2015 was a year of many firsts for SBP - one of which was a maternity session ... on a boat ... and an island!
Jacqueline and husband Chris purchased a family boat they keep on the St. Croix River last year and when Jacqua was expecting baby #2, they knew they had to incorporate the boat into the maternity session ... I was so glad they picked me to continue documenting their family! They spend so much time on the water that big sis Beau probably feels like she's part fish :)
My boyfriend Luis and I traveled over to Stillwater on a warm Sunday night in late June to spend a few hours on the boat. As always, Jacqua had some amazing pieces to work with - her style is so stunning and makes my job so easy! It was so special to capture the three of them together, filled with such expectation for this little one to arrive.
The black and white image above is probably one of my most favorite images of 2015: as soon as I saw it happening through my lens, I knew it was pure magic. So many metaphors happening here - the expectation of pending motherhood, the strength and femininity of the posing, the reflection in the water and the creeping roots. So vulnerable but also so strong.
I loved every minute of this session and can't wait to get back on this boat for baby's one year session! Baby Lolo will make her big debut on the blog soon - come back to see this sweet girl and her big sis :)
