Kent & Kristen | Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, Virginia Maternity Photographer

I’ve known Kent and Kristen for years now and I cannot get enough of these two! We were actually just reminiscing about their Christmas portraits years ago when they first got their precious pup! Cannot believe that much time has passed! Now, they are expecting a little boy, and I’m already excited to see photos of their announcement when he makes his big debut! He will be here before we know it. šŸ™‚

Kent & Kristen | Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, Virginia Maternity PhotographerKent, Kristen and I met at the beautiful Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna last week, which was coincidental that I had another session there earlier that week! Perfect time of the year for garden photos. šŸ™‚ The weather was SO good to us, and it wasn’t even super hot, which was ideal for any summer session. I can only imagine that their little one is keeping Kristen insulated anyways, so I’m glad she didn’t have to worry about overheating while we conquered the huge venue! It’s so much fun photographing returning clients because it gives us the opportunity to catch up since the last time we hung out. šŸ™‚ They have a lot of exciting things happening in their lives this year, and I’m so happy to see how well they are doing! Becoming first-time parents is the beginning of an exciting adventure!!

Thank you, Kent and Kristen, for making our time together so much fun!! I’m SO excited for your little family and already know you two will be fabulous parents. šŸ™‚ CONGRATS and enjoy this preview from our time together!!!
