Favorite Photo Friday: Rose

Just like that almost an entire month has passed! This month has been a pretty amazing balance of work and play. A personal highlight was being able to attend a friend's wedding in Tennessee and the trip was an absolute blast. Brian having the opportunity to spend time with my college friends was the best. Plus, we took time to head back to my Alma Mater and that....well, it was very special. A professional highlight is the mix of children/family portraits and product photography that came my way. They're very different to photograph, but both are so much fun. It's very energizing and rewarding to be stretched shifting gears like that: directing children and styling products. Over the next couple weeks I'll share glimpses into the work I've done for two great jewelry lines (one right here in Cville and the other from the United Kingdom). 

But, TODAY. Today we're turning our attention to a darling family I recently photographed. We've become friends with Adam and Hayley through Portico and I happen to think their daughters are downright adorable. We met in the early morning (I love morning light) and had a lovely shoot. Charlotte and Olivia were a delight to direct and their giggles and big smiles had my heart melting. Let's roll out the favorites!

 These black and white portraits of the girls are my favorites. They're straightforward and timeless. Plus, I love how each girl is exuding joy but their expressions and body language are different.

 Hayley said of her favorite, "This is my favorite because it captures my kids at their best- when they're enjoying each other's company."

 Adam simply stated of his favorite that "it's the cutest!"

See what I mean? Aren't their girls so precious?!

Thank you Adam and Hayley! I'm so thrilled you're enjoying your family portraits. 

Wishing you a happy weekend!
