Maternity Session at the National Arboretum

I was obsessed with this couple the moment we met. We were immediately smiling, laughing, and connecting as we took these photos.

This couple chose to take photos at the National Arboretum because it's a place they frequent often and they hope to do family trips together soon. I love when locations have special meanings! If you're also interested in a shoot here, please note that there is a photography permit fee, but it's worth it!

Depending on the session, I like to bring along props like blankets or stools to add some variety to your poses. When I saw the white rose bush set up perfectly for a photo with a stool, I ran back to my car to get because I just knew it would make a gorgeous portrait. I'm so glad they trusted my vision!

I am so confident that these two are going to be amazing parents, and I am not just saying that. Their kindness and lighthearted nature just shone through. Their kiddo is going to be so lucky!
