Capturing all your important life moments.

There are so many occasions that deserve a photo sesh! But a family session is number one on my list! Our families grow and change so quickly! Six months from now you will have different children. Your toddler may not be snuggling you like before, your older child may decide they don't like holding your hand, and the baby has lost their baby chunk! Capturing these moments as a family and the memories they hold is priceless. Family photos are the one investment you will never regret.

Other important occasions that deserve photos:

maternity, newborn, milestones, parties, graduations and anniversaries!

The process


Let's Chat!

Let's talk all the details! What is your session for? What type of location would you like? I can provide recommendations and will send you a session guide to help with outfit selection (or just text me if you can't decide!). I will send you a custom booking page for you to quickly and easily secure your date!

2. Session Day

I cannot wait to meet you and everyone else who will be joining the session! We will chat, I'll let you know that this is a low stress event, all you have to do is smile and have a good time--I'll worry about where you put your hands  and what the kids are doing. I love to capture a cute pose and all the smiles in between.


they're here!

Eeeeek! Within two weeks you will have your images delivered straight to your email! From there you will find a curated gallery of all the best moments from your session. They will be edited in my style and ready for you to choose your favorites.  You have immediate access to download!

Kind Words

The Myers Family

Vanessa is a dream to work with. She captures all of the picture perfect photos as well as the natural organic moments in between. I cherish all of the photos she has taken of my family.

What kind of photographer are you?

I consider my work to be organic as I try to capture the most candid moments of your session. I will not try to make you look perfect, stiff, or unnatural rather I will give you direction and capture the moments that happen from there.

Where will my session be held?

I am a natural light, on location photographer. Together we will choose the best location for your session.

What if it rains?

If the weather is less than ideal on the day of your session, you will be able to reschedule. We will work together to select a new date and time. All fees and payments will be applied to the newly scheduled session.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm based out of Richmond, VA. I will travel within 30 miles of the 23832 zip code. For any locations outside of that will be a $0.50 per mile charge.

When will we get our photos?

Your will receive a link to your personal online password-protected gallery within 2 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season). You can download all the photos directly from the gallery!
