One of my favorite things to shoot as a Virginia Beach photographer is a family session to help capture memories. I recently got to hang out with wonderful parents who now have a 7-month-old baby boy. They were eager to document this unique stage in their lives after not having professional photos taken since their wedding in 2021.
They wanted a natural feel for this shoot and weren’t after anything overly fancy or too posed. We chose a location with different elements in Hampton, Virginia. It gave us the look of different locations with the ease of not having to travel with a baby. I loved their outfit choices for the day. They chose neutral colors that complemented each other and the location. The looks were simple and comfortable, which helped them to feel at ease throughout the shoot.
We can sometimes feel like we need a big event or milestone in order to document our lives. The truth is, there is such incredible beauty in the different stages our families go through. Ask any parent and they will tell you how quickly children change and grow. One minute you are marveling at a newborn baby, and the next they are off to kindergarten. Family moments are priceless. Kids grow up, families evolve, and it’s crucial to capture these different stages of your family’s journey.
As parents, we often find ourselves caught up in the whirlwind of life. It’s easy to forget how fleeting time with our children can be and how quickly we enter new chapters of life. Don’t underestimate the significance of preserving your family’s story through photography. Life moves quickly, especially when raising young children. Book a family session and let me help you document this era of your life. I would love the opportunity to help you capture candid moments with those you love most. Your family’s story is worth preserving!
