Charlottesville, Virginia Maternity Photographer

This gorgeous Momma to be happens to be one of my best friends. Even though she is about 20 years younger than me, I love the deep connection we have together.

I was so happy to be a part of her wedding two years ago, and now I get to experience her becoming a mother for the first time. I remember so well carrying my first baby, (23 years ago…what?) and the emotions that go along with the true miracle of a baby growing inside of you.

As I have watched her belly grow, I am getting super excited to meet this baby…and none of us knows if it is a girl or a boy! I am secretly thinking girl, but who knows?

I have always wanted to take maternity portraits near the water. Back in July, she and I, along with another friend, traveled to Virginia Beach for her maternity session. The first night we captured sunset portraits and were so giddy with the setting and in awe of her beauty. She really is radiant isn’t she? The next morning, we rose early to catch the sunrise and WOW, again, the scenery and the subject were perfection!

Rachael, I am anxiously waiting along with you as you enter the most wonderful club there is. When you see your baby’s face, it is like no other love in the world. I love you and can’t wait to see you experience this wonderful thing we call motherhood!
