Fall Family

Go ahead, tell me how absolutely adorable this family is! When Ashlee contacted me about doing some family portraits in October hoping to have fall colors in the background, I was expecting to be able to accomplish that fairly easily in the middle of October. So we scheduled a time to meet at Gulf Branch Nature Center in Arlington, but for some reason the leaves there haven’t changed colors yet! We’re all bright reds, oranges, and yellows out here in the Dulles area, but not so much at that park. No matter – Ashlee’s family came completely decked out in the colors we had hoped to find, so it was perfect! Here are a few of my favorites:


Jackson is at an age where he can follow directions really well and he was so good at giving me lots of smiles. So handsome!

Sweet Miss Kennedy is at the age where there is so much to discover about the world, and there were a lot of other fascinating things going on around the park other than me with my camera. But I love these expressions. And isn’t her outfit so cute?!

And this is Miss Lucy! She woke up from a nap to find me there with my big camera, but she was so good, too.

We were all making owl noises here, hence the “whooo whooo” faces.

I seriously couldn’t get over how cute their clothes were, right down to the socks!

A couple of sweet moments with Dad:





Towards the end of our session, Kennedy let me know that she wanted to “do it again” so it turns out she loves to model after all! We grabbed this last fun one just before we finished up.

  • Eileen Broderick - These are great!! I just did two shoots with little ones a bit younger than Kennedy and it can be tough to capture them when everything else is so much more interesting to them than us! She’s a doll–all 3 of them are. I love Lucy’s expression in the “owl” shot. Gorgeous family.ReplyCancel
