I’ve known Luke and Blair for several years now. Luke is your classic Virginia gentleman and Blair is a beautiful southern belle. To top it off, these two are hilarious! Luke went to VMI (where the rest of my family tree went!), he met my brother (Maury), and I met Luke and one of Maury’s infamous parties. Small world Richmond… around the same time we met few years back, he also worked at the same company my husband worked at and they became close friends. We asked him to be in our wedding party and he was a hit on the dance floor that evening! Luke and Blair got married in Staunton, Virginia and it was a gorgeous celebration!
This past Summer, Ryan and I told them the news that we were expecting and they surprised us with the same news! We were so excited to be pregnant together. They were having a GIRL! Blair was due one month after me so in early October we met at Tuckahoe Plantation for their maternity portraits. Blair got her hair and makeup done for the occasion — she looked stunning in her dress and rocked heels the whole time while strolling the grounds! The weather was perfect! I never get tired of photographing at Tuckahoe Plantation… this venue never disappoints. At the time of our session, the flowers were still in full bloom, the weeping willow blowing in the breeze, the views… it was all the perfect combination to document this special season in their lives.
Afterwards we enjoyed a double date at my favorite nearby restaurant, Portico. We sat outside on their patio, ate a delicious dinner, told stories, and talked about how excited we were for our kiddos to grow up together. Many play dates in our future! Luke and Blair welcomed their sweet little (red head!) Annie into their family on November 7th.
