The Dabrowski Family | Fall 2016 http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2016/10/the-dabrowski-family-fall-2016 I always, ALWAYS have so much fun with this family.  I really look forward to seeing them each session.  This was my fifth with them, and I just couldn't believe how big and handsome they both were.  Older brother even told his mom "Miss Kerri is going to tell me how big and handsome I am."  He was exactly right!

The brothers (really the entire family) are GREAT in front of the camera.  Funny, comfortable and cooperative.  That combined with a picture perfect location equal what I consider a fabulous session...check it out for yourself!

SydneyNewborn_WLSblog1dSydneyNewborn_WLSblog1d With a bit of a rough start and an unanticipated NICU stay, her newborn photos were not as "new" as had been planned, but she was still the sweetest.  We didn't have a great deal of time to work with, but I am in LOVE with these images so much.  I hope you enjoy some of my favorites!

These next two were from another quick session at one month old, to get an image for a birthday present for daddy (using his high school football helmet!).  :)  I just love how it looks as though she is holding up her finger as if to say "my daddy's #1".

The Three Musketeers... http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/11/the-three-musketeers I know I have said it before, but I really hold a special place in my heart for mommas of three boys!  Growing up I babysat for three young brothers for nearly six years.  I don't pretend to know what the day-to-day must be like for these women, but I know it's some kind of combination of exhaustion, exuberation and ENERGY!  Yet these moms make it look like it's just No. Big. Deal.  This is a family of three young boys (8, 6 and 3) and take a look at this momma...she's amazing!

Pilon_Fall14-4190_edit_webPilon_Fall14-4190_edit_web

And she always does a wonderful job with their family outfits.  While the November weather in Virginia is always kind of unpredictable, it looked like we were going to luck out with some good weather for their session this year (which I was REALLY hoping for, since her poor little guys FROZE at our session last year).  But, lo and behold, a cold front moved in late in the week and the unseasonably warm temps we had experienced took a 20+ degree dip and it turned a little blustery.  So, what is a momma to do when she realized her outfits are no longer weather appropriate?  Well yes, she goes shopping.  And I absolutely love the sweater look she put together!

Pilon_Fall14-3912_edit_webPilon_Fall14-3912_edit_web After three years of shooting this family, these guys are finally becoming more comfortable around me around me, so it didn't take as long for them to open up this year.  Check out my favs from this session!  I especially love this one of the three brothers.  You can just see how close they are!

A Beautiful Day in the Countryside... http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/11/a-beautiful-day-in-the-countryside Oh. My. Goodness!!  I have LOVED having all of these new locations to shoot at this fall.  It's always a little nerve wracking to shoot a family at a location they have chosen, one that I'm unfamiliar with.  I typically try to arrive a little early to scout it out before they get there.  But this particular location was SO large that it was simply overwhelming.  I just loved the various places we ended up shooting and the variety of shots we got.  I hope you love these Caroline!  I simply had the worst time selecting a few favorites.

Two Silly Siblings... http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/11/two-silly-siblings I was told by mom ahead of time that while she has been able to capture some good individual shots of her kiddos, that great shot of them together has been a tough one to capture.  From the moment I read that statement, I felt like I had a challenge on my hands.  I have to say that I completely agree with her assessments of her children being adorable subjects and yes...individual shots were done pretty easily (aside from some silly faces here and there!).

Molina_Fall14-3734_edit_webMolina_Fall14-3734_edit_web Now...put them side-by-side and ... yes, those beautiful natural smiles weren't quite as natural and easy to come by, but I think we succeeded!

A Family On the Move... http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/11/a-family-on-the-move I'll give you three guesses as to why I think this momma is amazing...but you'll probably only need one!  However, you may need to scroll down through all of the pictures to see what I'm talking about.  ;)

Loved spending time with this family.  Beautiful subjects only added to the joy of this session.  While older brother was often times very stoic and not very giving with his smiles,  and the boys were super active and on the move...these were still some of the most well behaved children I have had the pleasure of working with.  The weather was not the best, but these three kiddos (ages 4, 2 and 1) were super cooperative and happy! 

Thanks momma for braving the colder weather so that we could capture your family's love on camera.  I absolutely loved our time together and really hope that you love your images!

And now you can see why I think this is one Am.A.Zing momma!  Yes, that's right.  Momma is pregnant with baby #4...in addition to a 4 year old, 2 year old, and 1 year old!  And do you know that I'm not sure I heard her even one hint of exasperation in her voice the entire time we were together.  She simple exuded love, graciousness and peace.

A Walk in the Woods... http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/11/a-walk-in-the-woods I love hooking up with this family for their annual photo session every year.  Not only because mom is one of my very dearest friends and one of the most giving people I know, but also because they are just so. much. fun!  I mean the love and joy just oozes from them.  See for yourself...

