Beautiful Winter Colors on a Cold day {Waldorf, MD candid family Photography by Fotos by Nadine}

This session has been planned and rescheduled 3 different times....and because everything happens for a reason we ended up shooting on this gorgeous winter day! 

The Make up Session

We start each family session off with an amazing pampering make up session for mom - it really is one of my favorite parts - we get to talk while she gets pretty and can relax - it's a great time for all! Gorgeous make up and hairstyling was done by Naowshaba Ferdous (instragram: @girltimebeauty)


Moving on to the first part of the session - inside the home and in some formal wardrobe!

Little man showed me some dance moves too :)
Then we moved outside - it was a beautiful sun filled winter day and all we had to do was walk down the street to a gorgeous field! I just LOVE the colors!

Carrying on a tradition in Old Town {Alexandria, VA Family Photographer Fotos by Nadine}

This beautiful family came to me through an amazing event that I photographed a few weeks ago - Rock Paper Cocktails, a benefit event to raise money and awareness for women's cancer. Vicky generously purchased her session at the auction to help the fundraiser. 

We were able to align our schedules pretty quickly so that these images are ready to go for the holidays ;) This family has been taking their photos of the last few years in Old Town and love it so much that we carried on that tradition - it is a beautiful spot!

It was a gorgeous day but also one of the coldest so far in this fall of 2014 - luckily the two boys were in an excellent mood to play around and race with me ;) We had a great time! 

Thanks again to Tyra Richardson for an outstanding job on mom's make up - you are amazing!

This session finally happened...after we had to reschedule it from the Spring into the Fall it was almost not going to take place again....the weather forecast was rainy, cold and windy.

A chilly fall day...{Alexandria, VA Family Photographer}

It was a chilly fall day....the chilliest one so far. And by the end of the make up session for mom we were all pretty cold. But oh my goodness, was it a gorgeous day! 

The wonderful make up was once again done by the very talented Bridgette Chavis

We did have the most stunning light to capture all the love between these 3. I am so excited to be photographing them again in the new year when their little guy is here!
