Fall Golden Hour Family Session | Ashburn, Virginia Lifestyle Photography

Well, my busy fall season is off to a fabulous start! I first met the Chao family last year, when mom was pregnant and big brother was just a year old. It was wonderful to see them again this year, now with two young boys.

This next photo is one of my favorites from our whole evening together. To most, and even to me, it just looked like this little baby liked to play with his mom’s hair. But then mom told me why he was doing it. When he gets sleepy, he puts one hand in his mouth and one in his hair. Unless his mom is holding him, then that hand goes to her hair. These are the little details I think are so important to remember. How long will he curl up with a fistful of mom’s hair to fall asleep? Certainly not forever. But, this photo is forever, and will hopefully bring back sweet memories years from now.

Oh how I love families who have a sense of humor! I guess you have to when you have two boys two and under! Their last name is Chao, making them the Chaos. So this might just be the most perfect shirt for them, or any family ever!

Chaos. Complete disorder and confusion.
