Chesapeake Beach Maryland Maternity Portraits with Raychel & Jimmy

I cannot express how happy I am with this Maryland maternity session on the beach! Last year I photographed Raychel and Jimmy's farm wedding in Woodbine and was thrilled with those photos. Now, they are expecting a baby girl and asked me to travel to this private beach near their home for some maternity portraits. The baby is due next month and I am so glad the weather held out for these photos. I made a day trip out it, taking my daughter and husband down the western shore of The Bay to explore a little bit before I met up with this great couple. We checked out Chesapeake Beach and North Beach, both gorgeous but not as great at Brownie Beach where we did this Beach portrait session. I cannot be more pleased with how these photos turned out! Raychel is glowing in her buttercup dress. I'm so excited to meet little Haley too! Everything about this session was just perfect. We started with some shots in Jimmy and Raychel's backyard for more of a rustic look. Then we headed to Brownie beach for a change of scenery and change of outfit. I am in love with the buttercup dress in contrast to the green background. It was low-tide and I was able to walk pretty far out into the water with my camera for some of these shots. There were crabs everywhere in the water, biting at my toes! I didn't even mind because I knew the pictures out in the water were going to be great! Can't thank you guys enough. Everyone loves the photos and I am so happy for you both.
