Jorgensen Family | Yorktown Beach Family Photographer

When extended family comes in town, it’s the perfect time to schedule a photo session!  Rachel reached out for a session around graduation time.  We did a family session with her family, and some extended family pictures as well (scroll to the end of the post for those!).  The one thing they told me was […]

The Biagas Family’s Sunrise Session | Yorktown Family Photographer

Maybe I’m overly sentimental, but seeing three generations of families come together for family photos makes my heart so happy!  What’s more, this family got up before dawn to make it happen.  When Melinda first called me, she said, “I really hope you’re available on Wednesday at 7am because that’s the only time we can all […]
