Portraits of my kids | Ashburn child photographer

August 12, 2011

Two of my children have July birthdays, which means new portraits for the portrait wall. I take one of each child during their birth-month and that photograph stays for the year. July was a busy month, so I decided to attempt both of their portraits together one evening. We got a later start than I had wanted so I had to work quickly with the remaining light I had … but having a three year old to photograph doesn’t really allow working quickly. 😉

I knew I wanted to get them walking on the road, so that’s one of the first things I did, as that part gets dark quickly.

I love this one, and will have it framed on my wall

This is Jordan’s “official” 8 year portrait, I’m eager to get it on the wall

I totally love this one too – she’s so cute how she’s into this phase of side ponytails and headbands.

Then it was time to try to capture Jack … he wanted to go home, and he definitely didn’t want to look at the camera. I enlisted Jordan’s to help me get him engaged …

I love her expression here

Just a cute outtake

Lots of playful interactions like this

And a TON of 3-year-old boy expressions

This is the closest I got to the portrait I was looking for … but at this point the sun was mostly gone, and there’s just not enough light (looks fine on screen, but printed it’s not as nice)

Jack’s portraits will wait another day …

On the way out of the park, I saw the beautiful sky and knew I wanted to get a silhouette … Jordan was ready to go home, but she humored me so I could get this shot

The moon was full, so I also got this on the way out too …
