“You are glowing!” One of the phrases that every expecting mama wants to hear, right?! Meet Candace and Chase, excited first time parents, adorable couple, and bursting with adoration for each other and their first bundle of joy! This Wesley Chapel glowy maternity shoot was so much fun and full of the best sunshine. Candace is my amazing hairdresser, @southernrootsbycandyrose on Instagram, which explains her fabulous hair. Specifically, you can check out her page here.
They took a leap of faith and trusted me to follow along to this unique location for their glowy maternity shoot. Believe it or not, this Wesley Chapel photo spot is next to a supermarket parking lot and neighborhood retention pond. While I was driving past this area one day I knew the second I laid eyes on it that I needed to do a shoot here. Great light, hanging moss on big oak trees, the sun reflecting off the water; it just goes to show that you can make any location look magical! Sometimes the most unsuspecting locations make the perfect backdrops for your special moment. Undoubtedly, this is one of those spots in Wesley Chapel. Because of this, it’s become a little secret spot for my clients.
It wasn’t hard to make magic happen for this Wesley Chapel glowy maternity shoot! Obviously Candace and Chase are so in love and excited to meet their baby boy, Tanner! Look at those little baby cowboy boots! Basically, have you seen anything more adorable?! The perfect combination of sweet and southern! The love and excitement for sweet baby boy, Tanner, was visible in every look exchanged between the two parents-to-be. They were completely at ease, and their love for each other and their newest addition is evident in all of these photos.
Looking at these photos, you would never guess we are at the edge of a Wesley Chapel parking lot. Photography magic (aka my skills haha) mixed with a glowy golden hour, and lots of first time parents excitement makes for a gorgeous and peaceful maternity shoot. Take a look and see for yourself! The aqua water and Spanish moss is certainly a combination too good to resist. Until next time, keep your eyes open. Magic may be just around the corner!
