Maternity shoots have a special place in my heart and this session was no exception! It had all the sentimental aspects that just tug at your heartstrings. The Steele’s got engaged here in Galveston so having their maternity session at this location was very important to them! They are preparing for their first human baby, but they brought along their first fur baby – their dog, Maggie! Isn’t that so fun? I love when clients bring along anything that is personal to them, including pets! Maggie had a great time at the beach and it was a lot of fun to see her enjoy running in the water.
We decided to take the Steeles photos at Pirates Beach in Galveston. It was a perfect location because it’s a private beach, meaning that it has a very secluded feel. We were able to take full advantage of all the beauty that the Texas beaches have to offer! The Steeles originally scheduled their session a couple of weeks prior but the weather didn’t cooperate with us for that date. We had to reschedule and I am so glad we did because the sunset on the day of their shoot was absolutely stunning. It filled the sky with pink undertones that made for the perfect backdrop.
The Steele family are ideal clients because they trusted all the instructions I gave them and didn’t doubt my process in the slightest. I appreciate it so much when my clients trust me completely! Libby got her hair and makeup done for this shoot and she was gorgeous. It was a pretty blustery day, but Libby was a champ dealing with the wind and didn’t complain at all. She even had two beautiful dress options that were both lovely on the beach. We had a great time at their shoot. I hope all the best for them as they prepare for this new chapter of their lives!
