After almost 6 full months apart (thanks, covid) our family was finally reunited in our favorite place in the world!!! Deltaville is a quaint beach town nestled on the Chesapeake Bay in southern Virginia. My Granddaddy built our family’s home in Deltaville in the early 1960’s and my mom spent every summer of her childhood there. Growing up, my family spent a ton of time at the bay with my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Some of my most treasured childhood memories are tied to this cute, nautical bayside town!
Since graduating college and moving away from Virginia, I still try to make it to Deltaville as often as possible. So I was beyond excited to be able to make the trip to spend a long weekend my family! The weekend was laid back– biking around town, lounging on the beach, boat rides, golf cart rides, and more. We also celebrated Tucker’s 3rd birthday and captured some family portraits. It felt SO good to all be together again.
Enjoy some of the highlights from our family weekend in Deltaville.
And we celebrated Tucker’s 3rd birthday with the entire family with a little birthday party! He loved getting to celebrate with my parent’s dog, Salem, who we refer to as Tucker’s cousin. I found the cutest party animal plates and napkins at Target and the dogs had special frosted dog cookies while the humans enjoyed some fresh brownies. Tucker also enjoyed opening gifts from his parents, aunts, and grandparents!
And we of course had to take some family portraits to celebrate being together! We attempted a big group photo for our Christmas card and then I captured a mini-session for each couple.
My amazing parents! They make almost 31 years of marriage look dang good!!
My older sister, Sarah, and her fiancé, Sam! These two are tying the knot in May 2021!
My baby sister, Emily, and her boyfriend, Will!
Deltaville will always hold the most special place in my heart! So many decades of memories have been made here!
Until next time, Deltaville!
