Scott + Emily have been in front of my camera before so it was very special to photograph them once again, but now as a family of three! Emily did an incredible job creating a simple but adorable nursery for Emmett. That mobile is just perfect. This boy is such a sweetie and clearly born to be in front of the camera like his parents. I am so excited for these guys - it will be the greatest adventure raising this cutie!
They've been sailing as a family for years and spend countless evenings and weekends on the water together. I was so thrilled to be able to join them on one of their outings for a family session and gracious! I can't get enough of these film images! Its so inspiring to watch a husband and wife in their element as a team like this. They were amazing together - always anticipating the other and on the ready for what the other would need next. Truly the picture of teamwork in marriage! The evening couldn't have been more perfect for an October day. Though on the warm side, I was informed that meant less wind and calmer waters than typical for this time of year - which definitely made it great for photos!

I believe this was the hardest blog post to-date for narrowing down images...and I'm so excited to share them! My aim during sessions is always to capture the the significance of the season in a timeless and artistic way and these film images did just that. What an honor to spend time in southwest Virginia with Ashley and Robert when baby Jack was only a few days old! Ashley is an extraordinary family and milestone photographer and seeing her and Robert thrive in parenthood was so special. And Elle Mae, their gorgeous Golden Retriever was SUCH a sweet girl with all the chaos of a new baby. You can tell they are going to be very good friends as Jack grows up. :)
