I am a Reston, Northern VA Family photographer. My style is relaxed, come-as-you-are and bring your best smiles! Family photography can be challenging because no one works as a model, not everyone will smile at the same time, not everyone understand your need for natural light, not everyone will cooperate and know how to pose, etc. If there are toddlers in the photo, not everyone will be looking at the camera. Its very challenging but at the same time, its so much fun! I have the best time whenever Im doing a family photography session!
Family Photography FAQs
Here are some frequently asked questions about my Family Photography sessions:
Question: What do we wear?
Answer: Something comfortable and something you would be proud to wear in a Family Portrait photo thats hanging by the mantel in your parents house.
Question: Should we bring a change of clothes?
