Cozy Winter Family Session | Leesburg, Virginia Family Photography

I'm forever grateful to families who brave the cold with me. This family agreed to hold their session on a day the wind chill put the real feel right around 20 degrees...yikes. Keep in mind the day before this session it was a glorious 70 degrees. If the weather could go ahead and make up its mind that'd be great. My meteorologist skills are not up to par and I'm the worst at choosing the warm days for my sessions. 

The silver lining to cold, windy sessions is that families get to snuggle close together to keep warm and the resulting photos are always just the sweetest. For example, at one point I directed the family to cuddle close together on the stairs and then I asked big sister to give her little sister a kiss on the cheek. Well, try as they might they could NOT figure out how to do that. Little sis was so excited to kiss her big sister she just kept turning to kiss her right back. It was adorable and SO much better than the photo I had imagined in my head! This is what I love most about lifestyle photography: I can give ten families the same exact prompt and get ten completely different photos as each family makes it their own!
