Katie & Lauren – Roanoke River

I visit my mom in Roanoke, VA every couple of months or so. We like to hike to the Mill Mountain Star together and sometimes we drive around to scout new locations for photos. I love the mountain views and wide open spaces that I just can’t find in northern VA. There are so many beautiful spots, and last week I met Katie and her adorable daughter Lauren for a “mom & me” photo shoot by the Roanoke River.  I just couldn’t stop looking at these photos when I downloaded them and was editing because I can just feel the happiness coming from them and can tell how much of a bond they have.

I’m always looking for great locations that I haven’t tried before, so if you have one in Roanoke OR northern Virginia, leave it in the comments!!
