Grow with me| Jacki G. Photography| Newborn & Family Photography| Richmond, VA

A.. is ONE yr old!! ! The last time I saw this little guy was for his newborn session, and look how he's grown! He still has that same precious smile. He was a little shy at first but soon opened up and gave me some great smiles.

The weather was just perfect on Libby hill for his ONE year session. We had to reschedule the shoot a few times due to rain so it was a pleasant surprise that the weather cooperated.

Meet Asa, This little guy was just so calm for his almost newborn session . He was 1 month old and just so adorable. He loved to be swaddled and fell asleep but once the swaddle came off he was awake again but just looking around. I did get a few images of him sound asleep. What a handsome little man with that full head of hair! Enjoy!

National Rainbow Baby Day| Richmond, VA| Family & Newborn Photographer| Jacki G. Photography

Happy National Rainbow Baby Day! If you're not familiar with the term, a "rainbow baby" is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth or the passing away of an infant. These babies signify hope and healing after a loss and for many parents, these babies are "the rainbow after the storm"

I haven't shared the story of my stillbirth publicly but it was a devastating and deeply profound loss. When I found out I was pregnant again I was absolutely terrified but my little Noah arrived safe and sound and has changed my life in the most incredible ways. I will never forget ^Gavin^ my baby that came before him but for me Noah is definitely a beautiful , beaming rainbow of light.

There is still a lot of stigma around miscarriage and stillbirth so I believe it's important that we share our stories in hopes of showing other parents who are grieving that they are not alone and that there is hope. Sending love and light to all of you Mamas and Daddies out there still waiting for their own rainbow baby to arrive. but for me Noah is definitely a beautiful beaming rainbow of light.

I have attached a few examples of the rainbow babies I have photographed.

Can you believe that the holidays are almost here? Where did this year go? Jacki G. Photography will be hosting Santa Mini sessions this fall! If you’re looking for an easy going, line-free Santa portrait, these Santa mini-sessions are for you! I’m all about making things easy for my families! I know how hard it can be to get out to the mall and wait and line. Let’s take that stress out of your Santa portraits this year and have them done with as much fun as possible!

 

The 2019 Santa Mini Session Details

Santa will be coming to my studio on Sunday November 17th.  Santa Mini Sessions will be held from 10am-12pm. Each family (kids only) will have 10 minutes with Santa. He will have a book to read, and can sneak up behind kids who aren’t so sure! One of my favorite things is the moment they first notice Santa! It can be excitement or tears, you just never know!  I will do my best to try to capture smiles and the tears that are so typical of Santa pictures and toddlers!

Your Santa session will come with 5 high resolution digital images and the option to purchase additional files when you receive your gallery.

Newborns, Special Needs, & Santa

I have reserved the first few sessions for newborns and children with special needs who may thrive with a bit fewer people around. If you fit in this category, please contact me.

Price: $140 for 15 min and you get 5 digital downloads

Deposit: $70. A deposit is due at the time of booking to hold your spot.

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

I couldn’t wait to share this session! Sweet little A. was born last month but I know the wait was worth to finally share her images. Many parents worry if their baby is not within the recommended 2 weeks for their newborn portraits but as you can see, older babies do an awesome job and we get gorgeous images. Little A slept through her whole session and was even more settled than most of the littles that I photograph. I loved the girlie headbands and delicate wraps we used. I photograph a lot of boys (and I’m a mom of two little guys plus an almost 18 yr old daughter ) so when I get to capture a little baby girl, I get extra excited.. feels like it’s playing dress up. Below are some favorites from A session..

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

I had such a great time photographing this handsome baby boy! Little L. was 3 months old but his adjusted age was 1.5 months due to early delivery at 34 wks. He was such a flirt and smiled so much. He did fall asleep near the end.

I truly love capturing these moments for you and I am always humbled and honored when you choose me to take pictures of your family. Whether it’s savoring the memory of your bump, your first newborn, your toddlers first steps or your growing family….I love it all!  

I hope to hear from you!

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

Meet newborn Kerrigan. He is a beautiful little guy and slept like a champ for his newborn session. He made the cutest little faces while he slept!   We used a new blue backdrop and wire bed for his 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.

Welcome to the world C.| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photography| Jacki G. Photography

Making her big debut on the blog today is precious newborn baby Cecilia photographed by yours truly, ) She is the sweetest little baby and really melted my heart during the entire session.  Her big brother did amazing with her who I also got to photograph when he was a newborn too, so it was great to see him now playing the role of big brother!  Big Brother was super excited to hold his new baby sister and have his picture taken as well.  I wouldn’t be surprised if baby Cecilia grows up to be a model- she just looked so cute in everything we put her in and every pose we placed her in.

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

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

This handsome little fella took a couple minutes to warm up to the cake smashing, but once he figured out it was fun he definitely gave us some great smiles!  I have been photographing this guy from birth so I know that once he smiles they are camera worthy and oh so adorable!

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

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 :)
