Northern Virginia Maternity Session


This Northern Virginia maternity session was a joy to photograph! Lisa, her husband Mitch, and son Lucas recently moved into their new home in McLean and are eagerly awaiting baby number two. It was just natural to photograph them in the beautiful space they would bring baby home to.

I really enjoyed capturing Lisa by herself because I think it portrays that waiting period every mother experiences before meeting her baby for the first time. “When I do get a moment to finally breathe on my own and soak in what’s happening, it hits me. I’m having a baby. Motherhood is hard, but when I look at my son Lucas, I’m so proud of him. I am so happy to be his mom.”

I think these words from Lisa can resonate with many new mothers as they wade through the waters of motherhood. Although the path is not well lit, we each find our way (with the help of some smiles from our little ones). I hope you enjoyed this Northern Virginia Maternity Session.
