As a Leesburg maternity photographer, I’m always looking for the best photo locations in the area. Lately, I’ve been loving photos at Oatlands Historic House & Gardens! Located just south of Leesburg off Route 15, Oatlands is a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
As a photographer, I love it for several reasons! First, it’s a much quieter, private location compared to others in the area. Second, it gives you plenty of variety. The manicured garden is gorgeous – there are blooms in season throughout the year. From peonies to wisteria, it’s a gorgeous backdrop for photos. There are also open fields, the manor itself as a backdrop, and plenty of greenery.
This beautiful maternity session took place at the end of May. The roses were in bloom, adding a touch of elegance to the photos. And we got the most beautiful sunset! We focused the first part of the session in the gardens, and the second part in the fields.
