studio sessions

"We recently had pictures taken by April. She is fantastic! So easy to work with and really makes everyone feel relaxed. I love every single picture that was taken. The best hands down."

We are so happy to have our own space to create whatever we want! The studio is a dream come true for us, We wanted a place were we could make our clients feel at home and be able to create portraits any way we want! The Studio is also a place to learn and explore new ideas! Located in Mechanicsville, VA (only 5 minutes from our home), we found the perfect space! After Austin remodeled the space, we opened it in March of 2021!

Studio Sessions

Outdoor Sessions

2-3 months is a good amount of time for portrait sessions, but please do not hesitate to inquire about a session sooner than that!


How early should I book my session?

Once we send you your online gallery, you can purchase prints, canvases, books and other items right through your gallery link. All printed items are printed at a professional photography printing lab! We also include a photo release with the photos, so you have the option to download and print your photos where ever you like!



We will give you any helpful tips and inspiration to help you choose the best outfits for you and your family. We also offer a client closet of dresses for the ladies! We are continually adding to our closet!


Do you help with Styling and outfits?

We will travel up to an hour outside of Richmond. We do not typically travel further than an hour for portrait sessions!


DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF the RICHMOND area for portrait sessions?

Once we decide on the date, we will send you over a link to securely pay a retainer fee with the remainder of payment being due about a week before the session!
