Hi there! I'm Caiti and I am a portrait photographer living in Disputanta, Virginia. I am a music loving, doughtnut eating, coffee drinking, mama of 2. This is the place where you can come to see my latest work with my beautiful clients and learn more about me, my husband, and our sweet babies. Take a look around and enjoy!
Last week, I got to meet a beautiful little girl who was only 5 days new!! Miss Lillian was just so sweet & sleepy. She could not have cared less about us moving her around, wrapping her up, unwrapping her, or anything else. We were laughing at how chill she was!! Having 2 kids of my own, my main advice is to soak that time up because it will change…quickly.
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage! Marc & Laura are good friends of ours and also one of our couples from 2016. We just love these two and loved getting to be their wedding photographers!! When we found out they were pregnant – I screamed!! All of our friends were over the moon excited for them!
What better thing to do on this snowy Wednesday than look at photos of a sleeping newborn? Warning: This post may make you want to curl up on the couch and take a nap. I feel like that almost every time I edit newborn photos. Connor is NO exception!! This sleepy little boy was just perfect for his session, at only 6 days new, and loved being snuggled up tight.
It’s been a few weeks since I did a blog post….that’s “off season” for ya! We have been soaking in lots of family time and loving every minute of it! You know what else I have been loving – baby snuggles!! CGP has had so many newborns the past couple months that I haven’t even had a chance to blog all of them! Waverley was born a couple weeks ago and I fell in love!
I told you that newborns were taking over the blog the next few weeks and I was not lying! Y’all…I am loving all these baby snuggles! This newborn was extra special, too, because I have been photographing the Taylor family for years! You may remember their family session last year involving the chickens? This was their first time doing newborn photos in their home, though, and we had a great time!
I have a beautiful little girl to show y’all today! I think almost all my blog posts for the next 6 weeks will be newborns. Kidding….kind of. There are a lot of babies that have been born or are about to be born soon who need to grace the pages of the CGP blog. I am SO excited about this, though, because it means I get alllll the baby snuggles. Could I ask for a better job?!
You all are in for a treat with this session! I love newborns – no secret there! I love getting to snuggle these little angels. There is something about a home session that makes it even more cozy. Babies love it, too! There is less movement and they are definitely “messed with” less. Plus, there are more cuddles with home sessions (at least, that is my experience). Elizabeth’s session was no different!
I was so excited to meet Ashley & Jake! Meeting new clients, especially right after they become new parents, is so fun because they have just entered in to a WHOLE new world!! I am so lucky to also be a mommy so I feel very fortunate to be able to relate to them on so many levels. Whether that is the lack of sleep or the nursing struggles….it could be the fact that putting on makeup feels like a miracle…or even that walking around is insanely painful! But also, the feeling you get seeing the life you helped create. Looking at this beautiful little human sleeping, while sitting in the nursery you worked so hard to put together. At every session, I can see in the parents eyes how overwhelmed they are with LOVE for their child and I feel so fortunate to capture it.
These past couple of weeks have been so busy around here! Between newborns sessions, family sessions, engagements sessions, and weddings….I did not keep up with blogging all of them! I do not guarantee to blog every single session because sometimes there just is not enough time. However, I definitely want to do my best!
Camden was greeted by a lot of people who just could not wait to meet him! Brittany and Josh have so many amazing family members and friends who are ready to love and spoil this beautiful baby boy. I truly love seeing people welcome new baby’s into their lives, especially when it is their first child. I wanted to cry just seeing Brittany hold little Camden!! We talked so much about how excited and emotional she was about meeting him! I couldn’t wait to get over to their house to meet him for myself!
