Norfolk, Virginia

A Quick Trip

This past weekend Chris and I traveled to Norfolk, Virginia. Chris’s cousin, Ashley, and her family (+ his brother) all live in the area. Ashley messaged me back in the fall asking if I’d be interested in photographing her sons senior pictures. It was a very easy yes from me! There is something so fun and inspiring about shooting in a new environment. If you didn’t know I’m a travel photographer, now you do 😉

When we arrived, Chris and I checked into our hotel (that was a vibe!) Glass Light Hotel. Downtown Norfolk is absolutely stunning. So many old buildings full of character! We freshened up and headed out for a delicious Italian dinner at Razzo. Fried calamari, fried mozzarella, and chicken parmesan filled my belly. It was truly such a treat! We headed over to Ashleys after to play a game and hang out.

Sunday was senior session day in downtown Norfolk! Chris and I grabbed some breakfast and coffee from Cure first thing. After that we parted ways and Chris went to hang with his brother while I walked the streets of downtown Norfolk and snapped photos of my chill and easy senior, Jaxon. It was a blast! After photos we went to the hotel until it was time for tacos and games that evening at Ashleys.

Monday Chris and I met his brother at American Brew for one final goodbye. We then grabbed açaí bowls from The Green Cat just a block away from the beach. Since it was cold and rainy, they didn’t really hit the spot. We went to the beach to hear and watch the waves roll in one last time. We did manage to see a pod (I think that is what they’re called) of dolphins. The ocean never ceases to amaze me. I can’t help but think about how little I am and how big God is. After we saw the ocean we had lunch at Waterman’s Surfside Grille right there on the beach (indoors of course because it was cold). We grabbed one last coffee (my favorite that I had in Norfolk) at Coalescence before we headed off to the airport.

Chris and I loved getting away just the two of us. We also loved seeing family! It is always so fun to see others necks of the wood. Norfolk, Virginia was beautiful and I can 100% understand why people live there. I absolutely loved photographing Jaxon’s senior photos and I can’t wait to share them on there (post coming soon!).

One last thing, again, if you didn’t know I travel for photos, now you do 😉 haha I’d clearly love to do this again.
