A maternity session in Amherst, Virginia by Thuy Minh Hussey

I named this session "The happiness is in the field", based on a French movie. The storyline doesn't have anything to do with it, but seeing the fields and the mountains in the background reminded me of that title. 

Pregnancy is such a beautiful, amazing but scary time in a woman’s life. It is similar to nature, for its beauty and a certain fear of the unknown. But despite the adversity, a mother’s strength will get her through it all. 

And this beautiful session was also featured in the fine art film blog, Belle Lumière... that was my first time ever on that blog! What an honor!

A mother daughter picnic at Salubria, Virginia by Thuy Minh Hussey

In France, we love picnics, even in Paris! We love getting together with friends and family for coffee or a bite, and when Spring's here, it's so nice to lay a blanket in a grassy area, with some good wine, cheese, bread and a plate of charcuterie (I know it seems cliché, but it's true!).

Catherine from Davis and Main Style loves the concept of a picnic too, and created this family friendly setting, with some beautiful touches and outfits, like her daughter Elliot's whimsical waist cape and body suit.

Elliot loved those macaroons from  Cassis .
