Stunning Christmas Wreaths
I never considered myself a craft or art person. I am in awe of folks who can look at a pile of photos and paper and voila scrapbook it into art. Or people who see tubes of paint or rolls of yarn and visualize a vivid painting or a classic quilt. I have friends who can look inside a cupboard or fridge and create a four-course meal. I see the same things and create pizza delivery!
Fun Family-Friendly Fall Activities
Updated: September 24, 2020
Fall is usually a fun time of the year for taking fall rides, watching the leaves change colors, or taking in a football game. However, this year is different with COVID.
There are only like a billion things that make Fall one of our most favorite seasons! We are not sure whether it is the weather, the color of the season, or it is the crisp smell in the air which makes us want to spend more time with our families.
Wanting to spend time with our families and actually figuring out what to do during that time are two very different things. Keeping that in mind we have got some super fun activities that you can do this Fall to make the most of your family time.
It seems like many times guys are hesitant about portrait sessions, especially portrait sessions that are strictly about them. I think Michael might have been at first, too. However, his images show that it didn't take long for him to get comfortable for his Senior Portraits, and have fun! The key is to let guys stay masculine looking, and allow them to get comfortable in front of the camera. It's was great having Dad there as well to tell a few jokes.
We met in Manassas, Virginia at Manassas Battlefield Park. So we were surrounded by history and lots of canons. The park made a beautiful backdrop for his portraits. There are several fields with tall grass, old structures, and hills in the park.
It was also great watching him interact with his dog. You can tell that they have a close relationship.
Michael is truly a talented and a gifted young man and has offered many of his skills in playing several sports.
The love and happiness is written all over this Dad's face. This Dad was so excited about having portraits taken with himself and his new son. We met at Quantico Marine Base in Virginia for their portrait session.
