A Chesapeake Arboretum Family Engagement Shoot | Chesapeake, Virginia
This past Wednesday the weather was - thankfully - cooler than it had been in days, and I met Evan, Olivia and Emersyn at the Chesapeake Arboretum to do a joint engagement/family session. Evan and Olivia have been together for 6 years and Emersyn is their adorable 9 month old daughter!! To say that Emersyn stole the show would be a little bit of an understatement - this little girl is absolutely precious and has the most infectious smile! I have no doubt that her parents will have their hands full for the next 18 years or so ;)
Olivia had said that they wanted pictures of the whole family but also a few that focused on just her and Evan and the excitement of their engagement! We started out with pictures of the three of them together, and let me tell you - the love that those new parents have for each other and for their little girl was so evident and so sweet it truly made my heart smile! With every additional session I have involving children, I am able to see more and more the incredible and unconditional love that comes with parenting. I'm not at a place in my life where I'm ready for that yet, but I honestly grow more excited for it with every passing year! I also can only pray that my child is as sweet as this little one!!! When the time came for Olivia and Evan to have some time alone in front of the camera, Emersyn, being the absolute doll that she is, very happily and quietly sat next to me in her stroller (I'll be honest, though, quite a few cheesy puffs were involved :)).
I was so excited to take these pictures after already getting to know Evan and Olivia when I took photos for them just a few weeks after Emersyn was born - I’ll have to share those on the new blog one day :) One of my favorite things about this job is getting to form lasting relationships with my clients, and this sweet family is no different! I’m already looking forward to their wedding in Virginia Beach next July!
The giggles honestly didn't stop :)
Look at these two beauties - Evan is one lucky guy!!
The sweetest couple in the most gorgeous light!
