Look who's ONE| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA| Family & Newborn Photographer

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.

Birth Photography| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photography

I first met Meg at Panera to discuss my idea of birth photography and newborn photography . We hit it off and she signed the contract right there. We chatted via email a few times and discussed the type of birth photography she envisioned. Meg was scheduled to be induced on the 10th of April. So, being on call was much easier since I knew what day I would be photographing her birth. She was admitted into the hospital around 7 a.m., she was 4 cm. and they broke her water. I figured since it was a induction this would take a while even though this was her second pregnancy. Needless to say she was a rock star and delivered her baby only 3.5 hrs after being admitted into the hospital. I can share a few great images from the birth.

I look forward to photographing little W. next week for his posed newborn photography session.

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

This little sleeping beauty is Veronica and she is brand new around here!  She was such a great sleeper for her session and then when it came time to take the last few photos, she woke up but gave me the sweetest smile.  Her doggy brother was so sweet with her.

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

Welcome to the world S.  a week old ,  this little guy was so cute for his session.  I just love all these soft tones making a very natural and organic look in newborn photography,  the more simple the better for me.   Here are some highlights from his newborn session.   Big brother wasn't too thrilled to hold baby brother but we did get a few shots together.

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

I loved the simplicity in this maternity session.  Natural maternity photography is my favorite,  you really don't need to dress up the beauty of pregnancy portraits!  I've been so fortunate to have such great clients who I am able to follow as their family grows.  I first met this mama about five years ago for her maternity session with baby #1.  For her first maternity session we went outdoors for a nature setting at University of Richmond,   this time with baby #3 we decided to travel to Carytown for something a little different.

I still find it mind blowing when I look at all these beautiful babies from last year! 2017 was an amazing year for me and I got to meet so many amazing families and hear their stories. 

So last year I photographed over  65 newborn babies…..65…..wow….I can’t believe it was that many! So many have been back already for their 6-8 month sitter sessions and so many booked in this year! I can’t wait to se everyone again. Newborn Photography is a passion that doesn’t fade with me. I find newborn babies so wonderful and mesmerising! They are each so different and it’s mind boggling that at sometimes just seven days old you can see their personalities emerging!

So here is to another busy year with my newborns – can’t wait to meet you all:)

 

Fresh48 & Newborn Session| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA| Family & Newborn Photographer

I met the cutest baby boy with the sweetest parents a few weeks ago.   Sweet baby W.  was born right after Thanksgiving.  I arrived at the hospital for his fresh 48 session.  When i walked in the room i was not only greeted by his elated parents but also members of his very proud extended family.   I loved  getting to meet so many of  the people that love him so much all at once. 

Then a few days after his Fresh 48 session,  I photographed his newborn session at his home which is very convenient for his family so they don't have to leave their house.    He was just the perfect model for his newborn session.

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
