After a pretty crazy February filled with sleet, snow, and icy rain, we were blessed with some warmer days last week, perfect for frolicking through the fields of Manassas Battlefield Park.

Gorgeous fall colors. Glowy sunshine. Love, warmth, and smiles all around. Sometimes everything clicks into place for a portrait session, and this beautiful family session was definitely one of those times!

This family session holds a special place in my heart, and that’s because I love the Smith family dearly! I have known Hannah and Barrett for almost a decade now (wow does that make me feel old!), having met while studying together at Cornell. They are two of the smartest, most compassionate, and most loyal […]

As soon as I met Aurora and Tristan by the Market Square fountain for their Old Town family session, I knew I was in for a fun one! Tristan had the most infectious and boundless energy, which made for some awesome candid shots between the more traditional photos we took. I also loved Aurora’s gorgeous […]
