When a new baby is born {Fredericksburg VA newborn photographer}

When a new baby is born, often a big brother or sister is born, as well. As a momma of many, this is just one of my most favorite beginning relationships to capture. It is such a joy to watch big sister (or brother) fall in love with their new little darling.

Aside from the fact that this little face belongs to my dear friend, I loved everything about this session. I mean that round little face and those cute little rolls? Per-fect-ion!

My husband thought… {Fredericksburg VA newborn photographer}

My husband thought I was crazy when I told him that I was going to let a portion of our yard grow crazy. I still don’t think he is on board with this grand scheme but at least now he knows the vision :)

It has been five months since I welcomed my sweet bundle of joy… insert shameless picture of my little red head in 3…2…1…

While it has been so wonderful to work a slightly less full schedule while settling into life with six, I am back to my regularly scheduled program as of tomorrow, October 1.

Just a refresher as to what that means and a couple of new items of housekeeping, as well… :)

~All appointments will require three visits: the consultation, the session and the portrait selection appointment. As a portrait artist, it is my wish to deliver amazing custom art to every client.  I have found that the best way to do this is to establish a great relationship early on (the consultation), discuss your wishes for your session, capture your images with those criteria in mind and work closely together to ensure that you are thrilled with your investment. While digital files have been a part of my sessions these last months, unless otherwise specified, they will only be included with select collections once again. You will be able to view these collections, and their pricing, at your consultation.  In situations where my clients are traveling to me, a phone consultation is available but all orders must be placed in person.

~My pricing will return to normal October 1. All sessions begin at $295. Collections begin at $195. Make up services begin at $75.

~My referral program will continue but it is worth mentioning again since many are not aware of it! For every client you send my way, you will receive a digital image of your choice ($125 value). I SO appreciate referrals!

~I just want to take a second to thank my clients. I have come to love you all like my family and not a day goes by that I do not just shake my head at the immense gift it is to do what I love every single day. THANK YOU!!

I have been so fortunate to photograph this beautiful momma’s family as they have grown and it meant so much to me to be able to photograph her gorgeous pregnant belly before their third little darling arrives. I can’t wait to meet him!

T {Expecting} (Fredericksburg, VA maternity photographer)

I was a little nervous before T’s session… I always get excited creative butterflies but T also happens to be the bff of one of my photographer friends, which ups the nervous ante for some reason. But as soon as she sat in the make up chair, I was just excited because my stars… she is beautiful and after getting to know her a little in our afternoon together, I can promise you she is as nice as she is stunning. What a completely gorgeous mommy to be and what a lucky and loved baby, as well!

Some people make new year’s resolutions, but mommas of six who run a business make back to school year’s resolutions! Mine is to not be the prodigal son {daughter} of blogging. I am holding onto so many ADORABLE babies that have not been shared that I didn’t even know where to start. So I started with *this* little cutie who completely stole my heart! {Not to mention that his mommy and daddy are about the nicest people ever… he’s one loved and lucky chap!}

 

Guess where Daddy played football? That’s right… notre dame. My kids were super excited because they thought I went to notre dame, too.  Sadly, it was an all women’s catholic college who shares the name… Baby E’s notre dame is far more impressive :)
