What a crazy beginning to spring we have had! I’m so thankful I was able to capture this Spring Woodbridge Cherry Blossom Maternity Session before Virginia’s governor ordered a stay-at-home Executive Order until June! The corona virus turned everyone’s lives upside down. For some it caused crazy anxiety. I can’t imagine being 35 weeks pregnant and not knowing if my husband could be in the delivery room with me. As if your hormones weren’t already wild enough, let’s throw in a pandemic!

I’m so thankful that right before COVID-19 caused a shutdown and a screeching halt to life, we were able to sneak in this Spring Woodbridge Cherry Blossom Maternity Session. We knew the stay-at-home order was likely coming so we made sure to get this Woodbridge Cherry Blossom Maternity Session photographed before we weren’t able and before her baby boy was born. A few days after this Spring Woodbridge Cherry Blossom Maternity Session, the announcement was made that we were ordered to stay-at-home and about a week or two later her baby boy was born!! Momma and son are doing well.

Is she not the most stunning mother? I always love when clients wear solid colored dresses to their sessions. It always keeps the focus on them and not what they are wearing. This momma is absolutely glowing and they are all so very excited to welcome a baby boy.
