Last year before winter set in and decided to never leave again – I offered up discounted mini sessions (if you followed me on instagram – @carlettathegreat you would be in on it!) and this sweet family was one of my sessions.

I love seeing kids in front of my camera – watching their sweet little faces as parents desperately try to make them laugh and smile (spoiler alert: you can’t make them do anything!) is fun for me. After a long stretch of rain, we got the most beautiful day and made a last minute switch to take these photos in a local DC park that the family used to live close to and it was such a good and fruitful decision!
