I know Valentine’s Day just passed by us somehow, but I wasn’t ready to blog these until now! I don’t often offer limited edition sessions, but I LOVED doing these, and I’m already thinking about what I might try to offer next fall!! It was so much fun to style these sessions, and my amazing previous clients all sold out the entire first weekend’s worth of sessions! I’m truly blessed to be able to do this, honestly. I mean seriously, just look at all these precious families! Thank you so much to everyone who made it such a success!
This is another sweet family from the fall. We decided on downtown Richmond for our location, and it was my first time to shoot there, and boy was it busy! I had nooooo idea how many people did their photoshoots there! It is a beautiful area though, so it makes sense, but unfortunately, we had to do more waiting to use certain spots than I would have liked, BUT we made it work! Thanks again Poole family, for being such troopers that day! How adorable are their sweet kids?
This was one of my sessions from fall 2018! I shared a bunch of these to my Facebook page and have finally gotten around the blogging them! Hope you guys enjoy them. I love this sweet family so much!
Words can’t describe what this sweet family means to me!! Over the years, we have grown so close and I am so lucky to have their mom as one of my best friends - and the same for our husbands! It’s one of the biggest blessings when you can become such good friends with people who are in the same season of life as you, whom you can both commiserate with AND share your joys with! So when she asked me to be their photographer, I was of course delighted. I thought it would also help that her youngest ADORES me, but sadly, he wasn’t having any of my charms this day (as evidenced by the last photo! I’m a sucker for the outtakes of crying babies). Sadly it was one of my colder sessions from this season, but we made it work.
It’s me again! And yes, it’s me again, just now posting a session that is 4 months old. I wish I was able to stay more on top of things!!! So thank you for bearing with me. I’ve had my hands full this summer with a 3 and 1 year old, but man…I really thought I’d manage to get on top of it, but nope! After this I’ve got at least two newborn sessions to blog…maybe putting it out there will give me motivation to get it done…lol, I hope, at least.
Anyway, onto this sweet family, who were referred to me by a friend. They are AMAZING. I feel like I say this all the time because I seem to be blessed with fantastic clients but it truly makes a world of difference when you find a photographer that you mesh well with - it always shows in the photos. They are previously from California and they move often so we aimed for a kind of wide-open-spaces vibe with the setting, to commemorate their time here in Texas country! I also really like a mom who knows exactly she what she wants. Together, we collaborated on wardrobe ideas and colors to put together a beautiful spring session for them! Each of her kiddos were SO much fun to be with, and we had a great time. I’m soooo excited to see them again soon for my Limited Edition Christmas Sessions! Also, if you' love this location, please let me know when booking - this is a private location in Richmond that I have exclusive access to! ;)
Also, for those that don’t know, I DO offer print services! I’ll mention this here since they made a print order, and I get asked often what the differences are versus doing it yourself, and Kristina gave me a good example for how to best explain it. So like i said, I like a mom who knows what she likes (or DOESN’T like), and so Kristina knew she wanted to order standout prints (which offer the depth of canvas without the canvas material), and specified why she preferred them over canvas - she didn’t like the texture of the canvas, for one, nor the way the colors rendered on them. As the photographer, I was then able to optimize both the digital file and paper choice for her prints to offer her the best quality possible. With her feedback, I knew I needed to deepen the blacks and up the contrast a little bit, and when she mentioned the texture, I knew exactly which paper I would order the prints on (deep matte, for those wondering - it’s the smoothest paper). Can you order standout prints on your own from a consumer lab online? Yep. Will it look good? Of course! As long as you use a recommended lab, at least. The benefit to me doing it is that I take care of it for you, check it over myself to make sure there’s no problems, deliver it to you, and optimize the image for the type of printing we’re doing so that you get that absolute best print possible on your end, with no work on your part! After our session, just let me know what you’re interested in and I’m always happy to send a quote.
