The weather was dark and moody when we started this beach maternity engagement shoot.

But believe it or not, I absolutely LOVE cloudy days for photoshoots!

It’s perfect because the clouds act like a giant softbox, and diffuse the light, making everything soft and even.

A fact that was not lost on Danika, who also dabbles in photography.

Luckily though, the bad weather held off.

So armed with our storm clouds, and the threat of rain, the three of us headed out to the beach to make some magic.

Get to know these two lovebirds a little better in today’s blog.

Beach Maternity Engagement Shoot

Danika and her fiancé Jason are expecting their first child at the beginning of July.

It’s almost here!

They wanted to get away – just the two of them – so they planned a baby-moon weekend in Virginia Beach.

Since Danika and Jason are planning their wedding to take place in Mexico next year (olé!), they wanted to have some great photos to use on their save the dates as well.

We definitely knocked out a lot in this photoshoot!


Danika and Jason, thank you so much for allowing me to capture such a special time in your lives.

I can imagine the joy and excitement y’all are experiencing, and I can’t wait to see the photos of your new little one!

Treasure every moment, it goes by so quickly!
