I love early December portrait sessions, because it’s possible to get fall colors and holiday decorations all in one location. The variety is so fun!

      Over the weekend, I photographed this adorable family at Lake Anne Plaza. They have three boys, including a two-month-old newborn who took part in his first family portrait session. He is going to love growing up with his incredibly fun older brothers. You might recognize the eldest brother from my photo shoot with him last year — he’s adventurous and hilarious.

      My family portrait sessions are a combination of traditional poses, relaxed cuddles, candid interactions, and a lot of silliness and fun.
