VA Beach Newborns
After an expected stint in the NICU, Mama called to see if it was too late for newborn photos.
I say NEVER!
It was a whirl wind trip to Quantico during the week while Dad was at work/school.
Four young kids was totally my element! And this gorgeous, almost 100 year old house had all the light!
Photos Should Be Fun
I believe a photo session shouldn’t end in tears. If we can’t get in the groove withint 15 minutes, its just not going to happen. More time will not make it better.
In our minds, we want photo sessions to be perfect: the kids wearing what we picked, acting like angels, smiling daintily into the camera and following every gentle instruction.
But that’s not real life. That daydream wouldn’t give us the all-out laughter like a well timed poop joke. Or the tight squeeze and look of adoration from your youngest in a bear hug.
I run my sessions like a party: we get the “look at me” grandma shot first, and the rest is fun and games. I curate moments and laughter through play. We to turn a blind eye to misbehavior because consequences and corrections never made anyone smile more.

My Favorite Locations In Virginia Beach
My favorite outdoor place to do family photos in VA Beach is the North End at the beach. But I’ve got a list of good ones and what makes them work.
Even better are in home Saturday Sessions where we shoot in your home. Your home doesn’t need to be magazine worthy! Its much simpler because you’re not leaving the house or coordinating outfits.
