Sunrise Maternity Session at the Lake | Austin Maternity Photographer

I am so excited to share Hailey’s beautiful sunrise maternity session today! This incredible session almost never happened, but I am so happy it did. Hailey almost skipped maternity photos but decided last minute she wanted to document this beautiful season of life.

We ventured to a nearby lake in the early hours of the morning and started creating magic. For her sunrise maternity session, Hailey decided on a beautiful pink-toned dress that was perfect for the water. There are so many of the dresses in my client closet that can be used in and out of the water, so don’t be afraid to get creative with your sessions! Your session should feel exactly like you.

I know pregnancy can be so tiring, exhausting, and uncomfortable. Professional photos probably get pushed to the bottom of your ever-growing to-do list as you prepare for your new babe, and you might not feel confident in front of the camera. I totally get it, but that’s what I’m here for! Pregnancy and motherhood is a beautiful journey that is so worthy of being celebrated. I hope you’ll choose to document it.

If this sounds like your vibe, let’s start planning your dreamy sunrise maternity session!


Hi, I’m Jillian. I’m super happy you’re here! I’m a motherhood and family photographer with roots in Central Texas. Capturing raw, authentic emotion and telling stories of families across the Lone Star State {and the globe} is what brings me immeasurable joy. I’m a wife, fur mama (with serious dreams of being a stay-at-home dog mom), and professional multi-tasker. I’m an Austin native with a deep love for Texas and this beautiful city. You can usually find me with my family, hiking in the mountains (Colorado feels like home), or booking a trip somewhere new. Wherever I am, you can be certain I’m always chasing sunsets and epic views, and my camera is always at my side.
