Such a beautiful family! They all were so involved with the look of the shoot which always make better images.
Newborn portrait session with Ira and David. Ira is a lovely, talented mother and clothing designer in the northern Virginia area. She and I have worked together on fashion shoots, but were always on the same side of the lens. Alas, she is on the other side of the lens and I enjoyed capturing these memories for her.
Not all mothers are comfortable taking photos of them breast feeding baby, but if they are it is a wonderful shot to get. This really high lights the special bond between mother and child.
Ira uses only natural materials in her designs and brought along a few pieces for her newborn session. David looked so natural wrapped in her handwoven blanket for these “babe in the woods” photos.
Big brother, Maksim, wanted to be in a photo with his little brother, David, so we set up this shot of them sharing time fishing.
Fall time Mommy daughter family portrait session in beautiful Lake Ridge Park, Virginia. The weather was almost perfect and we had clear, blue sky for the whole session which provided wonderful light.
Women’s portrait of Nina framed by the last flowers of the year.
Looks like a doll in her little white dress with her beautiful, chestnut colored eyes.
MaKenna is a charming young lady with a sweet smile. She wanted some natural feeling high school senior photographs and after some discussion we chose to go with an outdoor setting in Woodbridge, Virginia.
Makenna has an eclectic sense of fashion, but limited herself to only a couple of outfits for the session that worked very well with the setting.
