Maternity Portraits: Claire | Jacksonville, FL Photographer

When Claire and I got together for her maternity portraits, she said she was open to any looks I wanted! We had so much fun creating – take a look.

I met Kirk and Claire through neighbors and friends a while ago. While kayaking, Claire mentioned she wanted to have maternity portraits done before their new baby Rowan was born. Obviously, I almost fell out of my kayak to tell them I was all for it.

Claire, who swore she felt like a watermelon, was actually stunning, as you can see. After an expert makeover by Lisa, we brought out some of her gorgeous maternity dresses she’d brought along for the occasion. She was a natural.

After some minimalist images like above, we used the all-white studio to take a couple of intimate portraits as well! So dang gorgeous. I snagged this lace robe right before our shoot and it now lives in my client wardrobe, so other ladies can use it during their own shoots – maternity or otherwise.

As a lot of my shoots do lately, we wrapped up Claire’s maternity portraits at Klutho Park, down the street from the studio. I brought along the flower crown as a last-minute impulse. SO glad I did.

We also ordered some prints from this shoot, and assembling them gave me all of the goosebumps. I just LOVE how they printed. The Fraleys will have these photographs to cherish and pass down to baby Rowan when he is older – and he’ll know how much his momma rocked it!

A giant and heartfelt thank you to the Fraleys for allowing me to photograph this moment!