I am always on the hunt for new session locations and just love it when my clients have their own ideas.  It makes for such a fresh session.  Not having ever been on this particular trail, I was completely at the mercy of dad.  He started down the trail and said "there's another bridge a little further out".  We started walking and came to this little break on the trail and the light was too much for me to resist.  So we took a quick pit stop here.

Some Outdoorsy Little Boys... http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/11/some-outdoorsy-little-boys I ALWAYS look forward to meeting up with this momma and her men.  One, because they are just adorable and fun to hang around with!  Two...because this momma has some serious style and I just love seeing what she pulls together for their outfits.  And she did not disappoint with this fall's selections!  I just LOVE the outdoorsy feel of their outfits, complete with their vest and sherpa hats.  SO FUN!

It was quite blustery this particular day, so it took a little while for the boys to "warm" up to me today...

ReynoldsFall14-315558comp_edit_webReynoldsFall14-315558comp_edit_web But having done at least two sessions a year with them for the past three years, I've become a bit of a familiar face to them and love the genuine smiles that eventually do come!  I think it helped that Daddy, Gramma and Auntie were there to help coerce some smiles, but hey, I'll take it!

ReynoldsFall14-3098BW_edit_webReynoldsFall14-3098BW_edit_web

I know it's not the perfect "everyone looking at the camera, smiling shot", but there is just something about the feel of this particular shot that I love.  Maybe it's momma's slight lean in toward her man, or how she has her arm around that little guy that is growing too fast.  Or maybe it's the little man she is holding staring at his momma.  I can't quite put my finger on it, but I do love it...perfect posed or not! ReynoldsFall14-322527comp_edit_webReynoldsFall14-322527comp_edit_web After they warmed up a little, I was able to get some individual smiles from all three of her little boys!

Two Bubbly Brothers... http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/11/two-bubbly-brothers It was such a pleasure to work with this family!  These two brother are just precious and totally FULL of smiles.  I mean, I think I heard "cheese" more times in this one session that in the past month, COMBINED!!  I told them I was going to record them saying it, because it was impossibly NOT to smile when hearing it.  ;)

A Lovely Little Lady... http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/11/a-lovely-little-lady Can you believe the eyes on this little girl?

Daddy, watch out...because you are going to have a beauty on your hands I do believe!  Loved working with this family.  It was so easy to see how much momma and daddy adore their little lady, and I think the smiles I got back from her are a reflection of the amount of love that she receives.

2014 Mini Session Dates Announced! http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/8/2014-mini-session-dates-announced

Good Afternoon Friends!

I'm back from our family vacation and in preparation of our first day of school here (in just 4 days), I have been updating my calendar. I know many of you have expressed interested in a Fall/Holiday mini-session.

I combed through the calendar and while it is filling up fast with those of you who took advantage of my Super Summer Specials, I was able to find two weekends.

PLEASE NOTE...due to a family event that just was added to our calendar, I had to change the original Saturday October 11th date to Sunday, October 5th.

 

2014 Mini Session-22014 Mini Session-2 I'm planning for the October day to be the traditional fall session, with the seasonal leaves, while the November date will have more of a wintery/Christmas feel.

While I have your attention, I also want to let you all know that November 16 will be the last day a session can be scheduled, for GUARANTEED Christmas delivery. Cards and products ordered from the November 15 mini-session will be delivered NO LATER than December 12.

Why schedule a mini session, you may ask yourself?

Well, I don't know about you, but it seems like my kids change from week to week!

Mini sessions offer a great opportunity to update that family photo without the cost (or time) of a full session.

And because I know that digital is the age in which we live...mini sessions are completely digital!

If it turns out that you just LOVE everything from your session (which is always my goal!), upgrade options will be available.

Some of these upgrades include:
Complete session disk (with custom printed cover and case) | $75
Print Package (1-8"x10; 2-5"x7"; 4-3.5"x5"; 8 wallets) | $75
Set of Three Mini Accordion Albums (another Customer Favorite) | $50
Printed Holiday Cards (a Customer Favorite) | Starting at $40
 

ALL OF THE ABOVE | $200

Ready to book your mini-session? Don't delay...sessions are limited and I expect they will fill quickly.

Click below to pay your session deposit, and then send me an email with your date choice (and preference of morning or afternoon session time), and I will provide you with a few times to choose from.

If you choose to upgrade your mini-session to include all of the EXTRAS in advance of your session, you will save $25!

Select One

Happy end of your summer.  I hope you all have a fantastic and relaxing weekend.

{PERSONAL POST} Family Beach Session http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/8/-personal-post-family-beach-session It's no secret that I LOVE the beach.  I think (no, I know) that I could live there...as long as my family was with me.  ;)  I would LOVE to live on the beach for the summer and invite all of my lovely clients to visit for beach photos!! 

