More of my Little One- Firefly Photography, Midlothian, Va. Newborn Photographer

Just a quick post to share a few more pictures of my little Londyn. She is 5 weeks old now and we are loving every minute (and every pound) of her! As a quick reminder, I will be returning from maternity leave as of January 1. Be on the look-out for some special deals.

She's Here!!

As most of you know, we've been expecting another little girl to arrive in November. I am pleased to announce that Londyn Soleil arrived on November 13 at 8:07 p.m. after only 2 hours of labor. She was born at home, weighing a whopping 10 lbs and measuring 22.5 inches. I am loving every minute with her and will be on maternity leave until January. Of course, Ms. Londyn has already had several photo sessions. I'll share a sneak peek for now and more in the days to come. Thank you so much for all your support and well wishes. I look forward to working with you all again soon!

Happily Ever After- Firefly Photography Annapolis, Md. Engagement

I had the privilege of working with this cute couple several weeks ago (I'm so behind on my blogging!) Since they were having a nautical themed wedding, we knew Annapolis would be the perfect spot for their engagement session. We had a great time walking on the quaint streets and finally ending up on the water. They've seen their gallery already, but I wanted to share them with the rest of you. Enjoy.

Double Newborn Sweetness!!- Firefly Photography, Midlothian, Va. Twin Newborn Photographer

Oh, how I adored doing this session. These babies were a double-dose of sweetness. Little Miss C was a pound bigger than her brother and had lots of dark hair. Little Mr. M was laid back and relaxed and had blond hair and amazing color. We did a marathon session (over four hours) but it was so worth it. Mom and Dad, congrats again on your perfect little miracle babies. I know you're over the moon :)

Miss E in Grandma's Arms...is there anything more precious?

Beautiful Baby R- Firefly Photography Richmond Va. Newborn Photographer

I was privileged not only to do little R's newborn photos, but also to capture his birth. We thought he would be a big baby, but had no idea he would be almost 10 lbs! His mama and daddy handled everything like pros and I was so honored to share in that wonderful experience with them. So, here he is at 9 days old. I love all the babies I work with, but he was seriously a dream. I don't think he pouted or fussed once while I was working with him! Here's your sneak peek guys! Enjoy :)

A Session with Sweet Little Thumbelina!- Midlothian, Va. Newborn Photographer

At a little over 5lbs, sweet baby "C" was the tiniest baby I have ever held (and I've held a LOT of babies!). She was so beautiful, and had the most delicate little features. I had so much fun working with her and her mom (who was absolutely beaming). I know it's been a long road, Mom and Dad, but she was definitely worth the wait! Enjoy your sneak peek and the rest of your gallery will be soon to follow.

D & J's E-Session- Midlothian, Va. Engagement & Couple Photographer

I'm behind in blogging this, but I still wanted to share. I don't get to do a lot of e-sessions, so this one was a treat. D & J are friends of ours and I was honored to shoot their e-session for them. They were a lot of fun and very much in love. We spent the afternoon driving around and stopping at cool locations. We had some laughs and got some fun shots. Here are a few of my favorites.





A New Year and a New Firefly Photography!

So I'm a little late in launching everything, but I wanted to make sure it was perfect (my site is still a day or two from being done, so be patient!). I've made some changes to my policies and structure, but I think you're going to be really happy with what I'm offering now.

I've changed my session fees to include digital images. These means that, at the very minimum, you'll get 1 digital image from your session along with a 5x7 reference print. You can use this image for cards, prints, gifts, almost anything you can imagine. You will also get a web version of the image(s) you choose, to share online (email, facebook, etc). You'll also have the option to upgrade to a session with more digital images, or even my top package, which includes all the images from your session. All digital images include a 5x7 reference print to help you see what your print should look like. I'll still be selling prints and products, along with some new add-on options. Please contact me for more information and a detailed list of prices/options. Thanks for sticking with me and I look forward to working with you in the new year!
