This is the lovely Migliore family. They are the kind of family I love to shoot, who just naturally play with their kids. I don’t have to ask them to do things or tell them where to stand… My favorite part of taking photos is capturing natural, personal connection between people and it’s so easy to do with them. They were so fun, laughing and rolling down hills and playing.
They own the fabulous Azzurri Itallian restaurant here in Newport News, and if you haven’t tried it, you should. It’s the best pizza I’ve had besides the stuff I got when I was actually in Italy, and that’s saying something.
Its easy in the chaos of life, while your children are little to not find the time to take pictures or schedule them to be taken, but it’s so important, because this chaotic, amazing time passes so quickly. Pictures not only remind you to stop, snuggle your kids and cherish it, but they bring you back to that place when it’s gone and I can’t think of anything more comforting than holding onto a piece of my kids magical childhood.
