As a Maryland family photographer, it’s always a huge honor when a family asks me to take their photos again. I offer family portrait sessions throughout Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia, and I love finding new locations for my families over the years. For this particular family, we took timeless family photos in Washington, DC, with iconic views of the Washington Monument.
For this session, we sought out a nature location. Let me tell you – the waterfront beach setting was perfect! We had lovely soft light on this day, and the fall leavesfall leaves were just starting to pop. It was still warm enough for everyone to be comfortable. And the kids had a blast exploring!
Mama chose a very classic neutral color palette for wardrobe. I always recommend neutrals for your wardrobe, as they truly give you a timeless look! I also photographed their session with medium format film (and a few digital photos). Enjoy a few favorite moments below.
