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!
