Karan & Simran {maternity}

This couple was just amazing to work with.   They texted me several time in the evening before their session – they were looking for the perfect dress.  And when I saw the picture they snapped of her in this one, I knew it was the one for their maternity photography shoot.  Its just stunning and so is this pregnant mamma.

Thirty six week pregnant Simran, and her husband, Karan are due any day now.   They are so excited to welcome this new wonder into this world.    They are going to be amazing parents.  I love these images from our maternity photography session – stunning!  And so much love!

Speaking of love, this couple is fortunate to have the love and support of their family and family is a beautiful thing.  I look forward for meeting their little one at their newborn session.

Danielle & Jimmy {family}

This photography session was just a joy  I love that they came for their holiday session with just their dog – Sully and themselves.    This family was beautiful and we had a perfect day at Midlo-Mines for their photography session.  Picture perfect.  And they were all about sitting in the tall grass, which as a photographer I appreciate.

It is so fun to be with families and couples that are happy together.  And Danielle and Jimmy, truly seem like they are so happy together.  They just kept stealing cute glances and making each other smile.

Sully was the star of the show, rocking his holiday colors.  This dog is one loved little pup.  Love him in this hat.

And I love that Sully got to play such a huge part in this special announcement.  While this was not specifically a maternity photography session, they were definitely planning a big announcement for family and friends.   She broke out a big bag of Pintresty magic for this and it was amazing.  So much fun.    Move over Sully, there is about to be a new kid in town.  And I am so excited I finally get to share these birth announcement pictures.

Renu {maternity}

Oh my goodness!  This family was just so wonderful.    This little darling is Aashna and she is about to become a big sister.   Let me tell you, she is ready.  What a cutie!  Look at all those sweet moments with her mamma.   We had so much fun during their maternity session.

Speaking of her mamma… this pregnant lady is just beautiful.  She is glowing and their is a sparkle in her eye.  And that dress….  I love it.  In fact, kudos to this family for their amazing outfit coordination!

Pink and pink and more pink.  I wonder what that means.  This sweet family, just so much love.  Look forward to meeting their sweet one at their newborn pictures.

Rose & Frank {maternity}

I laughed a lot during this maternity session.  This family was a blast.  And it was another brave mamma willing to brave the heat.  But they are from Georgia so I guess our warm evenings are nothing to worry about.

They brought the sweetest little munchkin – their daughter Kathryn.  She was a little hesitant at first but apparently the word “ice cream” work a crazy magic on her.  After that it was all smiles.

I think she is pretty excited about that baby bump.  Someone’s getting a little brother and is very excited.

This mamma is so beautiful.  And by the time you all read this, this mamma has already given birth to that little bump.  His name is Frank and he is a cutie.   Stay tuned for his newborn session.

Mittal & Jigmesh {maternity}

This couple is as sweet as they are cute.  I had such a good time getting to know them in preparation of their new arrival.  And Midlo-Mines was the perfect choice for their session.

Sweet Mittal, isn’t she stunning (and such a trooper)!  We did this session just as the weather changed here in RVA.  It was in the 90’s that evening.  So uncomfortable for any human being, but particularly a pregnant mamma.  But she persevered and smiled through it all.  Love this one!


As we stood on this bridge they asked if they would throw on their sunglasses.  I love a shiny set of aviator glasses, so yes you can!  They looked so cute in their shades.

This couple are going to be such wonderful parents.  And let me tell you, their “belly heart” skills – among the best I have ever seen. They were naturals.  And I am sure they will be naturals at parenting too.

So much love and tenderness (and beautiful golden light).  Love these moments!  The one on the right they specifically asked for as it was reminiscent of a photo they took at their wedding.  It’s perfect.  So happy to work with this sweet couple – can’t wait to welcome their little boy to the world in just a few weeks.


Kacie {maternity}

What an absolutely beautiful couple these guys are!  And we could not have gotten a more beautiful day for their maternity session.  Some of you may recognize those curving lines from the Dogwood Dell Amphitheater.  I have done so many sessions in that area and I have never seen them look so fun with those pops of yellow flowers.  They were a perfect compliment to Kacie’s navy and coral dress (one of my favorite color combos this year).

Kacie is a stunning mamma to be.  I mean she was just glowing when we met.  And that baby bump – what a cutie!

Kacie and her husband Mike met here in Richmond.  They have explored this world a bit and have come back to our fine city to start their family.  This baby could not be more lucky.  They are the sweetest couple and are going to be such amazing parents.

Kacie is due any day now.  Can’t wait to meet this little one!
