One way I like to give back to the community is offering a session for a fundraiser. This was a family who won a free session with me from their church. What a beautiful family with two handsome boys! We met at a peaceful park in Arlington, Virginia. My kind of place! Such a beautiful greenery backdrop for the family portraits. It was fun to capture sweet portraits for this family!
Seeing families year to year and being apart of the milestones in their life is truly a blessing. I first met this family when she was pregnant with her first, doing maternity photos. I was lucky enough to see the little guy grow during the first year because of the “babies first year package”. Now, I am capturing another milestone with their second baby and again will be there to capture his first year as well! I love seeing families grow and capturing the kids growing up. It’s fun to be a photographer and a blessing to bring joy to their lives through pictures.
Summer is a fun time to capture family portraits! The weather is perfect, the sunsets are beautiful and there is just something innocent about summer portraits! We took these beautiful sunset photos at Claude Moore Park in Sterling, VA. It was fun to see this family again from capturing theme last year. It’s amazing how much all the kids have grown and how much personality the little one has! Enjoy some of my favorites from this summer sunset family session!
Since their sweet & shy little girl was having a birthday soon, they thought of having family photos done! It’s amazing how fast a year goes and then you realize, “I need more pictures of us before my kid gets any bigger!” Birthday’s have a way of sneaking up on you and reminding you of that. I am so glad we were able to fit in a summer family session before this adorable little one turns three! She was so sweet to lend me her ‘Minnie’ to help take the photos. And when Minnie was with me, she would instantly smile. Her smile is so precious and innocent and I’m so glad I was able to capture that in a photo. There were definitely some sweet moments captured from this families session! Something they will always be able to look back on.
