Teddy is 6 months old| Jacki G. Photography| Family & Newborn Photographer| Richmond, VA

Teddy has grown so much since his newborn session. HIs Big brother, Andrew was such a great helper during our session.  He helped make Teddy smile and was such a good listener.  I love newborn sessions. I love baby sessions, but what I really love is the privilege of watching them grow up in front of my lens. These boys. This family. I adore them

What to wear tips| Jacki G. Photography| Family & Newborn Photography| Richmond, VA

So you’ve booked a session with me. Now the fun part… planning what to wear! Here are four of my favorite “what to wear” tips for you and your family.
  •  Gone are the days where everyone wears a white shirt with blue jeans for family pictures. Instead, coordinate around a general color scheme of 3-4 colors, and then mix and match with different types of fabric, prints, solids, and/or accent colors. 
  • Accessorize and layer (think scarves, shirts, cute jackets, cardigans, vests, boots and jewelry!) Accessories and layers add interest and depth to photographs. 
  • I always suggest for moms to start with their outfit first. Find something that looks and feels great on YOU, moms! Then have your kids or husband snap a quick cell phone picture of you in your outfit. Do you still love the outfit? Perfect! Next up: build the rest of the family’s outfits around yours… (I usually start with finding something for the kids in the family and then find something for the hubs last).
  •  Don’t forget the shoes! I’m guilty of this one — especially for my own kids! My son wears bright blue high top tennis shoes. not something I exactly want in my family photos, right? Shoes don’t have to be fancy, just something a little nicer than bright blue tennis shoes. 
  • And lastly, please feel free to email or text me if you are looking for suggestions or are having a hard time deciding between a couple outfits! That’s what I am here for and is definitely part of custom photography experience if needed!

I've been photographing this adorable family for a few years now and i look forward to it each time.  I & N. remind me so much of my own children,  the wild and carefree ages and stages of young children.  They are playful and the perfect amount of charming and rambunctious- and we just enjoy them so much. I can't wait to meet their little sister in a few months.  
We had so much fun at Tuckahoe Plantation,  the early morning fog was just starting to lift.  I just love photographing here as this location is perfect venue for family sessions. 







Little R. turned 2 yrs old| Jacki G. Photography| Meadow Farm| Family & Newborn Photographer| Richmond, VA

You know that poem that describes girls as sugar and spice, and boys as snails and puppy dog tails?  R. is aaaalllll boy!!  His session was so much fun- he was full of personality.  With fists full of cars and dirty feet from running and playing, it was exactly the way a 2 yr old boys session should go.  We had a blast.  He was fun, energetic and perfectly two!

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




















Newborn Jaxon was a fabulous model.  He loved being cuddled by his older brother and parents.  Jaxon's Mom loves bears and so i incorporated a tiny bear and a bear rug she had in the nursery. I hope you enjoy this beautiful session. It really was a fun one for me!
