This is probably our favorite couple from the past few years… we first met them when we photographed their first maternity and newborn sessions for their daughter.  It has been a thrill watching her grow and seeing her every few months since her birth!  This time around with new baby brother we loved incorporating big sister in the shots and letting her spunky little personality shine. The funny thing is that baby brother looks almost identical to his little sister as a newborn!  It brought back so many memories that we have shared with this family and made me feel incredibly lucky that this is my job and gift to share.

We did a little video of the shoot as well:

This lovely family was photographed for their maternity photo session at Temescal Canyon Park in beautiful Malibu, Ca. Interested in having us capture your belly photography as well? Check out our website and give us a call at 310-391-4500!

We also love hiking at Temescal Park, in Pacific Palisades and Malibu here’s what a Yelper had to say about the hikes there:

“This is a great moderate-level place to hike on the Westside. The trails offer a solid work-out, with a nice mix of both hills and flat ground. From multiple vantage points, there are beautiful, expansive views of LA, including downtown, Santa Monica, the ocean, and Pacific Palisades.

I’ve been here on both sunny, warm days, as well as colder, cloudier days and enjoyed myself just the same. Yesterday, when we first ventured out here, it was pretty chilly and overcast, so our views on the way up to Skull Rock were mostly obscured by clouds. The colder weather made for a pleasant trek, and we also managed to see a family of deer eating in a pasture. On our hike down, the weather somehow improved, and we were treated to wonderful, clear views of the water and surrounding area.

The park provides restrooms, water fountains, picnic tables, and a shop at the bottom, so it has all the important, civilized things you might need. Parking is also a breeze, as there’s typically ample (free!) street-parking available along Temescal Canyon Rd. and Sunset Blvd.

The only downside I saw was that it was pretty crowded on the way up. We were very close to other groups, so we had to walk at their pace.  It might be best to come here on a weekday to avoid the crowds.

In terms of tips, be sure to bring your running/tennis shoes since a lot of the trails are rocky and have loose dirt that can get slippery. Also, as always, be sure to bring sunscreen, a water bottle, and snacks.”
