If you’ve ever worked with me, chances are you’ve seen my childlike reaction to good light, beautiful moments, and genuine interaction: a bit of giddiness that sounds a lot like a broken record. I can’t help myself! I get so excited when the image I have had in my head comes out so seamlessly while I’m shooting! I am so thankful to work with clients who trust me from the very first step to guide them to a final product of high quality imagery.
If you have ever had a photo shoot with me and choose to add-on professional hair and make-up, you have probably met Emily! Emily is a mama of five, a talented hair and make-up artist, and one of the most down to earth people I have ever met. I love every chance we get to chat and catch up on life in between running our own businesses! I loved collaborating with her on this shoot and capturing the vision she had for it! This summer maternity session in a field was full of dreamy sunset light and intimate moments.
I am so excited to share this gorgeous maternity session in the field with you!
All potential (and of course booked) clients are encouraged to schedule a studio consultation to meet with me and talk through options for your portrait session. Your options can range from locations to group photo combination varieties as well as clothing options. During Samantha’s consultation she told me right away she knew she wanted her maternity session in the field so we spent out time focused mostly on her clothing options. When she stepped out from the wardrobe dressing area wearing the pink dress and white sweater cardigan you see below, I am pretty sure I let out an audible gasp.
When Sarah reached out to me to let me know she was expecting and she wanted me to photograph her maternity + newborn sessions, I was ALL SMILES… and so very excited! Sarah and I go way back and I credit her for my introduction to the beautiful Glencliff Manor Estate (as well as a whole slew of wonderful client referrals)!
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.
