The Smiths | Warrenton, Virginia Family Photographer

I met the Smith family for the first time last week, and despite the fact that we had to postpone their original session date due to rain, I could not have imagined a prettier day for their first family portraits! šŸ™‚ As we were situated against the stone wall half way through our time together, we were in awe of God’s creation! The light from the sunset graced across the rolling hills behind them as the cows were grazing. Off in the distance was a cloud of birds creating waves, lifting up and soaring down along the horizon, as if the rolling hills were moving. It was beautiful! What was most beautiful from our time together was getting to know this lovely family. šŸ™‚

The smith family are gentle and SO sweet! It wasn’t long before I could tell how much Zach and Chelsea were so thankful to be Ayla’s parents. šŸ™‚ That little girl is so loved and adored!!! It was a great honor to document their official first family portraits, as a family of three!

Thank you, Smith family, for being flexible and working around the rain!! I had the BEST time getting to know you all! I hope to run into you guys at the Brick in the near future! šŸ˜‰ Enjoy checking out some of my personal favorites from our time together!!
