Mickey Mouse Girl || Children Photographer Virginia

This sweet girl has the cutest dimples when she smiles.  She lights up a room with her bubbly personality!  She loves to dance and she loves her Mickey!

Va Tech Maternity Photo Session || Blacksburg Photographer

They met at Virginia Tech.  They fell in love.  Graduated.  Married.  Now expecting!
She worked for me as a student when she attended VT.  But after they graduated, they moved away :( .
But we kept in touch over Facebook.  She asked me to take her Maternity Photos.  I was so excited!  We were going to meet halfway, but as we talked we realized that doing them on the VT Campus where they met was going to be so cool!  So they drove 4 hours for this photoshoot!  Awesome right?!
We did the first part of the photosession at the Hahn Horticulture Gardens at VT.  It’s a hidden Oasis!

Her nursery theme has frogs and lily pads, so the ponds around the gardens were a great addition to the photoshoot.

Look at her little bump!  So cute!
Then we walked across campus and the bottom fell out!!  We ran to find cover and found this old house and shot some pictures on the front porchmaternity_photos_virginia_tech-6maternity_photos_virginia_tech-7
Once the rain stopped, we went over to some familiar places to them.  I specifically wanted to find an archway.  The campus is full of them.  But when you want to find the right one, the right one seems to be FAR away!  So we found some neat places.  Like a stonewall, a volleyball court (where they played), an orange cone that has a funny story between them :), and a tunnel with an archway and an old payphone?!?!

A bus stop booth that they so often waited in for the “BT” Blacksburg Transit. :)

Virginia Tech Senior Portraits || Blacksburg Photographer

We did Leah’s session at the Hahn Horticulture Gardens at VT. Its like a little oasis.  Some people don’t even know its there.  It’s really beautiful with shade trees, exotic flowers, ponds, fish, lily pads, walking paths, and gazebos.

10 Days New–Baby Girl || Lifestyle Newborn Family Session

I think my favorite thing about my job is to have the opportunity to photograph a family with a new little baby.  I come to their house and take casual pictures of them in their comfortable home.  The new Mom and Dad can feel relaxed and just cuddle with their sweet baby.  newborn_sawyer-2

I love using natural light from the windows to create a soft, calm atmosphere.

and taking pictures on Mom and Dad’s bed!  White comforter and sheets create such a clean, fresh look.

Mom looks radiant after just giving birth 10 days ago!

This little man didn’t want to take pictures with his family.  Maybe the idea of a new baby/sister in the house, was a little too new for him.  Poor guy.  The only way we could get him to be involved was to wrestle with Dad.  I love how they wrestle right next to the new baby!  They done this before. :D

They had a picture of their Son’s feet with their rings on his toes, so I tried to duplicate it so they could have matching ones.

This next set of photos are with a portable backdrop, set up in front of sliding glass doors.  All natural light. 

Mommy and Baby Girl

I love the head in the hands shots.  I usually get Dad’s hands, but Dad was tending to the little man, so he would get some attention and some LUNCH!

This next set are also done with portable backdrop and natural light.

I LOVE her legwarmers!

I found a little strand of lace at JoAnn’s fabrics to put around her sweet head

And last but not least, my friend Kayla with Sew Sweet made this bunting and headband.
