Golden Isles Maternity Photographer | Beautiful St. Simon's Island Maternity Session

I love being a maternity photographer in the beautiful Golden Isles here in Georgia.  There are literally so many beautiful places to choose from!  Take, for instance, this recent session.  This beautiful St. Simon's Island maternity session took place in the client's own backyard area.  It made for a stunning backdrop for this fun couple's session!  Make sure you take notice of adorable little Lucy the dog in a few of the photos.  Her story is one of the sweetest stories ever.  When this couple moved into their newly built (and gorgeous!) home on St. Simon's Island, little Lucy was found wandering around the area.  After checking with the vet and surrounding area, it seems this sweet girl was homeless.  In poor health and malnourished, they took her in and have literally nursed her back to health.  At the time of this session, Lucy had only been a part of this family for two weeks, but you've never guess it.  Where they went...she went!  I'm not sure who needed who more here.  It seems that these parents-to-be need her as much as she needs them.  Though they are probably not aware of it, both of their faces light up when they were talking about Lucy or looking at Lucy.  It was a magical thing to be a part of.  I think Lucy is going to be an awesome big sister when baby boy makes his appearance later this month! Sharing a few of my favorites from this session:

Okay, so I shared more than just a *few*.  I couldn't help myself!  These two were so great to work with and there are several more images that I still have to edit.  I just couldn't wait to share these!


I have an ever-growing studio wardrobe of high end clothing for Mamas and Babies that my clients are welcome to use for any of their sessions.  Shades of whites, beiges, neutrals, grey.  Purely simple and keeping the focus on baby.  The wardrobe in this session was styled by me.  Did you know I'm also available to style your session, or that I can also shop for you for your session?  Anything to make it easier for my clients!
