Officially one year into my business, what I love the most about photography is that it has allowed me to discover new places and meet new people.
This past weekend, I discovered a beautiful park under a bridge I had driven over plenty of times – an oasis I didn’t even know was there. Jones Point Park is a little urban paradise in Old Town Alexandria.
And I got to meet Ava and Nicole, two beautiful mamas-to-be. They had their first date in Alexandria, and we decided this little park was the perfect place for maternity photos. Ava and Nicole were [are] super cool – even when I was like “yeah, so what if you guys went and stood in that patch of ominous-looking ivy?” – which, apparently, was filled with awesome rainbow-colored beams of light I didn’t notice until post. They braved the bugs and the heat and the Chesapeake Bay summer, but we had a great time. They are expecting their little guy – I will leave the name disclosing up to them – in a few months. He is also already super cool (see the fedora below).
