Woodbridge Virginia Indoor Maternity

Yesterday I had the best maternity session ever!  I had a fantastic client that was eager to try new things and really have fun with her pictures.  She also had a beautiful backdrop in her home and a husband that didn’t mind being in front of the camera!!!!  This always amazes me because my husband hates having his picture taken especially when it is me behind the lens using him to test settings out.  When I got there they had a spread of food for me, hint to future clients this photographer is not above being buttered up :)  In fact I have to include a picture of the spread here because it was so beautiful and yes it was delicious.  Thank you!!!

I’ll have more fantastic photos up later this week so check back later!  You can also sign up to get emails when I post new pictures so you don’t miss any.  Click on the subscribe button at the top or put your email address in at the bottom of the page!

So here is the rest of the sneak preview of the photos from my maternity session this week.  I cannot wait to start shooting some babies in the near future!  Thank you to E for such a wonderful session, I have some fantastic images to show you!  I can’t wait!

 I live in constant dread that clients won’t like my photos so please post a comment and let me know if you like them!  It helps me sleep better at night when I know clients are happy:)

    Thanks so much for taking these. You capture Liz’s true beauty, something she will never be comfortable with me doing, but you’ve managed to see the radiance in her, and I can’t thank you enough for that.
