We headed out to the Night of Lights in St. Augustine, FL for this maternity session with Monica and Robert! Celebrating the arrival of Miss Charlotte was perfect in this city, even getting photographs on the historic Charlotte Street!
Monica and Robert were some of my first clients, photographing their engagement session at Treaty Oak Park in Jacksonville and then their wedding at The Hilliard Mansion. These two are extra special to me because Monica is my cousin! I am so thankful for her love and support, trusting me with their most important and beautiful life events. The cherry on top is that Robert proposed to Monica at the Night of Lights just a couple of years ago. I could not be more happy for them as they anticipate Charlotte’s arrival soon! She is already surrounded by so much love and people who are excited to meet her.
The best part of having sessions in downtown St. Augustine is that their are so many backdrop opportunities no matter which street you walk down. From hidden gardens to colorful doorways, and the cobblestone streets that make anyone’s heart swoon! It truly is a romantic city. No wonder people come from all over the world to experience it’s magic, especially during the Christmas season.
Just a short walk this way is the historic fort… and a short walk that way is a gorgeous church with archways… and a little ways over here is a street full of character picked right out of a travel magazine. Yes, this is one of my favorite places.
In no time at all I will be photographing sweet Charlotte and watching her grow throughout this year and beyond. I can’t help but smile to think of how much love and anticipation there is already for sweet baby girl.
