Hampton Roads family session at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg

Often times one of the BIGGEST hesitations in hiring a documentary photographer is the pressure you feel to have the “perfect home.”

I totally understand that having young children means you are living in a home that  “appears to have just been ransacked by intruders” and a little less like Joanna Gaines just left (totally speaking for myself here too).

The thought of getting the house into a semi-presentable state might be completely overwhelming.

Trust me, I get it – that is my life.

The reality is, that for most in home sessions, I am only going to shoot in a handful of rooms, the ones that have the best natural light.

BUT, for those of you who just can’t get past the idea, I encourage you to think outside the box.

Sessions that take place outside of the home and be just as meaningful as photos inside your home.

The Tracey family allowed me to document them at one of the coolest theme parks in Williamsburg, Virginia!

Busch Gardens is totally a favorite of for so many Hampton Roads families in the spring, summer + fall.

PS. Little Alden asked if we could take a family picture. Scroll down to see what happened. Totally UNPROMPTED #mykindafamilypicture.
