Karlie + Justin | Maternity Session

Maternity sessions are probably one of my favorite sessions to capture- I mean, can you blame me? There is something so amazing about capturing motherhood in its glowing and growing state. Karlie + Justin are expecting their first baby, and I was thrilled to work with them and create these beautiful pictures. 

We had two separate sessions: one with Karlie only and seconding Karlie + Justin together.

The first session we had was in Allapattah Flats, Palm City. She looked gorgeous and fit right in with the mood of the day, looking gorgeous against the wooded backdrop of the park. Her outfits were PERFECT for a dreamy maternity session! Though there are countless options out there, we went with more modern outfits that showcased her beauty. 

For the second session, our location was the House of Refuge in Stuart, which is one of my very favorite places. With golden sunsets, a hint of a breeze, beautiful skies, and warm water, the beach is the perfect location in summer times for photoshoots In Florida.   That I got to photograph a maternity session in the water made it even more fun.  As for photographing a couple as sweet, loving, and amazing as this one, well that pretty much made it perfect.
