Emily already had a solid plan for her maternity portrait session when she reached out to me.  It had to be a sunrise session and it had to be on the beach.  My ears perked at sunrise and I was hooked immediately.  As she sent me photos of the dresses from Free People she had already bought for her photos I began to drool.  They were soft, feminine, and even a little bit sexy.  Who says the pregnant female body can't be sexy?  Not me and not this expecting mama.  I dare say her incredibly sweet husband, Dave, would agree as well.  Even through sleepy eyes he looked at his wife, the mother of his child, like it was the first time he had seen her.  These two are seriously electric.

The details and logistics of Emily and David's portrait session had come together so smoothly but none of us realized just how beautiful that sunrise was going to be.  Just before the sun peeked over the horizon the sky was lit up in shades of pink and orange that reflected off the water creating an ethereal scene.  It was complete perfection.
