The Ballantines | Manassas, Virginia Family Portrait Photographer

You might recognize this beautiful couple from their maternity session earlier this year! 🙂 Not only are they super photogenic, but they are as sweet as can be!!! It’s funny because, on the way to the session, I thought to myself, “Oh, I cannot wait to photograph Joanna Gaines’ twin!!” 😉 Haha! I adore this family so much, especially after meeting their miracle baby, Milo! Oh my gosh, he stole my heart the second I met him!!! I’m sure you’ll be tempted to want to reach through your screen for those cute cheeks!!! HAHA! <3

We had a great day on Monday when we met for these portraits! 🙂 Although, it was FREEZING. I had to wear gloves … Maybe I’m a wimp, but these guys were absolute troopers handling the cold weather with ease. We had to run Milo to the car for him to warm up, but he continued to give us the cutest smiles throughout the session! *Cue the heart melt!* We plan to get together again in warmer conditions for family portraits and I cannot WAIT to get them in front of my camera again!!! <3

Thank you, Ballantine family, for making the most of our time together to create these special moments during our short time together. <3 You all are SO photogenic and I cannot wait to photograph your beautiful family again in the near future!!! XOXO!
