Baby Boy Comes Home

[Midlothian VA lifestyle photographer]

When you’re looking for a photographer who brings herself and her camera into your home to capture  your best just as you are, that’s a lifestyle photographer, and that’s me.  I love most anything I can get behind my camera for, but I especially enjoy telling stories that  bring a smile to your face and a very particular moment in time to your heart every time you see them through the years to come. Lifestyle photographer, Tamara Henion Photography~ It’s Real!

After a pretty snow-less winter, central VA opened its doors to a beautifully fallen snow just after Valentine’s Day. It would also happen to be this little guy’s birthday. He came into his mommy and daddy’s world just about as quickly as the ground was covered in white that Monday early afternoon. I do believe it was an instant love fest between Mommy, Daddy and big sister that very moment.  When baby boy comes home the world changes as it once was, and no one would ever want to change that!

So, join me in welcoming this beautiful baby boy to the world. Oh, how precious!


At home with her new baby [Newborn photography Midlothian VA]

I am always excited to hear from expectant moms about photographing her new baby in what I feel to be the most precious way–at home and as it is. I think this sweet momma felt the most like I do than any I’ve been honored to photograph in the past. As a matter of fact, she was so easy going that after seeing her new baby boy do so well in just a short time, she was happy with what she saw (That’s all I want! So, with that and a very hungry  and often nursing baby in hand,  I was on my way. That’s how I work best, no fuss, no pressure, no must haves or dos, just let the baby  (and his mommy) take the lead, get what we can and leave them to be together once again.  Of all things I love, Mommy being close by is one of the best…and the fact that the clock is in the photo is great. Time with a newborn seems to run altogether. So glad to catch a glimpse of when this was all happening.

Baby H loved to keep his hands up by his face. His mommy said that in every ultrasound shot, he’s doing the same.  So incredible these tiniest people are. I’m amazed a new each time I get to photograph a newborn.

His sister was doing a good job learning to be a big sister. For two year olds, this little baby is no small thing. She’s beautiful and I know she’s going to be a wonderful big sister.

After a few snacks and right before I was heading out, baby H awoke to see what was going on all around him. Only a few days old, but very curious already.  Welcome to the world Big Guy.  I wish you the best in all the days ahead of you for you and your sweet little family!

Thank you for inviting me in and allowing me the honor to share these fleeting few hours with you as you adjust to your new normal. Blessings as your new family grows and adjusts.

Great Family, Great Family Photos…that’s what happens!

I don’t know if I love these family photos most because of the sweet faces in them, or because they make my job look so easy. <3

Love them!

I get inquiries that being with, “I love black and white photos, too…”   No use denying it, I LOVE black and white photography.

You too?


Little Boys, Birthdays, Photos [Midlothian VA In home photography]

Little Boys, Birthdays, Photos

I met these little boys last year when one was to become a big brother for the first time. Oh my goodness, they are too sweet. Their momma is incredible. She holds the fort down solo most nights and does for each of her sons everything they could ever need.  I guess that’s why she looks so good…always on the run and eating between naps, nursings and changes.  It’s always a good time when I get to take photos of little boys at their birthdays, so it was no surprise that we all had a good time. The bonus of my job is not only do I love what I do, I get new friends out of the deal: WIN/WIN!  See you soon, Momma (Starbucks? Yes!)  Happy 4th birthday, and happy 1st birthday to both of your big boys!

In a dream…where did the year go?

Baby Boy 6 months Photo Shoot At Home

What do I do when I get a call to do a  baby boy 6 months photo shoot at home?  I leap with joy, and, well, here’s why!  Thank you so much for inviting me over to play.  Everything was so much fun and so enjoyable, and now, this new family for Tamara Henion Photography family has photos hanging on their walls that they’ll be proud to display for generations.  It makes me as happy for them as they are with them.  I love doing this so much!
