There’s nothing like a great family photo session to help recharge my mental batteries, especially after several straight months of shooting weddings! They’re fun, laid back, and more importantly they capture and record a wonderful period in family life. As you’ll see we had an amazing time with baby Cole as he put on a show with his adorable smile and charming personality!
I met Chris and Roshelle a few years back, shooting their engagement session and it’s hard to believe they’re parents now! It’s so cool to have the opportunity to be a part of a couples life and watch their transformation from “almost newlyweds” to parents. It was a pleasure to reconnect with them and meet baby Cole. I love that name by the way. Much is said in a name. And what could be more perfect than “Cole” which means “People’s Victory”. I’m sure Chris and Roshelle would tell you he is indeed their victory!
We started this amazing shoot at Pocahontas State Park which is located right outside Richmond Virginia. I’d never been there, but once I arrived I knew we were going to get some amazing shots! It’s absolutely beautiful there. Our first location was in a beautiful field right by the entrance and we couldn’t have timed it any better! As the sun was starting to set baby Cole started to shine!
Just having had a little one of my own, Cole’s smile made me want to melt. Seriously, could he be any more perfect? More than once, I zoned out; just sitting and staring at him, but I had a job to do. We spent about an hour shooting in that field and then moved to a bridge and dock, to wrap up the session before the sun set on us. This session could not have gone better and I accredit it to the company I was with; Chris, Roshelle, and Cole. Simply perfect.
Thank you both again for allowing me to record your precious memories!
