The E Family | Northern Virginia Family Photographer

I have recently been cutting back on the number of family sessions I have been taking on in order to allow more flexibility in my schedule for birth sessions and newborn sessions. However, being able to capture images for our friends and their growing families is something I truly love to do, so I was so excited when Carolyn e-mailed me several months ago about getting some summer family photos done. Her husband Matt and Mark went to dental school together and Matt and Carolyn have the most adorable little boys: Junior and Jackson who I loved getting to meet and spend the morning with last weekend! I think my favorites have to be the “just mommy and daddy” shots we got at the end!
