Elegant Photo Session at Torrey Pines

I had such a marvelous time getting together with Lindsay and planning this session.  We headed to Torrey Pines State Park and drove to the top to get started.  Torrey Pines is large park with tons of trails which meant there was only so much we could see before the sun went down.  Oh, and that sun...we had a small battle with the sun as it kept hiding from us from time to time but after a bit of a fight, we made it work for our pictures and ended up with such a dreamy session!  It was such a wonderful session which included a dress from the amazing clothing site ModCloth.  I highly suggest checking it out, there is an abundance of things to choose from.  To really add to the session I got a bouquet from the same florist who made my wedding flowers, Designworks Florals.  She created a stunning bouquet. 

Sweet Sunlit Beach Maternity Session- Scripps Pier

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!

A Stunning Couples Maternity Session at Balboa Park- San Diego

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!
