A few weeks ago, we got the chance to drive out to the small town of Warrenton, NC for this beautiful family session!
Baby Charlie was two weeks young at this session, and wearing the cutest outfit. Meredith and Ben greeted us at the door of their absolutely gorgeous home and we started their session in their bedroom. Most of the buildings in Warrenton are historic and their home is no exception — so while their bedroom is usually upstairs, they moved everything to the living room in preparation for Charlie’s birth so that he wouldn’t keep up his older sister Ellen! Isn’t it beautiful? Photographing Charlie in the heirloom bassinet that has been passed down through Ben’s family for generations was so special — we love thinking about how many babies have been able to experience that little piece of family history.
At the session, 2-year-old took a little bit of time to warm up…that is, until she was given permission to play a little bit by jumping on the bed like it was her favorite new toy, a trampoline! Ellen spent a lot of time sweetly interacting with Charlie, but really came alive when she got to take us up to her room. There, she played peek-a-book with her circus tent, rocked on her horse, and played with her parents and Charlie. She’s certainly a gem!
Thank you, Meredith and Ben, for having us capture these photos of your sweet family! We absolutely loved meeting and working with you all. It’s so clear that there’s so much love in your home and we hope we’ll get to see you all again as Charlie and Ellen grow up!
