This family’s maternity session was one of my first after having to shutdown due to the pandemic, and it felt SO great to get back to work after so much time away. As a Washington DC maternity photographer, it was hard to see families unable to document special milestones like a pregnancy. I am so thankful to be able to safely do this again!
I met these two (well, three!) for their maternity session at Rock Creek Park in Washington DC. The weather that summer evening was warm, but perfect!
It was such a joy to work with these first time parents. Mom-to-be was so beautiful and glowing! I know being pregnant during a pandemic is difficult, but all I could see on Mom’s face was her excitement for this new little bundle of joy to arrive. We were able to get to know each other as we walked to one of my favorite fields in the park.
Some of my favorite portraits from this session were when we stopped in the high grass. The way Dad is looking at Mom was pure magic. Their connection and love was so evident.
This is one of the many reasons, I believe everyone needs maternity portraits, especially after a year like 2020.
why documenting your pregnancy is a must | maternity photographer in Washington DC
I truly feel for all of the parents who are expecting during this pandemic. I know many have missed traditional baby showers and having Dad at doctor appointments.
That’s why I created a client experience that makes planning for your maternity session easy. I want all of my pregnant Moms to feel beautiful and celebrated. Many couples have told me that after their session they felt even more connected to their partner. Your session gives you a moment of time to take in this incredible gift you’ve been given, together.
Sadly I missed out on a maternity session with my first two kids, but so glad that I did it with our third. I absolutely cherish my maternity portraits and looking at them takes me right back to that precious time in my life for my family. My kids also love looking at photos of my pregnant belly too!
It’s my hope that your portraits will reflect the love and anticipation you have for your baby. They will serve as a beautiful reminder of the good that came out of a crazy year!
