Snuggles with Maren 04.02.13

Well after my busiest fall ever, I'm about to dive back into busy season again, with 6 sessions this week and my first wedding of the year this Saturday April 6th. So I thought I should share at least some sessions from the fall. :)

I did newborn photos for Maren, and this most recent shoot was for her 1st birthday. I just adore this family, and I love how Lisa and Scott's love for their baby girl just jumps out of the photos. So precious! Enjoy!

Lindsey + Jake: Wedding Preview 01.15.13

It was one of those perfect 70 degree fall days at King Family Vineyards for Lindsey and Jake's wedding, and I am so honored to have been a part of it. They are two of the sweetest people you could meet -- and so are their families and friends! Lindsey and Jake decided to see each other before the ceremony, and I just LOVE the LOVE that shines through in those photos. Lindsey & Jake, thank you for asking me to be a part of your wedding day! It was magical, and I am so happy for you both! Hugs! ~Kristine

Niki + Ian: Wedding Preview 11.27.12

What a gorgeous Charlottesville wedding! The ceremony was held at St. Paul's Memorial Church at the University of Virginia and the reception was on the downtown mall -- at the Jefferson Theater. It was the first time I had photographed a wedding at either of these places, and wow, they were just awesome. Throw in the sunny weather we had, a beautiful bride with one of the most stunning dresses I've seen, her handsome & doting hubby, a FUN wedding party (complete with sunglasses and top hats), and two lovely families and we had a recipe for perfection.

Niki & Ian, from your engagement session to your wedding, I have loved every minute of being your photographer. Thank you for all the laughs and for making my job so much fun. You will always hold a special place in my heart. Congratulations!! xoxo ~Kris

Here are just a few favorites from the big day!

Christine + Matt: Wedding Preview 11.20.12

I have photographed THREE Baranowski weddings in the past year, and now I feel like part of their beautiful family! First it was Alicia & Jeremy, then it was Alex & Tommy, and then on August 3rd of this year, I photographed the 3rd and final one -- for Christine and Matt. Christine is seriously my hero with her crafty details. Think monograms, seersucker, handpainted signs, cowgirl boots -- Pinterest needs to have these pictures so that other brides can benefit from her talent!

See what I mean -- just amazing!


The ceremony and reception took place at Bluemont Vineyard in Northern Virginia.


It is an awesome venue.


I started my day with the girls getting ready...








Everyone in Stella & Dot. Love it!

Some cake cutting.




And the bouquet and garter toss.










Me and my 3 lovely brides, Alex, Alicia and Christine.


I'm so lucky to have photographed all 3 of their weddings from July 2011 to August 2012. I have 6 great new friends!


Then it was time to party.








Christine & Matt, on this Thanksgiving Eve, I just want to say that I am truly blessed to know you and you are truly blessed to have found each other. With so much love and appreciation! XOXO ~Kristine

Little Miss Magic 11.16.12

Some beautiful images of beautiful Peyton and her family -- and the beautiful piece of technology (her cochlear implants) that has allowed her to hear her Mommy and Daddy's voices...and the sound of the ocean too! Here are a few favorites from our session at the beach, and a slideshow at the end too. Enjoy!

What an amazing and inspirational family! Jessica and Troy, thank you for asking me to do these precious photos for you. Peyton is truly "Little Miss Magic" and she taught me so much in our 2 hours together. Her smile says it all! She is so happy to hear the world, and I'm so happy to hear of all her progress with words and counting. Go Peyton! Hugs! ~Kristine

A Day at the Beach 11.12.12

A day at the beach with 3 beautiful little girls, their parents, their aunts and uncles, AND their grandparents! Here are a few favorites as I'm finishing the entire gallery. Enjoy!

Since it was a goal to get some good group portraits, we did those first. Look at those precious grandbabies and their smiles!


Then we did it again with the second set of grandparents. Just love.


With those crossed off the list, it was time to focus on what else? The kids! First Amy and Dave's family.


Riley will be turning 3 soon.


And she did just what toddler girls do at the beach.


She ran...


And ran...


And ran. I loved capturing every detail of it.


In the short pauses, I was ready.


Love the sand on her face.


What a beauty!


I love how you can see our reflections in her glasses.


Precious.


Baby sister Kinley gave me a different set of challenges.


She didn't like that thing called sand.


Lift her up out of it...


And she was as happy as a clam.


Thank goodness for rocking chairs.


She is just gorgeous.


Look at those cheeks!


Oh happy girls, you made my day with these smiles!


Next I turned my attention to Amy's brother's family -- Ryan, Kerrie, and baby Kathryn.


We got some with Mommy...


Some with Daddy...


And a bunch of the whole family.


Last time I saw them I was photographing their wedding...


And now here they are as parents.


My job is so rewarding.


Look at that little beauty.


She has so much personality....from serious...


...to giggles in 2 seconds flat.


Baby feet, just delicious!


Just too much.


To Kerrie and Ryan...


And to Amy and Dave and your entire families, thank you for asking me to do these pictures. Hugs! ~Kris
