In honor of photographing this sweet couple's newborn baby tomorrow (!!!), I am itching to share some portraits from their DC Monument maternity session this fall. We met up bright and early on a Sunday morning at the DC Monuments. I always find that sunrise at the monuments is my favorite time to shoot. It is so quiet, and far less crowded than any other time of day. Monica & Joe were such a pleasure to work with, and its obvious to me just how excited they are to become parents to a sweet baby BOY! We hit up all of my favorite monument locations: Washington Monument/Reflecting Pool, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, DC War Memorial & the Tidal Basin, which by the way, is JUST as beautiful with fall foliage as it is in the spring when the cherry blossoms bloom (and far less crowded ;)). Here are some of my favorites!
