It was raining and we had planned to do an outdoor shoot and that was the only day my clients could get their pregnancy shoot done. Mariam was 9 months pregnant and due in two weeks with her first baby and I wanted to give her the photos that she will remember and cherish for the rest of her life. I thought about where I could take her to do an indoor shoot, I suggested my studio but she had her heart set on more natural photos that told a story. I made an appointment for her and her husband to do the shoot at one of the most beautiful hotels in DC, the Willard. We sat down, had tea, talked and took photos...made a raining, cloudy day a day to remember!
