Earlier this month I organized a group shoot out with a bunch of wildly fantastic local photographer friends. There will be a whole blog post about it later on, but it was a wonderful way to meet up with other local photographers and have some fun doing what we all love the most: photographing gorgeous mamas!
We all met up in Loudoun County, VA for a maternity & child session at one of my favorite outdoor field locations. Kristen and her handsome little boy Caden joined us as models for the event, and they were beyond charming and lovely to work with. Both of them handled having half a dozen photographers around them like total pro's, you'd think they do it everyday. Kristen is positively glowing during her pregnancy, the light and love just pour right out of her. She was so natural and loving with her little boy and so excited about the baby to come.
Big brother-to-be Caden is almost two years old and I LOVE this age. It's full of exploration and silliness. With toddlers you never quite know what's going to happen next. He was so charming during the session. His grin was infectious and I couldn't help but smile every time he ran off to play with his truck for a few minutes. Caden even deemed me cool enough to give me a few high fives during the session (I'm totally "in" with the toddler crowd).
I will be sharing more behind-the-scenes images from the shoot out later on, but here are some of my favorite images from Kristen's session, enjoy!
