Beach Maternity Session | Bryce and Gabrielle

July 28, 2020 Destination Maternity Session



As an Indianapolis newborn and family photographer, I love getting to document the maternity stage for sweet couples, especially when it includes lots of laughter and ocean waves.


Ahhh I've been eagerly waiting to share with you this stunning beachfront maternity session!! I mean just look at how gorgeous this soon-to-be family of three is! But before I get ahead of myself, allow me to do a formal introduction. Gabrielle is my oldest sister, and in 2017, she married the love of her life, Bryce. Since they live in Florida, we unfortunately only get to see each other about twice a year. But you can guarantee that every time we're together, it includes getting updated photos! Engagement, wedding, anniversary, and now maternity, my all-time favorite so far.


This is such a beautiful stage in their lives as they await for the arrival of their sweet little girl! And let me just say, I have been DREAMING of the day that I would be an aunt and spoil all my little nieces and nephews! We chose to photograph their maternity portraits on the beach where it captures their warm-weathered life in Florida. And as the waves splashed onto our toes and the sun began to set behind the horizon, it couldn't have been a more perfect location to document their excitement during this time!


Gabrielle and Bryce created two stunning outfit duos from the guidance of the complementary Annika Jean Style Guide to not only look beautiful, but also feel comfortable! Gabrielle's blush lace dress is from Stellie Bellies, a maternity consignment shop in Palm Harbor, FL, and then we discovered the light blue dress and white dress shirt during our shopping adventures at Target. With their timeless wardrobe choices, all the attention is brought to their beaming smiles, and you can just tell the love that they have for each and their new little one shining through! Be on the lookout for Baby H coming to The Journal in October! I'm just so excited for these two!
