Coronado Beach Maternity Photos | Maria + Paul
As a San Diego maternity photographer, I see a lot of couples visit San Diego for their Baby Moon. What is a baby moon? It’s a short trip that you take during your last trimester to relax and prepare for the arrival of your baby. The last moments you can sleep in and mentally prepare for the adventure that is to come. You can choose to do a staycation or a vacation somewhere nearby and preferably driving distance. In this Coronado Beach Maternity Photos | Maria + Paul were visiting from Arizona. San Diego is a common destination for many people from Arizona. It’s close enough you can hop in the car and come over.
Maria wanted a mix of greenery and beach. So we began at the nearby hotel they were staying at and shot around the courtyard. From there, we hopped in the car and headed over to Coronado Beach. Coronado Beach is a long stretch of beach. It has many different parts to it. I like to stay between the lifeguard station and the Hotel Del. This way if the clients want some shots of the del behind them it’s right there. I also like it because it has the sand dunes and some greenery on the sand.
They were such a fun couple to photograph! Super comfortable in front of the camera and with one another in front of the camera. I mixed up the posing with walking, sitting, laying on the sand. Always make sure to ask your clients what they feel comfortable with. Especially when dealing with a pregnancy client. Getting up and sitting down isn’t always the easiest. Make sure they feel comfortable enough to let you know what they are ok with and what they aren’t.
