Hanna Park | Jacksonville Beach, Florida
It is so exciting when you see a family grow. Kristen and Dave were married last August, and I was thrilled to hear they were expecting a baby girl. Being total beach people, we went to Hanna Park for their maternity pictures. It might have been one of the most fun and fastest shoots I’ve ever done. We only had a few minutes before the sky broke open and the storm hit. That’s Florida for you – one second it’s blue skies and the next you’re running to the car. It was so sweet, in the opening picture it was sprinkling and Kristen was worried about my camera and I was worried about getting that perfect shot. A month later, we welcomed baby Maggie to the world. She is simply precious and the perfect addition to the DeSmidt family. I love being a part of these special moments and know that I have years of family portraits to look forward to.
