This little boy has the absolute best smile.   I have been photographing this family for a very long time and I just love his smile since for the first year he cried most of his sessions but the last two sessions he has been all smiles.   They are just the sweetest- it makes you just want to snuggle with him all day long. He was on the move during his cake smash session in my home studio.

Maternity Photography| Studio| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photography

Whoa, gorgeous MaMa! Capturing K.  maternity session at my home studio is quite a treat because not only do I get to spend time with a glowing mama, but we also with different outfits.   Bonus: In a few weeks I’ll get to snuggle her new baby! Maternity sessions are such an important way to document this huge milestone in your life. Glowing mama and growing family! Your littles will want to look back on these moments, and your photographs will show them just how excited the family was for their arrival. Maternity sessions are typically captured between 32 and 36 weeks, and we can go as easy as you need or be as adventurous as you want! I’ll help you select a location – in your home or outdoors – and outfits! This process is meant to be FUN and EASY, so I’ll hold your hand! What are you waiting for?!

Baby Isabelle| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photographer| Jacki G. Photography

Meet sweet baby Isabelle. This little lady was a doll. She was as beautiful as could be and is already so loved and adored by her beautiful parents. For Isabelle’s newborn photography session we used lots of neutrals and grey.

Sweet little Chloe is growing up, too fast!  It feels like just yesterday that I photographed her newborn sessions. But look at her now she is a cute ONE yr old. She is definitely very fashionable and she certainly looks adorable in every outfit that she wore!  She loved her cake and since it was her Birthday she didn’t have to smile if she didn’t want to :)

Newborn Twins A & C.| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photographer

Twins are always fun to photograph. I travel to your home and bring the studio to you. The biggest challenge is getting them to sleep at the same time. I typically start with the sleepiest twin for their solo images while a parent is getting the other to sleep. Then I bring them together for sibling images, and finish up with the other twin’s solo images. I really enjoy working with twin families, and have so much respect for parents with twins! Having ONE newborn is challenging, so I can’t imagine what it’s like to have two!

Anthony & Cole are fraternal twins who could not be more different, Anthony is tiny and delicate, about 5 lbs and his brother Cole has about 1.5 pounds heavier. It was so funny to see the two of them next to each other! I just love how genetics work out with siblings sometimes.

After I finished photographing the babies, we moved on to the parent and family portion. There are lots of variations with two newborns that we’ll walk through, and I’ll assess your comfort level in how you hold them. Baby safety is the top priority , , so we won’t place babies in potentially risky positions even in your arms. I am always checking with you to make sure you feel that your baby is secure and that you have a good hold on them. We’ll be in constant communication during our time together about how you’re feeling and if you need a break to sit down and rest. Postpartum recovery is a process, and it’s normal to feel extra tired or to become a bit light headed after standing for a while. A six pound baby might not feel so heavy at first, but can feel like an anvil after ten minutes for a new mom.

Enjoy just a few of my favorite images from Anthony & Cole’s newborn session!

Welcome to the world E. | Newborn Photography| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA

Newborn Eva was so cuddly for her newborn session.  I love that I have the flexibility to do both in-home sessions and studio sessions.  Most of my clients choose the in-home session, which is no extra charge to travel to my clients home.  My studio is located in Short Pump, VA

Sharing this sweet little babe on the blog today.  Nothing beats newborn photography for me,  this is my favorite type of photography...Just the newness of the little one and the excitement to document a new addition to a family is so special to me.   I am so thankful for every set of new parents that allow me into their homes to photograph their new baby.  Here are my favorites from this session.

I first worked with Mercedes and Ryan for their first maternity session and newborn session with their first daughter. I was thrilled to hear from Mercedes again letting me know she was pregnant with her second child, a baby girl. They loved their experience with us and wanted to work with us again for her new daughters session. I absolutely love seeing my clients throughout the years for different sessions as their family and children grow.

Since Mercedes had worked with us previously, she knew exactly what to expect from our time together.

Baby A. was a great sleeper and BIG sister M. was only 17 months old but made my job look easy photographing them both.

Christmas Tree Mini's|Jacki G. Photography|Richmond, VA | Family&Newborn Photographer

This year there was a little snag in the Christmas Tree farm mini's.  The farm i was going to use decided to close down with out letting anyone know.   Thankfully I called to confirm and found out the farm is not longer available.   This gave me a few days to find another farm.   Mr. Tom at Windy Knoll Tree farm was so nice and his farm was just beautiful.  

We had so much fun with all the families that came out, I think it’s safe to say we will be offering them for many years to come!  Everything was perfect – the weather (BOTH days!). 

Thank you, everyone who came out,  We’ve loved  all the positive feedback we’ve gotten from these mini sessions! We are still getting emails saying how much fun people had, which makes us grin from ear to ear! Truth is, we couldn’t have done it without you guys!  

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, may you enjoy this time with your loved ones, and may y

Pick a prop|Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Newborn & Family Photography

Preparing for your session: 

When planning a session, it helps to pick one main color that will be present in all the shots- then add complementary colors to the images to add a bit of interest and to compliment ( yes, i said complement...not over power) the images (or baby!) as a whole. 

The images below are a few of the props i have available for you to choose from.  I always try and to incorporate a prop into each session.  Take a look below to see the types of buckets, baskets and wreathes available to you during your session.  

Choosing  the color scheme and props involves a little planning and thinking about what the end goal will be.  Did you want a wall display? custom framed prints,  gallery wrapped canvases or an Heirloom album. Whatever your goal may be,  my goal as your photographer is to take the color scheme you would like and make beautiful images for you to display in your home.  

buckets

The wreath can be plane or decorated with flowers to suit your specific session.  The antique suitcase is very nice when posing newborns or older babies.  The curved bench is one of my favorite props to use.  If you wanted a nautical theme i have the boat for you. :) 

I have several baskets,  a curved wicker basket, a flatter longer basket and a brown crate all make for adorable props.  I also have a white birch tree truck for the winter months and a sling for a simple clean fresh in the womb feel.
