    We love incorporating just the children in fun and unique ways. In these family photos, having the boys lay together on the ground not only created a unique family picture, but also helps calm fidgety boys.

    Sunset portraits at the Hermitage Museum is something that should be a part of everyone’s family pictures. With the breathtaking views of the river and the gorgeous light from sunset with create an amazing portrait.

    We love the chance to capture a family’s life in the form of family portraits.  Taking outside family portraits is always fun especially when you have a place so close to the studio like the Pagoda Gardens in downtown Norfolk.  We had a chance to do just that with the Curry family.  There was a chill in the air, but the sun was shining, which made for a wonderful shoot.  Check out the Curry family’s outdoor family portraits!
