Iā€™m Stephanie Messick, a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Warrenton, VA.

I was happy when the Faulkner family reached out to me to have fall family portraits done and celebrate their little one’s first Birthday! šŸ™‚ I am sure her sweet parents realized that the time with her was going by way too fast. What better time to capture this current stage of her life than now? šŸ™‚ Photography can do that! I was so thrilled our calendars allowed us to meet up and connect. After all, it’s the busiest season for photography in Northern Virginia ā€¦ and also my favorite. šŸ™‚ Despite it being so crazy. And the Faulkner family couldn’t have picked a more perfect fall day for their portraits!!!

As we wandered around while taking photos, I got to chat and get to know them a little better since it was our first time meeting. šŸ™‚ I love how my business connects me with the sweetest couples/families!! I was grateful the Faulkner family was able to make this session happen with Bryan’s crazy travels. I loved briefly talking to him about Alex and my recent adventures in Thailand after he mentioned that he will be visiting soon. I know it cannot be easy to travel while having a family back in Virginia, but I’m sure these photos mean so much, especially during those times when distance stands in between them. <3 These photos make me so happy!

Thank you, Faulkner family, for having me photograph this time of your life while Arya is a baby. <3 Looking through some of my many favorites below makes me smile! What sweet memories to cherish forever, and I cannot thank you all enough for entrusting me to document your family portraits. šŸ™‚ Enjoy some of my favorites!!
