Summer Children's Photos

Smithfield, Virginia | Ice Cream Parlor Session | Hampton Roads Photographer

We wanted a little change of pace and change of scenery this weekend so we hopped in the car and headed to Smithfield, Virginia to walk around town, grab some ice cream, and just take a break from the chaos of Hampton Roads.  I happened to snag some adorable smocked outfits for the boys at a local thrift shop last week that worked out perfectly!  This isn't my normal editing style, but I felt like playing around a bit and wanted the photos to have more of a vintage feel considering the location and outfits.  I like stepping out of my comfort zone once in a while to see what I can come up with!  It can be so fulfilling to just let my creative juices run wild!

Our littlest LOVES ice cream, so these are mostly photos of him.  However, this is only part one of our adventure!  Our oldest has a sweet tooth as well, and got a special surprise we weren't even planning for so it was a surprise to us as well.  I'll be posting a separate blog with that part of our evening later in the week, so keep your eyes open!
