Ricky & Whitney | Northern Virginia Winter Maternity Photographer

Ah! So many favorites from Ricky and Whitney’s session!!! You know, I’ve been hearing many people rave about my maternity photography. I was going to start cutting back on lifestyle portrait sessions, but Ricky and Whitney inspired me! 🙂 I enjoyed my time Friday evening getting to know these two! Whitney wasn’t originally from the area, but after we talked via email about her vision, I knew the perfect place to take them! Goodness, with their outfits and this backdrop made for a PERFECT, photogenic shoot!!! It doesn’t hurt that they are very photogenic!! 😉 Many people choose to not have their portraits done during the winter season, but there is something stunning about an overcast day with the neutral backdrop tones! All reasons why this is one of my favorites!!! The funny thing is we were desperately trying to find ways to reschedule this session because of the high probability of rain. Fortunately, it worked out in our favor and I’m SO glad it did because I could not be more excited to share these beauties with you today!!!! 🙂

Ricky and Whitney are expecting a precious little girl, Everly, very soon!!! When we were walking around talking about the big debut, they sounded confident and ready with the nursery set up! That’s a great position to be in just weeks away. 🙂 So much is going to change in a short amount of time so I’m glad they wanted to have this beautiful time documented. I cannot wait to see their beautiful baby photos when Everly arrives!!! She’s going to be one pretty girl! <3

Thank you, Ricky and Whitney, for having me document this blessing in your life. <3 Everly is going to be so loved!!! I’m so excited for you guys! CONGRATS!!!!
