I am as happy as this little guy today because we have ANOTHER snow day today! I’m so excited to snuggle up with my girlies for some popcorn and movies! What is your favorite way to enjoy a snow day?? ❄️☃️🌨 #lizcookphoto

This frigid weather we’ve been having here in Virginia has thrown my work schedule completely out of the window! With school closings left and right, the holiday season followed so soon by MLK day, and celebrating my littlest turning 3, my office hours have been unpredictable at best! But the good side of all that is that I’ve had a LOT of awesome quality time with my family this past month - which was one of my goals this year anyway. So, score! 🙌🏻☺️ Plus, finally settling back into the studio today to knock out some editing felt SO good! I finished a couple of sessions and made plans to bring my blog back to life in the next couple of weeks! Here’s a sneak peek of the beautiful Melissa. She waited so long for this sweet baby boy who will make his debut very soon! Check my insta story for a couple more of my favorites from her maternity session (which will hit the blog soon, too)! And I may or may not be crossing my fingers for another snow day tomorrow! ❄️☺️🤞🏻 What can I say? I kinda like my kids! 🤷‍♀️😄 -

I can’t think of a better way to kick off my 2018 shooting season than with a windy, stormy and romantic maternity session! Janie and Drew were seriously such amazing sports as they withstood the below freezing temperatures and insane windchill last weekend! I can’t wait to meet their sweet girl Riley after she makes her debut in just a few weeks... in MUCH warmer temperatures, inside the studio, of course! 😂 #lizcookphoto #lcmamas (Dress and shawl from the studio wardrobe, available to all LCP clients.)

Happy Friday!!! It's been a while since I've participated in #fridayintroductions! I'm Liz. 👋🏻 I spend my days working from my home photography studio shooting and editing baby & family portraits, weddings, and births! I'm a proud mama to two sweet girls and wife to an army guy! We love our life in the woods of Central Virginia, cherishing slow days and hot drinks (coffee for me, hot chocolate for the girls ☺️). I've been a photographer for almost 11 years and I still learn and grow from every session and event I photograph. But isn't that how life works? We never stop learning, never stop growing. Because what fun would life be if we reached a limit and then had to just... be? As this year wraps up, I'm thankful for the lessons I learned and all the ways I've grown in 2017. It was certainly a doozy of a year, but we need those every now and then to help keep our perspective in check, huh? ☺️ What was one of the biggest lessons YOU learned this year?? 📷 by @kelsey.schwenk

Santa Sessions this past weekend were downright magical with some of the most precious moments I've ever captured. These are a few of my favorites from my own daughters' session at the very end of the weekend. A lot of clients are using these pictures as gifts/cards, otherwise I would share them ALL! This whole experience has quickly become my favorite weekend of the year! Mark your calendars for next year: December 8 & 9, 2018! Session booking opens first to newsletter subscribers, so make sure you're on the list! (Link in profile!) 🎅🏻🌲🤶🏻 #bestweekendever

Now that my girls are past the baby stage, the original idea behind the phrase "sleep like a baby" is actually coming back to life for me. Because I really do wanna sleep just like this precious baby slept in my studio today! Just perfect. 😍 #lcmamas #lizcookphoto

This year would have marked eleven years treading water from Sept-Nov as the insanity that is the fall season of photography took over our lives... but it didn't happen this time. The season happened - of course - but I did more than tread water. Because this time around, I asked for help. It was kind of an accident, actually. I texted my mom about two months ago and jokingly asked her if she wanted to come live with me for a month while I was on call for @emilygeraldphotography's twin birth. And to my surprise, she said "Yes!" Looking back, I genuinely cannot imagine what the last two months would have looked like without her help. She saved me hundreds of dollars in childcare, ran errands for me (like grocery shopping and picking up last minute necessities for the girl's school activities), whipped up dinner for my family at the last minute (more than a few times), kept my little ladies looking sharp and smelling fresh (she loves to doll them up!), and even covered childcare for more than a few date nights during the season where staying connected in our marriage can be the most challenging (simply due to our busy schedules). She was a godsend, truly, and I cannot express my gratitude enough for all of the energy she poured into my family. And not just these last two months - but for my entire lifetime. My mom is the most generous person I know. She knows me best, loves me the most, and works so hard to cater to mine and my family's needs. Thank you, @an1tas55 for being so in tune to your family and going above and beyond in all you do for those you love. I love you and am so grateful for you. Happy Birthday, Mommy. 💕

When it's still surreal... that you've waited all this time and it's hard to believe they are really yours. Even these moments are fleeting. 💕

Six years ago today we began the journey of parenthood together. It has been, by far, my favorite adventure we've been on. You are creative, fun, and patient... qualities I married you for... and qualities which make you one of the best fathers I know. Thank you for loving me and our girls so well!! #lifewiththecooks
