Sunshine, sand, & water | A perfect maternity session

    I first met Leigh while working together as nurses in Richmond. In fact, I met her in the VERY beginning of her pregnancy! Fast forward nine months:

   I think it goes without saying that Leigh is S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G, and as that baby belly continued to grow I knew that I NEEDED to get her in front of my camera.

    We went ahead and scheduled a date for her session but the weather had other plans. We had to reschedule her shoot due to the rain and we were running out of time. Baby Drew was due any day and we were cutting it VERY close. This maternity session was days away from turning into a newborn session! 

   We finally picked a day with the most beautiful weather! Hair/makeup & this gorgeous flower headpiece were done by Sharon Buchner. I brought along some homemade cupcakes for Leigh (and baby Drew) and we were able to shoot on the beach during golden hour... 

    ....and OH was it worth it!!! Here are just a few of my favorites from her session! 


And my personal favorite...

   Just a baby Drew update...

       This sweet little girl was days away from her due date when we shot this has been almost TWO weeks since Leigh's maternity session and baby Drew STILL hasn't made her debut! She's making a fashionably late arrival and keeping everyone on the edge of their seats waiting for little Miss (a momma's girl for sure!). When she finally decides to meet everyone she will be welcomed home by her two older brothers (and I for one cannot wait to meet her too!). 

   ***A shout out to Leigh for putting up with me and my camera at 39+ weeks and to all of the people who helped make this session possible!***
