I loved working with this gorgeous mama for her beach maternity session in Carlsbad, CA.  Such a beauty!  There is nothing like a glowing mother to be at the beach!

Loved working with this beautiful mama, expecting her baby any day now!  She was stunning in our maternity gowns that we provide to our clients to use during their session either in the studio or outdoors.  Although I love both styles – studio and outdoor – there is something beautiful and classic about a maternity portrait made in the studio.  So lovely!

Loved meeting this beautiful couple that are expecting triplets!  So exciting!  I love beach sessions… and I always choose locations in the San Diego area that have sheltered areas above the beach, in addition to beautiful sandy beaches.  I have a few favorite spots.  I also provide wardrobe for my clients to use during their maternity session – gorgeous gowns for the mom to be!  I have a beautiful selection, and this gorgeous mama to be wore four different gowns during her San Diego beach maternity session.  I want to make sessions EASY for my clients.  Just show up with your hair and makeup done (I can recommend local makeup artists) and I can have the rest prepared for you!

I will start off by saying that my little ones are not so little any longer.  They are 10 and 12, and although I love the older stage that they are in now I have to admit that I sometimes miss that they were once tiny.  Which is why I love being able to offer these gorgeous Motherhood Sessions in my Carlsbad studio.  I will be releasing dates for these Limited Edition sessions coming up in a few months.  I provide the outfits/gowns and outfits for babies up to one year old.  These nursing / breastfeeding sessions are best for babies under a year.  The little ones tend to be distracted as they get older.  Both of these sweet little ones were 8 months old.

Something about the all ivory set and babies bonding over breastfeeding with mom, is something that lasts for just a short time.  What an amazing time to capture through portraits!

Loved working with beautiful mom to be, for her third pregnancy.  She looks fabulous!

I provide a gorgeous selection of wardrobe for my clients to use during maternity sessions.  This takes a lot of work out of your session – you don’t need to bring anything!  I am new to Carlsbad, but I have already started connecting with other local businesses.  Including the amazingly talented Claire of Claire Alyse Makeup, who did hair and makeup for our gorgeous mama.  I highly recommend working with Claire for your maternity session.  You want to look your best, and she does an incredible job!

I loved this amazing session with this beautiful family.  Mom chose to use some of my gowns for her session.

What a beautiful session!  It rained on the day we had scheduled, and this family originally wanted an outdoor session.  But I am glad that we shot inside, because I have a spot in my heart for a classic studio maternity portrait.  Remember that I do have a beautiful wardrobe available for my maternity clients to wear during their session!

Such a gorgeous session!  Will share more San Diego maternity portraits from the session very soon.  This dress is available for my clients to use during their session.  I have a lovely collection of wraps and dresses available for my clients – this takes the work out of planning your session!

What a beautiful session!  I loved working with this sweet couple, due with a little boy very soon!  I can’t wait to meet him.  And I can’t wait to share more images from this stunning session!

Remember that working with me takes a little of the work out of having your portraits done. I do have a beautiful selection of maternity wardrobe for my clients to use, including the beautiful green gown by Sew Trendy and the ivory wrap in the last image.
