First Birthday and Family Session! | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

There’s nothing sweeter than getting to watch my littlest clients grow up! All these precious newborns who are now toddlers, but still have the same expressions they did when they were brand new. It always amazes me how fast they grow.

I love getting to catch up with parents and document the first birthday. There’s lot of ways to capture this milestone, and sometimes that just looks like an outdoor mini session! Check out this gorgeous little redhead and her smitten Mom and Dad. :)

A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.
— Agatha Christie

Although I’m done taking on sessions for 2018, I am currently booking into Spring/Summer of 2019. My weekend dates are always the first to go, so reach out soon if you have a date in mind! If you’re new here, I specialize in maternity, family and lifestyle newborn sessions.

Send me a quick email and let’s get your 2019 session on the books!

Best,

Erin

Virginia Beach Sunrise | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

No job is perfect, right? The only negative about being an outdoor, lifestyle family photographer is the weather! The forecast has been incredibly unpredictable in Hampton Roads this Summer. So many of my Virginia Beach oceanfront sessions have been rescheduled multiple times. 

My good friend and photography student, Jill, had been so patient with the endless rescheduling. Finally, we opted for a sunrise session to avoid evening thunderstorms and it was magical! Well worth the early alarm and afternoon nap to make it happen. ;) 

A great side effect? My husband loves when I work sunrise sessions because it means a Starbucks latte and chocolate croissant for him. His love language is baked goods, ha! 

Jill is an incredibly talented photographer and has an IG account over at Elodie Grace Photography - be sure to follow her there! She has mentored with me several times and assisted during some of my sessions. I love her patience with learning, eye for details and how she documents her daughter's childhood so beautifully. 

Here are just a few favorites from my morning with her sweet family!

We were together, I forget the rest.

I'm all about splashing in the water at the end of a fun beach session! I love that Jill prioritized letting loose and connecting with her family. There is so much beauty in embracing the messy sometimes, right? 

Friends, my 2018 calendar is nearly full. If you have been wanting a session, please reach out soon! Also, if you want to lock in a 2019 date at 2018 pricing, now's the time. Drop me a line below and let's get you scheduled! :)

Best,

Erin

Fall Mini Favorites | Hampton Roads Family Photographer

Fall Minis were such a hit this year! I loved seeing all the familiar faces and making new friends. A BIG thank you to everyone for being flexible on weather, jumping in with smiles and trusting me to capture your memories. 

Did you miss Minis this year? Sign up for the EAP Newsletter! Fall Minis info went out in August and sold out in just a few days. I love spoiling my #EAPfamilies! :)

My newsletter list subscribers are the first to know when minis are available. I was able to open a second date this year and I'm so glad I did! Loved seeing all these sweet families.

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

Friends, thank you so much for tagging me and referring friends. As a small business owner - this is everything to me! There is no greater compliment than a referral. 

If you have recently inquired, please know I only have a few available dates left for 2017. I have one weekend slot in November open and just a couple of Friday evenings. Daylight Savings will be here in just a couple of weeks which means sunset time is much earlier. Don't hesitate to reach out. I'd love to work with your family!

Have a fabulous Fall weekend! xoxo

Erin
