Kia | Jacksonville Maternity Photography

This sweet, young mama found her way to me through Instagram. (Hashtags really do work!)

Kia drove in from nearby Gainesville for her session. We chose Camp Milton Historic Preserve because she wanted her session to be in a very natural environment. The weather was very cloudy that day, with the sun peaking out every now and then. That allowed us to use any part of the park we wanted to, which is a very good thing.

Normally, I schedule my outdoor sessions about an hour before sunset. But, since we knew it would be very overcast that day, Kia and I met mid-morning instead. It worked out very well! It seems like there are so many “rules” when it comes to photography. It’s good to know the rules, but it’s also good to know that you can do what is the best in each situation. One great thing about switching the time is that my client didn’t have to drive back home (over an hour away) in the dark.

I was also pleased with Kia’s session because I discovered a new part of the park that I had never seen before. It’s funny how many times I’ve been to that park, yet this is the first time I had noticed that particular area.

Kia is a natural beauty, and she totally rocked her session! I’ve shown a few sneak peaks, but it was really hard to narrow it down to just a few images to show in this blog post. I’m so excited for her as she begins this new chapter in her life. She is a senior at UF, and will graduate soon after the birth of her child. I really admire her for pressing on and finishing her degree. This last semester might be a bit challenging, because her baby is due in the middle of it. Hopefully, she will have some very understanding professors. Her graduation will be a blessing to both herself and her baby!
