Starting a new series on the blog - Bump to Baby. These are young families who gave me the opportunity to capture their journey of adding a new member to their family. Bump to Baby posts will illustrate those final weeks before the arrival and what life is like with a new family member.
Each family's story is unique. Maybe they're first time parents, maybe this baby is completing their family. Either way there is so much excitement captured in their loving interactions.
The first post in the Bump to Baby series highlights Baby Laguna. Loved meeting this sweet girl's parents for the first time at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia.
A lovely fall morning in Northern Virginia meant the air was crisp and the sun was warm. We walked through the beautiful gardens stopping to take photos where the fall colors came through.
This mom and dad shared so much excitement for this sweet girl's arrival. Sharing about their upcoming baby shower, plans for after her arrival, and how the pregnancy was going so far.

As fall turned to winter and the holidays came and went, baby girl's due date was quickly approaching!
To receive an email reading 'she's here!' is such a work perk. I always knew meeting new people and connection would be one of my favorite parts of photography but hearing about new additions making their debut is so wildly wonderful!
Goosebumps took over when I read that this girl arrived and was lucky enough to see a picture. She was precious and while only a newborn, had very long legs and so much hair <3
Mom and dad were smitten with their sweet baby and it shows! All parents share those soft warm gazes at their baby but there's a unique connection in each one.
