I personally do not like wine, but I am in love with Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg, Virginia. As a matter of fact, last time my in-laws came to visit we took them to see the place themselves, as I kept bragging about its beauty. Living in Arizona, I think they enjoyed the greenery 😉 The first time I went there was with a friend of mine, who happens to be a very talented event planner in the area. Thank you, Natalie, for giving me a small tour. It was then that I saw one of the private rooms on location. I immediately knew that I desperately wanted to take pictures there. This is where Sarah comes into place.
Sarah is expecting twin girls. Say whaaaaat! Yes, I know what you’re thinking. Sarah is so tiny that, if I didn’t know her and her story, I would have never guessed she’s pregnant with two babies. Like many expectant women Sarah didn’t see herself the way I saw her or the way many other people in her life see her as well. “Stephanie, thank you for working a miracle on me.” I remember that statement as if it were yesterday. Many customers, especially pregnant women, don’t feel comfortable in their own skin and dislike the way their body has changed. I told Sarah, that the real miracle is inside of her which is what I focus on during each and every maternity session I get to capture. Her excitement about the baby girls and her beauty is what made the picture. I am not a magician working miracles although sometimes this could come in handy, ha! 😉
After grabbing a bunch of shots of Sarah inside one of the main buildings on site, we continued the session outdoors. What can I say, Sarah, you look absolutely stunning! Thank you so much for letting me capture these memories for you. I am so thrilled to meet the girls and am beyong excited for you and your hubby.
