I had a great time walking around Balboa Park and photographing these two days (literally) before they officially became parents and welcomed their little girl into their family! Pregnancy and the whole delivery rarely goes as planned and how we envision which led to the decision of having the exact day their little one would enter this world! Their little girl was tiny but cute and healthy!
I had the pleasure of photographing this cute little family who were expecting a baby girl in the coming weeks. A few months prior to photographing this family, Meghan was the one photographing me while I was just as pregnant with my little guy! I'm so thankful for the photos that documented my pregnancy so beautifully (we have these photos now displayed in our home because they are true pieces of art!) and am glad to have documented their last family photos as a family of 3 and the joy as they awaited their daughter/sister.
Since both Meghan and her husband Will are photographers, they get lots of photos of their own children and each other but having both of them in front of the camera together was a great gift to them.

Brenna and Josh are seriously such a sweet couple! I love being able to be myself and be comfortable around a couple. It always makes posing and photographing them go alot smoother! I had a great time photographing these two throughout Balboa Park. I took them through the woods to a spot I hadn't yet been to before but I'm glad I did! Finding a forest of trees in San Diego isn't always the easiest but Balboa Park has such a variety of locations, I'm glad we tried this out! Expecting their first child, a little girl, I can tell after meeting with them and getting to know them a little that they are going to be awesome parents and have such a great time with their little girl :)

Christine and Justin had such a beautiful maternity session! The location was absolutely beautiful despite the fact that it was a very hot and humid day, we had to work around hundreds of Pokemon Go players all over the park! I've shot many session at this location before and never had it been so busy...I guess it's a popular game, haha! Anyways, despite the many people looking down at their phones and taking up locations I normally use, we all made away with a great session.
Christine makes such a beautiful pregnant lady, and of course it helps when you show up in a gorgeous flowing maternity gown! Thank you guys for being so easy and laid back to work with, and being up to getting in between tons of thorny rose bushes :) Doing things a bit dangerously always make for extra special pictures :) Just a short while till your baby girl is here!

Stacy and Richie rocked their maternity session this past spring. They we’re a fun and easy couple to work with and I had a great time getting to know them. This is one of my favorite parts of photographing couples. I love meeting others and getting to know about them and make a lot of connections. Along with the natural look of their session Stacy wanted to use a few different props she had. I don’t normally use props in my sessions but the ones they chose we’re super cute and had good meaning! Also, those little blue moccasins we’re absolutely adorable, and believe it or not are from Old Navy! I really want to find some similar for our baby boy due in October!
You may notice the cute little onesie they are holding which has the month/year little baby Heath would be welcomed into the world. Though Heath was expected in April, he decided to make his entrance slightly early, so having these pictures displaying April made for a nice little joke in their family, especially since these pictures are now displayed in baby Heath's room!
When I showed up to meet Heath for the first time outside the womb and take his newborn photos, seeing the photos of Stacy and Richie’s maternity pictures displayed in his room we’re so encouraging! I love seeing work from previous sessions displayed on the walls of client’s homes. This has always been my goal; to give clients so beautiful they can’t help but display them on their walls.

It was such a joy to shoot Roxanne's maternity pictures at Balboa Park. This place is always full of life and when we were there, full of music as well.
Roxanne and CJ are a military family with three little ones (soon to be four), about to move from San Diego, and head over seas once this new little one arrives. I enjoyed photographing Roxanne and Cj, while at the same time, getting to know a little about them and their lives. Roxanne, who is a budding photographer herself, was able to enjoy the luxury of being in front of the camera this time. It's always fun getting to know the people you're photographing and it's fun to be able to connect on a photography level and sharing the things you're passionate about.
One of my favorites from this shoot was being among the cactus gardens. It is such a dreamy little spot, when you're in there, you don't feel like you're next to a city, or right by the highway. It's a nice little escape, as well as a fantastic spot for pictures!
