Lynchburg Maternity Family Session | Tara and Family


Tara and Family

at the field

It’s a girl!

Tara and her adorable family are officially expecting a sweet baby girl who should be making her debut any day now! I had the privilege of photographing them a few weeks ago at the studio exclusive field location and Tara was just as beautiful as a glowing mama could possibly be. She did a great job selecting the attire for our time together, also! Paired with professional hair and makeup styling by our exclusive licensed stylist, this session has quickly become one of my favorites I’ve ever photographed!

The pink dress Tara is wearing is from the studio wardrobe while the lace cream dress was her own contribution. Big brother and dad are wearing their own items but I was inspired to add some adorable suspenders to the wardrobe just last week for big and little brothers to wear! I love the look of suspenders on just about any guy! :)

Big brother Oliver was SO precious during our time together and is surely going to make an awesome brother to his little sister, as was evidenced by his willingness to give Tara’s tummy lots of kisses!

Tara has booked a full year of sessions for their little girl, so I am excited to share more pictures of their beautiful family over the next few months. For now, enjoy some of my favorites from our time together below!


Ahh! So many tender moments... my heart could just burst looking through this session! <3
