Superhero and Dinosaur Cake Smash | Hampton Roads 1st Birthday Baby Photographer

Two of my favorite first birthday cake smash sessions on the blog today!  I had so much fun planning these smashes.  Sometimes I hear the moms of boys say that there isn't as much 'cute stuff' available for boys as there is for girls. But I disagree - and these two cake smashes prove it! First up, is Gabriel - his family moved out of the area a few months after signing up for our Milestones Plan, so we had to do a bit of a schedule change.  His first birthday cake smash session was just a little early, but he was totally ready to eat some cake!

Next up is this special little guy, Gavin.  You may remember him from his newborn session or other Milestones Plan sessions - he sports some pretty serious scars from his incredible journey of surgeries over his first year.  He is a warrior and such a sweet baby who has a very special place in my heart!  Tutu Cute Cakes of Chesapeake, Virginia created an amazing cake and set for his smash.  He is our Superhero, so we put together a skyline and super cake just for Gavin!

Meet Megan | Chesapeake Newborn Photographer

One of my favorite things about being a newborn photographer is not just snuggling with these precious babies, but also getting to capture their personalities.  Before I had children, I didn't know that each baby is born with their own little temperament and personality quirks.  Megan was such a smiley baby girl - no matter where she was, she was smiling and I captured it!  Enjoy this little look into a sweet smiley newborn baby girl!

Minisessions with Large Families | Virginia Beach Baby and Children Photographer

I often have people email me who say, "I have {insert number here} children and was wondering if it's possible to book a minisession with that many kids?"  Some photographers would balk at the idea of having more than two little ones to photograph in 20 minutes, but I love the challenge!

Now, you might recognize this family from a recent blog post - I captured the birth of their newest little one only a little over 2 months ago.  When she emailed to tell me all about their sweet melting pot family before our minisession, I knew it was a tall order.  The kids are ages 7, 6, 4 and the 2.5 mo baby.  She was a bit worried about their 4yo son who has special needs, but I was convinced we could make it work.  And work it we did!  They were so amazing - all of the kids were super smiley and opened up to me quickly.  And between running around and throwing sand, we captured some magical moments that I know they will treasure!!

Here is the gallery of images I presented them with - 20 minutes with 6 people, 4 of them under the age of seven!

Operation: Love Reunited | Norfolk Virginia Portrait Photographer

This is one of my all-time favorite sessions I have ever taken for OpLove.  The sunlight was dreamy, the red, white, and blue color scheme with the flags just made everything pop and this mom and son are just plain gorgeous!  Enjoy a peek at this "Already Gone" session. I hope their sailor will be receiving his album very soon and that it helps pass the time away from his lovely family.
