Light and Happiness on a Cold Autumn Morning (Arlington, VA)

Live in the sunshine . . . drink the wild air.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

I originally scheduled photos with the B family in September, but it rained. So we rescheduled. And it rained again. Finally, we found a perfect morning with gorgeous light and autumn trees. The only problem - it was less than 35 degrees outside. Luckily, these kids were AMAZING! We ran and explored and after awhile we didn't even feel the cold.

Plus, I LOVE when grandparents are included in family photos. Watching three generations play and laugh together is such a beautiful thing!
