Oh, this family. Four of the sweetest people on the planet. Since I officially stopped scheduling portraits a couple years ago, the occasional family session is SO MUCH FUN for me. And when the family is as sweet and dear as this family… well, it’s just amazing.
Ali is an incredible photographer (if you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you’ve definitely seen her work) and she is kind enough to photograph my family every year. I love being able to return the favor! For the second year in a row, I met at Ali and Jesse’s amazing home right outside of Warrenton. The yard is full of trees and this incredible light. It’s just gorgeous! Also, Ali was pregnant last year, and I loved being able to photograph baby Vaughn this time. What a sweet and precious little soul! It’s really special to watch the love that this family shares, and being invited to photograph them together was such a gift.
While most of the session was taken on my MK III, I did take two rolls of film as well (one in color and one in B&W). Of course, those images are some of my favorites! So, so lovely. Here are just a handful of the images that caught my eye…
Ali & Jesse: I loved spending the afternoon with you guys! Your friendship is a treasure.
** This session was made EVEN BETTER with the addition of Erin Sellers. She is such a talented videographer, and she put together the sweetest video of our session. I know Ali and Jesse will treasure this forever! If you’re interested in adding video to your next family session, you should definitely check her out!
