You have no idea how excited I am to share these beautiful maternity photos taken none other than my favorite Kate Carmichael Photography. Being super pregnant I did not want to overheat, so the idea of a beach maternity shoot was perfect. Luckily I did not overheat or melt, thanks to the ocean breeze. Bonus: you don’t have to wear shoes on the beach!
It’s crazy to think I have not had an “official” maternity portrait session until this pregnancy. Sure, we took photos, and had some pretty ones, but nothing like this. I am so happy that I did this, as this is the last baby.
I also think it was a solid choice that I did this session by myself, because there is a lot of moving parts when trying to get the whole family together (coordinating outfits, happy attitudes, etc.) for photos. We’ll cross that bridge in the fall when we take our annual family photos. Shooting alone meant I could have multiple dresses and take our time capturing the perfect shots.
Before we get to all of the amazing photos, I wanted to share a short video I put together. Kate so graciously captured a few video clips while we were together, and I edited the footage with a little letter to our baby boy. This video means so much to me and I hope you give it a watch!
Maternity Portrait Video
All the tears editing that video together, I tell ya! Now let’s get to the photos. I cannot narrow this down so we’re dealing with a photo heavy post.
Beach Maternity Shoot
Would you believe me if I told you these maternity photos were taken in Galveston, TX? This is a total gem of a location. Feel free to email me if you’d like to know the spot!

I will forever cherish these photos of me and little baby boy before his big arrival. I cannot believe he will be here NEXT Friday!
