Back in early November, Ricardo reached out to me wanting to gift his wife Micaela with an anniversary and maternity session to celebrate their wedding anniversary and first baby on the way. When speaking to Ricardo and Micaela on the phone, they literally spoke my love language photography wise. They told me how important it was to them to document this time in their lives since their first baby was on the way, how much they loved incorporating nature and natural light into their photos and that they wanted to do an adventure style maternity / anniversary session since hiking and exploring is such a huge part of their lives.
We got together and shot December 1st at Great Falls, Maryland. This spot did not only have the scenery and vibe that Micaela and Ricardo were going for but Great Falls is somewhere that the two like to come to hike, explore and escape the hectic Washington DC city life.
Being that Micaela’s is due date is Christmas day this year, I was curious to see her hike around Great Falls with less than a month to her due date. Boy was I surprised! She out hiked both Ricardo and I, climbed rocks, and walked on uneven paths and through water without taking a break or batting an eye. Both Ricardo and I were so impressed by her energy and adventurous spirit!
I absolutely loved this session! Everything made my creative heart happy from the location, to the love shared between Ricardo and Micaela and their love for adventure. If their new baby doesn’t come out ready to go on epic outdoors adventures I am going to be shocked!
Sending my love and positive vibes to Micaela and Ricardo as the make their adventure into parenthood later this month. Enjoy this adventure inspired maternity and anniversary shoot at Great Falls!
