Hey y’all – we’re taking you to historic Charleston today for a romantic maternity session that is oh so sweet! Clay and Jessie’s babymoon included this gorgeous maternity shoot in downtown Charleston and we’re obsessed. Talk about natural beauty! This day captured the organic beauty Charleston has to offer, and perfectly represents this couple’s personality. There was a true glow to this light and bright day – scroll down to see all of our favorite moments!
The photographer shares:
Clay and Jessie traveled all the way from Chicago and had planned a week on Kiawah Island for their babymoon. While in the area, we had planned a beautiful maternity session downtown Charleston, but Clay had a different idea and wanted to propose! We first started talking about proposing during the maternity session, but once Clay was here and had the ring burning in his pocket, he didn’t want to wait another second! The next evening, we captured their amazing beach proposal and the rest is history.
A few days later we met for their planned sunrise session at Hampton Park. Jessie was just glowing! Don’t get us wrong, her gorgeous right out of the spa and sunburn belly look for her proposal was adorable, but she arrived with her hair and makeup done by Contours & Curls, and she looked like a model! Oh my goodness!
We had so much fun with these two, even though it was before 8:00am in the morning. The breathtaking light, the dreamy mossy trees, and excitement from these two parents-to-be, made for such a beautiful session! A few weeks later we received the text we had all been waiting for… he’s here! We’re SO EXCITED for them and cannot wait to meet their new little man!
