Desirae and Jeff // Borderland State Park Maternity Session

This was my last official shoot of 2016 and boy it was a great way to wrap it up!

First of all, this is my second time working with Desirae and Jeff. I worked with them back in August when I shot their engagement session. Best of all - I get to work with them again next August for their wedding. 

Secondly, this shoot was a collaboration with The Sweetbay Shop which is located out of Wakefield, Massachusetts where I currently live. I wanted something special for their session so I suggested adding a wonderful accessory such as a floral headpiece! Desirae loved that idea so I was in charge of getting the piece and she was in charge of finding a dress to go along with it! I was hoping to collaborate with someone local who could provide the headpiece and The Sweetbay Shop replied to my inquiry and they hit the ground running. I gave them a few ideas of what we were looking for and they created a gorgeous piece that went PERFECTLY with the session! The Sweetbay Shop is a retail shop and and full scale floral design studio located on Main Street in downtown Wakefield. I was able to work with Beth and Liz, a mother/daughter team with an eye and knack for creativity! Click here for their Facebook Page!

Lastly, the location and lighting were amazing. We shot at Borderland State Park in Easton Massachusetts during the golden hour. We planned her dress outfit a head a time, but she also selected another outfit which was a bit more casual! Desirae and Jeff were amazing to work with - AGAIN. I think they remembered all the moves from our last session and took this shoot with stride. Desirae of course looks amazing with just a few weeks left to go! 

I truly enjoyed this last session of 2016. Desirae and Jeff made it one for the books along with a wonderful collaboration effort from The Sweetbay Shop. 

Cheers to the new year, new babies and new marriages!
