From beautiful Gainesville, Virginia


Photographer, twin mama, and sushi connoisseur.  I'm so glad you're here, and I hope you'll stick around and enjoy these blog posts!


Stephanie + David | Gainesville, VA | Maternity Photographer

When I first chatted with Stephanie on the phone several months ago about her little one on the way, I could hear in her voice just how excited she was to be expecting! She and David have waited a while for this little boy to come into their lives and they are so ready for him! We started their maternity sessions at the Battlefields just as the sun started to set, and it turned out to be the perfect early-fall evening to capture Stephanie and David together as they anticipate their little man’s arrival! Here are a few of my favorites!
