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!
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!

We picked such a perfect day and gorgeous location for this maternity session. Scripps pier is a location that many photographers enjoy photographing due to its beautiful light! You can see why below! It also helps that my wonderful model Lindsey wore this beautiful aqua/blue dress to accommodate with the soft light this beach has.
We had a fun time wandering around the beach and climbing up rocks to get photos. Lindsey brought her daughter along to the shoot, and since Lindsey is a photographer herself, her daughter was definitely not new to being in front of the camera. With Lindseys husband being away in the military, we're hoping these photos of her pregnancy will send some love his way as the days are getting shorter and he can be reunited with his family. I'm excited as you spend your last weeks waiting for your little boy to arrive and add one more member to your family!

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!
