Maria Estella’s pregnancy photos were taken on a beautiful morning at Jacksonville Beach, FL where the calming sounds of the sea and natural light from the sun makes for a perfect photo session, one of my favorite locations as a photographer. I’m sure baby Emma was kicking with excitement!
I was so excited when Maria Estella and Jesus asked me to shoot their pregnancy photos, as good friends of mine it was a pleasure being a part of this special moment. We met few years ago through Jesus’s brother who was studying with us. I saw the growth of their love, which carried into a prosperous wedding and then the conception of baby Emma .
We arrived early morning at Jacksonville Beach and Jesus wasn’t awake but the light was gorgeous and he finally agreed that it was the best time for pregnancy photos. We had the beach just for us! It’s always so funny seeing the guys half asleep, while the women are always so excited.
We had a blast playing with the sand and seeing the name of their baby girl written in the sand made them ecstatic.
Moments like these, make my job as a photographer very special because I get to share these milestones with my friends and clients when they book me. Please take the time to view the beautiful photos below.
Here is a beautiful poem from Brittany Rhnea:
Awaiting a little girl
Your presents is being awaited
The time is coming near
your have filled our life with joy
With your little kicks, and your heart beat that we hear
You have made such a change
That brought a love so dear
We promise to keep you safe
To protect you from all you may fear
There will be so many memories to make
That will be sure to bring mommy a tear
As we wait for your arrival
Your daddy kisses, and touches you
Always waiting for you to move
When you finally do
His face light up with joy
You know his love for you is true
Your life will bring so much joy
Bringing all the family together
Making a family of our own
With a loving daughter, mother, and father
