Shara and Doug’s maternity session at the McNay Art Museum was so incredible to photograph! We photographed early in the morning on the grounds, so awesome!

I loved photographing this maternity session.  I had the honor of photographing Emilia and John’s wedding back in 2018 and was so happy when they reached out to me for this joyous occasion. We started their session out on the lawn where they hold most of their wedding ceremonies. The light comes through the trees there so perfectly. It made a magical moment for them. I love the blue dress that Emilia chose for the session, it is perfect for a baby boy!

Next, we went over to the gazebo and turned on the chandelier. Wow! The photos were so romantic. After that Emilia had a little moment to sit on the swing and relax. These two are huge Disney fans so we created some romantic images with the light coming through.

Finally, we headed inside to change, take a break, and get some photos on the gorgeous balcony.  After that, there was another outfit change and then we hit the porch for some golden light. The last part of the shoot had us in the tub in the bridal suite bathtub. We shot in the tub with flowers and it made my day!

I am so grateful that for the chance to photograph such a beautiful maternity session. Check out these other Family Portraits
