  • A very special maternity session | Palos Verdes Maternity Session on the beach

  • Beverly is a friend, and I loved seeing her soak up every minute of her 3rd pregnancy. She had a 7 year break between #2 and #3 and with that comes a whole new appreciation of the wonder and excitement of it all! She didn’t do a maternity session with her first two boys, but she knew immediately that she would this time around, and I’m so glad she did. And SO glad that she chose me to do it for her!

  • glowing | Palos Verdes Southern California Maternity Photographer

  • I have been pregnant four times, and I don’t think I could have ever been described as glowing, but it’s the best description for Rebecca in these images. She looked absolutely gorgeous in a simple white dress and the light was just beautiful that night. We hiked along the trail and had so much fun, we actually lost track of time. Oops! Even after I realized how late it was and had texted my husband a very sincere apology for being late, I couldn’t resist stopping at least 3 more times on our way back to the car :). It was just all too perfect to resist!! Each stop was worth it b/c I love each one of her images. So much, that I’m actually sharing all of them here instead of just a sneak peek! (A simplicity session includes 10 images, but I shared one in an earlier post, so there rare 9 here.)

  • I’ve only been home from this session for an hour but I absolutely couldn’t wait to upload the images and get to work on them. I love it when the stars align for a perfect session. Rebecca is pregnant with #3 and absolutely radiantly beautiful. We worked together to style her for this session with a romantic, bohemian feel. It can be hard to feel beautiful when you are 8 1/2 months pregnant, but I hope that she knows how beautiful she looked tonight!

    Only one for now…but more to come for sure!

  • Sunset Maternity | Rancho Palos Verdes

  • A beautiful family and a beautiful setting makes for some beautiful maternity shots! I met up with this sweet family of 3 at the Trump Golf Course on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. We enjoyed the 10 minute hike down to the beach and captured these images of their family on the way. Can’t wait to meet the newest addition in January! Stay tuned 🙂

  • Maternity at the Beach | Torrance Beach

  • My own maternity pictures! Taken at 33 weeks, by one of my best friends, Gretchen, during a quick visit last month. You can check out more of her work here!

    I have one last session this weekend, and then I’ll be taking a maternity leave during the month of September. I will be accessible by phone or email to any current clients and will be scheduling sessions for October and beyond. Please get in touch as soon as possible to schedule your session for the fall, as I will be limiting the number this year!

  • Just one... | Redondo Beach Maternity Photographer

  • I have a dinosaur birthday party to throw tomorrow morning, and after this session this morning, I spent the rest of the day working on that. BUT, when I saw this image, I knew I needed to edit it and get it up here immediately. I just love it!! Vanessa and Tim are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their little girl and they are the sweetest couple. Often, it’s hard to get adults to NOT look at the camera…we are trained to stare at the lens and smile. But Vanessa and Tim were much more interested in looking at each other and I just love that!!!
