Channing & Jordan

Channing contacted me a while back to book a session for her and Jordan, she already knew then she wanted to do something a little different. 

I brainstormed & drove around all kinds of places in the London area looking for something that wouldn't be the same 'ole same, but I was just coming up short. Then, Channing suggested a tree farm & since there isn't one locally (that I know of) we ended up heading north to Baldwin Farms in Richmond. I had been there before, back in early college, but I was having trouble remembering a lot about it. 

The photographer inside of me got way when we pulled up and I realized there were endless opportunities for photos AND the sun was going to set in the most perfect place possible.


I'll be honest & say, sometimes I hate nearly every photo I take at a session & other times it's like the stars just line up, the sun is perfect, the place is perfect, the people are perfect, & I just can't get enough of the photos. This session was definitely one of the latter. 

Special thanks to Jordan (& Channing on occasion as you'll see below) for pulling that wagon around the entire farm just so we could haul my stuff & use it for photos. Ya'll are the best! 

Here's to love & 2016!

Calley + Ty // Awaiting Winter

This Alice in Wonderland themed baby shower was phenomenal, so well thought out & creative. Guests arrived, signed a vintage Alice in Wonderland book for baby Winter, & picked up a key. At the end of the shower, each person checked to see if their key opened a chest with a gift inside (loved this idea). The table centerpieces were incredibly detailed, featuring tiny little vintage books & china sets. On the back wall under a sign that read "Winter's Wonderland" hung a vintage blue dress, which happened to be Calley's Grandmother's wedding dress. The Donna Vandy cake was beautiful AND delicious. 

It was pretty much perfect!

I had so much fun photographing all of the details & loved finishing off the shower with a mini maternity session for the parents-to-be. 

Winter is due to arrive in a little over a month & I'm certain she will be greeted with love that is truly magical.

Congratulations, Calley & Ty! 

Linsey + Matt // Awaiting Avary

Pretty fond of this couple & already in love with little Avary Kate.

She's due to arrive in 4 weeks-- yay! 

So, that means be on the lookout for her on the blog soon :).
