I like to think of sunny days! There are those people who love the rain, and I am not one of them.  I moved in the rain last week, and walking from my car to the studio in the torrential downpour this morning was no fun!  Therefore, I decided to blog one of my favorite maternity sessions from October when it was nice and sunny out.

This maternity photo shoot was taken at Temescal Canyon in Malibu, CA – one of my favorite locations for family and maternity sessions. I love how the light filters through the trees and creates beams of light that I can use to create my signature “hair glow” and plus the light creates such gorgeous texture and dimension in the background!

My favorite part about maternity sessions is when I get to photograph a couple together and really capture the loving interaction between them. What I loved about this particular couple is that they are so in love, so excited for the baby, and they just totally let loose and got silly during their session. The husband had me rolling laughing as he commented on all the “cheesy” shots we were doing and all the corny poses he did just to be silly and make his lady laugh. The couple is already throwing out funny ideas for the baby’s newborn session around Christmas…. I’m sure that photo shoot will be equally as fun 🙂

I especially love when she changed into the magenta maternity dress – it really gave her belly a great shape and added a lovely punch of color!
