Condrey Family Portrait Session & Installation


The Condrey Family Portrait Session turned out to be the perfect holiday gift. Lauren and Keith were married 25 years ago and we were there to capture the wonderful memories of their special day. Now what a “treat” it is to be photographing their children, Lydia and Wright. And, we use the word “treat” partially because Laura is the co-owner of Pearl’s Cupcake Shoppe in Richmond, Virginia. As we experienced with Mary’s children and her niece, leaving home for college is a heart-wrenching event. You want nothing but the best for your children, however, being left behind with only the memories of their footsteps is heartbreaking for any parent. This is why celebrating this milestone with a family portrait is a perfect way to keep their memory at home forever, no matter where they end up in life.

During this session, watching Lydia genuinely caring about her little brother just melted Jamie’s heart. She is such a great big sister and we know Wright will miss her when she leaves for college. When Lauren brought her family to our studio she wanted to capture this special time in their lives. In addition, she planned on giving a framed portrait to her parents for their holiday gift. We say it all of the time but the gift of photography is truly one of the most special gifts to give. It is hard to believe that we photographed the Condrey’s wedding 25 years ago. It’s truly full circle to now be photographing their family.

The Condrey’s chose to do both black and white studio shots as well as shots in our garden.  We absolutely love how all of the images turned out. Scroll all the way down to see the final framed portrait of Lydia and Wright.

Lauren was brought to tears when we presented her with the framed portrait. She knew this would be such a wonderful gift her parents at the holidays. This gift will be something that the grandparents will treasure.  Also, it will be part of their family for a lifetime. Again, we cannot express enough what a wonderful gift photography is. Just imagine giving her family something that they will truly get joy out of every day. It is the gift that keeps on giving.

Maymont Park Engagement Session

Maymont Park Engagement Session Alicia and Andrew’s Maymont Park Engagement Session was perfection.

Maymont Park Engagement Session


Alicia and Andrew’s Maymont Park Engagement Session was perfection. The weather was unseasonably warm but we were happy with the beautiful sunshine and Maymont is the perfect backdrop. Situated in the city of Richmond, Maymont is truly one of the city’s little treasures. The trees, flowers, foliage, and landscaping is always beautiful which makes it a great place for an outdoor portrait session.

This was also a very special location for Alicia and Andrew because he proposed in the Japanese Gardens at the park. We maneuvered our way around the park and eventually ended up in the gardens at the grotto where he popped the question. They changed outfits with each new location but the process was quick and painless. They were open to trying different poses and we got lots of different expressions from both Alicia and Andrew.

The flowers were full of color and their outfits coordinated perfectly with the scenery. Jamie’s favorite moment was when the couple sat by the river and she put her toes in the water with his arms around her. They ended the day where their new lives officially began, with a kiss just outside the grotto. All in all, it was a perfect day to begin a perfect life.

Hall Family 2017 Portrait Session


We love this Hall Family 2017 Portrait Session! We have been photographing the Hall Family for years and we always look forward to having Kate, Travis, Piper, Forde, and Caroline in our studio. Getting to photograph families over multiple years and watching the children grow is a true highlight for us.

This family has so much love for each other and it shows in their vibrant smiles and constant laughter. We all know that family and life is not easy. However, when you make time to document moments like this, you will remember these memories for a lifetime.

Sometimes families choose to just document the kids but we love that the Halls capture everyone, including the dogs! Yes, it takes time and it even takes money but the joy we see in their eyes when we deliver the final portraits lets us know that they believe it is worth every penny.

We challenge each of you to consider booking a family portrait session in 2018. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation contact, Mary.

We would also like to thank Lou Stevens glam Squad for their wonderful hair and make-up for this session.
