Stormy beach | Jacksonville maternity photographer

For months, Florida had been seared with summer heat, the dry land bursting into forest fires that consumed thousands of acres, and smoke drifting into Jacksonville so thick that the skyscrapers faded ghostlike in the horizon. Finally, the rain arrived, our lawns revived and lush. The water has been much needed, and I love being able to sit with my girls on a rainy afternoon, the rain beating a soothing rhythm on our skylights. Rain for photography, though, is a trickier thing. On one hand, a downpour is likely to ruin that perfect hairdo (not to mention expensive camera equipment), but on the other hand, stormy weather can make a pretty backdrop. The rain stayed away for this couple’s maternity session, but the clouds were especially dense with the promise of rain the next day. This mother-to-be is stunning, and right away, I could see how supportive her husband is and how happy they both are. I can’t wait to meet their baby girl in just a few weeks!

The sky was very grey overall, but a patch of fiery clouds over the dunes was a lovely backdrop.

There’s something so serene and beautiful about beach dunes.

I love how carefree she is here. And doesn’t she look amazing? The last trimester of pregnancy can be difficult, but she carries it off so lightly!
