37 weeks | orange county maternity photographer

A very warm January morning in Southern California… the perfect day to be at the beach!
Here is a little sneak peek from my latest session… a maternity session with good friends, Jamie and Mike,
who are expecting their first baby!  We started off at the beach in San Clemente.

When we headed for higher ground, we found a cute little hillside for some solo shots of mom-to-be. 
Here is one of my favorites.

I like to think that baby worked with me on this next shot.  Right on cue, he (or she!) decided to give mom and dad a big nudge and I was able to capture this sweet moment between the three of them.

Here are a few more favorites from the session.  Guess my little sneak peek isn’t going to be so little.:)


Thanks Mike and Jamie for spending your Saturday morning with me.  I can’t wait to meet your little one and I am looking forward to your newborn session!  It’ll be here before we know it!
