About a month ago, we had the pleasure of a family photo shoot with Libby Selle Photography. Libby moved back to Richmond from Alaska and reached out to me after reading about LateEnough.com in Richmond Family Magazine.
I was both excited and overwhelmed because we wanted to pick a Richmond place that has meaning to our family and all the playgrounds around town are busy in late September. We finally settled on Belle Isle since this is the first place we went as a family after our son was born. We’ve taken the kids back there almost every year, but this time it wasn’t my awful photography attempting to document it. Hooray!
We showed up in our brand-new RV because we had so many places to be Saturday we needed to bring a house.
Obviously, this wasn’t going to be Libby’s typical photo shoot, but she was a trooper.
Yes, Libby even jumped rocks over the James River with her photo equipment to get a good shot.
I think the tell-tale sign of a good photo session is when your 8-year-old, who only wants wears “athletic shorts,” gets upset when it’s time to go home. Also, I had a difficult time narrowing down what photos to post here, but hopefully, you will be placated with these.
Thanks Libby for a great experience! I know that we will be using her again and hope any of my Richmond area readers will reach out to Libby as well. She was kind and flexible and knew what she was doing when it came to bring out the best in my kids as well as choosing the right lighting and lenses. Even when I had some issue with her website, she was right on top of it and reached out to her web designer as well. I often feel the most telling aspect of working with someone is not when everything is perfect but how someone deals with a challenge. She met all our challenges including the RV.

Like her on Facebook.
Most importantly, book her for your family (and more!) photos.
