Manassas Battlefield Sunset Family Session | Northern Virginia Family Photographer

When you get wayyyy behind in blogging, but still want to catch up, it is so fun to look back through all my sessions since July. But when you get a new camera that eliminates all the old editing headaches you had, and you love every session you have taken with it, it makes it really hard to look back at old sessions ;)

This was my first session with my new camera. Apparently Sony and I were made for each other. I just wish it didn’t take me so long to finally switch. I could list so many wonderful things about my new camera. The colors and I just work together. I would spend so much time editing and editing and re-editing colors with my old camera. With my Sony, the colors are almost exactly what I need straight out of the camera. My editing has streamlined so much!

If you are looking for a new camera, I would love to chat about my Sony mirrorless. It has saved me in so many ways (LIVE VIEW shooting! No more neck pains after sessions!).

Here are a few favorites from this family session…

Manassas Battlefield Family Summer Session | Northern Virginia Family Photographer

My summer family sessions have been amazing this year! The light is just incredible, and I love the wardrobe options... dresses, sandals, bright colors! However, there has been a downside... the humidity and bugs! I have had quite a few sessions this summer where the temps were in the low 100's, but I was surprised because in the open shade it wasn't bad at all.

Not this session. The temperature was only 88* (according to my car), but we must have had 1,000,000,000% humidity. When I got back to my car I looked like someone had dumped a bucket of water on my head! My hair was stuck to my face and my shirt was completely soaked. I don't know how they did it, but this family managed to stay cool, collected, and gorgeous throughout their entire session... even Dad in his long sleeve shirt!

If the humidity wasn't bad enough, the bugs were in full effect. I bet I edited out hundreds of bugs from these photos. The funniest photos are where the bug is in focus right next to their face...! Lucas was such a champ, smiling while he was swatting at the bugs and "the itchy grass" :)

Manassas Battlefield Maternity & Family Session | Northern Virginia Photographer

Another session with gorgeous light at my new favorite spot at Manassas Battlefield.

I just adore this family! They are so incredibly sweet and their little girl is finally starting to warm up to me... just in time for her sister's newborn session! Two weeks until she is born and three weeks until I get to meet her in my home studio for her newborn session!  

Here are a few favorites from their summer maternity + family session...

Manassas Battlefield Family Session | Northern Virginia Photographer

This sweet boy absolutely LOVES the camera! He has been a dream client at every single session: newborn, 6 month milestone, 1 year milestone (Remember him? He took his first steps at his 1st birthday session!!!), and now family photos! He was super active and just wanted to get down and run... but he gave us smiles and that is all we want at this age!
