(I Had) A Very Merry Christmas // Hampton Roads Photographer

Each year Christmas looks a little bit different, and each year I love it for different reasons! This year I especially loved seeing out of town family who traveled to us to celebrate, and watching my niece open presents for the very first time. She actually got the hang of it (besides sticking all the wrapping paper straight into her mouth)! We even celebrated a little differently with Nathan's family, and had a blast at the Cheesecake Factory and the movies, which I've never done before. Who can say no to cheesecake, though?!

We finally got to take some family pictures this Christmas, too! I only had a couple minutes, but I was able to capture a few sweet moments before we sat down and got way too full with way too much food in record time.

And thanks to my family for putting up me while I herded them into the backyard right before we were about to dig in. Y'all are the best.

First up is my sister and her boyfriend :)

Maria Grace Photography

My name is Maria, and I am a wedding and family photographer based out of Hampton Roads, Virginia, but I am always excited about traveling. I love families who truly enjoy spending time with each other and living life together. I love couples that are looking forward to their wedding day because they are so excited to finally be married to.
