Sessions like this give me so much life! This group of siblings drove an hour to get their first ever professional photos done with me in Richmond. When they first arrived at the location, they were a little quiet and really cold. It wasn’t the warmest day and it was pretty breezy, but at least the sun was shining! Within minutes of taking these photos, they began warming to the camera and started having fun together! You can see and feel SO much love, care, and joy in every image of this session. This group of five sisters and a little brother obviously love each other with every ounce of their being. They made my job easy and we had the best time. My favorites are definitely the group hug in the grass with everyone laughing- it gives me all the feels! The littlest one is literally the cutest and these girls are stunning!! Nothing is better than a family who truly loves each other and enjoys being with one another. I just love this group of sweet and beautiful people, I will never forget this session!
AUNT REMY HAS NEVER BEEN SO EXCITED! I’m going to have a niece soon!!!
I seriously can’t wait to spoil this little girl with every sparkly, pink, pretty thing I can find! 🙂 My sister-in-law, Christielee, is literally the most amazing mother and I am so thankful I can learn allllll the things from her before Eli and I start a family. My brother, Dyan, is such a fun-loving, sweet Dad. He works so hard to support his family and it’s incredible to watch. I admire these two more than they know and I love this family so much that I could cry thinking about it! I mean, just look at my nephew… he’s the cutest kid I’ve ever freakin’ seen!!! Wait until you see those photos at the end!!
The Biase family is growing and growing and I’m loving every minute of it. I can’t wait to meet this cutie baby girl in December! Taking photos for family members is one of my favorite things and I’m so happy they asked me to do this maternity shoot. This baby is going to be welcomed into the world with a beautiful, loving family and a big fat camera in her face! 🙂 Being an Aunt is such a blessing. <3
This family is so sweet and adorable- I can’t stand it!! I met Sara and Brian a while back through my brother and sister-in-law. I was so excited when Sarah asked me to take her maternity pictures! She is one STUNNING mama and she is glowing in these photos! I’m so happy she decided to bring her husband and son along for some family shots because they are TOO CUTE!!!!
Maternity sessions are one of my favorites because it’s such a special experience that only happens once with that child. There is something so beautiful about the look on a mother and father’s face when looking down with their hands wrapped around the baby bump. I can just tell exactly what they’re thinking in these moments… it warms my heart to feel all that love while freezing that moment in time and being able to deliver a gallery like this.
I’m so excited to start this new journey so that I can really begin growing this passion and business of mine! Normally I would think to myself, “nobody actually cares what I have to say..nobody is going to read it..most people will just laugh at me..nobody takes me seriously..” But now, I’m saying “GOODBYE negative thoughts, GOODBYE fear, and HELLO to an encouraged, inspired, first-time blogger, Remy!”
Name Rant: Yes, my name is Remy and no, I’m not a dog. I swear, I have met ONE human (a boy) and 10 dogs named Remy. This can get pretty weird when the dog isn’t behaving and the owner is yelling at it… No, Remy isn’t short for Remmington. Yes, I despise the movie “Ratatouille” because the rat’s name is Remy and now every time someone hears my name they think of a rat…that’s awesome. Also, the famous lines I have always gotten when I introduce myself: “ohhh, like Remy Ma?”…”ohhh, like Remy Martin?” Yep, you got it! 🙂 But anyway, I just wanted to get the name questions out of the way. Now for the real introduction!

I am a Portrait Photographer currently located in North Carolina, yet always willing, and even hoping, to travel! I grew up just south of Richmond, VA, graduated from East Carolina University in 2014, and found love on Hatteras Island, NC (that’s a whole other blog post). My best friend and fiancé is a super cool, part hippie, dread-head, surfer, musician, fire-spinner, who can-basically-do-everything, and he’s kind of my total opposite (and I love him for that).
I’m an obsessed Aunt to the cutest nephew on the planet! I’m inspired by my crazy, New York, Italian family, who I love to death and miss 24/7, even though they live 3 hours away (that’s sad). I most definitely have an obsession with pink. I mean.. you know you have an obsession when you are separating your laundry and realize you have an entire pile for just the pink clothes and then still believe you don’t have enough pink in your life.. I LOVE pink. It’s just so pretty and girly and fun!!! 🙂 Other things I really love: white chocolate mochas, vanilla chai, flowers, candles, LOTS of pizza (I mean like, a LOT of pizza), sunsets, and adventure. Oh, and I can’t forget my sweet pup, Behr. He sleeps all day, every day and I love his cute cuddles more than anything!

I’d also like to share that I cry at just about every movie because, well, I’m emotional. The Biase’s are an emotional bunch. I wouldn’t have it any other way. My parents are amazing and taught me how to use my emotions in the best ways. This is where it gets juicy… Being emotional is what makes me care a weird amount for just about every person that comes into my life. I care a lot, I pour my heart into everything I do, and I love to love. Love is what we LIVE for. Some may not think so, but I do. Love is to give, to sacrifice, to serve. Love is real and raw. Love is what we share with friends, family, co-workers, strangers, and yourself. Love is what this world thrives off of! Love is everything. And that’s why I was called to study hospitality management in college. Hospitality is practicing friendliness, kindness, welcoming, and serving. No, I’m not always the perfect example of hospitality, I constantly face lessons that humble me; but my heart is in this industry and I want to use it to spread love and light to the world. Ultimately, I feel that light shining through the most when I am celebrating with my clients during a session.
I believe in celebrating each milestone in this wild life. I find passion in sharing your love story, popping the champagne because you’re graduating, showing off your first baby bump, and remembering each minute of every special moment.
I think you probably know me a little too well by now, and that’s fine with me! I can’t wait to begin this blogging journey with a fresh post each week…I already have so many ideas that my head could explode! Expect a little bit of every topic of my life and an inside look into all my portrait sessions coming up. I’m so happy you’re joining me on this exciting adventure! Have a topic you want me to share about in the future? Email me with suggestions, I’m open to anything!
