Norfolk Beach Session

Family beach photos jessica jeremiah photograph

This beautiful Norfolk beach session is one of my all time favorites! Dreamy light + soft colors make it beautiful, but it’s extra special because I’ve known this mama for almost 10 years! I’ve been documenting her family since the little blondie was a newborn, and I photographed the littlest dude’s birth!

Tai is one of the most amazing moms I know, and she is in the midst of a challenging season. A motherhood photo session is such a special reminder of how strong + blessed she is.

East Beach Photographer | Knapp Family Portraits

One of the biggest things I missed about Virginia when we moved was the beach! Specifically, I love beach photo sessions at East Beach! The colors, textures + movement combine to make for such joyful images.

When I arrived at Each Beach for this sweet family’s portraits, I realized that most of my sessions here have been in the fall. The light is completely different! In the past, the sun has set behind the houses + dunes, filtering the harsh light. But in summer? FULL ON SUN! Also? So many people celebrating Father’s Day on the beach!

I arrived early, as always, to scope out the situation. I quickly realized that with the bright sun + crowds, I’d have to find somewhere else to start!

Thankfully, East Beach is just darling, with charming homes + beautiful landscape! The sun was just peeking through these established oak trees, and I love how the rich, warm tones compliment their outfits.

Isn’t this family just precious? I first photographed Sindy when she had her very first baby bump, and it’s so amazing to see how her family has grown. It’s so special when clients become friends.  Sindy is my favorite sourdough baking, garden growing, kombucha fermenting fellow crunchy mama.

This is our 7th session together, and I love how my photography skills have grown along with their family. I always love collaborating with Sindy on the vision for each session, and that they are drawn to images of natural, joyful connection. When you have multiple young kids, everything is just less stressful when the expectation for perfectly smiling, looking at the camera little ones is relaxed. I adore images with movement- twirling, running, hugging. Isn’t that what childhood is all about? Kids are energetic + joyful,  and everyone is happier when they aren’t forced to sit still + say cheese.

Aren’t these beautiful pastel tones just beautiful? I am so happy to be back in Virginia, near the water! The sea grasses + golden sun are my favorite!

I had such a hard time narrowing down their images, because they were all just beautiful!

I am so excited that this family is getting an album, so that these beautiful images won’t just live on their hard drive! I adore creating heirloom pieces that will bring so much joy for years to come! Babies don’t keep, and these are the moments you want to remember.

Chesapeake Family Photographer | Myers Newborn

I was a little nervous about starting my business over when we moved back to Virginia, but our neighborhood has been such a blessing! I’ve love meeting each new family, and having so many of them become both friends + clients is so fun!

I was so excited to finally connect with Sarah + Josh – Not only do they live a few blocks down,  Josh’s parents live right next door! We randomly met at the park one day + haven’t looked back since!

Sarah has become my gardening friend, and it’s so fun to have someone to learn + celebrate with. No one else was as excited for that first tiny tomato sprout! She is the absolutely sweetest, and always popping over to drop off a new fertilizer, pea trellis, or bunny fence!

It was such a joy to photograph sweet Annalise’s newborn days. She was such a precious, sleepy baby, and made my job so easy! Isn’t it so crazy how much Annalise resembles mom, and big sister Abigail is her dad’s twin? One of my favorite things about this beautiful family is how excited + involved Josh was. So many times, dads are just taking photos to make their wives happy. But Josh? Sarah says he’s the memory keeper of the family. What a sweet, sweet thing to have a dad who cares so much about preserving these precious, fleeting moments. As a newborn photographer, it doesn’t get any better!

I have such a soft spot for sisters, and I can’t wait to watch these two grow up together. Abigail is just a few months younger than Everly. It’s so crazy for me to imagine her as a big sister, since there are 7 years between my girls. Sending all my patience + coffee to Sarah + Josh, and any other parents of two in diapers!

You can forward this post to your husband, and I can coordinate with him to surprise you! Shh…A Kendra Scott necklace, a JJP Gift Certificate + some other of my favorite goodies might be involved!

I’ll make it easy on Dad to give you something extra special, and easy for you to feel beautiful after weeks in yoga pants + messy bun! We can choose a date later, so no stress about that! For your session, you’ll get to shop all the stunning new dresses in my Client Closet + have the option of adding hair + make up to really be pampered!

Wilson Family | Spring Blossoms

Would you believe that everything about this session came together in the matter of a few days? Claire and I were hanging out in our cul-de-sac watching our crazy kids last weekend, and she mentioned that she had been meaning to schedule family photos! Of course, I immediately got excited because her kids are SO sweet and full of personality (and stinkin’ adorable, too!), and I knew we would have the most fun!

I was coming home from a rare solo Target trip the next day when I caught a glimpse of the most gorgeous white trees from the interstate. You better believe I exited like a race car driver in my Volvo, and used my photographer sixth sense to find them. When I pulled up to a field lined with three gigantic trees in full bloom,  I literally sat in my car with my mouth open, feeling like I just hit the jackpot! Ya’ll, the way the soft, golden rays filter through the blossoms & create the most beautiful glow is totally the photographer version of winning the Powerball!

Thankfully, Claire was onboard with a last minute location change, and we started finalizing outfits! This is often the most stressful part of getting ready for a portrait session, but with my awesome Style Guide & membership to Style & Select putting together outfits that coordinate but aren’t too matchy is so easy! Claire had chosen a beautiful dress, but mentioned she wished she had a pink chiffon skirt to complement the dreamy blossoms.  Thankfully, I have one in my Client Closet & popped over to let her try it on. On a whim, I also brought a pink tulle skirt that was my very first purchase for my  collection.  It took two years of waiting for just the right person to wear it! (Claire’s IG handle is “pinkclairebear” and the woman wears dresses to bike ride around the neighborhood…so clearly it was made for her!)

It ended up being absolutely perfect for their session, and their canvases will look so gorgeous in their light & airy home. It’s so important to consider your home decor when choosing a location & wardrobe for your portraits. That way, your printed artwork will blend in seamlessly!

I absolutely loved working with this precious family- Sam Harris kept me giggling, and the photo of Charlotte & her mama under the tree just makes me swoon. Also, can you believe SY & Claire hadn’t had a professional photo of them taken since their wedding 7 years ago? Even though most sessions usually focus on the family & kids, I love pulling Mom & Dad away for a second.  Most parents rarely have photos of just the two of them, but it’s so important! I can’t wait to see their gorgeous artwork up on their walls! PS. How sweet are those high fives after a fun session?
