It’s bad business to pick favorites, but I’m just gonna say it… I think this past Sunday’s mini session marathon was the best family session event we’ve EVER had. We worked with 17 gorgeous families, had gorgeous light all day, and beautiful fall foliage at the McG Studio in Arlington. It was a long day and we crashed HARD when we finished shooting, but it was so COMPLETELY rewarding. We love getting to see so many smiling faces, and play with so many happy kiddos… these kind of days make our twice-yearly family session marathons TOTALLY worth the tired! 🙂
If you didn’t see “Part 1” of the Fall Family Mini Sessions we shot back in October (our Overflow day, since the first day booked up in just a few hours!), you can click HERE to see that blog post.
Today, we’ll be sharing our favorite images from the first 9 mini sessions we shot on Sunday, and we’ll share the other 8 sessions tomorrow. 🙂 We’re trying really hard to keep to just sharing 3-4 images from each session, and it’s REALLY hard because we love so many of them!!
Blogstalkers will definitely recognize this family. 🙂 We shot Pam & Mike’s gorgeous wedding in Aruba last year, as well as their precious son Brandon’s newborn AND Sock Monkey-themed first birthday photos! He’s such a happy little guy, and warmed up to us really quickly this time around!
We photographed Greg & Nikki’s wedding in 2011, and now they’re expecting a little girl! Time flies, doesn’t it??
Caty & Justin brought their nugget Kinleigh out to play, and we were SO glad to see them. This is just the coolest family, and we’re honored to call them friends. Plus, Miss K was such a smiley little thing for their session!
We’re going to see Katie & James again in a couple weeks, when we shoot Katie’s best friends’ wedding! We love all the little connections that happen through this business of ours, especially the ones that allow us to meet such fantastic couples. 🙂
Danielle & Aaron brought handsome little Rye out to play with us, and while he was a skeptical dude at first, he warmed up once he got to play with leaves!!
Kathleen & Michael were a 2012 McG couple, back for holiday pictures. It’s always such an honor when our clients come back over & over.
We were so extra-special excited to see this family! Hilary was one of my very best friends in high school, and we’ve since photographed engagement, wedding, maternity, & newborn portraits for her sweet family. I can’t believe how big Asher is getting… Cody & Hilly, you’re such wonderful parents!!
Oh, and the best part?? These pictures were partly to celebrate the impending addition of a NEW baby Moore! 🙂 YAY!
Brittani had a family connection when she booked her family session… we photographed her brother’s sister-in-law’s wedding in 2009. Once we drew the map, it was REALLY fun to see how the word has spread, and McG is now a family affair!!
Tripp was the happiest when playing with his mommy. 🙂
Josh & Lexi’s son Collin looked so cute in his dapper little vest. It was so clear, even just in 20 minutes, that this is one of those families that loves REALLY hard… so much fun to photograph.
So much pretty already, and people… that’s only HALF! 🙂 Be sure to come back tomorrow to see the second half of the day’s celebration sessions!
