The Grotto at St Leo {St. Leo, Florida} Maternity Photographer

The Secret Place  

 In the Bible the Psalmist David paints a picture of how a baby is meticulously and wonderfully created in the "secret place".  

Psalms 139:13-16

13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.

St Leo Maternity Photographer

As I considered locations and theme for this maternity photoshoot, the words in the scripture "the secret place" kept coming to mind. Tucked away and hidden from the world, the serene Grotto at St Leo was the perfect "secret place" to capture the beauty and essence of motherhood. 


And let's be honest, it's not difficult to capture "the beauty and essence of motherhood" when you're photographing a gorgeous mother-to-be like Jenna. 

Jenna is already mom to a beautiful little girl and expected to deliver another baby girl, Noah Jane, the first week of September. Don't you just love the unique baby names she chose?

Jeremiah 1:5

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen or to hatch.
-- E.B. White, Charlotte's Web
