For the longest time I’ve wanted to shoot at Chapman’s Mill in Haymarket, VA. It’s practically in my backyard and I just love going there and hiking in the area. Every time I visited I remarked about what a perfect place for portraits it would be! Well, this weekend I finally had the opportunity to shoot there and it was wonderful! The hazy morning light acted like a giant soft box – SO pretty. Another pretty aspect of the shoot? Kady!! I absolutely LOVE photographing Kady. I think this is the fourth time I’ve had the chance and it’s so much fun every time! She’s such a model.
Over the time I’ve known Kady and her family we’ve become good friends. They even came to a BBQ at my house this year! Our dogs enjoy play dates when they can, and we keep in touch frequently. So, when Christine wrote me about getting family photos taken, I was of course super excited! And when she mentioned wanting to include a pregnancy announcement?!?! Oh, I was OVER THE MOON!!
I am so happy and excited for this beautiful family. I can’t wait for the maternity and newborn photos! Until then, enjoy a few of my favorites from this family/portrait shoot.
