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!

Adorable twin boys - summer day in Reston {Northern Virginia Family Photographer}

I love taking photos of families and working with young children, but I get especially excited when I get to photograph twins, and in particular twin boys!  Not that I'm biased or anything, having twin boys of my own!  They remind me of what my little guys were like at that age.  These little munchkins are absolutely adorable and I loved getting to spend time with them and their beautiful parents.  Here are some of my favorite images from the session.  Enjoy and thanks so much for looking!  Don't forget to book your family session with me today!

Twins and their beautiful mother (northern virginia family photography)

During a very special mommy & me photo session, I was able to spend time with K & C, and their beautiful mama, and capture the pure fun they have together as a family!  From C's impish grin to K's infectious laugh, these twins have a blast together, and, they sure do love their mom!  I need to remind all of you moms (and dads) out there to get in the photo with your kids!  You will cherish the memories forever, and so will your children and grandchildren!  Schedule a yearly photography session and document your time together as a family!  The memories are so important!  Here are a few of my favorites from the session (there were so many to choose from!)  And, we had so much fun ending the session with a balloon race, that I needed to throw one of those images into the mix.  Enjoy and thanks for looking!
