ferrell family | manassas, va lifestyle session


I’ve known Melissa for over 10 years (which is crazy!) – I remember when she was pregnant with Emma and can’t believe that was 8+ years ago!  (I swear, Melissa prayed Emma’s red hair into existence – she was adamant throughout the pregnancy that she wanted a little girl with red hair, and that is just what she got!)  Since I moved to Blacksburg, time has flown by and I don’t know that I had seen Melissa at all over the last 7-8 years, until she reached out to me this summer about doing a family session!  And I’m so glad were were able to work it out, because it was so great to catch up with Melissa and I had so much fun getting to know Emma and Lacey!  They were a little skeptical of me at first, but I’m so glad they came out of their shells and let their personalities shine through by the time our session was over!  See for yourselves – here are some of my favorites from their session!!


How cute are these girls??


I just LOVE both of these next two images… faves!!


And this one of the girls together!  the sweetest.


These two… sweet & sassy.  😉


Gah, this black & white is another of my top favorites… I just love it!


Love this next shot of mama and her girls!  Another fave!


This next one cracks me up every time I see it!  Ever wonder how an 8-year-old and a 5-year-old make tough decisions (like who’s getting their solo photo taken first)?  See below…


And obviously, miss Lacey won.  How stinking cute is this little girl, y’all?


And I love this shot of Emma on the left!


Then the girls changed outfits for the last little bit of our session!


This black & white of Melissa and Lacey is one of my favorites!!  Love, love, love.


And two more faves!!  Love this sweet shot of Emma and Lacey together!


And I saved one of my very favorites for last – I love this shot of all three of these pretty girls together!!


Melissa, thank you so much for trusting me to capture this season of your lives.  It was such a joy and an honor, and I am so glad I got to meet and get to know your girls!  I hope we can do it again someday!  🙂
