It takes about an hour from my house to reach Smith Mountain Lake. It is a beautiful drive! On this evening, I found myself wanting to stop and snap some pictures of the scenery. I didn't, as I was on my way to a session with Lori and Kevin and their family! I was excited and for good reason! This family is so much fun and really enjoy being together!
Julia and John are so adorable! Julia was a pro and thought up some pictures herself!
Lori wanted to have her session include her parents and Kevin's Mom. It was her way of honoring all the grandparents in a special way! I love this image! It's so real!
Taking a walk!
I'm sure moments like these happen all the time! :) I really like the feel of this one! It may be my favorite!
Part of our decision to photograph at the lake was due to the fact that Lori's grandparents owned a home there. Her parents now own a beautiful house built right beside the home Lori used to visit as a child! She has fond memories of swimming at the lake, playing in the yard and sitting on this ledge near the dock!
Thank you all for letting me photograph your family! I really enjoyed our evening together! Hopefully dinner tasted extra yummy after all that hard work!
