The Geipel Family

May 26, 2022

I’m changing it up on you this morning and sharing one of my FAVORITE 3 Humans. Every time they are in front of my camera they not only give me all of the magic but they fill my heart so much it could possibly explode (so it feels). Mommy and me sessions are most def […]

This Spring Newborn Session is so dear to me. Jennifer and Nathan welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world and she is every bit, absolute perfection. So everyone, please meet Heidi. She is the first girl grand baby, the first little girl, and little sister of Ethan. Baby Heidi did SO good during her […]

Kallen is ONE

August 24, 2020

The Ayers family has the CUTEST boys ever and it just so happened to be a birthday celebration of the tinniest of Ayers, Kallen! These sweet boys stole my heart the moment I met them and their photos are pulling my heart strings again today! Kallen and Mommy have made it to ONE YEAR of […]

The Dawson Family

July 7, 2020

I’ve taken on more large family sessions this year than I have since starting my business in 2010, and I’m not mad about it. I’m an only child and so I’ve always longed for family and relationships so strong they could be blood. My husband is one of seven and I’ve grown up with them […]

Mommy & Me

June 24, 2020

Can I let you in on a secret? My heart longs for more Mommy & Me sessions. They seriously have become one of my absolute favorite portrait sessions. If you are a Momma reading this and you haven’t had a Mommy & Me session, no matter how old your babe is, JUST DO IT! You […]

Oliver | Newborn Session I finally got to meet Oliver … from six feet away of course! It’s no doubt that this pandemic has us all turned on our heads and there are so many things, small things, that we’ve taken for granted and haven’t put too much thought or thankfulness into until now. For […]

Lily is Two

May 1, 2020

I love photographing littles, but sometimes they just make me realize how quickly time goes by! I don’t know how we got here and I’m sure her family is thinking the same thing! It seems like it was just yesterday that we had Lily in pearls climbing all over my cute pink velvet chair and […]

It is the YEAR of babies. We are only in March of 2019 and I’ve photographed more Newborns and Maternity sessions than I did in ALL of 2018. Give me ALL the babies! This year seems to be another year of the Boys but I am hopeful the Girls will catch up. I’m so excited […]

I’m so excited that spring seems to finally be showing itself around here in Virginia. This weekend was spent celebrating families and it couldn’t have been a better weekend. I met with Justin and Juwon at Maymont park in Richmond Virginia on Saturday for their Maternity portraits. They are expecting their first child, a baby […]

It’s no secret that our new family member Tippon is the baby of the family now. Although as I’ve said before Weston my youngest child will beg to differ. Our whole family has just fallen in love with Tippon and we couldn’t have asked for a better pet. Tippon just turned 6 months but he’s […]
