I always worry a little that outdoor winter sessions will look kind of bland or that my clients will look cold in their photos.
This was not one of those winter sessions.
We lucked out on a gorgeous winter evening, with warmer temperatures and the most magical sunset glow. Our little spot just off the Roanoke Greenway was the perfect backdrop for laughing, spinning around, jumping and playing.
I have so many favorites from this family maternity session — like momma's stunning maternity portraits — but I think I'm most drawn to the images of their sweet little boy, who's soon to be a great big brother. These images radiate everything that is good and simple about childhood, like the joy of a favorite stuffed animal, stomping in the mud, and playing with your mom and dad.
I'm so excited to share these highlights — but I'm even more excited about documenting their new baby soon!
