Photographer, twin mama, and sushi connoisseur.  I'm so glad you're here, and I hope you'll stick around and enjoy these blog posts!


James Oriel | Gainesville VA | Newborn Lifestyle Photographer

I am a little nostalgic writing sweet Joey’s final blog post, at least its his last one for now! When I am lucky enough to capture my clients memories through their maternity, birth and newborn images I am always looking forward to the next milestone they hit and get a little sad that my time sharing Joey has come to an end, although, his journey is only just beginning! I can’t imagine just how much cuter he is going to get in the coming months!! Here are some of my favorite shots from his newborn session!
