When Elle reached out to me wanting to do a southern inspired maternity session with a pink backdrop I was all in! This sweet family is getting ready to welcome another baby girl into the world and they can’t wait to meet her. Emmy is SO excited to be a big sister and kept kissing her mommy’s tummy during the shoot!

Baltimore really is “Smalltimore!” Katie and I went to elementary and high school together back in the day. It is crazy to think back to the days of sleepovers and playdates! Now Katie is married and they are expecting their first baby boy in a few months. They can’t wait to meet their son!

So many wonderful families! A lot of wedding photographers only shoot weddings, but I absolutely LOVE taking pictures of families as they grow after the wedding day. From maternity, to newborn, to family photos year after year, it is one of the greatest joys of my business.

You may recognize these two from their pregnancy reveal session at the Bay Bridge Airport I shot a few months ago. Greg is a pilot so it was the perfect gender reveal idea to fly a plane with the gender announcement at Essex Skypark! They had a party with their friends and family and their friend flew a plane announcing the gender on a banner in the sky.

The Baker family is expecting their third baby in March! I was so excited when Karolyn contacted me about taking a few reveal photos for them. She wanted to do an adorable pajama shoot in the bed with a cute sign. It was perfect.

When Jenny emailed me about doing a reveal session with her husband's plane in the background, I was all in! He works with planes for a living and has his own plane which made for the perfect pregnancy reveal announcement. Baby Calvert is due in January, and these two couldn't be more excited to be parents!

I always knew I wanted to continue shooting maternity, newborns, and families alongside wedding photography. There is so much joy in capturing an image of a child exactly where they are at and freezing time in that moment. And it is even more fun when I am able to continue taking pictures of the same families year after year!

You may have seen these two before on my blog from their downtown Alexandria engagement session or from their beautiful DIY wedding at The Athenaeum. These two are expecting their first baby in early 2018 and they couldn't be more excited! They also have two adorable American Brittany rescue dogs that couldn't wait to be a part of the shoot.
