Where do I even begin with this session? Basically, it was a dream.

Newborns have a very, very special place in my heart. Lifestyle sessions are also some of my favorites, so this session was just the BEST.

As if a precious newborn lifestyle session wasn’t enough to make me go bananas, mom Kim is STUNNING. So, so gorgeous. I seriously could not take a bad photo of her, AND she is so incredibly nice. She made me lunch while I was in their home and was so helpful. Kim is also a local photographer so I was honored to take these photos for her!

We started outdoors since the light was so soft and beautiful that morning. Then, went in for some lifestyle shots and solo images of baby Henry. This session was right around 4 hours long, which many people don’t realize is pretty typical for newborn sessions. I like to really take my time, make sure there are plenty of breaks for feedings – which Baby Henry definitely needed. He ate about every 30 minutes to an hour (poor mama!).

Kim rented an AMAZING dress from Rent the Runway, and after the lifestyle portion of the session was finished, she was able to change back into comfy clothes and kick back and relax.

I adore these kinds of sessions and I hope there are many, many more like it to come!

Tips for Your Session at Arrington Vineyards

There are lots of swings in the vineyards which make for a great photo opportunity or a place to just relax and enjoy the view. There are lots of swings in the vineyards which make for a great photo opportunity or a place to just relax and enjoy the view.

Bring your Walking Shoes

The varied landscape at Arrington is a great spot for all kind of photo sessions. The varied landscape at Arrington is a great spot for all kind of photo sessions.

Arrington Vineyards is on a big hill and it is quite a trek getting to the top, especially if you are in nice clothes. Try to park as close to the area you will be shooting at as you can and save yourself the hike, and if you will be wearing dress shoes, wait to change into them until you get to your destination.

I have made the mistake of not bringing water a few times, so learn from me and bring some! Thankfully, the gift shop does sell bottled water if you happen to forget (and obviously, wine too).

Arrington Vineyards has some awesome events on the weekends and they draw big crowds. You should absolutely check them out sometime, but for photo sessions, stick to times of the week when the Vineyards aren’t as crowded.
