The Yearick Siblings | Maymont Park, Richmond, Virginia Family Photographer

Living eight hours away, it’s rare that I get to photograph friends from high school; but lucky for me, Jonah + Kelly live just an hour away in Richmond!  Chelsea, Jonah, and I were all 2 years apart in school and spent many a band trip together!  Jonah, Kelly, and I were also all three Math Club Presidents on different years.  So when his siblings and their families came to visit this time, Chelsea contacted me about putting together a photo session as a present for their parents 34th anniversary.  This is the second time we’ve done this, and although it was almost 90 degrees, it was actually cooler than last time!  We have a way of picking the hottest days of the year.  🙂

We had a great spot picked out by the river for photos– a place I’d been wanting to photograph for awhile!  But when I arrived early that morning to scope it out, there was major construction going on.  As in… if we photographed there, we might have a block of concrete hit us in the head!  So we switched the session to Maymont Park, a tried and true spot for photos!  We spent most of our time in the Japanese Gardens, which are gorgeous!

It’s always nerve-wracking to photograph a fellow photographer (Cheslea’s husband, Woody, is a fantastic photographer!), but everyone was so easy going and wonderful to work with; they made my job easy!  Thank you guys for a fantastic session!

And because it’s fun, I thought I’d include one from last time– four years ago!
