Thought I’d share some of my favorites from a recent family session I did at a small park near Dulles Town Center. It is basically a green field framed by rows of trees, adjacent to a playground (great for families with kids because we can walk over to the playground for some candid shots of the kids after the more formal family photos). Just a couple of weeks ago it had beautiful fall foliage, and I was lucky to capture some of it for the several family sessions I did there.
Family G. wanted to get some nice family photos for the holidays and to share with family and friends, but since they have two active little boys the session was a combination of posed, lifestyle and semi-posed shots. I had them sit down and pose for family shots when I felt the kids were ready (while keeping the boys busy with a book and some toys), and they got to have some fun playtime with Mom and Dad in-between – I had some trains set up for them, and they also had fun with Mom and Dad reading, running around and playing at the playground. I think everyone (including myself) had a great time!
Here’s what we got for the family and mommy-and-me and daddy-and-me photos:
And a bunch of fun ones:
