The Daily Davidson Show | Richmond VA Portrait Fredericksburg Family Photographer | Sarah Kane Photography

You may recognize this sweet family from their youtube channel Daily Davidsons. It was an honor and pleasure meeting The Davidson's in person! They are as down-to-earth in real life as they are on their show! Jayden sore throat and all was a real trooper! Little Carter was all smiles and Chance, who reminded me of my oldest son Brennan, really made me work for those smiles. I have to admit though my favorites are when he's playing hard to get ;) I loved meeting this family and if you aren't already a fan you'll become one! Just head over to youtube and subscribe to Daily Davidsons.

The secret to beautiful lifestyle family portraits | Richmond VA Family Portrait Photographer Shortpump VA photographer

Do you want to know the truth about my photography? It’s directly tied into my philosophy on life. Life isn’t perfect. People are not perfect. It’s our imperfections that make us different from everyone else, yet it’s also what makes us the same. It’s our shortcomings that push us to do better. Life would be such a bore if we all lived for perfection. Who would set the standard for perfection anyway?

When I started my journey into building a photography business, going on 5 years now, I could not have predicted that I would be where I am today. All of this would not be possible without those who took a chance and put their faith in me with something as invaluable as their family's memories!  Meet the Farmer's. They took a chance on me when their oldest son was just 6 months old and I was only one year into portfolio building! When Bowen turned 1 they again entrusted me with an important milestone and now 3 years later I am beyond grateful and honored to once again photograph their family and the newest little member! I loved visiting the Farmer's in their new home and playing trains with big brother Bowen! It truly is special for me to get to know so many families and watch their children grow!

What a special session with this wonderful family at Midlothian Mines Park! It was such an honor to photography three generations. These images and memories will be cherished for years and will become even more important with each passing year! 

After the larger family portraits we ventured off for some tunnel fun and bubble love! Nothing brings out personality and love like bubbles! It was so much fun watching this beautiful family share in these moments. It truly makes me so happy to be able to capture this time for them!

The Carillon in Richmond VA located at Byrd Park (near Maymont) is such a beautiful location for a family portrait session. There are so many different scenarios to choose from all packed into one small area. There's the staircase leading up to the tower and all of the details on top which seem to be a favorite with the kids (especially little boys). My favorite spot is the beautiful walkway under a canopy of trees. I always feel like I'm entering some kind of magical forest! It's so beautiful and there is such variety that I've actually never left the Carillon, but one could easily find many other beautiful locations throughout Byrd Park. 

I had such a wonderful time with the Pitera family. Little Arabelle, soon to be two, was so sweet. She gave me quite a workout though, but I was able to capture so many natural moments of her just exploring and being two! Kate, Arabelle's mom, was definitely thinking a head when she brought some vintage props to keep her active little girl in once place. For a few minutes anyway. They added a lot to the session! Kate collects vintage items (a girl after my own heart) and it is so much more meaningful when the props used are things that families love! The best was the vintage croquet set. I absolutely love how those images turned out. Kate definitely did her homework and was on the ball with styling too. At one point Chris, Arabelle's dad, had the croquet mallet resting on his shoulder and I said "oh that looks really cool" in which he replied "Kate told me to do it". I need to bring her on all my sessions! Enjoy!

Another beautiful day in the great Richmond Virginia and another awesome family session at The Carillon at Byrd Park (or as my kids like to call it the castle)! So many really amazing locations in Richmond for photography, I am so thankful that photography has helped me discover all of the  wondrous beauty that Richmond has to offer!

The Spruill family were all as nice as could be!  My job is so rewarding in so many ways. I have met so many wonderful families! Jacob and Sydney were such very sweet and polite kids as well! I learned that Sydney and I share something in common, a love for photography! Turns out she is an aspiring photographer and I look forward to seeing her work very soon! She also had on the most amazing twirly dress that was so cool to photograph. It's actually called a twirly dress too! It was a lot of fun because she was as excited as I was to see all of the pictures as I took them. We decided that one of them reminded us of the prize lamp from A Christmas Story (the clean version of course).  Jacob was also very sweet and into getting cool photos of blowing a handful of wishes, I hope all of his wishes come true!

As always the kids had some very cool ideas and I'm always willing to listen.  Sydney really wanted to have her picture taken climbing a tree, so the entire family was game! Even mom climbed in dress and all! Definitely my kind of family! Tracy and I were both thinking the same thing at first, the family in the tree could either be really cute or end up in an awkward family photo book or website, but my vote is it turned out really cute! Most importantly it was a special memory for the kids!! Thank you Spruill family for making memories with me!
