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!

These two were a gem to photograph. When I had first arrived to their session, my settings on my camera felt different, and my camera was not focusing , it was shooting blurry shots so I knew it had something to do with calibration or focus. They were full of grace and understanding, and I could feel their trust in me as I problem solved . Even though on the inside I panicked, wondering if my camera was malfunctioning or broken perhaps- I then remembered I handed my camera to a guy at a wedding to jump in a photo this past weekend - and he changed my settings to manual focus 🤦🏽‍♀️😂 Long story short, I’ve had some tough days since my husband’s been gone for work for 6 months- juggling the business and my little ones at home alone, most days I feel like I’m running around like a chicken with its head cut off... but meeting clients who were patient/understanding showing me so much grace in a moment where things didn’t go as planned , made me feel so grateful, made me eager to capture magical shots for them as we connected with eachother even more during our session . Show some grace to someone you love today, I promise it will mean the world to them.

Also, how awesome is Calafia State beach in San Clemente with its diversity of scenery? Alessia & Jeff wanted a beach that offered different scenery for their maternity session aside from just the open sand, so we utilized the rocky boulder areas, lifeguard tower and walked down to the water at sunset. It was a gorgeous evening with that soft diffused light we photogs always love ;)

Lucky to have captured these two lovebirds as they baby mooned at Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel Resort. There’s something so special about documenting “the way life was” one last time on camera before the arrival of your newest family member. I’m loving all these baby bumps in front of my lens lately and these clean modern beach maternity vibes are my jam. I love that soft light from  the cloudy days and this evening offered us just that!

The Epler family were a delight in front of the lens, not only is this mammma stunning, but sharing the spotlight with her adorable boy and sweet husband was extra special. Maternity sessions are always special to me, their is something so beautiful about photographing expectant mothers, their glow, and their sweet growing bump and expanding family.... This Sunset Beach spot was perfect for this family session as I was able to capture them with the perfect beach weather that also highlights that open seaside brush on the pathway walking down. With all the wonderful Orange County photography locations its hard not to make this one a favorite, with its diverse scenery.

Love a good sunset maternity session, nothing beats those dreamy pastel skies and crashing waves as a backdrop to a session! These two expecting parents were such a breeze to photograph and made my job super easy! I loved the FillyBoo Maternity dress that this expecting mamma chose to wear, it photographs so beautifully! Cant wait to capture their first new bundle of joy soon!
