I’ve had the honor of photographing the Calhoun family since Jennifer was pregnant with Knox. Now they are expecting their baby girl, Lennox , any day now and I get to be a part of witnessing their beautiful family grow. I always feel so incredibly honored when a family chooses me to capture their family as it grows because it feels like I am a part of the journey with them .

This family though, let me tell you- they are some of the kindest most humble people you’ll ever meet. Jennifer is a gem, always glowing as a mamma to Knox and as a wife. You can feel her love for that sweet boy of theirs and it’s so deep and beautiful, makes me never want to put my camera away. Not to mention, each time we get together for a session, it feels like Jen and I are long time friends catching up, we laugh a ton and just have fun during her session.

This Newport Beach maternity session was a dream, not only because of the sweet overcast day we lucked out with , but because this family is the sweetest to capture . Can’t wait to meet their baby girl soon!

So I’m incredibly behind on blogging guys! I have quite a few fresh new sessions hitting the blog soon though! 

This Shaw’s Cove Laguna Beach Session had that soft dreamy sunset light that I just love! The Dowden’s Family came all the way from Indiana to visit our California beaches and I swear they look like Californians, don’t they? Little miss Emily (age 2yr) is about to be a BIG sister! She was full of many expressions and excitement which made it such a joy to capture her! Not to forget to mention her adorable little boho dress her mamma managed to find for our session, I mean how cute are those sleeves?! This sweet girl is so incredibly deeply loved and it shows! Grandma Karen reached out to me to capture the generations of her family and I am so honored to have been able to document their growing family for them while on vacation. I mean, what better way then on vacay right? 

If you have been putting off family photos or trying to get a large session done, now is the time to do it! you wont regret having these tangible memories for years to come with those you love!

For this mamma-to-be we wanted a session full of earthy soft pastel tones. When Elizabeth contacted me to document this special time for her and her husband Robert, we brainstormed a color palette similar to the colors you see during the sun going down at the beach. We decided on a dreamy beach location; Shaw’s Cove, Laguna Beach. As a SoCal photographer, I'm a sucker for a rocky shore with pools of salty water, pebbles and boulders and this spot had just that for us.

Elizabeth picked up some flowers at the local market to incorporate in her session . She wore a flowy gown and then changed into a tighter more fitted gown that accentuated her belly a bit more. We really made our visions come to life! This was such a dreamy romantic session! It was a great day for a maternity shoot.
