I was so excited to take these maternity photos for my brother- and sister-in-law last Saturday that I willingly missed watching the Gator game. That's love.
Kevin and Kristy only live a couple of hours away in Lexington, Virginia, so I was able to go to them. They picked out two locations that had meaning to them for their photos. They're an active couple and Kristy, especially, loves hiking. I'm envious that they live just a few minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and we hit a spot nearby where they'd hiked before. I was a little worried that the pregnant lady might slip on a boulder or something, but Kristy was a pro. (I took my own babymoon a couple years ago on the Blue Ridge Parkway, so know a little about the challenges of pregnant hiking.) The weather even turned out gorgeous after a sketchy, rainy start. Fall in the mountains is just THE BEST and my subjects could not have been more adorable.
Kevin works in campus ministry at Washington and Lee University - a beautiful, historic, well-manicured campus - so that was our second stop. He had several locations already in mind and led us around expertly. He was an excellent tour guide, too, although we did skip visiting Robert E. Lee and his horse Traveller's resting places on campus… famous, but not ideal for maternity pictures, probably.
