Family portrait in Old Town Alexandria
An upside-down Kelly, with her daughters Kayla and Kira
Old Town Alexandria, Virginia
April, 2009

Kelly and I used to work together in Virginia as instructional designers for an education company. I knew that her daughters Kayla and Kira are brilliant dancers and gymnasts, but I didn’t know that Kelly could get right into the mix with them! As you can tell by this photo, these ladies are fun. I had a great time wandering around the waterfront in Old Town with this beautiful family. Thanks, Kelly, Kayla, and Kira!

People often tell me how much fun they’ve had at photo sessions with me, and I love to hear that. I want to document the fun times that families have together, rather than just capture what a person looks like. I hope that when Kayla and Kira are grown up someday, they’ll look back on these photos and remember what a great time they had together that day.

Old Town doesn’t need much help. 😉 I’ve always loved it there. It was my favorite spot to go on dates when I was in high school.

Re: Great photos!

Hi Andrea! It’s great to hear from you!

Thanks, Thumper. I really appreciate it, because that’s what I strive to do!

Re: as a mom…

Thanks so much, Tina. It’s great to know that you reacted that way. 🙂

That’s great feedback, thanks. I hope that in the future, my clients’ children will appreciate the candid style of portraiture that I do for that very reason.

I could have spent all day with them. Truly contagious fun.

Absolutely. But then it was impossible not to grin all the time around the girls, so maybe it’s a chicken/egg situation!

Wow, those girls are so cute! What a happy looking family. =) I love these pictures!

Very nice!

You make Old Town look great 🙂 I love to feed the fish down at the harbor there, those guys are MONSTERS.

Great photos!

Hi Charlotte! These photos are great and capture Kelly and the girls so well. Glad to have found you again.

These photos and the ladies in them are GORGEOUS!

That looks like it was a really fun shoot! 🙂

What a wonderful way to start my week… seeing your terrific photos of this charming family having a blast. You do have a knack for capturing peoples’ personalities in your work.

I enjoy a lot looking at all your pictures! You are such a talanted photographer! I wish I could photograph like you:)

as a mom…

I know I would be thrilled to have portraits like this with my kid. I love the exhuberance captured – and also the tenderness with one another.

GREAT job Charlotte!

I had to do a double-take in that first one, because they all look like sisters.

It’s wonderful that they seem so, so close. Capturing that with your camera must’ve been a real privilege.

what happy girls! these are such playful photos, I regret that most of my childhood photos are ‘posed’ instead of goofy! Great job!

What a fun family! It just makes you want to hang out with them, even when you don’t know them. Awesome pictures, as always.
