I truly enjoyed meeting and photographing Kristen and Ryan for their Maternity Session at the Back Bay Refuge in Sandbridge, Virginia Beach.

Kristen and Ryan’s love story is something out of a book! After they met at camp many years ago, they now are both in the band for the military (Kristen on the flute, Ryan on the trombone).  They were troopers on this hot, hot summer day in Sandbridge, Virginia… like it was one of the hottest days of the year and neither of them had air conditioning at work for the week… so the last thing they wanted to do was be in the heat!  But they pushed forward and totally rocked it!

I could not have asked for a better couple for a maternity session.  We got to take advantage of one of the prettiest golden hours I have seen in a while! Congrats on your new bundle of joy, Kristen and Ryan – thank you for choosing me to capture your love, celebration and excitement.

Take a look at some of my favorite shots from their session:

Until next time,
