intimate beach maternity session on padre island | corpus christi photographer
Where do I even begin to explain how perfect this maternity session was on the beach? The light was incredibly golden, the wind blew the sand over the rolling dunes, and the water was still warm enough to wade in! Leana trusted me every step of the way, from her wardrobe to directing her into moments that brought out the beauty of her pregnancy. She was going to welcome her third baby girl and we talked about how the time alone at the beach was some much needed serenity! I knew only having one myself that her role as momma, wifey, and business woman kept her very busy, but she wore her hats with such strength!
A short time later, I went on my family vacation and while out of town she delivered her perfect baby girl on the eve of Hurricane Harvey! I couldn't wait to get back into town for her gallery reveal and to see how she was doing. Even though she had to leave the hospital a day after her daughter was born, go a week without electricity or fresh water, she met with me glowing with the same beauty since the last time I saw her. I was so proud of this amazing momma I just met a couple weeks earlier and so happy to see her and her family doing so well considering everything they had gone through! It is always such an honor to be let into the lives of my mothers and couples, and to document their journeys in such an authentic and intimate way!
