PRESENTING | Itty Bitty Baby Bump

This shoot is a little surreal. You might remember my friends Mckell & Brandon from their engagement pictures taken just last year.   Recently they shared their exciting news that a little one is on the way.  What a whirlwind the last year has been.  The weather has been so gorgeous lately we had to get out and take advantage of it…even though her belly is just itty bitty and I swear I had to photoshop it bigger in some of these images. : )

I love these two. I could not happier for them…or for myself with these awesome images we got. : ) Really some of my favorites!

Mckell's Maternities


PRESENTING | Intimate In-home Maternities

Oh my gosh I’m so obsessed with these right now I can’t stand it! I’ve been wanting to do a shoot like this for awhile now where it’s an intimate in-home setting but there are always so many issues to consider – having enough light, space, the right decor, etc. Well the stars were all aligned for this shoot and it was amazing! Starting with the beautiful mom-to-be being a PERFECT subject to photograph. Add an immaculately decorated home and tons of huge windows offering an abundance of natural light and voila! I feel like Heather Locklear was expecting and I was hired by Vogue to get a spread of  images for an interview they have with her about the pregnancy. Thank you Brittany for giving me some of my favorite images of all time!

PRESENTING | Hoping for a Red-Head

I’ve been wanting to photograph a super duper red head kid for a very very long time and so far I haven’t been able to find me one. Though the mom-to-be’s hair has lightened over time to more of a strawberry blond tone, know that growing up it was some seriously strikingly gorgeous red hair. Some seriously strikingly gorgeous red hair that I’m now hoping will be among the many great qualities and characteristics that her lucky baby boy will be blessed to inherit from his mom.

I can’t tell you how much I love this boy already or how much I think about everything I’m going to dress him up as for pictures once he’s born so stay tuned for a newborn session coming soon with what I know will be one of the most adorable, most precious and most loved babies ever to enter this world!

PRESENTING | Twins On Board

Brace yourselves for this. This skinny-minny just bones and a belly is expecting not 1 but 2 little ones in just 6 weeks! I know, I know, I know she looks just amazing-has the glow and all! Unbelievable!

I swear when I first heard they were expecting twins the wheels in head started spinning at 5000 rpm and 24/7 I was either shopping on etsy or sketching out things to build for my shoot with not 1 but 2 little angels…due just before CHRISTMAS!! Can you imagine my excitement?! Stay tuned!!! I can’t wait!!!

I couldn’t be happier with how these images turned out, though I’m not surprised, theirs are always favorites of mine. You may recognize them from a shoot we did this last spring.

PRESENTING | Tiffany & Chris are Having a Baby!

Last week I had a great shoot with a Mom & Dad to Be that are awesome.  We shot at Meadowlark gardens in Vienna where the possibilities are endless. From ponds to trees, to flowers,  hills,  bridges, gazebos and more but what stole many of the shots was not the scenery but the prepared parents who came dressed for the camera’s and brought along some props of their own from their unborn baby’s book collection. Talk about adorable! A special thanks to Elisa & Danny for sending some fun and sweet new people my wayl!

Presenting | Beautiful Baby Bump

I’ve been feeling a little creative lately and greatly appreciate the opportunity Kristen gave me to experiment with some ideas I’ve had for maternity shots. I can’t express how fulfilling it is to have an idea or image in my head and see it come to fruition as a tangible print. I couldn’t be more thankful for Kristen’s willingness or more thrilled with the outcome.

Presenting | The Magic of Motherhood

Had a ball getting together with a good friend to capture the magic of motherhood. She’s expecting her third and felt that pregnancy and motherhood are such a huge part of her life that she wanted to capture the emotions that come with these fleeting times.
This one is a ball to photograph…over flowing with enthusiasm, emotion, and expression. Check out those eyes.
A sweet moment between superman and supermom.
