I had the pleasure of meeting Ana when I joined the Belly to Cradle team a few months ago. As a repeat doula client, she decided she wanted her birth captured as she and her family welcome a precious little boy into the world.
I'm excited to be able to preserve that sweet birthday, and as we patiently wait for his arrival, I thought now would be the perfect time to share with you some more of his gorgeous momma's maternity gallery. She was an absolute natural, and as stunning as they come.
Ana was one of maternity models for my first set of beach maternity photos (she is actually the first momma I've EVER photographed on a beach). I was a little nervous, admittedly, that the learning curve for beach photography would be steep. Thankfully, the light and airy scenery made for an easy capture, and I'm so thrilled that such a gorgeous place is practically in my back yard. We ventured out to Perdido Key, Florida to Johnson's Beach.
Johnson's Beach is a beautifully maintained local favorite that is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. I love it because there are plenty of access sites to choose from, and a place to rinse off near the pavilion when you are all finished. #bonus
