0001 San Diego Maternity PhotographerJust three years ago, we photographed Paige and Ernie’s Engagement and Wedding.  We were so happy to hear from them this year when they contacted to document another milestone in their lives together. It was fitting that they chose to have the photos taken by the ocean, since their engagement session and wedding both included different beaches in San Diego.  They were both radiating a peaceful joy over this baby, and she’s wasn’t even here yet!  We are so looking forward to meeting her in a few days to document her first few weeks at home.  More photos to come then…0002 San Diego Maternity Photographer0003 San Diego Maternity Photographer0004 San Diego Maternity Photographer0005 San Diego Maternity Photographer0006 San Diego Maternity Photographer0007 San Diego Maternity Photographer0008 San Diego Maternity Photographer0009 San Diego Maternity Photographer0010 San Diego Maternity Photographer0011 San Diego Maternity Photographer

0001 San Diego family photographer natural documentary-2What an unforgettable shoot. Brooke and Kyle are an amazing couple who we first met in 2010 to photograph their engagement session on their family’s property in Julian.  We went on to shoot their incredible wedding (again on the property) the next year.  Five years later, they contact us to let us know they are expecting a baby girl and would like us to take some pictures. This is one of my favorite things about our job; to get to document numerous milestones in the life of a family.  We are so lucky!

All three shoots took place on family property.  The first shoot was on the grandparents property, the wedding was at the parents home, and this maternity session took place right near Brooke and Kyle’s new property.  All shoots involved a stop at Brooke’s childhood home, and the tree you see above (up on the hill) was a focal point that Rick and I were repeatedly drawn to.  Now, Brooke and Kyle have photos near this beautiful tree over a five year period; spanning their falling in love, getting married, and starting a family. I love the symbolism of the tree.

0001 San Diego Maternity PhotographerIt was just a couple of years ago that we got to photograph this beautiful couple when they were expecting their first child and again when their sweet little boy arrived.  So we were so happy when we recently heard from Leslie that she and Jordan were expecting another little one!  We hope you feel the light that emanates even more from this gorgeous mama, now that she has such a bright little boy with her and her husband this time around.0002 San Diego Maternity PhotographerThis photo just makes me happy.0003 San Diego Maternity PhotographerGorgeous Mama!0004 San Diego Maternity PhotographerTaj and his Daddy were playing by the water and no idea they were in this photo, but it’s so perfect that they are!  And the look on Leslie’s face is so sweet.

We were so happy to see Katie and Ted, whose wedding we photographed back in 2010, as guests at a wedding we photographed this Summer.  We were even more happy to see that Katie had a beautiful baby bump! This couple is just amazing, both helicopter pilots for the Marines.  We really couldn’t be happier to see that they decided to expand their family and we are absolutely honored to be there once again for an important time in their lives (perhaps the most special time ever).  Here are some images from their maternity session. And, we’ll share some images of their sweet baby tomorrow!

Here are some images from a maternity shoot we did at Mission Trails Regional Park. Rick and I hike and run here often, and the place has special significance for us, as we came here a lot when I was pregnant and also many times with our son, Dylan. We have memories of walking here during sunrise because he wasn’t sleeping well and well, we had to get out of the house in order to keep ourselves from falling asleep! He has explored the trails there from in the carrier on our belly, to off-roading in the stroller, and now, he runs with us! Our favorite time here is just before sunset as the sun recedes back over Cowles Mountain… the light is golden and with the surrounding mountains and light breeze blowing over the grasses, it’s simply serene.  We thought it was the perfect spot for Leslie and Jordan’s shoot.  Leslie looked so at home in the peaceful setting and she glowed with inner serenity, as I find that pregnant women often do. I absolutely loved Leslie’s choice of sweater! It was blowing in the wind and just so perfect for the setting.  This was just the most peaceful shoot, and the baby seemed to like it too, as he kicked alot during the session! We can’t wait to see him after he makes his grand entrance into the world.
