LIFESTYLE : Mike & Sam + One Vibrant Little Human || Richmond, VA


Another passion of mine - what can I say, I'm a multi-passionate creative - is the occasional lifestyle session with an expecting or newly-established families. The changes that come with bringing a little one into the world are both terrifying and exhilarating. And it's a joy to capture those emotions. 

Adalyn Rey is the sweetest little human ever. She's full of personality, expressions, and brings new kind of vibrancy to life around her. I was there when that sheepish grin escaped Sam the night Mike shared their happy news. Knowing their personal testimonies of surviving brain tumors & long distance dating, changes the perspective of what would seem "normal," in starting a family to most of us, to something much more meaningful for these two. Here's a few favorites from their session....

Ugh. So precious!

Congratulations Mike & Sam! You're already wonderful parents and I know that Adalyn Rey is already beyond blessed to have you two as Mom & Dad. Can't wait to watch her grow!

Isn't she beautiful? Leave some love for these new parents in the comments!
