Top 10 Favorite Family Images of 2011 | Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake Family Photographer

This was the first year in which I specialized in maternity, birth, newborn, and baby portraiture.  The result was having to turn down family photography requests - the hardest were those clients who have used me in the past and wanted to return.  After looking over the family sessions I did in 2011, I wonder if that was a good choice.  LOL!  I love my families - they are always so well-coordinated and beautiful and I just love making connections with them.  There are so many more that I could have chosen for this blog post, and I hope I don't offend anyone by choosing.  I went with a variety - big families, siblings, colorful, black & white, etc.

While my first love will always be the time surrounding the birth of a new baby, I will always try to make room in my schedule for my favorite growing families whenever possible!  Here are my favorites from 2011.  For each one, I could tell a story....but I won't.  I'll let the images speak for themselves!
