Next year we will be celebrating a decade of photographing this family. Every time we do their Christmas photos, I love to go back and see just how much the kiddos are grown. I even get to have the youngest three as my Spanish students. Watching them run around and be themselves was a lot of fun! Enjoy!

Podgayskiy & Shumeyko | Family Fall Session

November 06, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
I don't know if I'm just getting older, and appreciation God's nature even more. Or this fall was truly one of the most beautiful ones Virginia has ever had. Either way, I'm so glad we got a chance to capture our own family photos in this gorgeous foliage. We normally have a beach session, but this year we decided to mix it up! Enjoy!

The most amazing things happened at this photo shoot! As we were driving up the Blue Ridge Parkway, it was raining. As soon as we arrived at Raven's Roost - the overlook we were supposed to take these scenic photos at, it stopped raining. However, as soon as we were finishing up the session, the rain started pouring again. The timing was just perfe...

We almost didn't make this session while we were vacationing! But just ONE day before the photo shoot, we arranged the time and place for this fun crew to have their family photos taken. From 3 different states all over the US, Massanutten Resort was the place to host their reunion as well as this sweet couples' 50th wedding anniversary!
