The Custers | Family Session | Chatham, Virginia Photographer

The Custers are some good friends of ours who live out of since they were in for the weekend, they booked a session with us for their little family, and for Layla's turning ONE! We were so excited about this session! Layla is just too cute...and her Mommy and Daddy are so much fun to be around! I seriously think this is one of the cutest families ever!! It was too hard to pick only a few faves, so here are quite a few;) I'm not quite finished with the whole session yet, but these will hold them over!

Sun-shots are some of my favorites:)

Layla knows "nose!"

Daddy love:)

Mommy love:)

I don't know about you, but I think Layla looks a lot like Mommy here:)

There are too many of Layla on the quilt that I love!


Such a sweet, fun family!

Kolton is 1! | Chatham, Virginia Photographer

My sweet boy, Kolton, is 1 already!! I just can't believe it has been a whole seems like just yesterday that I was pregnant, then in the hospital having this sweet bundle of joy. He truly was a bundle of joy...I can't remember life before him! My husband and I couldn't have asked for a bigger blessing...we have watched him grow from a little peanut to now a toddler! Kolton will forever hold a HUGE place in my, before I cry, here are some photos (just a few that I grabbed real quick!) that give a glance into the past year...

One of my favorite photos from the hospital...he hadn't even taken his first official breath yet!

Proud Daddy cutting the cord...

My little thumb sucker:)

3 months...the red chair photos begin!

The next few are from his 5 month session:) Some of my favorites!

LOVE the one below!

Sitting up like a big man!


I SOOOO wish we could have gotten him smiling of my favorites of the chair photos...we figured out a few minutes later that he just wasn't feeling well...


Look at him all big! Standing with his chair!!

May at the Beach:)

Walking at 9.5 months!

My adventurous little man:) The next few are all 11 months...

First Haircut! At 11 months...

Here, he is almost 1!

This photo was used for his Birthday Party invitations...

I still haven't blogged his cake smash session...I am WAY behind on editing his photos! He enjoyed it, that's for sure! We used my old high chair--yep, you heard that right, this was my high chair when I was a baby! He uses it every time he is at Nana & Poppa's:)

At his Birthday Party...a "barnyard" theme:)

Running around with is candle:)

And...on the 15th...his 1st Birthday! Such a big boy now! And no, I didn't make that amazing birthday poster prop:) Nor the onesie! All thanks to Etsy!

Sigh. I can't believe it. I just can't! And I'm sure the years ahead will fly by just as quickly...I'll just watch him grow and steal all the hugs and kisses that I can:)

Thanks for taking the time to read my sappy post!

~Blessed beyond measure~

A year ago, she was IN that watering can!

Love this series!! She was too funny!

Family Summer Session | Perkins

From a recent session with the Perkins family, whom you may remember seeing back in the spring...they're about to celebrate their son's 1st birthday as well:)

The weather tried to put a damper on my efforts...this photo below is one I snapped where Brett and Joshua saw it lightning!

Joshua's smash cake didn't stand a chance! And neither did the balloons! He started off with 4 and ended up popping them all by the end! Such a cutie:)
