Olde Towne Portsmouth, Maternity | Hampton Roads Photographer

Hampton Roads Photographer

I can't believe it's been over two years since I photographed this amazing couple's engagement session. We spent a warm night down at the Virginia Beach oceanfront and some of those images are still my favorites!

As we walked around Olde Towne Portsmouth, we chatted about their trip to Europe. I am such a believer in traveling pre-kids (if you can!) to enjoy your time as a married couple. It bonds you deep when you adventure together and see the world. Of course, you can do these trips after kids and even with kids. But in some ways, it's never the same. It's important to invest in your marriage, no matter what stage of life you're in. Okay, that's my soapbox! (steps down)

I am counting down the weeks till I can photograph this new family of THREE!


I really loved exploring Portsmouth, it's a spot I might not have traveled to on my own. So many options, I love trying new locations and jazzing it up ;) *jazz hands*

If you are expecting a new addition in 2017, now is the perfect time to book! Consider booking a maternity + newborn bundle to capture each chapter of this new journey. I know my own girls love seeing pictures of when they were in my belly, it makes them feel deeply loved and appreciated. Kids notice these things, believe it or not! A maternity session says, "we loved you before we met you! we are so excited waiting for your arrival". I love that :)
