Claude Moore Park Family Session | Sterling Virginia Lifestyle Photography

One of the best feelings as a family photographer is when I meet a family and we hit it off so quickly it feels like we're old friends. That was exactly the feeling I got when I first met this sweet couple and their (almost) one year old little girl! Mama and baby stopped by my house to take a peek at my client wardrobe and borrow a few pieces (which is included in each family session booked with me, by the way!). I love the way this dress flatters mama and creates such beautiful movement in their photos, and the little floral headband helps to pull all their outfits together!

We met at Claude Moore Park in Sterling for a mid-morning stroll near the Heritage Farm Museum for family portraits, and then switched gears to take a few portraits to celebrate this sweet little girl's first birthday! Here are a few of my favorites from our time together:
