Dustin & Brooke | Skyline Drive, Virginia Maternity Announcement Photographer

I cannot believe it has been over 2 years since Dustin and Brooke got married! I was writing this blog post and could have sworn they got married early last year. I need to get my years straight because it’s almost 2018! Yikes!!! This is an exciting post for many reasons! Brooke and I have stayed in contact since their wedding day, and I’m so glad we have! She just brightens my day every time!! <3 We have gotten together for portrait sessions with her family, catch-up dinners, Bachelorette watch parties, my housewarming party and now this big announcement!! She reached out to me excitingly asking if I would document this stage of their lives. Uhhhhh, YES!!!! Don’t have to ask me twice! šŸ˜‰ I could not be more thrilled for Dustin and Brooke! They are going to make amazing parents! Especially knowing their families, I can see how they are going to reflect that back to their little one. <3

Dustin, Brooke and I met up last week for these darling photos, and if you haven’t read the story about almost getting stuck on the mountain, read that story HERE! šŸ˜‰ Haha! It turned out to be a beautiful day for their announcement portraits!!! It was foggy and super cloudy earlier, but it cleared up just in time for their photos! It was a quick session, but fortunately, they made it just in time before the sun disappeared behind the clouds for the night. I loved seeing how HAPPY Dustin and Brooke were about this new adventure they are about to embark! They deserve every bit of it and I cannot wait to see the day when they get to hold their blessed baby in their arms!! That day will be here before we know it! <3 This session was a beautiful way to celebrate a new beginning!

Thank you, Dustin and Brooke, for coming up to the top of the mountain to create these beautiful memories! So much to be excited about this year!!!! I’m SO excited for you all and know that you will be incredible parents. šŸ™‚ Congrats!!! Thank you for having me a part of this celebration! XOXO!
