Northern Virginia Family Photographer | Sunset Family Session

The life of a boy mom, I know this very well. Our days are filled with noise and dirt and lots of bathroom humor. But boys have this incredible gift to bringing us mamas to the edge, and then turn to us and say, "You are the best Mama in the entire world". Yes, boys can be loud and can be very messy, but they are also so kind, so gentle, and boy oh boy, do boys love their mamas.

I met this Mama and all her boys to my favorite location for outdoor sunset sessions, 48 Fields, for their annual family portrait session. I have had the honor to have photographed this family since the beginning of their family.

You may remember last year's family session. If not you can find it here. But that evening the sky got very dark and eerie. As soon as the last clicked the shutter for the last time and we said our goodbyes, the sky opened up and it poured. Thankfully, this year, we had nothing but clear skies and beautiful warm sunshine!

Northern VA Maternity Photographer | Awaiting Baby B

There are times when I am at a session, and I can just feel the magic in the air. This was one of those sessions.

There is a sense of magic when you are expecting your first child. Everything is so new and so exciting, and you just can not wait to meet him. The long 9 months is coming to end. Soon you will hold this beautiful boy in your arms and you will lovingly be welcomed into the wild ride of parenthood. It is exciting, it is scary, it is magical!

Hands-down, this is one of my favorite portrait sessions of all time. The love this gorgeous couple has for each other and for their little one on the way, is breathtaking. Their love is radiating through each image.

Mother Nature must have known that we were capturing something very special at this session too, because she put on her own show this evening.

The best sunset, beautiful parents-to-be, and so much love, there was something truly magical about this maternity session.
