Here in San Diego you meet a lot of people that….are not from San Diego. It’s definitely a transplant city and you meet people that originate from ALL over the country (myself included). But when you do meet clients that are from San Diego it’s an extra special treat. In this case it was extra special because Jenna & Sky knew exactly where they wanted to take their maternity photos and it wasn’t the typical beach location. It was the most incredible hidden gem location that was nowhere on my radar. Rolling hills, solitude, wildflowers and boulders to climb; it was a dream! After I shared a few of their photos on social media my messages were a buzz with fellow photographers asking where I was!
This beautiful Mama-to-be celebrated her birthday with me! She said Covid put a damper on her birthday plans last year and she was pregnant this year so she wanted to do something nice for herself and have photos taken! SUCH a good idea! I loved making her feel special and beautiful. We also had the best weather! We had been in a chilly spell in San Diego but the weather was absolutely gorgeous this evening for their maternity photos in San Diego!
I love taking maternity photos, especially for first time parents. I love asking all the questions about the nursery, the potential names and their experience thus far. It’s hard to find a Mama that doesn’t like talking about their pregnancy, it’s all we think about after all. I’m happy to be that ear from a short while and bond over the wonder of being a woman! Plus your first pregnancy is so special; everything is new and exciting. I’ve only been pregnant the one time but I imagine the next pregnancy just won’t be quite the same. I’ll be distracted by my daughter and the hustle and bustle of a toddler. There won’t be as much time to sit and admire the miracle of my growing belly!
