If you haven’t been to Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, VA, take this as your sign to go! Recently, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the Zerkle family amidst the blooming beauty of this magical place. It was the perfect backdrop for this sweet family session. Beautiful trees, lots of flowers, the place had it all!
Maverick and Ripley, the dynamic duo of the Zerkle family, brought their infectious energy on the sunny morning. Maverick’s love for monster trucks and games instantly sparked a bond between us, as we embarked on a fun-filled adventure together. Meanwhile, I playfully worked my magic to capture those sweet smiles from baby Ripley, who had a more serious demeanor. The interactions between Maverick and his dad, Ed, were some of my favorites though, especially when they spontaneously broke into rap. This was the easiest way to get a big grin from Maverick. He just loved it!
While Maverick and his dad were being silly, Talia was soaking up the little moments with baby Ripley. Amidst the vibrant blooms, she delighted in the simple joys of babyhood. Together, they interacted and explored, as Talia embraced the joyous chaos of parenting. In the midst of all the fun, Green Spring Gardens became their playground where they made memories that will bring smiles for years to come.
In the end, the Zerkle family’s photo session at Green Spring Gardens was a delightful adventure filled with laughter and love. From Maverick’s enthusiasm to Ripley’s adorable baby charm, their dynamic personalities were on full display. It was an honor to capture this season for them and make memories alongside their sweet fam.
I would be thrilled to join you at Green Spring Gardens to capture your own family’s memories. Please get in touch, and let’s make some magic together!
