October 8, 2020 - A National Arboretum Family Session to Remember

By Becca Allen, Becca Allen Photography

About This Session:

I first met this family 2 years ago when their son was born and was so thrilled to learn that he would soon become a big brother. It is such a joy to reconnect with families – to see who their little ones have become and to see mom and dad grow as parents. We chose an early morning session at the National Arboretum to capture a bit of the early fall colors amongst the grove of state trees as well as the spectacular columns which were part of the United States Capitol from 1828 to 1958. I love the history and scale of the columns as they tower over this little guy and his family and the light that shines through them was truly special.
