Children, like living timelines, show us the ever-changing time. It has been pure joy documenting this family from before they were even a family. Now here they are with a home and a yard and a little boy who speaks sentences and asks curious questions and a sweet baby girl who is content to simply be in your company. What a wonderful nest they have created. This at-home session took place in Grottoes, Virginia.
It has been a joy photographing this family since their son was just a wee one, swaddled tightly in his blankie. All previous sessions have been before he could walk or talk and I’m certain this ball of energy is making up for lost time. On the evening of our shoot, he thought my camera was the most hilarious thing in all of life. Every click of the shutter brought on contagious giggles. I’ve watched him grow through my lens along with the love this family shares. And what a beautiful thing that is.
Any reason to see my friends, Brian and Reshella, is a good reason. But this time, the reason was a tiny human: chubby cheeks, chilly toes, bright eyes. Gah! They introduced me to their son Hudson as we hung out in his nursery (…really trying to hold back my “hanging at the crib” joke here). Evening light poured in through the windows and my children made googly eyes at Hudson from behind my lens. After our session we all went to Vito’s and ate our weight in pizza. On the way home I fantasized about a system where I would only do photo sessions in exchange for pizza. Or sometimes sushi…or Taste of Thai. Or pretty much just food in general. Make an offer.

I met with Miranda, Chance and their son Graham at their home in Downtown, Harrisonburg for an at-home family session. The morning was crisp and cool and when I arrived, morning light poured through the stairwell window. It was a pleasure to photograph this beautiful, growing family just months before Graham becomes a big brother. Below are some of my favorites from our session.
The Godshall Family invited me to their home for a summer evening family session. And by ‘family’ I mean their son, two daughters, two dogs, new kitten, and two very-well-loved horses. Surely the grass was greener on this particular evening as golden light poured through flickering leaves of the trees. Below are a few of my favorite shots of this super sweet family.
This at-home session was held at the Hughes new home in Rockingham County. Hilly country roads led me there on a humid Saturday morning and I was greeted warmly by a very vocal dog, chickens, rabbits, a blue-eyed cat and three sweet children. I’ve photographed Ashley and Bill many times before and I look forward to continuing this tradition. Their family just keeps getting better and better…and bigger!
