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,

Little Island Park Sunset | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

It’s that time of year! Beach sessions are wrapping up and pretty soon temps will be dropping here in Virginia Beach. It has been an incredible season of family, maternity and newborn sessions. We’ve made memories, played and laughed. It has been so good for my soul!

If you don’t want to miss out on 2019 beach session slots, sign up for the EAP family newsletter for first dibs! I only send out emails regarding availability, mini session signups aaaannd the occasional treat. :)

This seemed to be the year where the couples I photographed were very similar to me and my husband. I’ve captured two couples who were celebrating their 12th wedding anniversary. We just met that mark last June! I’ve worked with families that attend our church, are navy brats and are also obsessed with sloths. Clearly, we had a LOT to discuss, haha!

Here are just a few favorites from my night last week with the Finney family! How cute are these little girls?!

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! :)

Golden Hour at the Beach! | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

Meeting new families gives me so much joy! My little extrovert self is so uplifted by hearing their stories. This adorable family have only been in Virginia Beach a short time, but are loving it already!

We had a blast chasing the sunset and their sweet little one-year-old at the Virginia Beach oceanfront last weekend. He was probably the happiest baby I have every photographed! True, I say this often, LOL! But seriously, he was nothing but smiles and so excited to explore/eat/dig the sand with Mom and Dad. ;) 

Gah, SO excited for all the beach sessions on my calendar!!
