A Very Special Place – Family Photographer Alexandria,Virginia


Many of my family portrait clients ask to be photographed in their own gardens. The reason being that in the future when they look at their photographs they want to remember the feelings that these places elicit for them.

The other day on one of my photo sessions I met a lovely family. During the photo shoot I was shown a fabulous tree that had been their daughters special place. She would sit in a perfect hollow and read for hours. I turned to the college bound daughter and said, “That would be a great photo of you up there now, but I know you are all dressed up and you don’t want to get dirty.” Her reply was “Oh, I would love that.” And proceeded to climb up the tree. We took several photos as well as a few of her on her childhood slide.

This is why I love being a family photographer. I am always meeting many interesting and creative individuals that make my job fun and memorable.
