These Vienna, Virginia spring maternity photos did not feel like spring as we were shooting this session. However, we still captured the beauty of the new season and this family’s new season of life. This is M, the mom, and D, the dad‘s, very first baby! M and D are such an incredibly sweet couple. They are both so nice and friendly! Truly a perfect match for one another.
M and D were such wonderful sports during their maternity pictures. Although the weather was cloudy, freezing and very windy, the cherry blossom trees were in peak bloom which is just truly beautiful. We took a ton of jacket breaks to try and keep them as warm as possible. It was a challenging session due to the weather but their resilience still helped us get amazing results. We had to work really fast in order to get the photos we wanted. None of us are really accustomed to this type of weather. M and D are originally from Brazil and I grew up in the Philippines. We bonded over the warm weather we grew up in and imagined we were on the beach to make it through these maternity photos!
If the weather hadn’t been so frigid, this would’ve been a MORE beautiful day! Meadowlark Botanical Gardens is a gorgeous location for a session. I have photographed maternity photos here before and I love the location. There are so many beautiful spots to work with. One thing to be thankful for the cold and windy weather, is that the park wasn’t too crowded on this day so we could maneuver quickly and easily to get our shots! M and D made their pictures look effortless even if the weather was uncooperative. I really salute them for enduring this harsh weather, especially M! She wore a dress fit for spring from my client closet that was so beautiful on her but definitely difficult to wear in the cold wind.
Because M was super cold by the end of session, D was so sweet to run to the car to warm it up for her and bring the car to her so she wouldn’t have to walk. He was such a gentleman! It’s very easy to see already that they will make wonderful parents. Regardless of the weather, these Vienna, Virginia spring maternity photos were still so much to capture thanks to this wonderful couple.
M and D – thank you both so much for braving this weather with me! You both already show amazing qualities that tell how great you will be as parents. That is one lucky little baby on the way. Congratulations to you both!
