A SUMMER EXTENDED FAMILY SESSION || MANASSAS NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD, VIRGINIA

I’ve had quite a few extended family sessions lately + I have to say that I’m totally obsessed with them! There’s something so special about bringing grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins, etc. to a photo session - is it chaotic? Of course, it is! But that’s part of the fun, right? When this gorgeous family reached out to me, I was excited + honored that they were willing to find the time to squeeze in a family shoot while visiting from out of state. We were somewhat concerned about the weather that day (it was sprinkling until about a few minutes before the shoot) + grandma was a bit restricted because she’d recently had knee surgery. Nonetheless, we had just enough rain to give us a rainbow + cloud cover, followed by a peek of golden hour sunlight at the end! These are just a few of many favorites from this session - I mean, those kiddos just steal the show, don’t they? :) Little R was such a gentleman + baby M was the absolute sweetest! Those genuine smiles, along with the fun props (the watermelon lollipop + cricket set were a huge hit!) … I mean, this family was pure sunshine. Thank you, Libby + Premal, for trusting me to capture these moments for you!
