There is nothing more fun than then when my friends get married and have babies than getting the opportunity to do their family photo shoot. The only thing that makes it better is when they are not just friends but former clients with some practice in front of my camera.
J & E got married right around the time I was getting started in photography and I was delighted when they asked me to photograph their big day (which was then featured on the Knot). Back at the time of their wedding they chose to skip an engagement session and bank it for a family photo shoot down the line… what can I say, they are planners!
Fast Forward to a Family Photo Shoot
Now that J & E are an adorable family of three and it was time for them to cash in that shoot. I knew E was going to style everything perfectly but she blew me out of the water with their outfits for the day. I was so excited to see her crotched summer dress and little man’s shorts with suspenders (how can you go wrong with a baby in suspenders?).
Lucky for us the crabapple trees were going nuts around that time so we had plenty of spring blossoms to work with for the shoot. As Washington DC photographers you know we can never get enough of shooting the blossom (cherry or otherwise).
We did the shoot around their home of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. I just love shooting around a family’s neighborhood. It is so special to be able to capture that exact moment in their lives.
