Maternity Photography

Josh + Ari

I always enjoy working on maternity photography. But, it’s always extra special when they are old wedding clients. I really enjoy seeing the families grow, and I’m always flattered to be  part of their history.

I met Josh and Ari a few years bago, when they interviewed me, interested in wedding. We connected right away, and after that, they hired me for their Temecula wedding. It was a beautiful day, and together we created some awesome memories.

I was really happy when Ari contacted me again. They already had a little boy, and were expecting another child. This time, they were looking for a maternity photography session. 

First of all, we had some decisions to make. I always tell my clients, that the location is one of the most important factors on maternity photography. After exchanging a few emails, Ari decided on Solana Trails and Pacific Beach. Personally, I though those were great choices.

We met in Solana, where we started our little hike. Although this location requires some walking, I think it works really well for maternity photography sessions. After some hiking on the trail, we were ready for some beach photos, so we headed to Pacific Beach.

The Chrystal pier is one of my favorite locations to photograph people. The defused light coming from behind, with the wooden pillars, make it a very unique photo. 

To me, the highlight of the session was Josh and Ari’s little boy. He was really happy to be out in nature, playing on the beach and trail. It’s important that children doesn’t get bored at a maternity photography session. It has to be something they enjoy, and not something they are obligated to do. A bored child is something that always shows in the end product.

I would like to thank again Josh and Ari for trusting my work, year after year.
