Modern & exceptional wedding photography.

This Tuscan-inspired maternity session at Tudor Place in Washington, D.C. was photographed by Michelle Whitley in October 2020. Michelle is a Tudor Place maternity photographer and Washington, D.C. portrait photographer available for maternity photos and portraits in the DC area and beyond.

When I found out my friend Lindsay was pregnant last winter I knew I had to get her in front of my camera. I later pulled together this Italian-inspired maternity editorial over the summer as she neared closer to her due date. Lindsay’s sweet babe was born mid-November and we could not be more overjoyed about her arrival!

Since becoming pregnant myself in early September, maternity photos have become near and dear to my heart. My vision for this session began with a stunning Borgo de Nor lemon dress I discovered on Rent the Runway. I captured the images at one of Washington, D.C.’s top wedding and event venues, Tudor Place. I then pulled more pieces from The Black Tux, and Lulu’s to complete the look. A special thank you goes to Maryland wedding hair and makeup artist, Jordan Simpson, for Lindsay’s gorgeous glow!

Although this editorial is simple, it definitely checked off on my bucket list. It was an honor to capture these beautiful images for Lindsay and Michael in this special time of their lives!