Because, one of my favorite things about the beach is beach photos!  By now my husband and kiddos have learned that a trip to the beach will not be complete without a mini beach session.  And lucky for me, they are mostly cooperative.  We did have a few grouchy moments (from EACH of them individually), but for less than 40 minutes in SUPER hot and humid weather I am SO pleased with how they turned out. 

My family...These people are my heart and soul!  We had such a fun trip...can't wait to do it again!

MB2014-6139_Edit2_WebMB2014-6139_Edit2_Web My parents joined us for our trip this year, and my mom's birthday happened to fall during the week.  So, for her birthday, she asked for a group shop, a shot of her and my dad and one with her, my dad and the grandkids.  I can't wait to see the gallery wall she makes with these!

I think the shot of them with my kiddos is precious.

MB2014-6219_Edit2_WebMB2014-6219_Edit2_Web The group shot was a rather funny experience.  I originally positioned people, set the camera settings and tried to have a passerby, focus and shoot.  I wasn't too pleased with that one, as many of us were missing feet.  SO, I decided to position the camera on the railing of the boardwalk and use the self-timer (which I had to google to remember how to set, as I don't use it that often).  Because it was on the railing of the boardwalk, I had to tiptoe down the boardwalk and then quickly get into position (as I only had 10 seconds!).  I think it's perfect!  Hopefully a photo my mom will really treasure.

MB2014-6243_Edit_WebMB2014-6243_Edit_Web My momma and daddy!

MB2014-6416_Edit_WebMB2014-6416_Edit_Web And of course, I had to update the kiddos individual photos!

Tyler is our oldest son...8 years old!  In the first one I asked him to try and keep his eyes open, as he often squints his eyes up when he smiles.  Hasn't quite nailed the "natural eyes" yet. 

MB2014-6184_Edit_WebMB2014-6184_Edit_Web So, then I just let him laugh it off...and I LOVE these. 

MB2014-6188_Edit_WebMB2014-6188_Edit_Web MB2014-6189_Edit_WebMB2014-6189_Edit_Web Another try with the "open" eyes...getting better!

MB2014-6303_Edit_WebMB2014-6303_Edit_Web Lucas is our middle child and is 6 years old.  He can be my moody child when it comes to pictures.  So, you never know what you're going to get when it comes to him!  I often here "I'm done picturing", from this little guy.

MB2014-6248_Edit_WebMB2014-6248_Edit_Web

I'm pretty pleased with these especially! MB2014-6261_Edit_WebMB2014-6261_Edit_Web MB2014-6264_Edit_WebMB2014-6264_Edit_Web And our little princess, Kate, who turned 4 last month.

MB2014-6083_Edit_WebMB2014-6083_Edit_Web MB2014-6309_Edit_WebMB2014-6309_Edit_Web MB2014-6322_Edit_WebMB2014-6322_Edit_Web MB2014-6086_Edit_WebMB2014-6086_Edit_Web And one of the three kiddos.  I just LOVE this one...and how Tyler looks like such a protective big brother!

MB2014_6289_Edit_WebMB2014_6289_Edit_Web At this point, the kiddos thought they were done...momma had some other ideas.  I wanted just two more shots, one of the three of them looking toward the ocean and with the ocean in the background.

MB2014-6329_Edit_WebMB2014-6329_Edit_Web MB2014-6341_Edit_WebMB2014-6341_Edit_Web They surprised me by cooperating (kind of) for one more family shot.  (Thanks to my momma for snapping the photos of us.)

MB2014-6354_Edit_WebMB2014-6354_Edit_Web After I said "Ok, we're done", they took off to the ocean!

MB2014-6398_Edit_WebMB2014-6398_Edit_Web MB2014-6402_Edit_WebMB2014-6402_Edit_Web After running of some energy in the ocean, they cooperated for a few final shots.  I just love the soft sky and ocean in the background of these!

MB2014-6377_Edit_WebMB2014-6377_Edit_Web I am so excited to get these printed and up onto walls...they represent one of the things our family loves to do most together, which is why the photos are so special to me!

Jillian | 2014 Battlefield High Senior http://www.withlovestudio.com/blog/2014/4/jillian-2014-battlefield-high-senior Jillian

We were a little concerned that we might get rained out for this session.  Aside from a little breeze, which actually helped with some nice flowing hair shots, we really lucked out...as we didn't feel one drop of rain until about 2 minutes before the end of our session.  Couldn't have worked out better.  I love Jillian.  She is a smart, caring and intelligent young lady who also happens to be super photogenic.  I seriously don't think I got a bad shot our entire session!  Her long red hair, flawless skin and sparkly eyes made my job super easy.  Thanks Jill!  I hope you enjoy your preview.  :)
