Little Captain Colton is ONE! What a fun time it has been, and what an honor it was to capture sweet Colton so many times in the past year. Jen & Jason made sure to get portraits of their little boy every season of his first year! I know from experience that time flies by so fast, especially that first precious year of life!
The Campbells had their engagement, trash the dress, and maternity photos done at Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia Beach, so it was only fitting that they chose this location to share with Mr. Colton! Even with a missed afternoon nap, Colton observed his surroundings with awe, held his little feet up in the air so they wouldn’t touch the grass, and talked to and waved to the birds. See how much this little dude has changed from his sleepy snoozes in his treasure box at his newborn session here: Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Colton | Newborn Session | VA Beach Newborn Photographer

The Corsos had a ball laughing, playing with Curious George, and climbing a live oak during their spring session! Sweet big brother Zeke picked out flowers for his baby sister Summer who just turned one, and Summer may have tasted one or two flowers as well! I absolutely adore capturing precious natural moments for loving families like this!

Jennifer & Jason are pretty crazy about their cute little guy! Colton on the other hand, might not have been that crazy about me, since he stuck his tongue out at me during most of our session!!! Haha… In all seriousness, I have loved getting to watch sweet Colton grow! What an honor it has been to be able to capture his newborn portraits, fall photos, and now spring photos!
This session was shot at West Neck Creek Natural Area in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Ginny was actually the one to contact me months back about doing a family session for her, her boyfriend Brian, and her daughter Haley. I was so happy when we were able to get together to do the session amongst the gorgeous, colorful, fall leaves. Much to my surprise, Brian slipped me a little note shortly after arriving that said, “I have a ring, and I plan to propose, so be prepared!” Before I knew what the note said, I responded with a loud, “Thank you!!” thinking he was handing me their session payment. Thankfully Ginny didn’t notice anything and was still completely clueless! Haha, phew!!
About half-way through our session, Brian got down on one knee, and proposed to Ginny!! She was totally surprised and cried tears of joy! The couple then spent a couple sweet moments hugging Haley and enjoying the moment together. We just had to do a quick reenactment with the fall leaves in the background as well! What a perfectly beautiful place for a proposal that was made so much more special with Ginny’s sweet daughter there! How awesome is this background with Haley’s beautiful hair too?!

Lauren and Michael are so excited to have their little guy Logan join their family! It was a tough pregnancy for Lauren as she spent many weeks on bed rest ensuring that her son would have a safe arrival into this world. Once he was finally ready, he ended up needing a little coaxing to come out, but Logan finally made his appearance at a whopping 9 pounds 7 ounces!! He joins big sister Emma who tried to be my assistant during our at-home session, placing makeup brushes and purses down for me to practice focusing on! Haha!

The Vecchio Family contacted me about doing a family session for them and to capture their fun little boy right after his first birthday! It was such a joy to hang out with this sweet family on the beach of First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach at sunset. There is nothing like a beach sunset!! Amelia & Mike’s little guy adventured through the park, conducted an antique train car, and sneaked numerous samples of Virginia Beach sand!! Haha!
The following is Amelia’s intro and description of their adorable little man…
“When I was pregnant we were so excited to meet our little boy. ‘What will he be like?’ We’d say. ‘Who will he be?’ Well, within a few days after he was born we figured out that he was a smiley, happy, interactive little guy, who nursed with enthusiasm and took to tummy time naturally. As time went on, we learned he had a silly side, a determined/stubborn side and an adventurous side, among others! Now that he’s a year, we have a walking, running, exploring, chattering, sweet little boy who laughs easily, and brings smiles to many people’s faces. We had such fun during this photo shoot! Many of these sides came out and several of our family shots had to be delayed while he explored his surroundings. Boy did he love the train and the sand!!”

Liz and Ling met each other in college (Ling attended Virginia Tech and Liz went to George Mason University) and they were married after they graduated. They now reside in Centreville, Virginia with their two children Leah (18 months) and Mitch (2.5 years) and their puggle Dilbert!
Mitch and Leah for the most part are loving siblings with the occasional hair-pulling and rivalry on who gets to sit in the front of the shopping cart when they go grocery shopping!! Haha! Their favorite activities together are playing with Legos (Leah usually demolishes anything that Mitch creates), hanging out with friends, teaming up to help each other steal snacks from the kitchen cabinets, and riding around the neighborhood in Mitch’s power tractor. They are an energetic pair and are not known to stay or sit in one place for long periods of time which keeps both parents constantly on their toes!!
I definitely understand this with my own very active (crazy) one, so I could totally sympathize with Liz and Ling’s busy, busy lives! I just loved following Leah and Mitch around as they explored Green Spring Gardens Park in Alexandria, Virginia! I also loved how this family brought props to bang out two holiday pictures in one full session (Fall/Halloween/Christmas)!!

Most can only imagine what life with three boys aged 3 and under is like on a daily basis, but the West family lives it every day! What fun, energetic, curious boys Ryan & Melissa have! Three-year-old twins Owen & Oliver, and two-year-old younger brother, Spencer. Despite the unusual September heat, the boys had fun exploring Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia.
To get the big smiles, we did have to do some silly talk specifically geared toward little boys, but all three boys definitely showed their great sense of humor!! Check out the behind-the-scenes action of dad passing out some treats in-between shots as some nice Skittles reinforcement! 🙂
