Melissa & Land – Expecting!

You may remember Melissa and Land on the blog last year? Well this year they have some wonderful news and I was thrilled to meet up with them again to capture this exciting time! Yesterday our nation’s capital blessed us with a taste of summer two days early in the form of 95 degrees and humidity that you could taste. So although our original plan was to take some photos outdoors with a bit of a nature feel, we opted to start the photos indoors and to wait for cooler temperatures. Luckily the city has plenty of indoor locations with a/c, and we had fun finding a few spots in and around the Smithsonian museums. The Museum of Natural History was so packed, but we did grab this first photo that I love:

And then we strolled over to the Museum of American History next door for this other image that I love!

Nope, not on the metro – still at the Museum of American History:

Once it was cool enough to venture outside (thank goodness for a bit of a breeze!), we walked over to the Sculpture Garden:

Life imitating art? This makes me smile: You look amazing, Melissa!

We did manage to work a little nature into some of the photos after all:

Is this kid going to be goooooorgeous, or what?! Congratulations, Melissa & Land! You are both going to be absolutely amazing parents. I can’t wait to see and hear all about him/her (I don’t want to spill the beans in case anyone wants it to be a surprise!) when he/she gets here. 🙂
