The Charlottesville area is blessed with an abundance of talented photographers and Kerry of EarthDarling Portraits is definitely one of them. We met for coffee when I first moved to Charlottesville last year and was seeking out others in the industry. She was nothing but kind and supportive, and as a working mom who's been providing beautiful work to the community for years, she was also a great inspiration as I began to launch the Firefly brand. That's one thing I love about being a photographer-- there's an incredible community of support and camaraderie for creatives that encourages one another over competition. 

I was honored when Kerry approached me to swap sessions (another bonus of being a photographer!). As photographers, it's ironic that we're some of the worst when it comes to getting in front of the camera and Kerry's family had never had professional photos taken of everyone together! Of course, her kids are adorable and no strangers to the camera so I knew this session would be a blast. 

Their wardrobe was spot on thanks to Kerry's great eye for style and the kids' excitement for some fun hats! We met one evening in Downtown Charlottesville for an urban, casual shoot that ended up including lots of exploring, tickling, and group hugs. In my opinion, that's the very best kind of shoot :-) 

Abbey Road anyone!?
