This family is from different parts of the country and decided to all meet in Bedford, VA for a week. Erin came up with the idea to hire a photographer to come take some photos as a gift to their mother. Erin wanted her mom to relax and enjoy her children and grandchildren and actually be "in" the pictures. I spent a few hours with this lovely family capturing their summer family vacation. Here are just a few of my favorites from that day. Thank you Erin for a great time and for trusting me to capture some of your special family time!
I had the opportunity to photograph this family back in the Fall when they just had found out they were expecting baby #4! Now that their baby girl arrived, I came to their home and did a newborn/family session. We weren't expecting the children to all sit and look at the camera given their young ages, but we got some good ones! This is how life is with young children and we captured it. A time that can very easily be forgotten, yet if captured in photographs can be treasured forever. I love the shots of this precious baby girl and her loving family!
