Arlington Virginia windy winter maternity session

For every outdoor shoot I have, I obsessively watch the weather the week prior to the shoot. For this shoot, all week long our day was looking warm and sunny, till the day before when suddenly the temperature dropped, the rain chance increased and the wind was whipping at 20 miles per hour! We weighed our options and ultimately decided to chance it. It was cold and windy, but I'm so glad Mary and Henry were willing to work through it. The photos of them snuggling together are heart warming, and the ones of Mary's hair blowing in the wind take my breath away. It just goes to show that the weather doesn't have to be perfect for your session to still get gorgeous images. You'll be seeing more of this sweet family in just a few weeks when I photograph their newborn little girl! I'm so looking forward to meeting her and of course getting to spend some more time with these guys. Till then though, enjoy the beauty below!
