Soldiers Delight

Sunrise Maternity Photos

When Ashely came to me, she had a very specific vision in mind. Sunset maternity photos with a golden glow. And that’s how we ended up at Soldiers Delight.

Of course I adore this look, so I was all in. Some photographers pretty much only do that, but with the nature of my location, I don’t always get to indulge in the sunset fields. 

Now, what happened for us is that sunset became a difficulty. This AMAZING couple agreed to sunrise, on a holiday Monday morning, in the middle of a nature reserve. I do believe it was well worth it. 

Ashely and Holden are newer to the area. Sometimes couples have ideas for locations, places that hold special meaning, etc. Since they were farther out than my usual circle of the DC area, I had some searching to do.

Scouting is such a fun part of the work. I utilize Pinterest and Instagram a ton, exploring other photographers work. In this case, I found a photo of someone local to their home turf and reached out. She was gracious enough to give me information, all the way down to where she often parks. 

Soldiers Delight, questionable in name due to the nature of it’s history as Indigenous hunting ground, has multiple things it’s known for. Now, it’s preservation of a rare serpentine ecosystem, a natural environment area underlain by serpentinite. 

The rolling trails wind through woods, miniature rocky passes, and open fields. Right by the road, you can park and walk about 30 seconds before getting into golden footpaths. Sunrise or sunset, either are gorgeous reminders of history and present; both solemn and reflective, and breathtaking in what nature has to offer.

Being the location for a photo session welcoming new life to the world, we waited for the sun to rise over the trees. Once it did, we had to work fast and we were all quite happy with the photos made that morning. 

Enjoy and make sure if you visit Soldiers Delight, to read up on the history and ecosystem!

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."
