Ashburn, Virginia Fall Session | Northern Virginia Lifestyle Family Photography

October is off to a fantastic start! Fall sessions are now in full swing and I’m so thrilled to have kicked busy season off with this sweet family. We chose to take their family photos at The Barn at One Loudoun, apparently on the night of homecoming for no fewer than three local high schools. Shooting around that many other families and teens was challenging for sure, but this family was such a great sport and The Barn did not disappoint. I especially love the playground there; it is perfect for letting the kids relax a bit during our time together and the fact that it’s made from natural wood makes it great for capturing portraits as they play!

The kids each brought their special toy along to their family session, which is not only allowed but encouraged! Having their comfort object nearby helps kiddos feel more relaxed in a situation that not everyone is, and it also gives me a chance to capture a special part of their personality. Obviously these two are very interested in cats and dinosaurs.! Here are a few of my favorites from our fall family photo session!
