I Want To Tune In!

Neil flew all the way down from New York to CHO (Charlottesville’s airport) to spend a weekend with his sister Maya who is currently a third year at the University of Virginia. I’d heard so much about Neil from Maya, it was great finally being able to meet him! These two get along so well as brother and sister and from these photos you can tell how much they genuinely enjoy spending time with each other.

They caught the Lawn at a gorgeous time when all the leaves were turning yellow in the background.

I love these candid ones of them attempting to make funny faces at each other and making each other laugh instead.

We had a good time scouting out gorgeous fall trees that we could incorporate into their shoot. And of course no photo shoot is complete without finding the perfect bunch of leaves to mess around with.

I hope you guys had a good time taking these pictures, I know I certainly did! It was so nice to finally meet Neil and I hope the Singh’s got the Christmas card cover photo that they were looking for!
