Elena’s stunning Maternity Session {Manhattan Beach maternity photography}

I met with Elena and Kris on a super windy day in Manhattan Beach for her maternity session. This is their first little one, a girl(!) and they couldn’t be more excited. They decided that while on a baby-moon in the South Bay from the east coast, a little photo session would be a fun and beautiful way to document their trip. Elena even did some shopping at the fabulous boutiques of Downtown Manhattan Beach and picked up this stunning dress for her session. She wore it beautifully and to my surprise and insane joy, she was willing to get right in to the water! Oh my goodness, this is defintiely in the top 3 favorite maternity sessions in the 13 years of my career!

Pretty Santa Monica {Santa Monica photographer}

I had the great fortune of living in Santa Monica for 4 years and loved almost every minute, the 405 and the 10 freeways were the banes of my existence…but what Angeleno really enjoys sitting in traffic?

My time is Santa Monica was great both personally and professionally. Who wouldn’t love slipping off their shoes for work and running around on the beach capturing fun family moments? Or better yet, playing at Pacific Park, the games and the bright colorful rides all make for fun portraits too!

All within a half mile are some beautiful locations, both out in the open and some hidden gems as well! Here are some of my favorites from Santa Monica, and these are only in a small part of Santa Monica, the city truly lends itself beautifully to photography.

Bobby and Jessica {Santa Monica Maternity Photographer}

I met Jessica and Bobby not so long ago when I photographed them for their engagement portraits.

We had such a great time meandering the court yards of Marina del Rey, then the sunset in Santa Monica with the pier as the background.

I can’t tell you how excited I was when I got the call that Jessica was expecting!!!

I photographed her maternity session at their home. I love in home sessions, everyone’s relaxed and comfortable, there’s no rush, and there’s no kooky-loos!

I”m a bit late on posting these, because baby has already arrived, I will post the newborn images in a couple of days!

Until then, here’s beautiful and glowing momma-to-be Jessica and happy hubby Bobby

Marta’s Maternity Portraits {Redondo Beach Maternity Portrait Photographer}

I met Marta through her hubby Alex who worked at a store I frequented. When I heard they were pregnant, after gushing my “Congratulations” to them, I had to photograph them!

I love documenting the beginnings of a family. Although they had Tu, their ginourmously cuddly massive Bull Mastiff, before I met them, and I think that might have been beginning of their family (as lots of people do start off with 4 legged babies before having their own), I’m extremely happy they let me capture their growing family.

This is Tu. He’s awesome. I want to wrestle him, then cuddle with him.
