TEN YEARS. An entire decade…hat is how long I have waited for this day. FINALLY one of my favorite and most special friends is having a baby! I met Hilary through work all the way back in 2008 – before babies and marriage (for me) and even before a single gray hair or wrinkle (also only for me – I mean have you ever seen a more beautiful pregnant lady in your life?!). Hilary is one of those people who is impossible to dislike. She is funny and nice and so outgoing. I remember her first day at work, we invited her to go to lunch with us, and being so surprised that she said YES! I am pretty shy and it was so foreign to me that she was ready to jump in and make friends on day one, but at that moment I knew I liked her! We worked together for about 8 years, and have stayed close after. I can’t say enough good things about Hilary and her husband, Aaron. They are kind and generous and smart people who are outgoing and become friends with everyone they meet. They are going to make the best parents to a sweet baby girl, who is going to be probably the most attractive person to ever live if she inherits any looks from either of her parents!
I met up with Hilary + Aaron on their land in Leesburg, Virginia. It was so perfect for an outdoor session, and now I pretty much only want to photograph any client at their house haha. They had lush woods, fields of tall grass, open fields, and MORE. Even though the sun hid behind the clouds all evening, their images are some of my favorites that I have ever taken. Here are a few of my favorites from Hilary + Aaron’s maternity session:
