christa's motherhood session


I spent a gorgeous summer evening with Christa, documenting her motherhood journey as she awaited her little babe! We met just before the sun started to set and it created a beautiful glow that accented her growing baby bump. The water was the perfect temperature for us get in and I was so excited that she wasn’t afraid to go for a dip! There’s so many things I love about sunsets on the Texas coast - from the cool summer breeze, to the smell of the saltwater, and the inviting blue water. It’s the perfect time to capture the fleeting moments in your motherhood journey. Some mommas love every moment of their pregnancy and for others it can feel like forever, but don’t ever for second forget the magic that you create and the strength of your spirit! I’m forever feeling grateful to document these precious memories for expecting mommas to look back on and cherish for many years.
