The Blanton Family. Oatlands Plantation, Leesburg VA
This past weekend I had the pleasure of catching up with the Blanton Family at the Historic Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, Virginia. You have no idea how amazing it felt to pick my camera up again since COVID19. I was so glad that we were able to capture their family photos before their son, Kenny, leaves for bootcamp for the Marines in a couple weeks. Talk about perfect timing!
I have known the Blanton family for many years as they used to be my neighbors across from the house I grew up in. I also captured Kenny & Shelby’s senior photos, so I was so happy that I was able to take their family photos as well! I will admit that seeing Kenny & Shelby all grown up makes me feel very old. When I first met them, Kenny was just 4 years old! Now he is going off into the Marines. I can’t get over how fast time slips by.
Luckily the rain held off for our session at Oatlands Plantation. This was actually my first time visiting Oatlands, & it was absolutely stunning. I will definitely have to visit again with my couples for their engagement sessions. Everywhere you turned it was so beautiful, even on a gloomy day. I can’t imagine how gorgeous this place would be with beautiful golden light! Hopefully soon I can pay another visit. Until then, enjoy some of my favorite images from the Blanton’s family session!
