The Rodda Family | Old Town Alexandria


Earlier this month, I was SO EXCITED to meet the Rodda Family for a fun family session around Old Town Alexandria. This session was really special because Misty is a dear friend of mine, and she’s about to celebrate her 40th birthday! For the forty days leading up to her birthday, Stan has been surprising her (each day) with something special, and our session one of the surprises. I can’t tell you how honored I was when Stan reached out to me! Misty is an amazing photographer, and it’s always really special (and humbling) to take photos of other photographers. (Also– I think Stan deserves some sort of award for pulling this off. I’ve loved following Misty on social media to see all of the fun surprises leading up to her big day!)

It was actually FREEZING outside during our shoot (all the heavy coats are laying just outside of every photo!), but no one complained about the wind or their frozen fingers. In fact, the whole experience was so enjoyable! Misty and Stan have three of the most thoughtful and interesting kids, and I loved chatting with each of them. It made me look forward to a time (in the not so distant future) when I will also have a house full of teens and tweens! I seriously could not have asked for a better start to my weekend. Here are just a few of my favorites from our session…
