Maternity Photos | Alexandria, VA

NEWBORN

As a maternity photographer here in Alexandria, VA, I have done countless sets of maternity photos all over the area, but still nothing makes me quite as happy as sunrise photos in Old Town.  At sunrise, Old Town is still sleepy and quiet.  Minus a few runners, Kristen, Jaramie and I got the entire place to ourselves.

Here Potomac River Boats rock quietly on the Potomac River as the sun begins to rise.

The Old Town Alexandria waterfront is full of color in the summer with hanging baskets of petunias and the blue cedar shake shingles on the restaurant on the boardwalk.

Kristen & Jaramie danced on the front porch of the Carlyle House in front of its iconic custom blue door.  The coral and blue are complementary colors.  Making these two pop in this image.

As the morning went on, we continued our tour of Old Town Alexandria with the cobblestone lined streets as the morning sun shone through the branches.  Even in summer when the world is full of color, I still find myself drawn to black and white imagery.  There is some timeless and classic about black and white photography that keeps bringing me back to it.

After photos in Wales Ally, we circled back into the gardens at Carlyle as the sun continued to rise on this maternity session.

Hi I’m Erin and the artist behind Erin Tetterton Photography. Welcome to the photographic THE ARCHIVES.

I believe our lives are divine orchestrations. We each have a story and I believe they are stories that deserve to be told and told well. From Weddings, to Babies, and to celebrate the years we are just glad to have behind us. The photos I take are the images that tell the story. Your own history. Your family’s history. ….and the history of those generations that are to come.

My goal is to create authentic, timeless imagery that accurately depicts each phase of your life. Those phases will be different, unique, and beautiful. Inject humor! Do them in a place you love!
