A Very Merry Fontaine Christmas

December 26th, 2014

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Fontaine family! As a gift to their parents, the Fontaine’s held a special photography session the day after Christmas, while the family was in town. What a great gift! A chance to update their family photographs and extra time to spend with their little Will and each other!

The Collins Family at Chrysalis Winery

December 7th, 2014

Thanks to a referral, I had the chance to meet and work with this attractive family at the beautiful Chrysalis vineyard in Middleburg, Virginia. We lucked out with a sunny and a decently warm day, amidst all the constant rain we have been receiving throughout the week. This family was so much fun to shoot and were super prepared for a session with their daughter, allowing her to wear her pink tutu and holding her lollipop for ransom.

Sweet Lilah had one thing in mind … her lollipop! During the entire session, she constantly asked, “can I have my lollipop now?” and when she was told “no,” she’d give a 2 second smile, and ask again.
When Lilah was finally given it at the end of the session as her reward, she replied, “No, I want to save it for after brunch,” gave big smiles, and started dancing around.
Had we only known that was her plan all along …. ;-D

Baby Emmett

December 5th, 2014

The time has come! We’ve become so emotionally invested in this family … from being one of the first people to know about the pregnancy so we could shoot their save-the-date photographs to photographing the baby belly three months prior to the delivery date to now! The time has come to introduce baby Emmett!!! And he was well worth the wait!

And although we are not Cowboy fans ourselves, we couldn’t resist putting up the cute photos below, as Ryan is a huge Cowboy fan and from Texas so we know it means a lot to him and his family to have this prop in the photos with Emmett.

A Schoenfeld Fall Session

November 23rd, 2014

I am so blessed to not only have this family as wonderful clients, but even more blessed to call them friends. Having the opportunity to watch Gabi and Tyler grow into such well-behaved and sweet kids is such an honor and hanging out with the parents are definitely a perk! However, I’m getting a little off-topic here! This session was all about an updated family photo, one they haven’t had since Tyler was still in the belly. So being able to capture his personality on camera and how he responds to his big sister was a joy! It was a fun session filled with fall foliage, leaf-throwing, and laughter!

A Fontaine Family Winter Session

November 16th, 2014

It’s been a little over 1-1/2 years since I last saw this family, and they’re even more adorable than I remembered! Little Will isn’t so little anymore, and he’s running around, keeping up with the big people now! Despite the cold temperature and brutal winds, the Fontaine family were good sports, smiling, laughing, and all … not that it was too difficult with how cute Will was behaving. He loved the open outdoors and Liz and Scott loved keeping up with him. These photographs say it all:
