Maternity Session in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia | Richmond Film Photographer

Alyssa and I have always been in love with taking photos together. She has been my muse since we were in middle school. Throughout our friendship, we have created some of my favorite photos in existence, but what I am most thankful for is all of our memories. (cheesy) Some of my fondest days of my life were days spent with Alyssa getting creative together - frolicking through fields, crossing creeks, climbing trees, and playing in the rain. Of course, I always had my cameras in hand.

These are the last photos I took of Alyssa during her pregnancy. We had planned on hiking to a waterfall, but naturally we were screwing around all day and didn't make it in time. I wouldn't trade any details from this day for the world. Alyssa had her baby girl Ren on her own birthday, December 1st, 2022.
