This Hignett Beach Portrait Session turned out great. We were so excited when Brooke called to have her second son, Walker’s beach portrait created. To this day, we will still remember photographing his big brother, Beckett. His session was pure magic. He had the most dreamy eyes that stared right into the beautiful sunrise. We knew Walker’s session would be just as special. 

Walker was a little shy in front of the camera, but we were able to capture some beautiful images that the family will cherish for years to come. We worked as a team to keep Walker’s attention on the camera so we could get the perfect shot. Meanwhile, big brother Becket was calm and caring and was patient during the entire session.

The sunrise provided us with the perfect warm colors that complemented the color palette for the family’s outfits. We captured images of the kids, mom and dad, as well as shots with the boys’ grandparents. It was so wonderful to see the three generations. 

Beach portraits provide a relaxed atmosphere that put the people at ease. Posing in front of the camera is not easy at any age, but with a skilled photographer and the company of your loved ones, it is easy to capture the perfect image.

Katrina & Paul's Engagement Session

We just love Katrina and Paul’s Engagement Session at Maymont Park. Maymont is located in the heart of the city of Richmond, Virginia.

We just love Katrina and Paul’s Engagement Session at Maymont Park. Maymont is located in the heart of the city of Richmond, Virginia. We have done many sessions at this particular park and we knew it was the perfect location for this couple.

When we first met Katrina and her mom, Karen, we just knew that we would be a perfect fit for photographing Katrina and Paul’s wedding and we’re so excited to be considered for their event. Karen works for Glave Homes, here in Richmond, and we have done a bit of commercial photography for the architecture firm so we had a common interest.

As we learned about the couple’s wedding we knew it would be a fun event to photograph. They were planning two events. The first being a traditional Indian Wedding for Paul’s wedding. Then a wedding that mimicked Katrina’s family’s traditions at the John Marshall Hotel. 

Katrina chose Maymont Park as the location for their engagement session. The architecture, flowers, and water features were a perfect fit for the three outfits she and Paul had in mind for the shoot. We started at the Japanese gardens, at the lower level of the park, with the first and most formal of outfits. Their clothing colors were a great compliment to the blooming hot pink azaleas. We utilized the arched bridge and surrounding areas, including a few poses of their reflections in the still water, before we moved up the hill for a more casual, but wonderfully coordinated dressy casual look and feel.

Dancing around and walking through the long pergola covering the Italian garden’s walkway, Katrina and Paul became very comfortable and relaxed. Our favorite shots was when Katrina slipped her arms around Paul and leans in really close with a big smile on her face. Moving up to the mansion and changing into jeans and casual shirts, we moved around the house and made our way to the front gates for the last location of the shoot. Photographing in the row of trees that line one side of the parking lot, one of our favorite spots and probably the most unused, we ended the session with a few fun shots of Paul picking up Katrina and kissing her.

McKinney Newborn Session

This McKinney Newborn Session is absolutely beautiful. Having a baby born in the NICU adds a whole new level of stress to the family of a newborn baby.

This McKinney Newborn Session is absolutely beautiful. Having a baby born in the NICU adds a whole new level of stress to the family of a newborn baby. When Baby Carter’s grandfather, Willie, contacted us after many walks around the NICU at VCU, he was so excited to have us photograph the next generation of his family legacy, that he booked the session before they knew the date Cater would be released to go home. We are honored to have our beautiful newborn portraits displayed in this wing of the hospital. They help to remind new parents and grandparents that their best days are yet to come, for their loved ones that are in need of a little extra support when they are born. 

When the McKinney family arrived at the studio we were so happy to finally meet Carter and his mother. They are a beautiful family, so it’s no wonder that Cater is so cute! We began the session while Cater was still sleeping. We love the portraits that we are able to capture with sleeping infants in the arms and hands of their lives family members. Their main portrait ended up being one of those poses. Cater was laying against his grandmother Raquel’s chest, sleeping with the most amazing little face all snuggled in. His gorgeous full, dark curly hair was so striking that it made for the best shots.

Then we moved quickly to get a few shots on our stack of white towels. This is a Hayes & Fisk tradition dating back to Mary’s son Jax. Who would have thought that 25 years later that iconic shot would be one of our most requested portraits.

Next, we added in Laiya with Willie and Carter and we were actually able to capture an instant of laughter as Cater’s pouty face was quickly displayed towards his Grandfather. This allowed us to capture a beautiful interaction between Laiya and her father, one filled with joy and laughter as Laiya was just being herself in the moment. We were able to create so many wonderful poses from this session.
