Waiting on Baby E – Stark Family Maternity Session (Apollo Beach, Florida)

Whitney, Adam, and Ian woke up before the sun on a Sunday morning to meet me in Apollo Beach for their family maternity session. We could not have asked for more perfect weather and beautiful golden morning sunlight! It was truly a beautiful setting!

Whitney and I used to teach together at the same high school. While I have taken a short break from teaching to be home with my own sweet family, Whitney continues to rock as a high school science teacher. She is truly a rockstar and is this year’s “Teacher of the Year” at her school! Amazing!

She and Adam are the perfect pair and wonderful parents to their sweet toddler, Ian. Soon they will be welcoming another little boy and he is truly blessed to have Whitney and Adam as his parents and Ian as his big brother. I am looking forward to seeing their beautiful family grow in just a few days! Eli will be here soon and I cannot wait to meet him at his newborn session.

Whitney, Adam, and Ian – I know you know how much you love each other and my hope is that these portraits captured the love you all share. May you look back on these with a smile to not only your faces, but to Eli’s when he sees his family while he was growing in his mama’s belly. My favorite photos have to be of Ian kissing baby Eli and giving him first pump. (Fun Fact: Research shows that babies in the womb will respond to touch. Can you imagine baby E giving his brother a fist pump in return? LOL!)

Thank you for choosing me to photograph your family! Congratulations on soon becoming a family of four!

    You are truly a talent in capturing the love and happiness that surrounds this growing family.

    You went above and beyond during our entire professional relationship! From recommending this fun and beautiful location, to providing wardrobe suggests, to helping keep our toddler giggling throughout the session (you’re SO good and patient with kids)!

    I have spent the last hour scrolling through these photos and a smile has yet to leave my face. Again, thank you for reflecting the love and appreciation that I have for my husband, my son, and my soon to be baby boy through your lens.

    It was an absolutely remarkable experience working with you.
