I’m going to be totally honest with you and admit I am always a tad more nervous going into family sessions. I think a lot of it has to do with my personality and always wanting to feel prepared and knowing what to expect. You see, family sessions operate very differently than couples’ portrait sessions. For obvious reasons, little ones can be unpredictable and have a mind of their own. Trust me, I have one so I know! However, that doesn’t make these sessions any less fun or the galleries any less beautiful. In fact, some of my most favorite images have all come from family sessions. There is nothing quite like a mother or father’s love for their child and to be able to capture those moments is priceless.
Now let me tell you about my session with these three. As soon as I met Sarah, Walter and their precious little Charlotte, all my nerves quickly went away. They are seriously one of the sweetest families I have ever met. They all showed up with smiles on their faces and ready to just have a relaxing and fun time together. We had their session at the cutest farmers market in Virginia Beach, New Earth Farm. They have delicious produce and the cutest market store. You seriously need to go check them out!
I think my favorite part about this session was seeing little Charlotte’s face light up whenever she spotted a hen or a cat on the farm. She was so cute exploring a new place and having her pictures taken. I also loved taking some time during our session to capture some sweet moments between Sarah and Walter. It was beautiful to see how Walter so lovingly looks at his wife. Ahh I could have photographed them for hours!
So here are some of my favorites from this New Earth Farm family session! Happy Sunday!
