Fall Family Session in Fredericksburg, VA - Gari Melchers Estate

I met Zenia when we both lived in California and we attended a book study together.  I instantly liked her straightforward way of looking at life, and her drive to do things well!  We both ended up moving eastward, to Virginia, and we've caught up twice now for some family photos (and I'm so glad we have!).  It's always great to catch up with friends and to include a photo session in the process! 

We started things off right away with a frame-worthy family portrait.

With two small boys, this family is full of laughter and shenanigans, and I love EVERY minute of it!

That smile... those dimples... pinch-worthy, yes?!

We settled the boys down on a blanket for a little brother time... and we may have used some candy as a little smile bribe.  ;)

Thanks, Anthony family, for braving the chilly, wet, overcast day to grab these moments on the camera!!  I definitely have marked this down as one of my favorite sessions of the year.
