After so many rained out sessions, I was finally able to photograph this truly gorgeous family. Little Levi was such a star, and perfect for all of his photos. I think he was happiest at the end when he could finally really getting into the sand!
I really adored this session and was so happy the weather finally cooperated for us! Bring on all the beach sessions!!!! #kidssession #onlocationportraits #familyphotographer #goldenhour #Virigina #naturalportraits #familysessio
It was another perfect evening session at Fort Monroe, Virginia! We started in the historic section with aged brick and wood and ended on the beach for a splash down. Even with temps in the 90s, this family was all smiles and joy. It's always a pleasure spending the night with this beautiful family and I look forward to all of our shoots together! #kidssession #onlocationportraits #familyphotographer #goldenhour #Virigina #naturalportraits #HamptonRoadsPhotographer #family
I met the cutest little girl last night who was perfect for her spring beach session! She was so interested in all the seashells and helped add some new special ones to my collection. A really fun session :-) #springportraits #onlocationportraits #familyphotographer #goldenhour #Virigina #HamptonRoadsPhotographer #HamptonFamilyPhotography #toddlers #FortMonroe #outdoorphotography #SarahVillarrealPhotography #beachphotography #kids #kidssession
This absolutely gorgeous family wanted to do their fall family photos at the beach and it was amazing!!! The light was beautiful, even though it was a cloudy and dreary evening. The sun finally popped out at the end and gave us some gorgeous dramatic skies. I had so much fun with them! And, can you believe the color of that water?? Fort Monroe is my little photography secret and the little section I shoot on is usually empty. Win!
We still haven't done our own famil
I'm not going to lie, this is my number one favorite beach in Hampton Roads. Virginia Beach is beautiful, but this little beach has waves that are perfectly sized for my little kiddos, the water is clear and there is wildlife all around!
We come here as much as we can, and the best part is that it's usually empty. You feel like you're on your own private beach and the kids can run and play without worry. We ventured out last week to catch the last little bit of sun and
I truly adore these two (soon to be four!!) people and was THRILLED when they asked me to do a maternity session for them. Their love for one another and excitement for this next adventure enveloped our entire session.
Also, how gorgeous does she look in this dress?? Hot mama!
Love you both and thanks so much for trusting me with this amazing shoot!! #militaryfamily #FortStory #Families #portraitphotography #Virginia #HamptonRoadsfamilyphotography #maternityphotogra
I had an AMAZING night with this adorable brother and sister at the beach on Fort Monroe. They had me laughing and jumping in the water and just having an all out blast. These two cuties are 4 and 2...almost the exact ages of my little ones, so they totally got all of my Paw Patrol and Minnie Mouse references...I've never felt so cool :-)
This was such a fun shoot, too, because their mom just wanted to have photos capturing them at this point in their lives, with all of
Fort Story is now my FAVORITE place to catch sunset photos. The beach was practically empty and we could run and play and use every last beam of sunlight until it was time to pack up. I loved getting photos of this sweet family to celebrate their time in Hampton Roads. these kids were true water babies, and it was so fun to see them in their element, splashing in the waves. I was pretty excited for a sunset beach trip myself :-) The light was incredible, and we just dodged
For those lucky enough to hold a military base pass, there is a beach on the northern edge of Virginia Beach that is practically empty!
We took the kids to Fort Story beach today to scope out some family session sites and felling love with the big waves, pristine sand and adorable sand crabs.
I'm taking a family there next Sunday and can't wait to capture their evening on the water! #VirginiaBeach #FortStory #militaryfamilyphotography #beachphotography #HamptonRoadsfa
This is the questions asked by every single visitor we've had since we moved to Yorktown in Hampton Roads. My answer is always, "Well, that depends." There are beaches at pretty much every single turn and our house even backs up to a tiny tributary of the Chesapeake Bay.
As a midwesterner, it's pretty much my dream come true.
Also - WOW, the photography possibilities!! I've been known to bundle up my squirrely children in December and plop them down on the shore to
