I had first met Beth + Mike when they were celebrating the recent news of their pregnancy and wanted to share their joy with the world with pregnancy announcement photography.  At that time, we had headed to Manassas National Battlefield Park in Northern Virginia for their pregnancy announcement session.


Now, 4.5 months had passed and their baby was blossoming.  This time, for their maternity photography session, Beth donned a beautiful red Priscilla maternity gown from Sew Trendy, and we headed to the beautiful Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland.  


Enjoy some of my favorites from Beth + Mike's maternity photography session.  I can't wait to meet Baby for her newborn photography session when she finally arrives!


Expecting a baby?  Remember the first feelings of life with maternity photography that your family will enjoy for generations.

When there are a large number of images from your maternity photography session that you want to preserve and pass down for generations, a custom-designed, heirloom-quality album is a gorgeous, classy way to remember your pregnancy and to complement the select number of wall portraits that you hang in your home.


Here, Ivan's mom & dad chose their favorite 26 images from their studio maternity photography session for an 8x12 size artful album. Their maternity photography album boasts a beautiful, platinum floral fabric cover and art linen inside paper. Enjoy some of my favorite spreads from their maternity photography session at our Maryland photography studio!

"Your photography is beautiful! I thought how the couples engaged with each other in your portraits was really authentic. I liked how you captured their relationships... I could feel what they feel for each other looking at the photos. We would like pregnancy announcement photos, and I want our photos to capture our love, relationship, and excitement for our 1st child," said Beth on our first phone call.
"We'd like to hang a large wall portrait in our home and use the other pregnancy announcement photos for baby shower announcements and a bound baby book with one year's worth of baby photography," she continued.


Later, I got to meet Beth & Mike in person for their pregnancy announcement photos planning & design meeting. I learned that they had eloped five years earlier in Niagara Falls, and that they are "rustic but posh rednecks." Their ideal pregnancy announcement photos would be either in front of a barn, on a dock, or in a forest. After talking about various potential locations together, Beth & Mike settled on rustic & forested Manassas National Battlefield Park in Northern Virginia. Enjoy my favorite selections from their pregnancy announcement photos, and check back for a photo of the large, 24x36 canvas wall portrait they ordered, that is destined for their fireplace mantle!

Just got the good news that you're expecting?



Celebrate your pregnancy and allow friends & family to share the joy with pregnancy announcement photos that are a timeless work of art.

We added a new 8x12 vertical album size to our custom-designed album line up and just had to share with you! This 40-page Artful Album with a padded, custom photo cover features 37 portraits from the Ruiz's colorful DC maternity photography session at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland. In contrast to our Storybook Album designs, the Classic Design is a simpler design allowing larger images with just 1 image every 1-2 pages. What a great way to display and enjoy portraits from your maternity photography session... a beautiful album that doesn't take up wall space in your home and that can easily be passed on from generation to generation!

Build your legacy with an heirloom maternity photography album destined to be handed down and cherished for generations.
