My Babies

I don't ever post pictures of my own children on this blog, but these are so special and really touch my heart so much that I wanted to share.  For Mother's Day this year I really wanted to take some new pictures of my kids.  I'm always taking pictures of them at home, or during special outings, but I hardly ever set up a photo shoot with them.  So while Craig was making dinner for Mothers Day, I took the kids out to Chiles Orchard here in Crozet.  I love that place so much.  The mixture of this beautiful place, the perfect lighting, and my precious babies, made for the perfect present!   photo IMG_9500-copy.jpg  photo IMG_9457-copy.jpg  photo IMG_9522-copy.jpg  photo IMG_9533-copy.jpg  photo IMG_9439.jpg  photo IMG_9517.jpg  photo IMG_9466.jpg

Moss Family

Here is the cute Moss family that I was able to take pictures of last week. It was a really fun and easy shoot with a happy baby and parents, and a beautiful day and location. Their baby boy was just all smiles whenever his daddy would throw him in the air, flip him around, carry him by his feet, etc. Apparently that's his thing. What a little cutie! Enjoy!

Baird Family

Although I drive by UVa's law school regularly, I hadnt stepped foot on its beautiful grounds for years, so I was really excited for this photo shoot last weekend for the Baird fam.  Scott has just finished law school here, so it was the perfect place for their final photo shoot before they head on to their next stop.  I love that they wanted a full photo shoot to commemorate their time at the school, and I also love that they did an outfit change halfway through so they could have some casual shots, and also more formal ones.  I totally wish we would have done the same thing when my husband finished law school.  Great idea!  Good luck as you move forward, Bairds!  You have bright futures ahead of you!

Cordell & Meagan

I was so happy that I was able to capture these engagement shots of my brother, Cordell, and his fiancee, Meagan, while they were visiting from Utah. Virginia is my family's home-base, so Cordell was pretty excited to have its beautiful scenery in the background. They make such a sweet and beautiful couple, and I am so happy that they have chosen one another. August 14th will be one special day!

Baby Celia

I have been completely MIA lately, and for that I apologize.  Last fall was a very busy with photography and life, and I just needed to take a break from updating the photo blog.  I did many lovely fall shoots, but will keep those on my computer and in my heart and move on ;).  I now have some renewed energy for photography, and feel happy to be back!  Here is a newborn shoot that I did a while ago.  As I've said before, I LOVE newborn photography.  Those sweet, chubby, cuddly babies are always and joy and a privilege to photograph. Baby Celia was a complete dream, and he parents seemed to already be pros at being parents of two!  Enjoy!
