I met the Rose family out at Bristoe Station Heritage Park bright and early on Saturday morning. Even though they are super busy packing and prepping for their move to Pennsylvania next weekend, they were able to squeeze a quick family session before leaving. And I am so glad they did--we had a perfect mix of clouds and sun, a really pretty walk through the park, and plenty of laughs as Katharine death-glared the camera as she got more and more tired (don't be fooled by her super happy face above--she heard a dog bark and it was her happiest moment of the day!)
I became friends with Whitney through our Crossfit gym in Gainesville about a year ago. We have spent plenty of days partnering on tough workouts and sweating through our clothes on 100 degree summer days, so it was really fun to see her interacting with her husband and kids in an adorable Jcrew dress instead of workout clothes. It was an honor to take their photos and I can't wait for their return back to VA in 2018. Bon voyage, Rose family!
