Its always a joy when there is history from a different season of life between myself and my current clients! I love more than anything seeing how we have grown and where life has taken us through the years!!
Kelsi and I are actually friends from high school!! We played sports together, attended the same classes, and even graduated together!! We lost touch from there but the beauty of social media these days is that its so easy to reconnect with old friends!!
When Kelsi originally reached out to me, she and her siblings were interested in booking a session as a Christmas gift for their parents. The trick was that between a total of five siblings all of different ages, different towns, and different stages of life- it was difficult to get them all together at a time that would work with my overloaded holiday session schedule!
We ended up settling on an early January session and the beauty of having it after Christmas was that we were able to make it into an entire family session with their parents!!
The family lives in the gorgeous Northern Neck waterfront town of Reedville. We started the session at their home on the beach just as the sun had begin to increase its strength. After a few shots on the beach, the family also wanted to take a few pictures down by The Stack and surrounding areas!
The air was cold that day and the sun was bright but this family was such a joy to work with!! There were so many laughs and giggles and so much joy wrapped into every image!! I loved the time we spent together and I cant wait to work with them again!! My favorites from their session are below!!
And just as a fun side note, you’ll have to head over to the @abbyhudsonphoto Instagram feed to check out the new AHP hashtag that was created while working on this blog and inspired by this session + so many others!! I am pretty excited about it!! haha!!
