Virginia Fine Art Lifestyle Photographers | Michael and Photography

Rachel and her hubby Nathan are two of the most fortunate people we’ve met,; of them it can truly be said, “their cup runs over.”

They have four beautiful children together.  Four healthy, beautiful children filled with energy and life.

That would be enough, but on top of that, Rachel and Nathan are such an amazing team.

When he’s not working in DC, Nathan is just the type of cool dad + husband every guy should aspire to be.

In addition to being a full-time mom, Rachel also happens to be an fantastically talented photographer, a lawyer, and as of recently, the founder of an amazing studio!!

(Seriously, especially if you’re a photographer, go check Rachel out!)

For their family session in Fredericksburg, Rachel invited her parents to come along. It made it all the more special to have 3 generations in front of the lens. <3

It was important, especially as I (Mike) am a former kindergarten teacher, to keep our session loose, fun, and “lifestyle.”

Basically we just let this awesome family do their thing and we came along for the ride to take pictures!

Some people ask us, “How can you shoot family sessions on film?” Our only answer: “How can we NOT shoot family sessions on film?!”

Rachel and Nathan, your family is just delightful. Thank you for giving us the pleasure of capturing these moments on what turned out to be such a perfect spring day.

Thank you to the staff of Chatham Manor for hosting us!
