With Elation and Joy | Photography by Sarah Beth

September 6, 2016

“I first met Josie after one of my nightly scrolls through Instagram. I was on the lookout for fun-loving and trendy bloggers to partner with for an upcoming project, and in my hash-tag searching- Josie’s profile immediately caught my eye. We first worked together to capture a few images for her color-filled fashion blog and after just a few hours with Josie-I quickly realized that I’d made a lifelong friend. Josie is quite possibly the most vibrant, joy-filled person I’ve ever met. She’s got the most infectious spirit- her happiness is absolutely contagious…so you can imagine her total elation when sharing the news that she and her wonderful Alex were expecting their first child.

Josie and Alex’s story is one of instant love- Alex told me during their session that he immediately knew he loved Josie when he first met her. Alex is Josie’s calm and steady, his love for her so apparent. They adore one another, and they are SO filled with love for their little love to come.

When planning their session- Josie had her heart set on something by the sea to stay true to the couple’s Florida routes. The DC area isn’t necessarily known for it’s beaches- so after some searching- we found the most beautiful spot along the Potomac’s tidal basin at Leesylvania State Park. Josie’s flowing white Free People gown played perfectly with a soft sunset, rolling water, sandy toes, and that sweet sweet baby bump.

It’s hard to properly express such excitement for these wonderful friends- so I hope these images will do the talking. Josie and Alex- capturing these images was the greatest honor. I can’t wait to meet that perfect little boy of yours.” Sarah, Photographer
