Emily and Andrew :: Northern Virginia Family Photography

Wow, I am playing catch up big time this week!  Our wonderful impromptu beach vacation left me a week behind on everything.  (And honestly, I was already probably a week behind before that, do the math!) I have 3 photo shoots to blog and would also like to do a 4th of my family's beach pictures.  So get ready for an onslaught of photo blogs.  Are you ready?

I. love. these. kids.  They are full of personality and energy and were so easy to photograph naturally.

Emily loves frogs and is a star swimmer.  She's sweet and spunky and, as you can see, VERY photogenic!

Andrew is so much fun.  He's got a full tank of personality and gobs of energy.  I also hear he's quite the soccer player!

And even better than these kids individually, is these kids together.  They bickered and teased, just like all siblings, but there was a closeness I could see as they joked with each other.  They were having a ton of fun with one another!  It's sweet when you can see the love between siblings, even in the midst of normal rivalry!

So thankful I got to do photos for this family.  Hoping to do more in the future!

In case you didn't notice, I have changed the logo up a bit.  Okay, so I've totally changed it.  I'm also almost 100% sure that I'll be changing the name of my business.  I was certain I had chosen something original, that fit me perfectly, but in the short time I've been taking photos, I'm finding my name is not unique.  It's difficult to find me when you search for Small Wonders because that is apparently a common name for a photography business!  I also don't want to convey, through my name, that I only do infant and child photography.  It looks like using my name will be the best route I can take.  (I'm still playing with the look of the logo, what form i'll use on photos, etc.  That should explain the inconsistency in the photos above!)  So, look for announcements to come about a different domain for my website and a new blog name. Feel free to share your opinion on this change.  I'd like to hear people's thoughts.

Singing off for now...

06.20.2010 :: Northern Virginia Family Photographer

My friend Carmen asked me to do pictures for her family, as a gift to her husband for Father's Day.  Carmen is in my Life Group and I just love her!  She and her husband Joe are so great with their kids...patient and loving.  It was my pleasure to do their photos!

Allie and Lucas are so sweet.  They are both little adventurers...curious spirits with bundles of energy!

Lucas stayed by his Daddy's side most of the time.  So sweet!

Allie is just a little doll.  She was really enjoying searching for rocks, but we did convince her to pick a flower just for this picture!

Mom and Dad may have little ones, but they've still got it!  :)

We just let the kids play and explore while I snapped pictures.  Lucas brought his butterfly net and was determined to catch a bug.  I'm sorry to say he didn't catch one, but he and Dad had a lot of fun searching!

We did happen to spot the most beautiful butterfly, under the bridge.

Thanks for sharing your family time with me!  It was my pleasure!
