Family Portraits – Burnside Farms – Haymarket Virginia

This spring we partnered with a local farm that features Tulips, Daffodils and Dutch Irises every spring! My studio ran a special family portrait sitting that covered the cost of admission, after hours access to the farm, a proof CD of the images and an 8×10 leather hard cover book of twenty images. The special was very popular and we are running a other special in July featuring the same farm with their summer sunflowers!

The images below are but  a sample of one sitting, call us today and book your families session today!

Sara – Bull Run Bluebells

Bull Run Bluebells, Manassas National Battlefield Park

Every spring along Bull Run creek in Manassas National Battlefield Park, the Virginia Bluebells, Mertensia virginica, come alive and add a touch of beautiful blues and purples to the stream hiking trail. This year I shot a local Professional Ballet Dancer, Sara Gaydash, in among the bluebells, I love the moody dark feel of this image. I will be posting more from this shoot in the near future!
