Running Through the Meadow (Fairfax, VA)

This is one of my absolute favorite families to photograph - four kids, all totally unique, and all totally awesome. But year we had was a bit of a bumpy start - after a long day, the last thing the kids felt like doing was dressing up for photo shoot. 

So we started easy - going through jewelry boxes, playing with magnatiles, exploring everyone's favorite toys. And by the time we headed outside for family photos - everyone was ready to run, and play, and (most importantly) to LAUGH.
