Parents-to-be Shara and Keynan Jackson recently completed an indoor maternity pictures session with James Hill Photography in Atlanta. Although the couple had planned for outdoors maternity photos, the weather did not want to cooperate that day. Rather than fight the rain or attempt to reschedule with their busy schedules, Shara and Keynan opted for indoor maternity pictures and loved the results.
About the Couple
Shara was born and raised in Minnesota where she gained more than 25 years of dance training experience. She danced with the University of Minnesota dance team while earning her Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. The team is widely respected for having won five championships. It was this experience that sealed Shara’s love of entertainment and sent her to Los Angeles where she worked as the creative and department director for Star Education for six years.
From Star Education, Shara moved on to Lula Washington Dance Theater where she worked as an instructor. She was part of former first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative and performed for four consecutive years at the White House. Some of the current organizations that Shara works with include:
- Heroin December Band
- Prince Dancers
- Radio Dancers
Additionally, Shara currently works with Aveda National Hair Conference as the national choreographer.
Keynan is currently a pilot for United Airlines. He decided on his future career early in life when his mother, a flight attendant, enrolled him in a program called Little Flyers. During the program, he had the opportunity to take control of a small plane. That was the moment that sealed his desire to work as a pilot full-time when he got older. Keynan received his bachelor’s degree from the University of North Dakota.
The Jackson’s Maternity Pictures
Shara is due to give birth to a baby boy this summer, the couple’s first child. Normally, Shara and Keynan don’t especially care to have pictures taken of themselves. However, they made an exception for this very special time in their lives. Because of Shara’s busy schedule with dance and the fact that Keynan had to fly out with United Airlines in a few days, they decided to make the most of their indoor maternity photography session. A friendly, outgoing couple, Shara and Keynan had a wonderful time working with James to get the perfect poses and backgrounds.
Baby’s First Pictures Already Scheduled with James Hill Photography
The Jackson’s signed up for our Belly & Baby package that gives them two professional photography sessions. The first is during Shara’s pregnancy and the second is newborn photos of their baby boy. They have reserved their time for August and have requested to work with airplane props because of Keynan’s profession. Clients may choose one or both sessions according to their preferences.
