Meadowlark Botanical Garden’s never let’s me down when I shoot there! Northern Virginia has some of the best locations for maternity sessions!!! But at Meadowlark, the light is always so perfect and this time I was able to visit during the summer when a lot of flowers were still in bloom thankfully. Salinna and Nate found me via Intsagram. Isn’t the power of social media such an incredible tool? Meadowlark Botanical Gardens was a special place for them. They not only loved the backdrop it provided but they had their engagement session done there when they got married!!! Seemed only fitting they went back to that location to celebrate the pending arrival of their son! After weeks of rain and us having to reschedule once, we found a window of sun and grabbed it! We spent an hour walking around and just laughing, which was an easy thing to do with Nate, Salinna’s husband with us. He’s HILARIOUS and I LOVED that he constantly made Salinna smile. Which made for the BEST pictures. He knew exactly what to say to get her beautiful smile to come out! I can’t wait to visit Meadowlark Botanical Gardens again soon and I can’t wait for these two to become parents!!!
