The Smith Family | Mount Holly, Virginia

Today’s post is an exciting one, friends!  We are doing a little bit of a throwback to a session from May that has never been seen!! 

My friend Christine has been one of my most loyal clients since the beginning of this journey of mine.  I photographed her and her (now) husband’s engagement session.  I photographed and stood as a witness for their water front elopement.  I photographed her family for Christmas the first year that they welcomed their little girl to the world and I have photographed their family every May and every Christmas since then!!

This past May’s session was even more exciting than the ones before!!  Christine and Christopher were expecting their second child.  We decided to use part of the session for their daughter’s annual birthday shoot and use the second half of the session creating baby announcement photos!!  The family planned to print the images, then mail them to friends and family members to share their big news!

I have been so blessed to follow this famiy’s journey in so many magical moments and seasons of life.  Take a look at a few of my favorites from their session below.  Oh- and there is a HUGE surprise about this family at the end of this post!!  You’re not going to want to miss it!

. . . The Big Surprise . . .

After we photographed this shoot, Christine and Christopher found out that they were not only expecting another baby, but they were in fact having TWINS!!!!  Their daughter Mary Elizabeth will soon be a big sister to a little brother and a little sister!!  How exciting is that?!  I am so happy for this family to be growing by two more hearts.
