I’m excited to share with you a heartwarming milestone family session at Studio Muse in Norfolk, Virginia. This session was extra special, as it celebrated the first birthday of their adorable baby girl while capturing precious family moments. I love that they took the opportunity to capture their little one celebrating her first birthday and updated their family photos at the same time. Moms and families are busy. This is a great way to capture what life looks like right now without adding extra stress to your already full schedule. 

Milestone sessions are really special. Babies grow and change so much in their first year of life and, as you look back it, feels like it flew by. They were right when they said the nights are long, but the years are short. I want all the mamas I work with to be able to look back at their photos in twenty years and remember exactly what it was like during this time. It is also always important to me to document the sweet bond between members of the family, especially moms and their children. This is why I tend to keep things more relaxed and less posed. 

I must say, I absolutely adored their outfit choices! Their styling was on point, allowing the focus to remain on them as a beautiful family. I’m always a fan of neutral, natural colors for shoots, as they effortlessly coordinate without looking too uniform. The pink dress chosen for the sweet birthday girl added the perfect touch of charm and highlighted her special milestone.

Studio Muse in Norfolk, Virginia, served as the perfect backdrop for this milestone family session. Its versatility offers many different neutral backgrounds that allow your family to shine through. I’ve grown to love this space for its ability to complement any style or theme.

As a Virginia Beach photographer, I loved capturing every moment of this sweet family. From their little one’s adorable giggles to tender family embraces, every moment was filled with warmth and love. It’s moments like these that remind us of the beauty of family bonds and the importance of cherishing each passing moment. 

If you are looking to stop time for just a moment and capture your own milestone family session, I would love to help you document it. Pictures are so important to our connection to our life experiences. Here’s to celebrating milestones, capturing memories, and cherishing the love that binds us together.
