Williamsburg Extended Family Photo Session at KingsMill Resort

October 03, 2016  •  1 Comment

The older I get the more I realize that time is one of the most precious gifts we have. Sure, getting stuff is fun, but when virtually every minute of my day is accounted for I crave more time than anything else. That makes vacations and time with my family priceless to me. I love seeing families take vacations together here in Williamsburg and I am honored when they ask me to take their family portraits while they are here. They know this rare time when everyone is together is precious and worth remembering in a special way . 

I take a lot of care preparing to assure my clients can relax and let me do the work when it comes to their photo sessions. Sometimes that means I have to anticipate the weather, make a call,  and react - especially when they are from out of town and just rescheduling down the road or another weekend won't work. We had to move this session for a forecast that looked like rain, rain, and more rain for our original time. Thankfully we were all able to be flexible and still make this happen! 

They were staying at the beautiful Kingsmill resort along the James River and we pretty much did this session in their backyard there. Sometimes a simple location, happy family, and killer lighting are all you need for a beautiful photo session!

These kids were troopers! Still running around and full of silly energy! Of course this one was a grandparent favorite!

I know my vacationing family clients have full days of Colonial sightseeing, Busch Gardens fun, and resort swimming. So I am super grateful when they not only chose to fit in a photo session to remember their beautiful Williamsburg vacation together , but trust me with their precious time as well!

Whether you are here for a relaxing vacation or are lucky to live here like I do, I would love to capture your precious time too! CONTACT ME and we can plan your next family photo session for you together!

Hello, Rachel,
There will be seven of us (including one child, age 6 months) in Wmsburg over Thanksgiving. My husband & I will be celebrating our 45th anniversary, that weekend, as well.
Is a morning photo shoot possible for Friday, the day after Thanksgiving? Part of the group needs to head home that afternoon,and it will be some time before we will all be together, again. The ones from Brooklyn (w/ the baby) will be spending Christmas in Maine with his side of the family.
I look forward to hearing from you and enjoyed viewing your website!
