Chesapeake Bay Family Portraits | Photography by Audra Wrisley

March 29, 2016

“This family is extra near and dear to my heart, as I was able to photograph my sister and her sweet boys during our summer trip to the Chesapeake Bay. My sister is an amazing mother, and is always putting everyone else first! For our shoot this year, I wanted her to feel extra special, and we found this gorgeous navy gown to make her feel like a million bucks. She is now expecting her third child, and freezing these moments in time is so special! I’ve loved watching her family grow and change over the years.

Motherhood is so magical to photograph, particularly when I’ve gotten to see my sister’s journey from Day One. She’s always been so calm and confident as a mother, something I truly admire. She instills love and joy into each of her children, and knows both of them so well, as only an amazing parent does. Capturing these moments never gets old!” Audra, Photographer

“Summer family vacations are such a special time for us especially on the Chesapeake Bay. Time seems to stand still as we enjoy spending time with each other in a gorgeous landscape without the interruption of technology, work, or obligations! Audra captured that relaxation and timeless essence with gorgeous images of our family. My children thought they were getting to play with a fun friend rather than posing for photos. I cherish these images as they are perfect reminders of a fantastic vacation!

Being a mother has always been a life passion of mine. I was blessed enough to have my children (two boys ages 5 and 2, with baby girl due in July!) early on in life and I have loved seeing our family grow and blossom. Not every day is sunshine and beaches like our photos, but so many days and moments are amazing (and messy!). I am able to help nurture, love, and teach our children on a daily basis and I would never take that amazing opportunity for granted. God had a plan for me to be a mom and I am so thankful that He has allowed me the grace to be called, “mom.”” Amy, Mother
