Leesburg Maternity Session at Rust Manor House

Sam & Mitch will always have a special place in my heart. Their wedding was one of the first that I filmed post-Covid, in the fall of 2020, and is still one of my favorites.


A couple years after their wedding, I was fortunate enough to meet them in downtown Leesburg for a portrait session with their new pup, Potomac. We'd stayed in touch, and I was thrilled to be able to see them again! It was a chilly winter day in Virginia, but I had the best time scouting locations and catching up with them.


Fast forward to this year, and Sam announced her pregnancy to me through my contact form!! I've never been more excited about a photo inquiry. After shooting an editorial in April at Rust Manor House, I thought it would be a beautiful and diverse backdrop for their maternity photos. Rich greens, stone steps, and a sun-spotted cream mansion exterior provided us a warm & cozy vibe. Sam & Mitch even brought the champagne glasses from their wedding for a toast at the end!


This Leesburg maternity session will always be one of my faves, if not because these humans are simply stellar. Check out some highlights below!
