lazy sunday morning | storytelling family session | arlington, virginia

"There is nothing like staying home for real comfort" ~ Jane Austin

One of the things that I find most challenging as a parent is remembering how to slow down.  Reminding myself that rushing from one thing to the next is not what my children need.  And even though I think we all make attempts to remove the busyness from our lives, there is really an art to slowing down.

Brittany and her family have a beautiful art to savoring, respecting and cherishing weekend time.  They've put their heart and soul into creating a strong, gorgeous home from (literally) the ground up, which I can tell is the foundation of the amazing future for this family.

Capturing their downtime together was every bit as fun as you'll see in the photos below.  These are my favorite moments, the ones when I capture families being who they are, Sunday mornings and all.
