Multi-Generational Family Portraits in Sandston

I was so excited when Jenna contacted me saying her extended family was going to be in town and she wanted to schedule a family portrait session. We headed to nearby Donohoe Park in Sandston, VA where her kids excitedly told me they knew of some spots along the trail that would be perfect. They couldn't have been more right!

 This close-knit trio was so much fun to shoot!

 Like most moms, Jenna mostly wanted pictures of her kids. But I really loved this one portrait of Jenna where the kids aren't the central focus. I love that it captures Jenna's strong, sassy single mom side.

 Everyone was worried that little Finn was going to be fussy shooting so close to bedtime, but this cutie couldn't have been more cooperative! Just look at that gorgeous grin!

 The fearless trio Hakuna Matata'd their way across logs and creeks to get to the perfect spot. This adventurous family has my heart for sure. :)

 The grandkids! These happy kiddos couldn't get enough snuggle time with their baby cousin. When Ellie and Jam weren't in the shot, they made the best photographer's assistants--holding reflectors and making faces to make Finn crack up! Such a sweet family!

 We wrapped up this session in a way that uniquely suited this family. They're all about being fun and silly and together. What better way to end the session than a final group slide on the playground!

I was honored to spend some time with this sweet family and help them capture this time in their life!
