Every once in awhile a session opportunity comes along that’s completely different than anything I’ve ever photographed before. This Winter Studio Maternity Session is one of those sessions. When Jenae first inquired about her maternity session she wanted to have the session outdoors but she wouldn’t have been much more than 20 weeks which is […]

Winter Studio Maternity Session

In 2019, wedding days looked a lot different for me. Why? I was pregnant! Since then, I’ve had so many photographers asking How to Photograph a Wedding Day Pregnant. The last wedding I photographed pregnant, I was 35 weeks and Ally Grace came 3 days later. A month early! I thought it would be really […]

How to Photograph a Wedding Day Pregnant

This Winter Winchester Arboretum Maternity Session was taken before Virginia felt some pretty cold days!! I’m so thankful we captured their maternity session before it was so cold we couldn’t feel our fingers. Jamie was glowing during her 35 week maternity session and due just a few short weeks after the maternity session. I always […]

On a gorgeous evening in July 2020, I photographed Tanie and Brad’s Summer COVID Manassas Battlefield Maternity Session. I drove from Winchester to Manassas and on the way there I drove through rain, clouds, and sunshine. I was so afraid their session would be overly cloudy or rainy but when the sun popped out as […]

Summer COVID Manassas Battlefield Maternity Session

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 […]

Almost a year later, I hear from Emily letting me know she and Eric are expecting!! I was so honored to continue photographing this couple and their love. We photographed […]

It’s so exciting watching couples become one and then become parents. They are the sweetest couple and are going to make […]

Manassas Battlefield Maternity Session

Blogging this session is so surreal to me! Through this pregnancy, I’ve often stopped and thought, “Is this really happening? Is this a dream? Am I really pregnant?” During my baby shower I stopped several times because I couldn’t believe it was real. It’s the most magical feeling! I’ve been so blessed that this pregnancy […]

Hello Third Trimester

My family knows I’m slightly obsessed with the Town of Occoquan. Anytime visitors come, I want to go to Occoquan so it’s no surprise that I’m slightly obsessed with this Occoquan maternity session. When Ruth’s inquiry came in, I didn’t know if it was going to be possible to schedule her maternity session so last […]

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!
