The Ramseys | Middleburg, Virginia Family Portrait Photographer

For the past five years … Yes, pinch me, FIVE years (not sure how time escaped so quickly!) … The sweet Ramsey family have been supporting my business year after year. I could not be more grateful! Not only do I enjoy photographing them and their personalities, but I love watching the two littlest ones grow and develop into who they are today! I remember the first session, Zac wasn’t the biggest fan of having his photo taken. To this day, I cannot say he loves it, BUT I can definitely tell the difference over the years as he has adjusted. I mean, he was so willing to do whatever he was asked to do last Friday with a smile on his face!! I was very impressed! 🙂 It was also fun catching up with the little, adorable Luke! He’s very athletic and loves sports, like hockey! Speaking of Luke, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dude!! He just turned six and celebrated with friends this past weekend with a big blow-up obstacle course! What a fun and great idea!!! I might have to do that for myself in the future. 😉

What I love most about this family is how personable they are. After we were done photographing around downtown Middleburg, it was so nice hanging out/catching up with Beth Ann and Ricky. 🙂 They are so sweet and special, and I’m very grateful that our mutual friends connected us years ago!!!! And gosh, the Ramseys are always so gracious and encouraging! They have been a blessing in my life, and I look forward to other opportunities in the future to stay connected with them! They are even talking about coming down to Destin, Florida next year for their family portraits on the beach while I’m down there!!! 🙂 YESSSSS! They are the best! <3 Love this family so much!

Thank you yet again, Ramsey family, for always brightening my year with your continuous support!!! <3 Gosh, we ended up with the most beautiful July day for your portraits!!! I love how different these photos are, regarding the backdrop, compared to the sessions we have done in the past. 🙂 Thank you for always making the most of our time together, as always! I love seeing you all so happy, and I wish you the absolute best this year! Enjoy this preview from our time together!!

After the grandchildren knocked over their grandmother, my first instinct was to make sure she was okay! But as soon as I saw that big smile, I knew this was a photo op. 😉 Haha! Love it!!!
