S Family | Lydia Mountain Photo Session
This family was one of my first family sessions when I moved to Charlottesville. I met this friend through our local church. She said she'd been looking for a good family photographer for a while, so I came at just the right time! She wanted a session to document their growing family since the arrival of their sweet-as-can-be daughter who was about a year old here. We had the session at Lydia Mountain, where the couple got married a few years prior. I love when locations have significance to my clients!
There's a little playground behind the small cabin where they had their reception in. It was perfect to play in once her daughter got a little bored of posing. Playing is always my favorite. The white dress she is pictured in above was actually my mother's as a child, so circa the 1950s. I just loved this family session at Lydia Mountain, not too far outside of Charlottesville and usually secluded. We didn't see anyone else there. This session was actually in July believe it or not! Summer sessions are totally doable!
