Fall Family Photos

Fall is truly one of the best times of the year to schedule a family photo session.  Not only is the weather perfect, the scenery turns the most gorgeous shades of orange, yellow, and scarlet.  Besides, the holidays are on the horizon– it is time to think ahead to holiday cards and gifts for those hard-to-shop-for grandparents and other family members. :)

I had the privilege of shooting this lovely family last fall.  You can tell that they truly adore one another.

I love it when families relax and have a great time together.  You can tell how much they enjoy each other’s company.Leesburg family photographyBig Brother was so gentle and kind with his little sis.

Family Photos on the Beach

Even though the calendar is moving towards fall, the warm weather makes me long for the beach and our annual pilgrimage to the Outer Banks.  Since jumping in the waves is not on the agenda today, I am consoling myself by sharing some photos from a favorite beach session.  I think it is so wonderful when a family takes time for some beautiful family photos on vacation.  After a fun (and tiring!) day of swimming and playing in the sand, the boys were such good sports about getting cleaned up, changed into nice clothes, and getting “handsome hair”.  Aren’t they a beautiful family??

You can tell that these two have a great time together, even when they were worn out from a long day of play!

Daddy often travels for work, so the boys have to get in their cuddles and playtime while they can.

Of course, Mama needs her snuggles, too!

A Session in Two Parts

I first met this beautiful family in March when the boys were just shy of two years old.  Mama wanted to capture this special time in the boys’ lives.  Even though it was really, REALLY cold; the boys were great sports and a joy to be around.  How could anyone resist their big brown eyes, adorable outfits and charming smiles?

Since we didn’t want the boys to get too cold in the frigid temperatures, we kept their birthday-month session short and met up again on a much warmer day to create more beautiful images for them.  After more rain delays than I can count, Mother Nature finally cooperated with us and let us get together again in early June.  The rain cleared out just in time for a lovely early evening session.  They boys were just as sweet and charming as ever.

We danced, chased bubbles, and played with my cool wooden box.

Of course, there was plenty of time for snuggles with Mom and Dad.

I am always so glad when Mama is willing to be in the photos.  There is nothing like the bond between a mother and her son.  This shot definitely make my heart melt a little.  <3It was a pleasure to work with you.  Thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your family!

Northern Virginia Family Visit | Leesburg VA Family Photographer

Not long ago I was asked to photograph an extended family while everyone was in town for a visit.  I was able to catch up with them during the whirlwind trip to northern Virginia and the Washington DC area.  I understand that they had a busy weekend including a trip downtown, swimming, and tons of visiting and catching up.  In between all of those activities, they invited me to capture some gorgeous images of everyone together.

You can tell how much this family loves each other and how much fun they have together!  Here are Grandma and Grandpa with their two kids.  Aren’t they a good looking group?

One more group shot of all twelve of them together!

It was a pleasure to meet all of you!
