What a gorgeous day for a Summer Manassas Battlefield Maternity Session! I love photographing at Manassas Battlefield because of the large fields, it’s never been too crowded and the light is beautiful! I met Elise and Juan at the battlefield for the first time and couldn’t stop smiling at how beautiful of a couple they are! Elise looks like a model and she’s simply glowing!! Can you believe she only has about 1 more month before baby comes?

Elise and Juan are keeping the gender of their baby a surprise which is so much fun! Elise said that knowing the gender is one of the last surprises you get in life so she didn’t want to know beforehand. I love this so much, it’s true! What a special moment it will be when they find out when baby is born.

Looking forward to seeing them again and photographing their precious little one later this month!
