Roanoke Family Session at Rivers Edge Sports Complex | Roanoke Portrait Photographer


This sweet family reached out wanting some family photos and senior photos for their son Vincent. I have met some of the Ferro family before at soccer games for my brother and sister (He was their coach!). I would hear stories of how Coach Ferro was the best coach and so much fun at practices and games. So I knew this session was going to be good! I got to experience first hand how much fun this family was!! They had no trouble at all cracking jokes to make each other laugh.

This was a beautiful end of winter day and there were SO MANY people out running, walking, biking, etc. This definitely made things difficult for photos. We had to dodge so many distractions to get the perfect shots but this family was so patient and I was thankful for that! It is always a challenge to remember where you stood, the pose, and facial expression when you have to move several times for bikes and runners. This family became pro’s at this!!

I know that most photographers just get those typical everyone smiling at the camera shots but I also like to show personalities! Don’t get me wrong I always get some nice family pictures with everyone smiling at the camera but to me, showing the “real life” personalities is just as important. So during family shoots I always make time for some fun photos! This family had the perfect amount of crazy and calm to balance each other.

I had so much fun with this sweet family and can’t wait for our next session together! Check out Vincent’s Senior Session to see where we ended up afterwards.

Enjoy a few favorites from their Roanoke, Virginia family session.

So for these shots we had about 30 seconds to get before bikers, runners, and walkers got in our shot! Look how good they did with their posing! You wouldn’t have known we were pressured by how good these turned out.
