A European Garden Inspired Family Session at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens | Norfolk, VA
I have been taking pictures of this sweet family for years, and it never gets old! We started when the parents, Ed Michael and Martina, were just a newly engaged couple, and now we are taking family photos with their adorable two little boys! I just love watching my clients’ families grow! When Martina told me that her idea for this session was inspired by European gardens, I couldn’t have been more excited! So much about this shoot makes me think Paris, from Martina’s beautiful blush tulle skirt to the stone walkways, from the wrought iron gates to the gorgeous rose gardens. Martina’s family is from Italy, and I know how much she loves being across the pond. I hope you enjoy our little slice of Europe in Virginia!
PS I’m totally available for worldwide travel - if you are headed to an actual European garden and would like your family or yourself captured there, let me know! ;)
Theo is the absolute sweetest!!!
How perfect is their little family?!
Sebastian might have thrown a few things from the stroller into the pond, but he's so adorable you just can't stay mad!
Sebastian loves water and it was hard to keep him from jumping in!
Quite possibly my favorite picture from the whole afternoon! That skirt was perfect!!
Someone didn't like the jets!!
Couples portraits in a rose garden at sunset?! Yes, please!!
Martina, you're so beautiful!!
