Fall family session in Old Town Alexandria | Casandra Lorraine | Family photographer in Alexandria

"BEEP!" A car goes, buzzing by.

In my mind I recall hearing my photography friends say that Alexandria is hard to drive in, and oh, the infamous parallel parking I heard about.

I have avoided this area to photograph in for almost 3 years, because of what I had heard.


I wish I would've never listened


This area of Virginia is absolutely gorgeous in the fall, the leaves, the colors paired with old rustic homes and cobblestone and brick- it was to die for.


Meet the Howards, this was their 3rd session with me- and their first was their maternity session in Culpeper, Virginia. Their second session was in their home for their newborn session, where I first met their little peanut. He is now MUCH bigger and I loved interacting with him for their family session- he is much more alert than when he was a sleepy little bub.



Hey there little fella! Yes, I did trip over the cobblestone, but you won't tell, will you?


When I shot this, the dad threw leaves from behind, a fun playful prompt for fall. Although only a few leaves appeared, I was able to do some photoshop magic and include more.


Ah, what a sweet moment. Little guy was definitely pulling on mamas hair though, ah- mom life.




This was such a gorgeous session, even on a cloudy day down there in Alexandria. I will absolutely be returning, even if I do have to parallel park (Or attempt at least)
