The Gallers | Family Session

The Gallers are friends of ours from New Life.  They are such a fun family and, as it turns out, very photogenic! :)  I just kept looking at the photos, amazed at how natural, and great, they all looked in each one!  The boys were cracking me up with their GQ poses and just how much they actually enjoyed the session. We had a fun afternoon at Silver Lake.  I'm excited to share some of my favorite photos from our time together!

I love getting some pics of just Mom and Dad.  And I love the way these turned out!

Thanks for a fun afternoon, guys!  See you soon!

Jachimski Family | Silver Lake Family Session

Kyle is one of those boys you want your son to be friends with!  He's sweet, smart, and very polite!  He and my son Ashton were in the same kindergarten class last year and Kyle was one of the VIPs who attended Ashton's rock star birthday party in September!  After posting some pics of the party, Jill (Kyle's mom) and I started chatting about a photo session for their family.  We were able to meet late one afternoon at Silver Lake Park in Haymarket.  The whole family is so sweet and we had a great time together!  Even though Charlotte was sick (which none of us were aware of, at the time) she was a trooper through the session and we got some great shots!  I'm happy to share some of my favorites with you.

Thanks Jachimski family!  It was so much fun!

Lindsey and Brandon | Gainesville, VA Wedding

It's always an honor to second shoot for Lauren Gay and this wedding was no different.  I was so blessed to be able to shoot alongside her for Lindsey and Brandon's beautiful wedding at Heritage Hunt Country Club in Gainesville.  Lindsey and Brandon are incredibly sweet and so much fun!  When faced with a rainy (even a bit snowy) wedding day, they made the very best of it.  In fact, not once did I hear a negative word from either of them.  They had a blast and celebrated, surrounded by family and friends who obviously think the world of them!

I got to hang out with the guys prior to the ceremony.  They were a lot of fun!

When I arrived to meet the girls, this is the scene I walked into...

Everyone was just so happy and excited.  It was such a great environment!  The weather definitely didn't put a damper on the day!

The reception was all smiles, too!  From first to last dance, everyone was having a blast!

Loved the photos we were able to do inside...

But I was also thankful for the umbrellas, so we could get some fun outdoor shots, too!

And at the end of the night, the sky opened up so we headed out to get a few more!

Lindsey and Brandon, you were so positive and fun!  I know that great spirit is going to be an incredible blessing in your marriage!  Wishing you all the best!!!

The Mosers | Family Session

The Moser family was an absolute JOY to meet and work with!  In fact, joyful is just how I would describe this sweet family.  The whole session was really just about having fun and enjoying their time together.  Because Mom and Dad were so relaxed, the kids felt free to be themselves, which made my job easy!  Here are some of my favorites from our time together, at Silver Lake in Haymarket.

This little girl has personality x10!  What a sweetie!

The kids had fun playing in the leaves!

Talk about joy...

Someone was ready to be finished with pictures.  (After all, there was so much to explore!) But she agreed to sit with her mama and that gave us the chance to capture these precious moments.

Ah, I love when the sun begins to set on the water!

Thanks Moser family!  I was blessed to have met you and I hope we see one another again soon!
