2018 marks the coldest start to spring I can remember. After barely snowy, but still wet winter, it snowed on the second day of spring. I’m not usually one to rush out into the snow–but if I can take photos, that changes my perspective about the cold stuff.
With the snow prediction looming the day before, there was time to arrange a quick maternity photo session for our snow day. It was cold, of course–but worth it!
Northern Virginia recently got close to 3 feet of snow in a 24 hour period. That is a lot for our area. Lucky for me and my family, we had the most perfectly timed vacation planned. We left a day before the snow started and missed it entirely. I will spare you the details and won’t rub it in too much.
Facebook was showing me all of this epic snow and I had exactly zero envy for my friends back home shoveling. I did worry I might miss out on the opportunity for snow photos, though! I love to work in the snow. It’s the most beautiful reflective surface and the most perfect, blankety backdrop all at the same time.
I connected with this sweet family and thought I would just be taking some family photos in the snow. I had plans for my dad’s antique sled and a cute blanket scarf. Imagine my surprise when I noticed little Miss Melissa wiggling with dance moves in her photos. I asked if she would like for me to take any dance photos of her and she happily obliged. I loved every single bit of it. So much fun. Brother built the most epic snow-family of 3. I took my son out to see it later and he gasped in admiration “Ohhhh woooowwwww!” My little man loves snow men and was thrilled to see them.
I really enjoyed your session and hope I get to work with you all again!
