We got an email from Ann last October asking us to come down to do her Alexandria family photos in February. We were very excited because this meant she had some big news… she and David were expecting and wanted to schedule a family photo session once he was born!
Ann and her whole family are quite special to us. They brought us to Scotland last year for Ann and David’s wedding, as well as Kansas City, Charlottesville, Heppner and Hermiston, Oregon and a few other family and engagement shoots in between.
Needless to say we love this family and were incredibly excited to have the chance to see them again!
We planned to meet Ann, David, Max and Leo at their apartment and take some photos of them in their home.
We were so happy that in addition to meeting their new baby, Leo, we also got to see David’s other son, Max!
Max lives in Scotland with this mother and we had the pleasure of meeting him last year at the wedding. This kid is so sweet and was so great with his little brother Leo! We took some precious photos of him reading to Leo and he was such a natural.
If only his beautiful Scottish accent could come through in these photos, it really added another level of adorable to the moment!
After spending some time in their apartment everyone bundled up and we drove over to Old Town Alexandria to take some photos outside.
We walked around by the harbor and then made our way to the brick and cobblestone streets that give Old Town its charm.
Even though it was cold, it was still a beautiful day for their Alexandria family photos. The sun lit the streets and created a warm glow as they posed as one big happy family.
After Leo woke up long enough to flash those sweet eyes at the camera for a few group shots we called it a day.
We love repeat clients because it’s like getting together with good friends that you’ve shared some of the most significant moments in their lives with.
Congratulations to Ann, David and Max on the newest addition to your family!
