Groenhout Family Maternity Session

On a beautiful fall day, I was so pleased to be able to come into Adam and Kaylie’s home in Aldie VA and capture a maternity session for their family. They were expecting Baby Number Three in December, and when I came to be part of documenting this exciting time, I could tell that the whole family was looking forward to the new arrival.

Mom introduced her family to me, and I loved what she had to say so much that I had to share it here:

"I'm a business owner, doula and mother. I met my husband almost 10 years ago on the Internet. We've lived on the other side of the world together (in Japan) and have enjoyed both military life and civilian life. When the kids get crazy or life gets hairy, we smile and remind ourselves, "We're living the dream!"

Mom and Dad have two kids in the home already—Hadley, who is 3; and Reese, who is almost 2. It was so much fun to capture those two being kids together. I loved the image of them climbing and playing in the crib; it was a very accurate representation of what little kids like to do at this age!

There were also so many little daily moments, like snack time and morning routines. I loved the moment toward the beginning of the day when the toddler woke up grouchy and her parents just let her come out of it. So, so real life. The kids love reading and playing with toys and seashells, and it was so much fun to incorporate that into the session.

Of course, I also loved the images I was able to get with Mom alone. My favorite images were of her in her room. It might not have been the typical spot for maternity pictures, but it was so meaningful!
