A Walk in the Woods: Family Fall Lifestyle Session


Last in my archives of ‘photo sessions from last year’ is this fall session with my friends Laurie and Jordan and their son, Daniel on this dreamy fall day in Virginia. (Truth be told we had to hunt a bit to find this ‘patch of fall’ since fall in Virginia still pretty much looks like summer- but we managed!) And we were fortunate enough to have the most perfect light stream through the trees at just the right time!

Since taking these photos all of us have moved away from Virginia and looking at these photos makes me nostalgic for those warm fall/summer days- and the friends that became our family there. They are special to me too because some of my first photo sessions ever were with these friends and I was honored to get to document some of their biggest milestone-moments: We did a maternity session before Daniel was born (one of my first photo sessions ever!) and then a newborn session when Daniel was only a week or so old, a mini-session when Daniel was 6 months old and able to sit up on his own, and now we are at our last session- Daniel is a full-on toddler learning to walk!

This fall session had a special surprise milestone moment as well: an announcement that Laurie and Jordan were expecting another baby! (And it’s taken so long for me to post this that their baby girl Gracie is already here! :) I wish I could have been able to document them with their Gracie but life has pulled us all in new directions and locations (Hawaii! Chicago!) I’m missing these friends but so grateful for the time we had together and also I’m excited to finally share these favorites from our last session:
