A Family Trip to the National Mall (Washington D.C.)

I've written about it before, but these are my favorite type of family photoshoots, where we take some photos at home and then we go on an outing. In my opinion, this way everyone relaxes and starts to feel comfortable in front of the camera. Plus, it gives me a chance to get to know the family better!

And I loved spending the afternoon with this family! The way they could joke and laugh at and love each other was a pleasure to see. The best moments are ALWAYS ALWAYS the real moments. And I'm so thankful that they all opened up to me and let me capture the magic between them.
