Maternity and Family Front Porch Session | The R Family in Alexandria, Virginia

What’s great about the front porch sessions is how each family can use them for what they need! The R family used it for a combination maternity and family front porch session. We were not sure if we were going to get a maternity session in, but as restrictions eased, we were excited to get this session in the books and document the pregnancy with baby number two!

I’ve photographed the R Family quite a few times before, and it was hard thinking we’d not be able to have a session for this miracle baby! We did a few traditional front porch shots, but we spent a lot of the time capturing maternity and family.

One thing I have noticed with these sessions is how excited the kids are to see someone who is not their parent. Little Charlotte was all over the place so I had to be on my A game to capture here and maintain social distance. I loved everything about this family front porch session, and this will always be one of my favorite galleries of one of my favorite families!

To book your family front porch session or any other outdoor session, just visit my contact page or e-mail me at Right now, I’m only booking sessions for June and July, and please know that I will be abiding by state and county laws for sessions, so if there is a covid-19 spike again and a stay-at-home order is re-issued with non-essential businesses closed again, I will be following those orders.

Meet Teresa


Hi. I’m Teresa. While photography is a part-time job for me, documenting your stories doesn’t ever get treated like it’s not important. My full-time gig is teaching high school English, journalism, and photography at an all-boys’ school in Washington, DC. Journalism is my favorite subject to teach because it is as much about writing as it is about the art of observing the world, and I became a photographer because of my experiences in photojournalism.

You’ll see in galleries with my families, children, newborns, or weddings, my style definitely is more about documenting connection and trying to create real moments. I love a good portrait, but my heart is happiest when I get real smiles from people loving on and playing with each other.
