Brandon & Sam | Skyline Drive, Virginia Maternity PhotographerThis session has me in the mood for fall! 🙂 You might recognize these two from past blog posts! 🙂 I had the honor of photographing their engagement portraits, wedding and now their maternity portraits! I adore these two SO much, as they are more than just clients, but friends. <3 They are some of the most kind-hearted, sweetest couples! A ray of light! 🙂 From church to social events, like watching the Bachelorette, they brighten my day every chance I get to hang out with them. I’m so glad our paths crossed years ago!

Brandon and Sam chose one of my favorite spots in Virginia for their maternity portraits. We didn’t anticipate the chilly fall weather, but I should have figured since we were in the mountains! I met with them on Skyline Drive last week, and we ventured around finding pretty light! Just wait until you see the finale photos!!! I’ll never get enough of that sunset!!! GAH! <3 Sam wore a GORGEOUS Sew Trendy Accessories dress that blended so well with the backdrop. They looked so happy, and for obvious reasons; they are about to embark a new adventure of being parents. 🙂 I could not be more thrilled for them!!! Surprisingly, Brandon and Sam chose to not find out the gender of their first born! After talking about the reasoning, it makes sense now! There is a theory that it helps with delivery because of the anxiousness to see if they are having a boy or a girl. 🙂 I’m so excited for them!!! I’m guessing they are having a boy! We will see!!!

Thank you, Brandon and Sam, for yet, another fabulous time together!!! <3 I love you both and your newest addition!! Enjoy some of my favorites from our time together!!! XOXO!
