What a beautiful day to be a Washington DC photographer! This family session was a sunrise session and allowed me the rare opportunity to watch the sun rise above the Washington Monument. It was so breath taking and there’s nothing quite like that experience. I’m glad I was able to have that special moment while waiting for my clients to arrive. I enjoyed meeting this family so much!
The mom, C, the dad, J, the little brother, P, and the big sister, M, are such an impressive bunch. Especially, P and M! They were in DC before 6:00 AM and the kids behaved extremely well to have been awake so early. P and M followed every instruction wonderfully and delivered their biggest and brightest smiles for their photos! P and M’s incredible behavior completely baffled me and even strangers passing by commented on how wonderful they were.
This is one of the quickest full family sessions I’ve done and we were able to knock out these portraits in a little over thirty minutes because P and M were so amazing to work with. C and J rightfully rewarded P and M with donuts at the end of their session for participating so wonderfully. I absolutely love donuts! They would’ve been enough to convince me to behave well for an early morning session too! Great call, C and J! What a good tip to remember if you book an early sunrise session for family photos.
The entire session came together so beautifully. The location and lighting were phenomenal and paired perfectly with this stunning family. The Washington Monument in Washington, DC is the perfect location for a family session. I would highly recommend this spot to any of my clients interested in shooting here! I would love to go back and there truly is nothing like seeing that beautiful sunrise at such a historic location – trust me on this one, it’s worth the early morning session!
C and J – Thank you so much for allowing me to capture these special pictures for your family! Your family is beautiful and I know you are both so proud of P and M! You all are so laid back and easy to work alongside. You made this sunrise session effortless! I hope you can look back on these images and cherish your time spent in Virginia and Washington, DC after so many big moves. It was truly an honor to work with you.
