Miami Beach Maternity Session | LaRae

Miami beach maternity session

This is what happened at the Matheson Hammock Park Beach in Miami a couple of weeks ago... maternity session with my beautiful friend LaRae.  

You might remember this gorgeous face from one of my posts earlier this year, the Bedazzled, Strong & Beautiful shoot...  Since then LaRae completely recovered, and is now expecting her first born precious baby girl, Emerson. 

You will looooooove following her journey on her blog site Shades of Rae... beautifully written online journal of a strong woman embracing her body image... while preparing for motherhood to raise her daughter with strong values to be proud and confident, regardless of circumstances or opinions of others.  She's documenting her journey and wisdom as she continues to heal and grow, with love. Her self-portraits are incredibly stunning,  her stories will deeply touch your heart, and her video "You Are Going To Be My Greatest Adventure" is absolutely breathtaking...  you MUST see it, it will give you goosebumps. 

It was an honor to photograph you again, dear LaRae, and cross this part of your life path. Thank you for your open and loving heart.

Made this shell necklace for this shoot the night before the trip... something with smooth texture to compliment delicate shape of her belly...
