When Katie reached out to me last summer for an outdoor maternity session, she mentioned that she lived in the Northern Virginia area. I found out soon after her inquiry that she lived in Alexandria and wanted to travel to meet me for her session! What an honor! We decided to meet in Charlottesville at this whimsical field and I had a lovely time capturing her beautiful family (and their first baby - Benny!) during this short and sweet season of life.
About a year ago I found myself sitting on my couch talking to Jimmy about babies. That was the last conversation I expected to have when I woke up that morning. But he had major baby fever and I found it so adorable. It's not every day a pregnant lady gets to chat it up with a man that has baby fever. :) So a few months later when Emily and Jimmy told us they were expecting, I was not as surprised as I was excited. (But I was REALLY excited!) Emily has affectionately named the little girl growing in her belly "Jellybean." They are officially past their due date, but are waiting oh so patiently for little Jellybean to make her appearance. Actually, Emily has totally impressed me with her good attitude, steady emotions, and positivity throughout her entire pregnancy. She is just glowing and she makes pregnancy look like a walk in the park. Even better, really. She almost makes me miss it. (But not quite ;))
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from their mini maternity session a few weeks ago. I can't wait to meet this blessed little girl!
