My hope is that this blog inspires you to document what matters most to you. I'm a photographer and also a mom to 3. My photography is inspired by the fleeting moments I've found in motherhood.

I have a garden maternity session that I am so excited to share with you today. We headed to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia. Despite the gloomy weather, we had a great time exploring the beautiful gardens together and documenting their sweet family. 

This session was all about capturing the deep connection within this family, with a special emphasis on the bond between this mama and her son. It was heartwarming to witness their interactions and capture those precious moments that they’ll cherish forever. During maternity sessions, I especially focus on the mom’s connection with her older children. You know how strongly I feel about motherhood and documenting it in all of its forms. There is something profound about purposefully capturing the bond moms have with their kids, especially as they prepare to welcome a new little one. 

I always ask my clients what they want to remember about their children or their family in twenty years. This mama shared that she wanted to remember the way her son giggles when she looks back. It’s these little moments of joy that make life so beautiful, and I’m honored to capture them for her. 

The Norfolk Botanical Gardens holds a special place in their hearts because they often visit as a family. I can see why – it’s such a serene and picturesque location, perfect for creating lasting memories. I always recommend choosing a location that holds significant meaning to you, as it adds an extra layer of sentimental value to your photoshoot. After all, this session is all about documenting your life as it is now, including the spaces and places that are dear to you. 

Despite the cloudy skies, the love and joy shared during this garden maternity session was so clear. It was truly a pleasure to capture this beautiful family in such a special setting. I can’t wait for them to meet their newest member!
