Girls rule // Maternity shoot // Northern VA

Sorry guys, but you are officially outnumbered. This adorable family that I have been photographing for almost three years now, just welcomed a baby girl into their home two weeks ago. I was thrilled to do the maternity shoot for them a month ago, before the Little One arrived. You will have to come back to see the photos of Emmaline, which I will be posting soon. But for now, I hope you enjoy these special photos of the family anticipating her arrival.

More than anything, I am excited for Ellie, who will be a big sister. My family dynamic is the same as this bunch, with the boy as the oldest, followed by two sisters. I had the pleasure of being the youngest sister in my family‚Äďand was pretty much obsessed with my big sister. Sure, we fought a lot, but I don't know where I would be without her! I still call her daily for advice! She is my one constant friend. My best friend. And having a big brother to look out for both of us was extremely comforting. He really didn't give us a hard time that often either. He tried his best to avoid our girl drama ;)

So ladies, you rule the roost. Men of the house, be prepared for a house filled with a lot of nail polish, curling irons and Barbie dolls. And I hope you have your own bathroom. Because even if one sister is more of a tomboy, the other one could very well be a girly-girl. But I'll guarantee you this: that little Emmaline is going to be smitten over her big sister, regardless of her interests. She might try to dance like Ellie, run like Ellie and play sports like Ellie. She will carve her own path in the end, but she will always be grateful for that big sister who helped her find her way.
