Hamilton Virginia Storytelling Family Session | Northern Virginia Family Photographer

Ok, ok. You all know I absolutely love this family right?! I’m sure you recognize this gorgeous family. We had so much fun at our sunrise session (Yes! That’s right, sunrise!) in Hamilton, VA at one of the most beautiful locations, Rockwood Estate. Rockwood was the perfect setting to document this beautiful family and their moments together, as we knew it would be. So thank you so much again!

I’ve been lucky enough to document this family for the past couple of years, since Henrik’s birth and family sessions ever since and I truly feel so very grateful. Our session this time around was no different. It was filled with love, laugher, beautiful light and a lot of talk about getting tickled! We had fun exploring parts of the estate and while it was just slightly chilly and a bit foggy it was just oh, so perfect. We had fun pausing and letting everyone just be themselves.

A huge part of my sessions is stepping back and watching you and your little ones interact with each other, it’s watching and documenting authentic moments between you and your loved ones. I often will give prompts to help create these moments as well, but ultimately I aim to create raw, beautiful, connected moments that represent your own family and that’s different for everyone. Here are just a few of my favorites from our session!

Curious about other ways to achieve that for your family? I’ll have a blog about that soon too! *Hint it includes why styling, location and the like are so important to each family*
