Riverwalk Landing in historic Yorktown is pretty amazing! You can walk along the river, enjoy the beach, visit many little shops, the Watermen’s Museum and few pubs and restaurants. Many times you may be lucky enough to see a sailboat or two – some pretty spectacular (L’Hermione was there in June and El Galeòn will be in November). There is plenty of history to explore nearby and it’s fun to spend time during many events that are hosted there.
I love it for variety beautiful backdrops for family or engagement photos. Sunsets at the river are gorgeous, especially when the sky is full of clouds! Sometimes after a session I stay longer to enjoy an outdoor jazz concert or just a quiet walk. It quickly became one of my favorite places to visit after we moved to Virginia few years ago and holds many good memories.
Recently I met Adele, Bill and Megan for a sunset marine family photo session. Adele had a vision that Riverwalk Landing was perfect for. They arrived in great moods, beautiful outfits and ready for fun! And we had lots of it! Six-year-old Megan played fantastic assistant making her parents laugh and beam with joy. It was great to hear her posing them “and now you both kiss me on the cheeks”! And they were happy to listen! They are wonderful to spend time with! I enjoyed walking, chatting and laughing with them. Bill adores both of his ladies and Megan is a little sparkle of sunshine! I love her sense of humor and spirited personality! Adele makes little kids dreams come true by helping their parents plan Disney trips. A stunning sunset rolled in and we were lucky to catch views of few boats with open sails – a lovely addition to Adele’s vision of their photographs.
