Sweet friends, we have a great bonus session for you today! The sunflowers are in full bloom here in Florida. Before the season ends, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph a sunflower maternity session! You may recognize this mom-to-be from a few blogs… it’s our dear friend and forever bride, Sasha!
Excitement filled my heart during my roughest month this year. Sasha and Joey announced they were expecting. Even more excitement and joy entered my life when they discovered they are having a baby girl! Future Haleigh Nicole Bride coming our way!! While perusing the internet, I noticed Sasha gushing over the sunflowers that were in bloom. She was trying to decide if now was the time to do a maternity session since she loved the sunflower look. Sasha is about 26 weeks along now, which isn’t the typical time we do maternity sessions. However, we always think outside the box with Sasha. I texted her immediately and we collaborated on a gorgeous session.
Sasha and I drove out to the local farm where they had three sunflower fields growing. Florida is known for having two seasons: summer and slightly less of a summer. Boy oh boy was it scorching hot out. The sweetest gentleman working at the farm drove us out to the closest field in a golf cart so poor Sasha wouldn’t have to walk. Never having experienced sunflowers in real life, I didn’t realize that some sections were over 6 feet tall, which was stunning for photos! With fans in tow, Sasha and I adventured through the sunflower fields, capturing this amazing moment on her next journey in life.
Baby Feliciano will be making her appearance in September, and we will have another maternity session coming soon with Joey and Judah! But for now, take a peek at Sasha’s sunflower maternity session!
Huge thank you to Mick Farms for letting us photograph in their fields and for being so accommodating!!
