{belly} Linda :: Northern Virginia maternity photographer

Linda came to the United States from Sweden, and Brian climbed over tables to meet her when he saw her. She describes Brian as her “soulmate” and with the way that these two laugh and move effortlessly together, you can see why. These two lovebirds are due with their baby boy any day now and I am SO excited to meet him. Linda, you are beautiful! It should be illegal to be this gorgeous at 37 weeks pregnant. Special thanks to Suzanne from The Make-Up Chic for doing such an awesome job bringing out Linda’s natural beauty.
