I recently had the opportunity to photograph a maternity session at Sierra Vista in Forest, Va. As a new mom myself, I absolutely adore being able to photograph expecting moms, their baby bump and the excited father. Pregnancy is such a beautiful thing, even though mom doesn’t always feel the best … it’s nice to be able to show them just how beautiful they are in photographs. Ashley was 38 weeks pregnant with her second son at the time of our maternity session. We had an unusually beautiful day in February for the maternity shoot, and we used the warmer weather and gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains to our advantage. Here are just a few of my favorite images from this maternity session with Ashley and Jerod.
