I love when clients and I are on the same page, and when Mom and I talked before her newborn session, I knew we would be a great fit since she wanted a relaxed photo shoot that captured her family interacting in their own home.

We sure had a brisk morning on the farm last weekend!  The animals didn't seem to mind, but we were all bundled up!  This sweet little girl is getting so big!

I've been hired to photograph her family for a couple of years now, and I love being able to see and capture these little ones as they grow up.  I just love this one of Mom and her girls.  Can't wait to finish up your gallery for you to see them all!

Virginia charm https://www.mollylynchphotography.com/blog/2017/11/virginia-charm I was honored to be asked to photograph this adorable family for yet another fall!  This year took us to historic Virginia, where the setting was lovely despite the chilling temperatures and wind!  These kids were troopers!  Here's a little sneak peek of what I'm working on:

Here's a sneak peek from an in-home newborn/family shoot.

I'm just loving the mama and baby photos lately!  We had to wake up this poor little guy for the photo shoot, and he wasn't sure what to make of the whole thing.  I love this one of him and Mom because they were just having such a happy time together.  As you can see, the whole family shone together, too!  I'm having fun going through all of the images we captured!

Sweet siblings https://www.mollylynchphotography.com/blog/2017/10/sweet-siblings IMG_5951IMG_5951 This sweet family provided a lot of laughs when we spent time together!  I could totally relate with"third-child-syndrome" and needing some photos of that third little one, as my own third child has much less representation on our walls. I tried to sneak in a few extra of their littlest guy!  Just look at that smile!!

Change of Scenery: an in-home lifestyle session https://www.mollylynchphotography.com/blog/2017/9/brother-love 2017Sept10KP-352017Sept10KP-35

As the season changes to fall and the session requests start to increase, most clients have autumn on their mind.  Outdoor photographs with beautiful landscapes are popular, but sometimes the best change of scenery is to have a session at home.  I had so much fun following these two little guys around, and we got some great candid, photo-journalistic, and informally posed shots of them hanging out with Mom and Dad at home.  What mother doesn't want a lovely image like this to remind her of that cozy reading time when the kids were young?  I love shooting sessions at home, as what better place is there for families to document their memories together?  My weekends are filling up, but I do have some availability, so contact me soon if you want to get on my calendar!

Being a hostess and a photographer at the same time is no easy feat (just ask my guests about the burned sweet potato fries...), but I just couldn't help myself and had a blast following this little sweetie around on her adventures.  Hope you and your little firecrackers had a happy 4th, too!

Hi, there! https://www.mollylynchphotography.com/blog/2016/3/hi-there I was honored to be invited back to photograph this family again now that their newest member has arrived, and it was such a joy to spend the morning with this little sweetheart and her adoring (and adorable!) big sister.  Doing the session at home allowed everyone to stay comfortable, and I was able to get some great shots of this family interacting in their own space.  Here is one of my favorites!

Shine On https://www.mollylynchphotography.com/blog/2016/3/shine-on
One of my favorite things about shooting a sessions with seniors is that I get to work with them in the midst of a beautiful life transition.  Senior photography has many possibilities, and I love designing a session to capture the senior's personality.  
This young lady and I had such a fun, laid-back morning together.  She was a superstar!  I hope you are enjoying your final images, and I'm wishing you all the best!

It didn't take me long at my last photo session to realize that this little boy is something special!  Not only can he count and spell his name, but he is a real charmer.  I so enjoyed spending time with him and his family in their beautiful new home as they celebrated his turning two.  Here's a sneak peek of what I captured.  And remember, just because it is too cold to do an early morning outdoor session, winter is the perfect time to cozy up and schedule photo shoot of your family indoors!
