Northern Virginia Shoot October 30, 2011   

This was my fourth time shooting this beautiful family!  Wow!!!  That is sooo hard to believe!  I truly love watching my client’s families grow and expand.  It’s always a bitter sweet time to see the little ones growing up and changing year after year!

Anyway, we had a fun time–as usual!  Such a fun family to work with!http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/holt11_1.jpg

  Belle Isle, Richmond shoot October 29, 2011   

This family was soooo patient.  Our shoots had been rescheduled twice and then rained out in the midst of our shoot.  We finally got a fantastic fall day with beautiful weather!  Belle Isle was a wonderful place to shoot–so much texture and lots of wonderful backdrops!

Loved these little guys to pieces–so cute and full of personality!  Enjoy your peek!http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/love_1.jpg

  little fella October 28, 2011   

This was my second time working with this cute little guy!  The first time he was just itty bitty!  He sure has grown since our last shoot–and is as cute as ever!

We started out at Monticello Trail and then headed up to Carter’s Mountain for some beautiful fall shots.  Here’s your sneak peek:

It was such a pleasure working with you all again!  Loving seeing your cute little one grow!  Happy fall!

  tea for two (twins!) October 4, 2011   

Yes, indeed! We had a tea party!  I don’t know about you, but, when I was little if I got to do something like this, I would have been in heaven!

http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/tea_blog2.jpg

Yummy!!!

These girlies mom won a contest on facebook a while back.  And, she won this free styled shoot–plus all of the digital images!  I don’t do contests very often on my blog or facebook, but when I do, I do them BIG!!  I love what we came up with.  So sweet and beautiful and natural!

Look at these two cuties…
