Scott Family Maternity Session | Fairfield, CA

Evelyn is going to be a big sister! She is so full of personality, and is smart enough to know we had lollipops as bribes and we were gonna use them! In between shots, she'd call out "POP!" and we'd bring it over for a few licks (bribes!) and then she'd give us these big ol cheesy smiles. Smart kid! Congratulations, Scott family, on your new baby coming next month!

Alicia + Stephen's Rainbow baby Maternity Shoot | Vacaville, Ca

It's not often I get to capture special moments like this one. When Alicia and Stephen asked me to capture their rainbow baby's maternity shoot I was beyond humbled. This gorgeous couple made it easy to show just how much love they already have for their little boy Kian. Kian you are one lucky boy!

Pro tip: When adding props like smoke bomb's for a colorful effect, make sure to time them just right. Here you can see we got the perfect rainbow cloud as I snapped a few photos, focusing on the upper half of their bodies. 

Thank you again Alicia & Stephen! This maternity session was one of my favorites to shoot!

Cat + Ale | Maternity Session in Point Bonita, Ca

To say I had a blast shooting this lovely couple would be an understatement. Last month I met Cat and Ale at the Marin Headlands to shoot their maternity session. They are expecting their first baby due in April and I couldn't be more excited with how the photos turned out. From the rolling cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean to the graffiti-ed building we hiked up a cliff to find, this location brought out their personalities so perfectly. When shooting maternity sessions I recommend bringing a few items with you such as shoes, books, toys or clothes that you may have collected for your little one. Here the the couple brought baby's first pair of Jordans, a Lauryn Hill pillow and this adorable AB to Jay-Z book ( I mean how cute right?). Next we moved to a location overlooking the ocean to create a romantic bohemian vibe. Each setting has it's own unique touches which made the day even more beautiful.
