Last fall I photographed the Hetzel family lifestyle portraits at the Occoquan Regional Park, so when they contacted me again to come back to Virginia and capture their growing family for another session I couldn’t say no. I love shooting lifestyle photography, while I dont specialize in newborns my families who welcome a new baby have the opportunity to shoot a lifestyle newborn session with me. This session was fun, relaxed and just perfect. We allowed big brother the ease to play with his toy until he built up the curiosity to snuggle up with mommy and baby on the couch, this was first time she had ever held her two babies at once. Grandparents were cooking up something yummy in the kitchen when we head outside to play in the play yard daddy had just built. We finished with some portraits of just baby in the beautifully landscaped backyard and then sweetly posed in a handmade hat a friend of the family had made just for her. I was driving back to North Carolina with Caspian immediately concluding this session but before I could leave they sent me home with a bag full of “snackies” for the road and a heart full of love. The wonderful thing about a lifestyle session to me is not only telling the real story of a family’s lives day to day, what its like to feed, walk, tickle, kiss and play with the kids, snuggle up on the couch, the clutter, hobbies and quirks that fill your time, the most wonderful thing is the these families that allow me to come into their life become a little part of me even for just a glimpse of time, they become my friends, an extended family. Thank you Hetzel family for being who you are, I wouldn’t be who I am without you! & once again Congratulations!
