A few months ago I received a message from Jackie inquiring about a maternity session. She told me a bit about herself, her desired look for a session, and things she wanted to include. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we shared the same creative vision. The most important part of it all was to make sure that Jackie felt empowered, beautiful, and confident as hell. My goal was to give her an experience that she could look back on and know just how amazing she is, both as a woman and as a mother. We included special details in a few of her photos as a surprise for her family, and did the main part of our session at one of my favorite locations just in time for some gorgeous evening light. One of my favorite parts of this experience was watching Jackie become more and more confident throughout the session. By the end I wasn’t having to give her any direction at all. She was absolutely owning it. Everything about this session was perfect and I feel so lucky to have been trusted to capture such a special time for Jackie.
