Next up for the blog is two Virginia portrait sessions! I do work in Virginia because Brian and I went to college at Bridgewater and my in-laws live there…so the connections are still present. Only a small amount of my JFP work takes place in Virginia and it’s nice to have a taste of that “southern charm” every now and then. 🙂

I met Ashley and Josh last summer for their maternity session. It was a hot summer evening and Ashley was two months away from her due date. Then, three months later, I met them in their home for their newborn session with Miss Rory.

I remember sitting in their living room talking about life and work with Josh while Rory nursed. And I remember Ashley’s genuine smile and new mommy glow. They made me feel so welcome and are incredibly friendly people…I just know they’re going to be AWESOME parents!

Mommy-baby moments by the window in the nursery are some of my favorites. 🙂

Rory got a little fussy towards the end, but Josh snuggled her and calmed her down. 🙂

She fell back asleep and we were able to get some close-ups…

Now it’s time for my nephew Joel and his parents! Joel is just three weeks younger than our Jack, so it’s been fun to watch them grow together…and it’s going to be so neat to continue to watch as they get older! They haven’t seen each other in a while and now that they’re both more mobile, it’ll be interesting to see them together during our next gathering. 🙂 But enough about the two of them, check out Mr. Joel! He impressed me right from the start! Smiling and sitting and being super cute…he did so well!

Fun fact: We took pictures at their new house! It was still in the process of being built, but they moved in a month later! It really was a perfect spot for their session.
