Mother-Daughter Date: Forest Hill Park Family Photos

They popped out of the car in matching outfits – cream tunics with maroon leggings and brown boots, accessorized with complementary scarves and bangle bracelets, and big nervous smiles. They were all ready for their mother-daughter date with me at Forest Hill Park.

It was a gloomy afternoon, but the trees were fiery orange and Kris’ and Emily’s complimentary maroon made for a cheery color combination that made the cloudy sky irrelevant.Richmond family photos

On location photos

Kris and Emily had never done family photos on location before, and weren’t sure what to expect. We started slow, wandering from bridge to bench to tree in the easy-access areas of the park before heading down toward the lake and exploring down the path next to Swift Creek.

Relaxed photos

They relaxed as we went along, and we chatted about this and that. As per the norm, I discovered an obscure thing that I had in common with a client, and Kris’ eyes lit up as she told me about the best places to visit in Alaska when I go later in November, and about how she found herself in Virginia after living in The Last Frontier.
