Forest Hill Park Maternity Session

A gorgeous couple that we have worked with before?….Check!

Dreamy evening light?…. Double Check!

A family growing from two people to three?…Check, check, check!

This maternity shoot had everything we needed for capturing the next step in a family’s life. We were honored to reconnect with Jackie and Mike–the stunning couple who stole the show back in 2014  with their wedding at Montfair Resort Farms. We noticed that a few things had changed. Mike had a fuller beard and Jackie was full of expectation for “Baby Brock”, the nickname for their little one due in May. Clearly, wedded bliss is still at play three years after their wedding.

For our shoot, Jackie pampered herself with professional make-up and nails, and we spent an hour playing in Forest Hill Park. Mike nicknamed his bride,  “Magical Jackie”, and I think you can see why…..

 



Tell me this photo doesn’t make you smile? Finding creative ways to bring out the sense of fun with a couple is one of our favourite aspects of a photo session.

Styled Portrait Experience: Maggie & Don’s Anniversary Session

 All love deserves it’s moment in the spotlight, and Maggie & Don are no exception. With their second wedding anniversary falling in September, they were the perfect match to be our first couple for our new Styled Portrait Experience!

Here’s how the Styled Portrait Experience works: To begin, we rented a fabulous location and rounded up the best hair & make-up artists in town. We brought in a professional wardrobe stylist to ensure Maggie & Don were dressed to perfection. With all the fixings of a top model photo shoot in place, and their favorite music playing on set, it made for an incredible afternoon in front of the camera.

Sunday Park Portrait: Sierra

sierra003The weather has been teasing us a bit here in Virginia, so we’re taking advantage of the pretty days in between the rainy and chilly ones. The day of this shoot was one of those previews of summer. We took Sierra to Sunday Park, a favorite venue for capturing portraits. She’s a natural beauty, so the early evening light (known to photographers as “magic hour”) only  enhanced her good looks! sierra004sierra002Sierra transitioned from a casual trendy look into a dressier, more formal outfit. This is something we recommend for our Seniors. It’s great to have a little of everything! sierra001sierra007sierra006

As the sun was dipping below the horizon, we sat down on the docks to relax and enjoy the view. I couldn’t resist grabbing this last moment! Kicking off your shoes and dipping toes in the water is one of the true joys of summer, and something we hope you’ll be able to do plenty of in the coming months!
