A long overdue update!

It’s been quiet for me for a few weeks because I have been spending my time with a new addition to our family!

We spent the latter part of last year finishing up weddings and projects in anticipation of our bundle of joy. We did manage to squeeze in a maternity session for us just a couple of weeks before I gave birth to our daughter.

Brian took the ones of me in the side yard of our house. The one with both of us, I actually set a timer on the tripod. It must have been quite an amusing scene for our neighbors to see me waddling back and forth getting the camera adjusted.

And then we had to get her nursery ready, and this room was definitely a labor of love.

And in March, after 30 long hours, I gave birth to our sweet baby. Today she turned a month old and we celebrated with her own little photo session. This is one of my favorites:

I’m starting back up with photo sessions in May, so stay tuned for fun engagements and weddings. I really love all the couples I will be working with this year, so I am super excited. šŸ™‚

 

Daynah - Your maternity session looks great! Baby Penelope looks beautiful and her nursery is inspiring. šŸ™‚ I love it!

A Quick Update!

Happy 2011! I love the start of a new year…and yes, I make resolutions! At the end of the year I always go back to my list to see how much I accomplished. I can usually say that I get about 60% of my resolutions completed!

One of my resolutions for 2011 is to update my website galleries! Since I have a bit of a break before wedding season kicks back in, I’ll be updating the website in the next couple of weeks.

And I don’t think I mentioned this at all, but one of the sessions I photographed last year was featured on Perfect Bound here and here.

Stephanie - Happy 2011 and congratulations on the feature, Vera. The images are beautiful!

Vera - Thanks Stephanie…Happy 2011 to you too!

Katie & Darryl – Engagement Photography Session, Richmond, VA

I’m super excited to share Katie and Darryl’s engagement session. They are a hilarious, smile-y couple and I am so thrilled to be part of their wedding next year. Katie was a bridesmaid for one of my previous brides and I have to say I enjoy working with this group! šŸ˜‰

We met up the Sunday after Thanksgiving and they had just gotten back from the VT/UVA game (Go Hokies!). On top of that, it was a super chilly day, but these two are just awesome.

I had a hard time narrowing down to a few favorites:

Congratulations you two! šŸ˜‰

Katie - Vera, they are BEAUTIFUL!! I do not know if I could love them more!! Thank you SO MUCH šŸ™‚

Renee Geren - Katie and Darryl are such a wonderfully special couple, and these pictures really capture that! I love them!

Vera - Thank you for your kind compliments! I’m looking forward to working with Katie and Darryl for their wedding next year! They are great. šŸ™‚
