schroeder family | blacksburg, va lifestyle session


Y’all, I just adore this little family!  And I’m so honored that I was able to photograph a newborn session for them last year and now a family session (with a few one-year photos of miss Avery!) this year.  I know I say this all the time, but it truly is such a joy for me to capture many different seasons of life for the same couple or family.  It’s how my clients turn into friends, and that’s one of the sweetest perks of this job.  😉

Daniel and Monica went from being high school sweethearts to husband and wife, and then they became a family when miss Avery Claire arrived last November.  It’s always so sweet to watch a mom and dad interact with their littles, and work together as a team to make sure everyone is taken care of.  Monica is one of those amazing mamas who manages to think of everything (like making adorable onesies with the word “one” on the front in sparkly gold script!) and Daniel is always ready and willing to do whatever he can to make the most of their session (like pushing the stroller loaded with #allthethings up and down a million hills! haha!) and the results are always SO worth it – as you’re about to see for yourself!  Enjoy my favorites from the Schroeder family’s session at Heritage Park in Blacksburg!


Seriously, how adorable is Avery’s outfit?!


Do you see what I mean when I say Monica has thought of everything?  Down to the confetti balloons that coordinated with Avery’s birthday outfit!!!


Then we switched things up and took advantage of the gorgeous mountain views that Heritage Park has to offer!


Y’all, this next image.  I’m a little obsessed with it.  Monica, you are gorgeous, and I love this sweet moment with your baby girl!


LOVE this romantic moment!


I couldn’t resist including this shot on the right … because sometimes this is real life with a one-year-old, am I right?!  (In Avery’s defense, this was the only breakdown she had and I’m pretty sure she recovered in about 30 seconds!  haha!)


Another super sweet shot of these two … <3


And I’ve saved one of my favorites for last – I love how natural and joyful this little moment feels!


Monica, Daniel, thank you again for trusting me with these moments.  I hope y’all love these images as much as I do and that they always remind you of the sweetest parts of this season in your lives!

Big hugs to all three of you!!
