Best of Families in 2016 | Hampton Roads Family Photographer

Although I primarily focus on photographing weddings, engagement sessions, and couples' sessions, I actually capture a lot of family sessions as well. This year has brought such a wide range of people across my path - from those whom I know and call friends to complete strangers who welcome me in with open arms for an hour or two. From Williamsburg to Virginia Beach, Yorktown to Newport News and everywhere in between, it's always an honor to photograph both the typical smiling family portraits as well as the sweet moments that happen in between.

I hope what you see as you scroll down the page is just that - real moments between real people who love each other and have a beautifully messy life. I always leave family sessions with a renewed gratitude for parents who love each other through the ups and downs of raising their children together, and I always sneak in a few couple's portraits without the kids because mom and dad are husband and wife, too.

Here are some of my absolute favorite family portraits from 2016!

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.
