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 […]

I was blown away by her style: classic, romantic, and […]

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 […]
