November 2019 – The first weekend in November is one of the best for family sessions.  The craziness of Halloween and its surrounding activities is over but the weather is still quite pleasant.  I have photographed this gorgeous family a few times now and I think this is the third time we’ve had our session at the Jerome Buddie Ford Nature Center in Alexandria, VA.  I love this place!  There are trails, woods, and a huge creek for throwing rocks.  The afternoon sun shines beautifully through the trees.  It is such a gem in this city.

Many of my repeat clients like to be photographed in different locations.  But what’s fun about photographing the same people in the same place every year is to see how much the cute kiddos have grown!  These two adorable siblings love to find giant leaves and toss rocks into the creek.  And our sessions are basically nature walks full of adventure and exploration.  Did I mention that I love how this family rocks their flannel shirts?  Yes, pun intended.
