I admit it, I’ve been a little neglectful of my blog lately. To be honest I’ve been hibernating and taking a little time off trying to fill my creative cup and spending time with my family. I have found that it makes me a much better photographer to take time to revive, relax and just get inspired creatively. So I apologize for my silence on here. And, now it’s back to work!
This shoot was actually done at the end of the year in 2013 –it was my last shoot of the year! We shot in a lovely location in Richmond right on the James River! This family was truly wonderful to work with–so excited and charismatic–not to mention adorable! I am sure you’ll agree!
Thanks to this wonderful family! I had so much fun with you and truly enjoyed your lovely energy and excitement! xoxo andrea
These brothers are so much fun! I have been working with them about three times a year for the past couple of years, so I’ve gotten to know them pretty well! I always look forward to going to see them and see how much they’ve grown and changed. They definitely keep me smiling and laughing. I work with so many boys–and I truly love it! They are fast and fun and so bouncy–it always makes for fun shots!
This shoot was to capture their baby brother’s six month mark. We got so many great shots of their love for each other and their fun little personalities. Enjoy! xo andrea
I immediately got excited when I pulled up for this shoot. We were surrounded by a beautiful golden field–the perfect backdrop in my opinion. Couple that with a super chill, fun family, and I knew we’d get some really beautiful shots! I truly love the freshness of these. And, the light…it was absolutely perfect!! Yet another fun and successful shoot–I truly love what I get to do every day! I am blessed. Enjoy! xo andrea
This little fella was such a little sweet peanut! His mom and dad and sweet puppy, Clive were super fun to work with too. It was a pretty cloudy fall day when we shot these–but thankfully the rain stayed away long enough for us to capture some special memories. I adore all of the beautiful leaves on the ground! And check out his adorable hat and that big smile–what a doll! I get such a cozy fall feeling when I look at these. Enjoy! xoxo andrea
Met these guys in a fun little apple orchard. Such a great spot for the fall! I couldn’t have asked for cuter or more adorable subjects! We ran around and played a lot and dodged the occational stinky, rotten apple on the ground. Enjoy these cutie pies! xo andrea
I traveled to Staunton to work with this super cool family. I don’t travel over the mountain that much for shoot–it’s always such a beautiful, scenic drive. We shot at a very pretty location with lots of very cool pine trees, and I couldn’t have asked for better light that day! This was the first time I’ve worked this family. These boys were the sweetest, most well mannered boys I have met in a very long time–not to mention they we super handsome! We had fun wandering around the park finding great spots to shoot in. We talked about legos, triathlons and occasionally a bodily function conversation would come up–just part of the job Enjoy their sweet faces and lovely smiles! xo andrea
Met this wonderful family out at Henley’s Orchard. Such fun day! We played in the tall grass for a long time, and I fell inlove with the colors of the sky and beautiful green grass. These photos feel so fresh and crisp to me.
I’ve had the honor and pleasure of working with this wonderful family for several years now. They are always so happy and laid back–my kind of people! It’s been so fun watching this little guy grow up into a handsome fella. Every year we shoot around Halloween time, and I always look forward to hearing what he’s decided to be for Halloween! Enjoy this shoot and this gorgeous family! xo andrea
Yep, for most of this shoot, we just played in the backyard in the leaves and surrounded with the gorgeous autumn sunshine. It was fun and the light was magical!
I loved working with this sweet, adorable family–it was our first time hanging out–but we clicked right away. I always love it at the end of a shoot when the people tell me how much fun it was. They are usually so surprised they had fun. I guess people think it’s going to be stressful and miserable. It makes me so happy to know I’ve helped them not only to freeze some moments in time at this stage in their life, but also to have a good time together. I guess sometimes family photos become just one more thing to check off on the to do list. This world makes it almost impossible to slow down and spend quality time together, and quite often that is what my shoots end up being–quality time to snuggle, laugh and play–I’m just there to capture it.
Thanks to this family for being fun and real! xo andrea
Sarah and I have known each other for a few years. I was so happy when she wanted me to capture her senior portraits! We met at a local farm and had a lot of fun. Sarah attends Albemarle High School and is very active in the band program. Sarah has a cute smile and a huge heart!
Thank you Sarah for a great session full of laughter! I was glad you got to hear the donkey talk to us that day! Great memories. Good luck in all that you do, can’t wait to see where you go next!
This is another family I anxiously look forward to working with each year. I have watched this little cutie go from a tiny toddler to a very adorable kindergartener! We decided to have a little fun with some graffiti this year! I just love this fun location! We played, we scootered, we had fun! Thanks to this family for allowing me to capture your memories year after year…after year! You are beautiful! xoxo andrea
