Cleveland Family Session | Richmond, VA | Belle Isle

This family session was a true delight. I can't get over these cute kiddos! In spite of the high humidity and crazy July weather this was so much fun and I'm very honored to have spent some time with them during their stay in Virginia. When chatting with Jennifer about outfits ahead of their session she mentioned that her daughter wanted to wear these yellow shoes for photos - I love that so much. It is something she (and I) will never forget when seeing these images. A great reminder to help kids be a part of the process and let their beautiful personalities shine and document them!

This session was shot on a Nikon F100 and Pentax 645, Fuji400h Film and processed at The Find Lab

The Puff Family

Chatham Manor was the perfect backdrop for these family photos to celebrate the Puff's newest addition to the family! I loved my time with them and can't believe how beautiful the morning was. Two precious little girls...I hope they grow to be the best of friends! There is nothing in this world quite like a sister!

Shaughnessy Film Family Studio Session

I have another all film session to share today and its such a lovely one! Film continues to teach me so much about myself as an artist. There is just nothing like it. Film is a process and it brings the art and magic back to photography in so many ways for me. It requires so much patience and slowing down. Learning to be 'Intentional' has been a big part of this year in my life. It has been one of those gritty processes that brings lots of growth. In a day and age when we don't really need to wait for much it feels sort of strange to finish a session, package film up, send it away and then just wait. There is nothing left for me to do, no instant gratification but also no pressure to do anything. It is kind of wonderful! Eventually I get an email that my scans are ready and I can start the process of getting them to clients. Slow is feeling very right these days and I'm so so happy with these images!
