As a portrait photographer, I am constantly taking mental notes when I notice cool locations and beautiful light for photos. Downtown Norfolk is full of unique textures, buildings and colors. It's one of my favorite portrait places because even when we do a mini session like the one here, there are endless backdrops to choose from. When I saw that wall of ivy as I was parking to meet my clients, I was instantly inspired and knew we'd have to take some photos there. I'm so glad this beautiful mom and her kids were willing to hike a few blocks from our meeting spot to do so. This session was a lot of fun to both shoot and edit. The light, the colors, the connection between this mom and her kiddos - I love it all. Enjoy!
