Virginia Beach Family Beach Portraits - Hampton Roads Family Photographer

We're still playing catch up with so many sessions to share...including this one from quite sometime ago at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.  This sweet family travels to Va. Beach annually from South Carolina and Alabama. We met them for a sunrise session in August at the 1st Street Jetty.  You'd expect it to be hot, right?  Well, it was a bit too breezy and chilly for the littles!  Me?  I was happy to not be sweating.  LOL  It was a perfectly beautiful morning with such a loving, fun family! Absolutely delightful, and so much joy in this family!

Virginia Beach Family Beach Portraits - Hampton Roads Family Photographer

Virginia Beach, specifically the Great Neck area - I've been to the area twice in the last month to photograph clients. This morning I made the trek to photograph this beautiful family!  Unfortunately, we were missing some family members (from out of town and ill), but we continued without them.  It was hot!  The littles, all boys, were not exactly excited about family portraits, and neither were their dads.  So no, we did not have the best of conditions.  Sound like your fears when you consider doing family portraits? They planned to do the portraits in grandma's backyard.  Working as quickly as I could, we decided on the front yard once I arrived.  While everyone was indeed hot, they didn't melt.  I baked in the sun, however, and felt as though I was melting.  :D  And drank lots of water!  The boys lived.  The moms (and dads) made it through.  And they now have lovely family portraits! And seriously, just look at the matriarch of this beautiful family! I've been photographing these sweet kids since they were little.  I can't get over how grown they are!  Here are a few from the very first time they were in front of my camera almost 8 years ago at Norfolk Botanical Gardens. And some from the rest of the family over the years.  (Please don't judge - I obviously had some ...

We met the lovely 'F' family in Corolla for beach portraits this past summer.  This beautiful family travels to the Outer Banks of North Carolina each year from NJ - it's tradition!  This month this incredibly sweet couple is celebrating their 50th anniversary and chose family pictures to commemorate this special occasion rather than the usual party.  I love this! I so enjoyed every phone conversation leading up to and following our time together.  It felt like I was talking with family each and every time, a testament to how amazing they truly are! Extra special is that I would speak with them as a couple.  They would each get on an extension.  How sweet is that?!The kids and grandkids live about an hour away from their grandparents, yet they are a very close family and spend lots of time together. The girls are major softball players from what I’ve been told. Like world series players! There is a world series in Virginia they've attended. Their dad was almost a professional baseball player and helps with coaching the girls. Grandma is so proud of all of them!Family photos are so important to all in this family!The kids and grandkids do family pictures each year for Christmas cards.  Grandma creates albums for each grandchild every year for their birthday. As soon as I heard this, I knew they were the perfect clients. These Outer ...

The super sweet and beautiful Blechacz family vacationed here in the Outer Banks a few weeks ago. It had been a couple of years since their last visit, and Bethany was looking to update their family portraits.  You can find their sneak peek here. When they last visited, Bethany and Phil had just begun the process of adopting their oldest son from China.  These are their first beach portraits as a family of eight.  Enjoy their video!  (Be sure to view in HD!)  :) We are so honored that Bethany chose us to document their family once again!  We had such a lovely time and hope they did as well.  We hope to see you again soon, Blechacz family!

Did you know....not all family beach portrait sessions actually occur ON the beach? We did a family beach session for the 'B' family two years ago.  They came to OBX all the way from Wisconsin!  Having just adopted their second child from China, little 'J', they used their time in the Outer Banks to bond and attach.  I thought Bethany and Phil were brilliant to plan a vacation specifically for this very important time for their family.  They also planned dates for each of them with the individual children, something I can only imagine means so much when you have five children.  Bethany told me at that time they were just beginning the process of adopting again. So here they are, two years later, now a family of eight.  They now have a teenager, and decided it was time for some more family bonding in OBX.  I was thrilled when Bethany reached out to let me know they were returning.  It wasn't easy to schedule - I had a single date available during their two week stay.  Oh how I prayed it wouldn't rain!  The weather has really not played well with my already packed schedule!  :( Bethany planned the most adorable wardrobe.  Vintage boardwalk was the theme, and she pulled it off brilliantly!  So of course, we headed to a boardwalk for the session.  ;)  While it didn't rain (thank ...
