An October early Fall session | Alexandria, VA Family Photography

I consider October and November to my Fall season. The mood changes from being focused on back-to-school to crisp, autumn days filled with Fall activities. This session at Green Spring Gardens kicked off my October with a bang. The beautiful gardens have new plants emerging and summer plants dying. This magical location is a mix of new and old at Fall and I love it. The leaves are just beginning to turn and they give off the perfect Fall vibes.

This family was beyond laid back. I knew it immediately when I commented on their great outfit choices to which she replied “We just threw them together an hour ago”. I couldn’t get away with that if I tried. We would all look a hot mess. It’s not because I obsess over the outfits, but rather than I am not that stylistic when it comes to coordinating all our clothes. Do what works for you! The is momma decided stressing over clothes was not worth it for her. And look, I think their color and style choices were on point. 

This time of year in Northern Virginia can be hectic, but is also my favorite time of year. I’ve lived here for 25 years at the time of writing this. The smell of leaves falling or a late afternoon rain brings back childhood memories. I am glad this fun and amazing family took time to capture this time in their lives. Their little one is in the stage of changing quickly as he grows, catch it on camera and preserve it!
