Golden Hour Mini Session | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

Ohmygoodness, what a beautiful Fall season of family sessions we had towards the end of 2018! I’m finally getting caught up on blogging more from October-November and I had to share this one.

This was my first time with this sweet family, and I was pretty obsessed with the kiddos hair! Check out that gorgeous red…wish I could bottle that color. We had a fun afternoon in Chesapeake and that golden Fall light was just perfection. Here are just a few favorites of our time together!

Gimme all the snuggle shots!

Such a blast - I love meeting new families! My Winter and Spring calendar is starting to fill up and I’d love to see you. Drop me a note here or email me at eammonsphotos@gmail.com for best availability. :)

Chat Soon!

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.

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,

Fall Sunset at Stumpy Lake | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

Oh, Fall. Stay awhile - won't you?

The light, the colors, the fluffy tall grass - I am smitten, you guys. 

I was so honored this sweet family reached out to me for a session. They'd been with a photographer for years who had recently moved, so I know it takes some serious trust to book somebody new. We get comfy with our people and change can be tricky.

But, let me tell you something that makes me love my job even more.

After about 5 minutes, they felt like old friends. We were swapping Halloween costume choices, birthday party themes and the joys of being five-years-old. It's like SO much better than being four - am I right?! They were so natural and laid back together, and I loved witnessing their unique relationships together. And Ms. Emerie was ready to direct and pose - I think I might need to hire her as my littlest assistant you guys, LOL! About ten minutes in, she requested I should "take a picture of just Mommy and Daddy and I will watch!" I mean - really? #meltmyheart

I sustain myself with the love of family.

Thank you so much for the recent influx of inquiries, I am trying my very best to work my calendar to serve some awesome families! I will officially be done with 2017 sessions by the 2nd week in December (not including newborns that are coming - yay!). If you've reached out recently, please follow up soon. Thank you, friends! xoxo

Best,

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

September Sunset at Little Island Park | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

Parenthood can pull at our heartstrings like nothing else. This ride of loving little people while still pursuing a career, personal goals, friendships and nurturing a marriage is a WILD one. Plus, there's no training or guide book - so most days we're just winging it. Can you relate?

This family is about to be separated due to work commitments, and Mom wanted to sneak in a photo session. I imagine her looking at these images while being miles apart from her babies. It yanks at my heart. I am grateful that the weather cooperated and we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset session at Little Island Park in Virginia Beach!

This was my second session with these cuties and they are so full of personality! Which is really how I prefer it. ;)

I loved the way little sis kept tugging on her Dad's beard! She was feeling shy and it helped comfort her - so sweet. And luckily, she didn't tug too hard - haha ;)

Adventure is worthwhile in itself.
