Jacksonville Newborn Photographer | Jacksonville Photography | Maternity

As a newborn photographer, it is always such a privilege to photograph clients while they are still expecting. Pregnancy can be tiring, but having the chance to show these moms just how beautiful they are is so rewarding! The excitement and anticipation of the new baby is so contagious, and being a part of this special time in their lives is such a joy! Working with this mom was so fun, and she made it so easy!

I first met Kayla when she was in her second trimester of pregnancy. She was absolutely glowing and her personality was infectious! I knew right away she would be so fun to work with. We sat down together to discuss her vision of the ideal maternity session over coffee. She had a few Pinterest ideas saved (which is so helpful by the way!) I was able to visualize exactly what she loved in these portraits. Beautiful location, flowers, tall grass, and sunset. I had the perfect location in mind!

A few weeks later, it was finally time for her session! Kayla had her hair and makeup professionally done and a dress chosen. It was all going to plan! But of course, as Florida luck would have it, the forecast that day was showing a chance of rain. We took a chance and headed to our location in Palatka anyway. I arrived early, and the rain just kept coming. And it rained harder and harder…until it was nearly dark outside at 3:30 in the afternoon. So, after looking at the radar and noticing that there was a bit of clearing in the weather towards Jacksonville, we decided to head that way. Thankfully Kayla was such a good sport about all of this (and the spent all of that time in hair and makeup, we were NOT giving up!) We finally arrived in Jacksonville to our new location just as the sun was setting. It ended up being absolutely perfect! We could not have asked for better.
