{belly} Sarah :: Northern Virginia Maternity Photographer

“I know I’m going to want photos to capture this special time in our lives and it’s been a real struggle for me to sift through all the photographers out there and find one I think embodies the style that I connect with. Until I found you:) Your style is so real, yet romantic, in a process that we romanticize our whole lives, even though the reality isn’t always so romantic:) I want that beautiful contradiction in my photos. Real and romantic.” ~ Sarah

Ever since getting this inquiry that made my heart skip a beat (this girl is speaking my language!), I have enjoyed getting to know Sarah and her husband John. I am SO excited about photographing the arrival of their baby girl in a few weeks. This is a couple who just adore each other – when I asked Sarah what her favorite thing was about John, her voice softened and she said “His heart,” and it didn’t sound at all cliche. She then went on to talk about how good and gentle-hearted he is, and I knew from the way she described him that he is going to be an awesome daddy to his little girl.

The love that Sarah and John have for each other flowed throughout our shoot, as did the love they already have for their daughter. There is no one easier to photograph than a couple or family in love with each other and in love with life. I am counting down the days til baby girl’s arrival!
