Marriage,  Motherhood

Maternity Shoot

So one of the things I was looking forward to in my third trimester was capturing this ever-growing bump in some of the last photos of just us two (or four) as a family.  I had stalked Michelle Harris/M Harris Studios on Instagram because I was obssessssssed with her beautiful family shots and loved her style as a photographer. Luckily, she was available and willing to do our maternity and newborn photos.

Given that it was the dead of winter, I was really hoping for a snowfall to make it a winter wonderland. However, I had my doubts as the DC rarely gets hit with snow. A week before our shoot, we had a massive snowstorm! #Winning! We put the dogs in the car and trekked a few miles down to the C&O canal. Our pups were part of our wedding ceremony the year prior and of course we had to include them in this next life transition.  Michelle was such a great photographer to work with, and soooo patient with our two crazy fur babies.  At one point she even climbed into a tree for a unique angle…that’s what you call commitment. I even had Kevin make a snow bump to match mine. Overall it was a fun sunny snow day indeed.
