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.

Sweet Baby Eloise | Loudoun County Newborn Photographer

10 little fingers...10 little toes.

Sweet baby, Eloise, you are completely perfect!

This gorgeous family welcomed this sweet little girl into their family just in time for the holiday season. What a perfect gift!

I adore that all of these children were named after classic literary characters! How fun is that?!

And it is so easy to see from these images, little girl, you are so very very loved!

Mama & Me in Tennessee | Loudoun County Baby Photographer

This past fall, I had the opportunity to travel to Nashville to attend a workshop with the amazingly talented Jenny Cruger of Jenny Cruger Photography, for her Motherhood Workshop.  During the workshop, we had the opportunity to all have a session with this gorgeous mother and daughter duo in her studio and in her field.

The love this mama has for her beautiful little girl just radiates throughout each image.

It was such a wonderful opportunity to learn and meet other extremely talented photographers. The workshop has left me with so many great ideas for the direction of Quiet Side Photography, and I can not wait to share them with you.
