For the Cioara Family Session we head out to the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens which are so beautiful to snap some photos of this adorable little family! We even had some wild life (geese and ducks) join us on our little adventure. We really had a great time snapping pictures of their handsome little boy! Here are some of my favorites from the session:

We had he whole family out for this session – It’s always fun when grandma and grandpa can join your photos especially when we can get some great candids of the kids playing. For the Keast Family session we had a fun time all goofing around together in Cathedral Park. I love shooting in Cathedral Park because theres so many ways to play with the architecture of the bridge and we get to mix up the scenery going from park to beach all right there! Enjoy some of my favorite shots from this session:

For this session we headed out to Hoyt Arboretum for some shots of the Bryan Family. It was a crisp day with  a few clouds but we still had a great time goofing around in the park. The tree they are sitting in is one of my favorite for taking pictures in the park! The way the light hits it is perfect, defiantly worth a visit. Here are some of my favorite photos from the session:
