The Middleton’s Maternity Session // Washintong County NY

We have another Middleton who has flawless fashion – so, step aside Kate and please let me introduce Sam and Brandon.

The weather wasn’t the greatest for our shoot, but we had an amazing location with plenty of nooks to duck under. We dodged a few random downpours on our way up and I was so thankful for my handy dark sky app – I was constantly checking the radar and felt like Helen Hunt in Twister haha.

Both Sam and Brandon have awesome style and we had at least a dozen outfits to choose from (we only had time for three) and I so wanted to photograph them all!  And this couple – I am in love … they both were so natural and fun in front of the camera and a DREAM to capture.

It was awesome to work with two extremely loving, driven and beautiful people – inside and out!

This was the unanimous favorite image from the shoot!


Ah Sweet Love – what an awesome moment and perfect background!



I am obsessed with this dress! The colors were amazing.



Look at how they totally pop with this weathered red barn door.




Sam is Stunning – these hydrangea made for the perfect background with this sweet headpiece by Tara Holmes of Tiane Novati.


When shopping for accessories at Anchor No. 5 Boutique, I found this little “P” pendant necklace. Sam and Brandon had already picked the name for their daughter and they chose Peyton – so naturally this was an instant treasure for the shoot.


How can you not love love?




I am always thrilled when I see these natural or “candid” moments.


We were dancing in the rain!



We even slipped into the studio for some stunning images … here is a look.


Thank you for asking me to be a part of this time in your life! I can’t wait to see you soon and to meet Miss Peyton!!!  A BIG thank you to Cj for filling in as assistant and for all of your general awesomeness!
