The Masts | Downtown Warrenton, Virginia Family Portrait Photographer

Gosh, I love this family so much! I have had the privilege of photographing the five of them for YEARS! In fact, I believe they were one of my first clients! šŸ™‚ They have seen my business start from scratch to living this dream! I’m so fortunate to have their support from year to year, especially since it gives us time to do a little catching up!! I believe one of our first sessions together happened in downtown Warrenton, so it was appropriate we returned to this very spot for their updated family portraits! The girls have grown up SO much over the years … I’m still in disbelief!!!

We met on a mild day (thank goodness nothing like what we are dealing with right now!), and fortunately for us, downtown Warrenton was on top of their game and decorated the historical area even before Thanksgiving Day! By the time we met up for their session, Christmas was in the air!! Naturally, we made sure to swing by the Christmas tree at the courthouse to get into the spirit! The girls were SUPER playful in front of the camera (can I just bring them with me to every session?!) and weren’t afraid to show off their personalities! Some of the individual photos of them are the SWEETEST!!! Melts my heart! <3 I found myself laughing consistently throughout the session because the two youngest reminded me SO much of when Keily was younger!! I can see how their uncle rubbed off on them!! HAHA! Love it!!! This sweet family is beautiful inside and out, and I’m so glad to have them in my life! These moments will be forever cherished as the girls grow up from year to year. <3

Thank you, Mast family, for yet another fantastic time together!! I adore you all so much from the bottom of my heart, and SO wish we saw each other more than just during these annual sessions! Hopefully, this blog post will get us to finally set up a wine date to hang out soon. šŸ˜‰ HAHA!!! Love you all!! XOXO!
