When Karen Duckett is planning, you know it’s going to be well thought out, planned, and executed. That’s the case for this Floral-inspired Maternity Session at Bristow Manor, with Karen Duckett. Petalos, a DC based floral company, created Roshaun and Manita the most beautiful floral arch inside Warrenton based venue Bristow Manor. The arch took about 2 hours to install and we photographed their maternity session all around it.

During the session, I was able to get to know Roshaun and Manita a little bit. They are middle school sweet hearts, yes you read that right, middle school not high school sweet hearts, they met in the 8th grade, and the rest is history. Roshaun and Manita got married 4 years ago in 2017 and are now expecting at the end of May a precious little boy!

Looking forward to photographing their Over the Moon Baby Shower at Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg in a month.
