One Year Old Milestone Session | Norfolk, Virginia

Lately, it seems like I’ve been doing a lot of family sessions in the family’s neighborhood. It is a wonderful way to watch and take pictures of a family in and around a place that is meaningful to them. And we know, in this town of military families and frequency of moving, having images of a place you loved living is a wonderful way to keep the memories alive. Here is Wills and his parents, who live in my neighborhood on the other side of Hampton Boulevard. We walked around the roads that go along the river, then over to the library wetland park on a sunny morning. Wills had already been walking for a while so just at one year, he was fast! Little ones always seem to know where an off-limit or dangerous area is, especially little boys, and a lot of time was spent just rounding him up and keeping him away from the water’s edge.

We started out in their home first, with Wills and mommy reading one of his favorite books.

See, Wills was only one at the time of this session and look how confident he is strolling over the boardwalk!

I adore this picture of the family! They are all so wonderful.
