A Neighborhood Family Session – Larchmont Norfolk, Virginia

The McClure family LOVE their Norfolk neighborhood, Larchmont. They have lived there for several years and the family has grown from one to two children in that time. Because they are a Navy family there is always the possibility of a move so when Amy and I were planning the yearly Fall session, she hitched onto the idea of walking around the neighborhood and using Larchmont as the backdrop. And since they are neighbors of mine (we live on the same street and that’s how we came to work with each other to begin with), I knew all the places to go to hit the memory notes for them in years to come. Here are a few of my favorites from their session:

We started off just walking down the sidewalk in front of their home.

The cedar tree on the corner is so beautiful so we had to stop for some pictures in front of it.

Little miss wasn’t ready to get down and walk by herself while I was taking pictures so I had to be silly and get her laughing and smiling. I knew when she was warmed up to me, she would be ready to get down.

One of the big gathering places in our ‘hood is Triangle Park. It fronts up to the Lafayette River and is also a good dog park for the neighborhood pooches. John was happy to pose and be silly for me and also was really good with his little sister, helping her be less shy.

They really wanted to go through that gate but it was locked. I think this shot is so adorable.

LIttle boys and their mamas are so sweet together. John hugged Amy and said “I just love you so much, Mommy.”

We are lucky to have beach access to the Lafayette River at the end of Hanover Avenue. The kids had a blast spending time down there.

Larchmont is a beautiful neighborhood and I’m so glad Amy wanted to capture how much they love living here. The heading home shot was one of my favorites.
