First blog post for 2015! :)

I love this maternity session shot in late November. It was a brisk, and I mean brisk fall day at Woodlake on the Swift Creek Reservoir in Midlothian, Virginia. Beautiful place for photos, but as the sun went down, it sure did get chilly! But mom was such a trooper, walking the long path with us and sticking it out to get these gorgeous shots. Sun glowing through the trees on the water is always the best! And to make it even better, of course they had to bring their awesome dog along, who was preparing to be a big brother!
As I write this, mom and dad are at home right now with their little one! Baby Zoey wasn’t due until February, but she was ready to come out and see the world in December. Congratulations to the Lenart family, I can’t wait to meet her!! :)

And there’s Bogey! I must say he wasn’t too thrilled to pose for photos, but he was super excited to explore! He did a pretty good job though.Richmond-Woodlake-Winter-Maternity-Dog-Photographer (1)Richmond-Woodlake-Winter-Maternity-Dog-Photographer (8)Richmond-Woodlake-Winter-Maternity-Baby-Bump-Photographer (6)

Remember how cold I mentioned it was? Every time I see this photo I remember when I asked him to put his hand on hers, she goes “oh, thank god, warmth!”Richmond-Woodlake-Winter-Baby-Bump-Maternity-Photographer (20)Richmond-Woodlake-Winter-Famly-Dog-Photographer (10)  Richmond-Woodlake-Winter-Maternity-Baby-Bump-JMU-HatPhotographer (17)
