The F Family | Fairfax, VA | Family Photographer

When I launched my new brand back in Novemeber, I decided one of the best ways to get people excited and to follow along with my rebrand was to do a giveaway. Many photographers do giveaways to celebrate big milestones in their businesses and I knew ultimately that giving away a session would be the most exciting way to celebrate my new brand and those clients who were following along with me.

I ended up giving away two mini-sessions to give those entering a better chance of winning, and was so excited that one winner was a sweet mama and her baby boy that I had not met before and the other winner was Kelly, who you might recognize from her maternity session last summer. I adored working with Kelly, her husband Brian and their two sweet kiddos, and knew their mini session would mean I got to meet their newest addition, Little Avery. After their maternity session and before my rebrand launched Kelly had been such a supportive client & friend, sending her friends my way and cheering me on as my business grew.

We met back at the Manassas Battlefields this weekend for their mini session, just after it had finished pouring down rain and it was the hottest, most humid day of the year so far and somehow they all look fabulous! Luckily they were up for anything and it made for some beautiful pictures, and for the first time ever I think the kids could have lasted longer than the adults! Here is a peek at our time together! 

And a silly one just for good measure!
