Yesterday was my very first Mother's Day and I loved every minute of it. We spent the morning with two very special friends at Mount Vernon and toured the beautiful grounds before heading over to Old Town Alexandria for a delicious brunch. Of course, we managed to squeeze in a photoshoot while we were there to remember the special day.
Happy Mother's Day to all my friends and clients that I am lucky enough to call my friends.
My special gift from baby Eleanor was that she actually smiled for a family photo. :-)
**I just realized I'm wearing this dress in another post! lol Guess I need to change up my wardrobe a little.
I took some time today to seize the moment and take some family photos of my own with the blossoms. It was a gorgeous afternoon and I love that we got to spend a few moments enjoying the weather, the blossoms, and our tiny little family. You can tell from the photos who Eleanor likes just a little better.
Contrary to what my Facebook or Instagram feed might imply, I do take pictures of people other than baby Eleanor on a daily basis. :-)
This fall 2014 family photography season was a whirlwind in the most amazing way possible. I know I have said this before, but I seriously feel honored to watch all of my client families grow up. Each season I get to see little babies take their first steps and then "poof"- 4 years later they are running and laughing and winning games for gummies. The best part is they are about as excited to see me (most of the time) as I am to see them.
Here are a few images from this season's family photography mini-shoots. More to come next week!
