These golden hour maternity photos were taken on a magical fall morning in Northern Virginia. We chose sunrise to avoid busy crowds at this location, and capture the prettiest morning light. It was the BEST choice we could have made! As you can see, we got the most gorgeous golden light. When you add in the fog surrounding the rolling hills, it was a stunning combination. We couldn’t believe it when a flock of birds flew overhead at the perfect moment. Mama was glowing – a magical setting for maternity photos!
We did two looks for these maternity photos. Mama wore a blush gown from my client closet for the first half, then wore a cream sweater dress for the second. It was a relaxed, laid-back session with plenty of time to wander around the field and capture some unique shots. Enjoy a few favorite golden hour maternity photos below!
