How precious is sweet one year old Monica?! This is her one year old portrait session at the Cummer Garden in Jacksonville, FL, and she was a little rock star. She seemed to know how to pose and work the camera already. She’s just about to take her first steps and while she so wants to be independent and walking around, she still needs her mommy and daddy’s hands. So she took a hold of their fingers and off they went! Such a happy girl and so much fun to photograph!
My twin nieces just turned 7, how the years fly by! I wanted to use the formal dress and fascinator that I took pictures of London in, a few years ago. So they had those special pictures too, before their top teeth started falling out. And just in time! Indy lost her first top tooth a few days later! Such precious girls, it’s a joy to watch them grow. And they are getting better at cooperating for pictures and it’s becoming more and more fun too! It’s always worth the effort to have these beautiful pictures of them. Kids change so fast, you can never have too many pictures!
Just getting extended family all in one place from around the country is a massive feat. But I’m so glad we could capture this family together in one big family portrait. It meant so much to the grandparents to have these pictures and I know all the grandchildren will treasure these family pictures all their lives too!
The larger family picture was printed on art velvet paper and in a cherry 10×20 frame. It came ready to hang to keep things easy and it looks beautiful! And what fun to have all the kids together too so the grandparents can look at all those sweet faces every day! I know it will make them smile every time they see that framed print too!
Family pictures aren’t easy, but oh so worth taking!
I’ve been photographing these two boys since they were babies and it warms my heart that they always remember their fall family photo session as fun. They are growing up before our eyes as they turn into tweens. This year we explored Green Spring Gardens, a Fairfax County park, for our scenic photo backdrop. I sure hope these handsome boys always look forward to taking family pictures!
I loved the colors this family chose to wear for Christmas photos in Washington DC this year. So elegant! And a nice break from red! Wine colored velvet blazers for the boys and pants for dad, and a berry colored sweater for mom. And I’m always a fan of navy too, such a nice pairing of colors for classic family pictures. It was fun to catch up with them all. I always enjoy seeing the same photography clients year after year!
