Charlottesville Lifestyle Family Photos by the River


Each year, Elisa and I collaborate on her family photos and she simply comes up with the best ideas year after year. We’ve done everything from at-home sessions in pjs, a backyard session, a session at a nearby park, and this year, we headed to a a spot that has become of a favorite of theirs during quarantine. Playing in a river for your family photos? That’s one quick way to get everyone on board!

My best tip when choosing a location is always to choose a place that has meaning to you and your family, whatever that may be. Whether it’s your home, your neighborhood, a favorite hiking spot, a place you always visit together…the options can be endless. You can make magic in the most unassuming of places, so don’t be afraid to throw out ideas!

Elisa, thank you so much for trusting me year after year to document your beautiful family as you change through the seasons… it’s a gift to me!
