The weather was balmy, the bugs were swarmy, the lights were heavy, but the family was happy.

I've known Leigh Anne for a looooong time, and was quite excited when she asked if I was available for a family photo shoot that she was giving her mom as a Mother's Day gift.

We hit up a new spot in Leesburg, which turned out to be fabulous. The sun sets behind a wall of trees and golden fields. Birds are numerous (as are the bugs they feast on), and there was nobody else in sight.

We also went to downtown Leesburg, which is filled with 18/19th century architecture and the awesome "old town" that's hard to find.

Here are just a few of the photos from our afternoon. Hope you enjoy!
