Oh how I loved this session. I loved this session SO much that I have added river sessions to my permanent line up (well, when weather is permitting). It just speaks to me and from the amount of inquiries I have received since sharing, it speaks to a lot of you expectant mommas, too.
I have noticed several area photographers offering similar sessions since I posted these images and I would just caution anyone using the river for sessions to understand that the Rappahanock is a very swift moving and dangerous river, with many crags in the floor that make drowning very easy in very shallow water, particularly when combined with clothing and the off centered balance of a pregnant woman. Please, please, please use caution. I did a lot of location research before choosing my spot and I work with an assistant at all times so that one of us can be focused on the session and one of us can be focused on mommy at all times. I saw a few images that made me cringe making their way around the interwebs. No beautiful shot is worth placing a mother in danger.
