I met up with little Mr. C and his parents Sunday for a little Mother’s Day portrait session. It was a gorgeous morning at the Virginia Tech Duck Pond with a lot of ducks, geese, and baby ducks who were very hungry for the pieces of bread that he had for them to enjoy. He enjoyed feeding them just as much as they enjoyed the bread, especially when the white duck ate a piece of bread right out of his hand! The whole family had amazing coordinated outfits, I loved C’s little blue and yellow plaid shorts.
Meet little Mr. J. I had the honor of photographing him last weekend and he was the most perfect little angel. He didn’t so much as give me a frown while his photo shoot was going on. The only time he made a peep was right before he fell sound asleep on the nice, soft, furry sheep pelt. Check out the album on Facebook for a few photos not included here.
Meet adorable Mr. Baby N at 7 days old, Big Brother B, and their loving parents. Baby N was such a sweetheart, he loved snuggling up in my sheep pelt, it was so cozy. I loved Big Brother N’s red sweather with elbow patches, I have one that’s very similar actually.
Meet Baby J and the rest of his gorgeous little family! Last weekend we fought through the cold and a little bit of rain to take some pictures at the duck pond on the Virginia Tech campus. Even though the weather wasn’t great and little Mr. J had been awakened from a nice car nap to take pictures, he was still in excellent spirits. Being relatively new to the area, it was the familie’s first trip to the duck pond and Baby J was a huge fan. He thought his mom’s homemade cinnamon raisin bread was a little too yummy for ducks and ate some for himself.
Meet baby L, he was fresh from a nap when I arrived to take some photos last weekend and ready to model! I loved his little owl hat from Sew Sweet in Radford, VA. His whole room was owl themed and absolutely adorable with owl pillows, a mural, and a quilt that he loved to touch (take the last photo in this post for example). Sew Sweet also made the blue monster knit hat. I had a great time with baby L and his family, he was so sweet and friendly no matter how many times we changed his clothes and moved him around. There are a couple more photos from my time with baby L over on my Facebook page if you are interested. Don’t forget to “like” my page if you haven’t already!

It was New Years Eve at the Virginia Tech Duck Pond and the wind was blowing, hard. I met up with the Buchanan family for the most super-micro-mini maternity photo session of all time, we were out there for all of about 10 minutes before we couldn’t take the cold any more. Even the nice quilt that they brought along was no match for the wild winds. Thankfully little Mr. Micah was a good sport and let us get a few shots before shouting “COLD!” in protest. The Buchanan’s are expecting their second child (a girl, yay!) in February. You can see a couple more photos from our session on the Holly Cromer Photography Facebook page.

This past Sunday I got together with my long time friend Tiffany [I still have multiple marble composition notebooks full of notes that we wrote each other more than 10 years ago] and the rest of the Carroll family at the Inn at Virginia Tech for some holiday photos. I have a Christmas themed first name, they have a Christmas themed last name, how fun and festive are we? I love to visit the Inn/Skelton Center every holiday season to check out the various trees decorated by local groups. Of course we were especially fond the Virginia Tech Hokies themed tree!
You see that last photo? That’s the face that you get to see when I outrun a feisty little red-head… And I am glad I beat him because the pouting led to a cute picture so Jameson, I’m challenging you to rematch soon! His brother, Dawson looks really happy in the photo above that because he genuinely did beat me so he’s officially challenged to a rematch as well.

Meet the Purcell family! A little fun fact: four years ago, I photographed this family and they were the first family portraits that I ever took! I was so excited when I heard from Laura again, she saw photos that I took of a co-workers’ baby on my Facebook page, Blacksburg is such a small town. It was nice to meet their new baby girl, she was quite fond of my camera. We had planned on doing more photos outdoors, but it was chilly the day before Thanksgiving so we had to make it snappy so the little ones didn’t get cold. Thank you so much Purcell family, it was nice to have a chance to work with you again all these years later!

I met this lovely Blacksburg family on Wednesday for some holiday family portraits. Their son took to me immediately showing off all of he and his sister’s coolest toys. How adorable is this sweet little baby girl? I loved her christening gown, it was so beautiful and over 100 years old! Thank you so much L family for letting me spend the morning before Thanksgiving with you.
Meet the Shepherd family! This is another one of the holiday mini sessions from this weekend taken at Wong Park in Blacksburg. Thankfully things warmed up a little bit for us Saturday afternoon so we were only cold when we hung out in the shade for too long. Little Mr C was quite a character with a multitude of silly faces to share with me. He took charge of our shoot and tried to pick out the very best locations in the park for us to take photos so he could move on to playing on the slide and swings.
