Twin boys turn one! - Family Session {Northern Virginia Family Photographer}

I have had so much fun this year photographing twins -- especially twin boys!  Since my little twin guys are now 5 years old, I really enjoy getting to spend time with these other adorable little brothers -- these cuties just turned one!  Aren't they the CUTEST?!?  I loved being able to work with this beautiful family when their munchkins were newborns, and was so happy to photograph their one year photos!  These little guys are the happiest!  Always smiling and laughing.  They are such a treasure to photograph!  Here are a few from our fun session.  Thanks so much for looking!

Beautiful family - Meadowlark Gardens {Northern Virginia Family Photography}

One of the aspects of family photography that I love, is being able to watch the littles grow each year!  I have done several family photo sessions for this gorgeous family, including newborn photos of C, and it is incredible to see how they grow and change into these amazing little people!  Here are a few of my favorite images from the session.  Enjoy and thanks for looking!

gorgeous family - beautiful fall morning (DC metro kids photography)

This fall I photographed one of my favorite couples and their adorable kids at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, VA.  I have taken their family photos for the past few years and their sessions are an absolute joy to shoot.  This session was no exception!  The kiddos had a blast running around the large gardens and playing in the children's garden play area that Meadowlark has set up for the little ones.  Mom and Dad looked gorgeous and were able to enjoy the morning and spend some time together as a family on an otherwise hectic and normal weekday.  It was such a joy to spend the morning with them!  Here are a few of my favorite images from their session.  Enjoy!

The Beauty that Surrounds Me - December

December flew by this year, and before I realized it, the holidays were over. We did many fun things together as a family, and one thing the boys really enjoyed was walking through the Festival of Lights at Meadowlark Gardens. You have reserved time slots to enter so that you have plenty of time to slowly walk through the gardens and view the amazing light exhibits. The boys had an absolute blast! At the end of the walk, there is a fire where you can make smores and a little stand where you can buy a cup of hot cocoa or coffee. The boys were a little too young and tired out to enjoy the fire at the end of the walk, but I'm sure that will be a different story by next year.

We were super excited for Christmas this year and my mom and stepdad were going to come down to spend it with us. Unfortunately, my stepdad has had some medical issues and had to spend a good deal of time in the hospital, so they cancelled. On Christmas Eve the boys came down with pneumonia and ear infections, so they weren't too playful or too interested in presents. However, I did get a lovely image of Danny enjoying the Christmas tree and giving it a huge hut! I love photographs of ornaments, and took several photos. I found these to be so beautiful that I could just stand and stare peacefully at them for a while.

And, finally, what holiday season can't be complete without some NYE fun! We took our boys out to dinner along with another couple and daughter around the same age as the boys. The little girl's mom made these fun signs that we had the three of them hold up, and this is what is most beautiful to me this month. That joy, sweetness and innocence is pure beauty.
