Richmond Family Christmas Portraits

This year we offered super simple solid colored backdrops for Christmas portraits. It was so much fine and the focus was just the kids I encourage the kids to laugh, and have fun and boy did they deliver. We also offered a Christmas drop that worked perfectly with our super special composite image. I imagine their huge print hanging over the fireplace every year. What’s more special than the Christmas decor of your own babies?

Let’s plan a family Christmas portrait session for your family! Contact me today for more information.

Sunflower Sisters | Family Photography in Richmond, VA

Virginia weather has really thrown us for a loop this year with tons and tons of rain. ENDLESS RAIN. So when this glorious sunflower patch bloomed in the middle of all this rain, I had very small hope that it would work out.  Sunflowers typically only last about a week if you are lucky.  So when Sophia and Olivia’s mom asked if we could do a sunflower session with a HORSE, I may have slightly (or more accurately HUGELY) panicked while waiting for weather reports. You see, when you have to plan a regular session you can reschedule if the weather changes, and do so fairly easily, but when you are orchestrating someone else bringing a huge gorgeous animal and you have literally a week of gorgeous flowers, its a little tricky.  The weather the day before our session was utterly dreadful. It rained and the wind blew and blew. I had visions of poor Victory sinking in gobs of mud, or tripping in the soft ground.  I worried what if she took off running and trampled the field, but none of this happened. Despite all the rain, the field remained quite dry and the ground was very hard. (My yard across town however was a horrible muddy mess). Victory was an absolute perfect ANGEL. She did what she was asked and stood and even looked at the camera. I couldn’t have asked for a more well behaved girl!  She even took a nibble of a few flowers, but I’m sure to her, they looked delicious. 😉   Victory is the horse that Sophie takes lessons with and she considers her, “her horse”. I’m so glad everything worked out so beautifully and all my worry was for nothing.

Sophie and Olivia looked so gorgeous surrounded by the sea of sunflowers. I’m sure these will be treasured for quite some time. Thank you Kim for trusting me with such a fun project!  I just love how Kim’s sunflower crown turned out too! What a crafty mama!  If you are interested in having a professional portrait session taken in the Richmond, VA area, contact me today for more information!

Jade | Dance Competition Update

I met miss Jade last year when I did her outdoor dance session in Old Towne Petersburg. We had the best time. She told me over and over that she was having so much fun and it really showed in her photos.  I knew her mom was planning to use some of the photos from her session in Jade’s Portfolio for dance competitions and she recently contacted me with an update.  I was so thrilled I wanted to share it with all of you.
“I wanted to give you an update of my daughter photo. She had Dance Nationals at Myrtle Beach and I had entered her in most photogenic with one of the photos you did for us. She scored the highest in her age division with a Platinum and won 1st overall in her age.
Attached is the photo that won and the other is her with her awards and trophy. “
Jade dances at Angel Desouza’s and the competition name was Star Systems at Myrtle beach. Her ago category was ages 7-9.

Jade we are so proud of you! Keep up the hard work!!!  If you are interested in having a professional portrait session, contact me today for all the details.

Family Session in the wildflowers at the lake,  minutes from Petersburg, Virginia.

 

Family sessions in the wildflowers are gorgeous and next to a lake make them even better.  I love that our family farm has so many private gorgeous spots that are available only to JTP clients.

Sabrena and Kevin have two gorgeous little blonde babies and they were seriously an absolute delight. I’ve never gotten smiles from a two year old boy easier than I did at their session.

We had the best time even though it ended up being a very warm spring day hitting the 90’s.  Our session ended with a gorgeous Virginia sunset over the water. Family Session in the wildflowers at the lake, minutes from Petersburg VAFamily Session in the wildflowers at the lake, minutes from Petersburg VAFamily Session in the wildflowers at the lake, minutes from Petersburg VA

I’m from the country and I like it that way. Where the fields abound and there is always the chance for some outdoor fun. In the south we like our tea sweet and ice cold and mamas love their babies in smocked dresses and rompers and monogramming is all the rage. This sibling duo came in as cute as a button and super sweet. I couldn’t get enough of them. They truly love each other and it shows. These classic child portraits make my heart swell. I hope you love them too!
