05.19.2010 :: Family Shoot

There are few things more precious in this world than small babies.  Everything about them is special and new and magical.  I was incredibly excited when this great family asked me to do their family portraits.  I think you'll understand why when you see what a beautiful family they are...and how precious their baby girl is!

It was incredibly hard to choose favorites to post, since all of them were my favorites!  When I was editing these, I could hardly stop myself. It is just so exciting to see little memories captured as photos!

This little girl is such a princess.  I'm so excited to watch her grow and hope I'll get to do more photos of her in the future.  She's so beautiful!

And last, my very favorite.  All because two people fell in love...

The Grupacs :: Family Shoot

Camille and Brian and their 3 sweet kiddos were a joy to photograph!  They are such an adorable family and are all very photogenic.  Their family will always be special to me since they were my first "official" family to photograph!

The kids were posing for me before I even asked them to.  Made my job SO easy!  And the sunlight was perfect for this shot.  I was excited looking through the lens, and even more excited when I saw the finished product. :)

You guys belong in a magazine!

Sweet kids with sweet faces.

Thank you Grupacs for trusting me to capture your memories!  Can't wait to do it again!

The Mendenhalls :: Family Shoot

I tagged along with Lauren Gay last weekend, to meet the Mendenhall family.  (HUGE thanks to Lauren for letting me learn from her.  She is awesome!)  We met in Vienna, VA at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens.  This place is take your breath away beautiful and a perfect backdrop for family pics!  

The Mendenhalls are such a sweet family.  Rob and Jess are a true team and handle their adorable kiddos with such grace.

Little Mister Rowen is 2 1/2 and is such an explorer!  He reminded me of my oldest son, Grant, never missing a detail, picking up every rock and stick and studying it with intensity.  He surely didn't want to sit around and have his picture taken!  There was exploring to do, after all!  But, thankfully, while Lauren photographed the rest of the family, I had the privilege of following Rowen's exploring and captured a few sweet photos of him.

And then there's Brynlee... laid back, smiley, lovable, huggable Brynlee.  This little girl is about as sweet as they come. :)  She loved having her picture taken and the camera loved her right back!

Brynlee was about to celebrate her first birthday so her momma bought her a special outfit, complete with fancy tutu and lovely headband.  Oh my gracious, I love these pictures!

Probably my favorite thing to photograph is families just interacting...doing their normal thing.  And that's why I love these shots...

Thank you Mendenhalls!  It was a joy to work with your family.  Oh, and Happy Birthday  Brynlee!  :)
