I made a lot of pictures in July. And even though I missed shooting a couple of days, I made up for it on others. With baby number two almost here, it suddenly became really important to me to document these last days of our being a family of three. It's such an exciting time, if still a bit nerve-wracking even though we've been through it once. :-) Here are a few of my favorites from this month.
Despite the heat (and pregnancy!), I love summer in Northern Virginia. There are so many things to do outside and plenty of respite from the heat inside or in the long evenings as well.
We love our local parks and access to the Potomac River. The variety at Jones Point Park in Old Town Alexandria (first three images) is fantastic, as is the family-friendly hiking at Mason Neck State Park in Lorton (last image).
Other than these mini adventures, it's just been nice to enjoy some leisure time at home and in our own neighborhood park.
