Photography here in Lynchburg, Virginia! LOVED her Santa experience again this year! 

 

 

Emerson's 5th Birthday || Lynchburg and Charlottesville Photographer

Excuse me while I'm wiping away some tears and feeling super sentimental, as we celebrated Emerson's FIFTH birthday last month! It's been a few weeks now, and I'm still emotional thinking about how much she's grown up!  I had all intention to share this post on her actual birthday, but it's the tail end of busy season, so all personal things get pushed aside! ;) 

Em was so super excited for her birthday this year, and has been counting down the days for over a month.  She's all about cartwheels, so it only seemed natural that she chose to have a gymnastics birthday party! It was so much fun seeing her there with her friends and loving each moment of attention.  

 

And, I can't have a birthday post without sharing some of the sweetest photos from over the last five years! *Most of these are iPhone photos*

Summer Family Session || Lynchburg, VA Wedding and Family Photographer

This family!! They are seriously SO adorable! I loved that they were so light-hearted, laughing and having fun the entire session!  AND Oh my goodness, it seriously blows my mind that the last time I did photos for this sweet family was when she was pregnant with Noah! It was such an honor to do their family photo session, to meet their BEAUTIFUL kids and see them having fun and interacting with each other!

Oh my goodness! I can't believe that my youngest nephew, Heston is THIS BIG.  He is the sweetest little guy and seriously such a good baby!!  He did fantastic with the schedule changes, sleeping in a house with more than 20 people running around, and all the extra kisses from his Aunt Ashley! 

One night we walked around on the beach and got some photos of this cutie pie!! I was obsessed- he's SO cute!!
