Victoria: 8 Months- Northern VA Lifestyle Portrait Session

“today is your big moment. moments, really. the life you’ve been waiting for is happening all around you. the scene unfolding right outside your window is worth more than the most beautiful painting, and the crackers and peanut butter that you’re having for lunch on the coffee table are as profound, in their own way, as ‘the last supper’. this is it. this is life in all it’s glory, swirling and unfolding around us, disguised as pedantic, pedestrian non-events. but pull off the mask and you will find your life, waiting to be made, chosen, crafted.”
– shauna niequistNorthern_VA_Lifestyle_Portraits_Vanhusen01our morning for victoria’s session was filled with sword fights, walking lessons, ninja turtles, snuggles in bed, and so many baby giggles… all of the very best things their typical weekend morning consists of :)
