 Images that show emotion make the best black and white images! Although I delivered both color and black and white to this sweet family I really love how these look with the color is striped away leaving us with pure raw moments! This little guy sure did keep me on my toes and I absolutely love how they turned out!

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?

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!

Family Portraits at Sunday Park | Sarah Kane Photography

What a huge convenience living so close to the very beautiful Brandermill's Sunday Park in Midlothian VA. Another amazing spot for family portraits! The best time to visit Sunday park is about an hour before sunset.  The sun setting over the reservoir is truly breathtaking!  I am so thankful to live in this community.  Every time I drive home I feel like I'm escaping into a resort far from the rest of the world!

The sunset was not a disappointment for Charles's birthday photo shoot and  the sky was on fire as were Charles and his little brother Edward! Are they not the most adorable duo ever? Their mom Jess has such a unique style and fashion sense. Charles and Edward were definitely dressed to impress. I loved everything about their outfits!  A great touch with the red and yellow streaming scarves that flowed as they ran along the shore line,  just perfect!

Another fabulous family photography portrait session with the Larson family in the great Richmond VA. A city which I have grown to love since we moved here 6 years ago! This family is very special to me because they were among one of my very first "real" clients back when I was Dia Marie Photography and they've stuck with as I grew and evolved into Sarah Kane Photography. I photographed their oldest son Jaden when he turned 1-years-old, I took maternity photos of Nikki when she was pregnant with baby Alex and have taken family pictures for them every year since.  It really is a special thing to be able to watch a family grow! I l love seeing how the kids change and grow into their own little personalities. Jaden and Alex are doing just that! 

I'm a huge fan of lifestyle photography, which is when the focus is more on candid moments rather than posed pictures. The Larson's are also fans of this style of photography, so I am even more excited when I get to photograph them! Jaden wasn't very happy when we first started on this particular day, which was unusual because normally he warms up to me very quickly. We tried everything, but none of our shenanigans were working.  There was only one thing that was going to make this little guy happy and that was the playground. He spotted it and couldn't get to it fast enough. I'm so glad he did because it allowed me to capture genuine happiness on both Jaden and Alex's faces! In my opinion there is no greater thing than seeing your children filled with happiness, laughter, and pure joy! The fact that I am able to capture these moments for families is just one of the many reasons why I love being a photographer!! I used to call it my job, but it really doesn't feel like a job (well maybe when I am up until 2am editing it starts to feel like a job) but just a little ;) Sometimes I still can't believe that this is my life. I am grateful every day to all of those who have made this possible and the Larson's are just one of many!

There are so many things I love about being a photographer and I feel so fortunate to be able to do this full time. One of the things that I love so much about photography is the ability to freeze time. My camera is to me what Thor's hammer is to him. It is my superpower. I am able to take a moment that otherwise would have been lost and preserve it for a lifetime.  I only have seconds to grab those moments because in a blink of an eye they are gone forever.  When I became a mother is when I heard the calling. I was desperate to hold on to every little moment because before you know it that little baby you held through the night is heading off to kindergarten. I needed to  stop time and the only way to do it was through my lens. 

I was so excited to photograph the Phipp's newest addition to their family. I had the honor of photographing Melanie during her first pregnancy and then photographing sweet Natalie when she was born. It was such a thrill to be able to now photograph Natalie as a new big sister and what an awesome big sister she is to Charlotte! 

There is no greater thing on earth than the love and strength of a family. Melanie & Derek have the sweetest little family! Natalie & Charlotte are so lucky to have such loving and fun parents. I'm so grateful that I was invited into their home and allowed to share some moments of their life, welcoming baby Charlotte to the family, with all of you!

I chose to publish this session in mostly black & white because black & white make me feel the moment so much more! 

Most important rule when visiting a brand new big sister spend some time with her first!

You just can't get pictures like these in a studio!
