Pumpkins and a cutie {Alexandria VA Candid Fall Family Session}

This super cute little man is 18 months old. He had such fun running around and having me chase him :) 

But before we started his mommy got to enjoy an amazing Make up session by my girl Tyra Richardson - she does crazy awesome work!! This is one of my favorite parts of family sessions. #pampermoms 

The day was gorgeous - but it was a bit chilly - this little guy could not care less - such a fun little session. 

We walked around all of Old Town Alexandria - it is truly one of the most beautiful places - especially in the fall!

A windy and cold day {Fall Family Mini Sessions 2015}

The first day we had scheduled the 2015 Fall Family Mini Sessions for we were rained out by Hurricane Joaquin - the day we ended up shooting these was much less wet, but it still was super cold! 

All kids in the pictures did so great despite the crazy cold that day - I am so excited to share these previews. 

The Fall Family Mini Sessions are part of my Holiday Season like Chai Lattes and Pumpkin Spice - I look forward to these all year! 

I am excited that so many families keep returning for their annual session - it makes my heart happy! 

To all my adorable fall families: Enjoy your little previews :)

'We should have done this 10 years ago' {Candid Family Portraits in Alexandria, VA}

One of the first things that this family told me was: 'We should have taken family portraits 10 years ago. Now our daughter will be off to college soon and it feels as though time just slips away'

Well, M Family, I am glad you decided to do your family portraits - now or 10 years ago - does not really matter as long as you do it! I KNOW you will cherish these forever and that is always worth it! 

I had a moment last night with my kids where I laid on their beds with them reading books during our bedtime routine. And my 3 year old walked over to her 6 year old brother to say goodnight and give him a kiss...I was just thinking to myself that in only a few years he will not allow her to do that anymore and she probably won't even want to do it in the first place...it made me giggle at first but then I became a little sad...

Time flies and we cannot change that. We can only try to live in the moment and hold on to whatever little memory we can. 

Taking family photos will help capture those fleeting moments - no matter if they happen when your kids are little or when they are a year away from going to college. 

M Family, please enjoy your preview! 

DC Twins {20 month twin session in Washington, DC}

These little cuties came to see me the first time when they were only 10 months old...oh my have they grown since! 

We met downtown Washington for a fun session including bubbles, books, blankets and monkeys :) 

L family, I hope you enjoy these images that we captured that morning. I cannot get enough of their little faces!
