Technically, not really. She experienced the snow last year, but she was too little to enjoy it. This time around was so much more fun. Willow has become quite the little talker lately, so she actually stepped out into the snow saying "wow" "whoa" "wow." In other words, she was suitably impressed. A+ mother nature.
We don't need another blog post where I gush on Tuckahoe Plantation more, but I dunno... maybe I should gush on Tuckahoe Plantation some more? It's just one of my absolute favorite places to photograph. No matter the season, it's always so beautiful. There's always something in bloom. And always a location I haven't tried before. It's familiar but I'm still inspired to be creative every time I go.
Fall! It's the busiest time of year for a photographer. I've been squeezing in as many colorful leaf-filled sessions as I can lately, and it's been so fun, crazy, and pretty! Today's senior portrait session was photographed at the lovely Maymont Park in Richmond. We lucked out because it was supposed to rain ALL weekend, but this session was just a little cloudy and didn't start sprinkling until we were finished and walking to our cars. Score. Let this session be yet another testament to the fact that cloudy days are just lovely in photographs! If you have a session scheduled and the weather is iffy, I usually recommend we go for it because I enjoy the not quite sunny, not quite rainy in between weather.
I was photographing a senior session last week and my clients noticed a family nearby who were struggling through their own portrait session. They watched the kids, who were wailing and screaming, and said "oh goodness, it must take a lot of patience to photograph babies and kids!" Sometimes, yes. But in TODAY'S session, not at all! I mean, it's obvious from the pictures, but this little boy was a complete and total champ for his one year old pictures! I've seriously never worked with a sweeter little thing than him.
I wanted to share this summer engagement session I photographed for my best friend, Kristen's little sister and her fiance! Gosh, I don't even know where to start on this one. My first memories of Nicole, I don't think she was even school age yet. I would arrive at her house every morning to meet her sister and walk to the bus stop together every morning. I remember Nicole bursting with energy when I entered and me being a zombie because mornings have never been my jam.
Yikes! I have a bit of a back log of photo shoots that I haven't shared in the past month. Whoops! Time flies like you would not believe when you have your first child. I remember the days when I updated my blog 3x a week. Now, I'm pretty satisfied if I get a weekly post in! And you know me, if it comes down to a portrait session or the latest happenings of Willow, I'll probably blog about Willow haha.
