Norfolk Photographer - Maternity Session at The Hermitage
Like many couples, these two lovely people struggled with heartbreak and fertility issues before finally getting the good news that they would be parents. Amanda contacted me to plan a very special and long hoped-for maternity session. Spring had not quite arrived, but she wanted something outdoors, in a natural setting.
We tossed around some ideas and she fell in love with The Hermitage Museum and Gardens in Norfolk. The Hermitage includes an early 20th Century historic home on 12 acres of formal gardens and natural woodlands. The site is often used for weddings and special events, and offers some gorgeous scenery as the backdrop for a Hampton Roads photo session. They do charge a small fee to use the grounds, but it is well worth it in my opinion, especially since the evening brings golden sunset light that streams through the trees in the most divine way.
Though a bit chilly and breezy, we enjoyed a gorgeous evening by the riverfront. We worked our way around the grounds, chatting and giggling as we went. Their excitement about their baby boy was absolutely contagious! I am so thrilled for these two! I know they will be wonderful parents to one very lucky boy.
I can't wait to meet their sweet bundle of joy in the coming months. Family blessings are the best!
