Ben & Olivia | A Winter Maternity Session in DC

Spoiler alert: my NEPHEW is in that cute little bump!!!! My brother, Ben, and his wife Olivia came home to visit for the weekend. I was so excited when they said they were up for creating some maternity portraits – and in DC, no less!

Ben and Olivia live in Florida, but they handled the cold temperatures like champs. I was so impressed! Luckily we were treated to reasonably decent weather and tons of golden winter sunlight. It was so fun getting some one-on-one time with these two and exploring the city together!

Thanks to construction at the Jefferson Memorial and tons of crowds at Lincoln, we had to get a little creative with our portrait locations. However, I think I love these even more than my original plan! We ended up spending the majority of our time at the American Red Cross building. It’s a little different than the typical monument portraits, but still classic DC!

Please enjoy a few favorites from their session this morning! Can’t wait to snuggle my nephew this spring!
