Helen’s Whimsical Field Portraits| Toms Brook, VA

What’s the best way to surprise your sister for her anniversary? Easy – work with your brother-in-law to schedule portraits for your niece while they’re away. That’s exactly what Sara did as we eagerly prepped for weeks to make sure sweet Helen’s photos were perfect.

After her aunt found her a beautiful dress, this happy lady effortlessly twirled about and chased her pup Sophie around the yard. She excitedly pointed to the moon throughout the evening and played hide & seek with her aunt in between photos. She told stories in gibberish and danced on the porch to “get her wiggles out.” Helen was adorned with stunning florals as she smiled sweetly — the sunlight wrapping around her soft curls.

As the sun started to diminish behind the tall mountains, Helen and Sophie headed back inside to enjoy a cold glass of milk and read stories before bed. I cannot think of a better way to spend a beautiful Virginia evening.
