Beachy Maternity Shoot | Sonia and Cameron

By, June 14, 2017

It’s always a treat to hear from our wedding clients, especially when they have a baby on the way. Recently, we were delighted to hear back from Sonia and Cameron, who had a beautiful wedding in Newport Beach not too long ago. For the maternity shoot, they decided to go with a beach vibe, so we headed to La Jolla Shores. Between the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and the golden coast of La Jolla, we were able to capture many beautiful photo locales in one shoot :) Have a look at some of the highlights!

A New Addition | Old Poway Park

By, December 26, 2016

We first met Sandy and Doan when they hired us to photograph their engagement and wedding. They recently contacted us for a family photo shoot, and it was really nice to reconnect :) They now have a beautiful daughter… plus another bundle of joy on the way!

For the shoot location, we chose Old Poway Park, for its rustic and playful atmosphere. Between the vivid red box train, and the charming railroad tracks, it was the perfect back drop for an energetic two year old!

The blooming flowers (above left) created a subtle framing around Sandy and her baby bump :)

The tender moments we captured between Sandy and Doan, like the above right, shows how much their love has grown along with their family.

We were thrilled to photograph again for Sandy and Doan, and to document this new stage of life!

Bun in the Oven | Maternity Session Inspiration

By, November 18, 2016

We love maintaining a personal connection with our wedding couples, and seeing where life takes them. When a baby is on the way, we really enjoy going back and photographing the onetime newlyweds as parents-to-be. It is so much fun to get creative together, and the joy and excitement shows in the resulting photos :) As inspiration, we’ve collected a few of our favorite recent maternity photos, showing soon-to-be moms rockin’ the baby bump. Enjoy!
