As a La Jolla maternity photographer, I often get requested to shoot at the beach. There are so many options to choose from along the beautiful La Jolla coastline. Just because you are at the beach, that doesn’t mean you can’t get fancy! Feel free to wear any type of outfit. From casual jeans and a top to a full length maxi dress. That is exactly what happened in this La Jolla Scripps Beach Maternity Photos | Mareike. If you are planning on getting your feet wet, or your entire body, I would opt for a more affordable dress. You may not want to spend so much on dry cleaning.
Apart from the fashion aspect of the San Diego maternity photo session, you may also want to consider props. This is by no means an obligation, but a nice complementary touch. You may want to include items like a pair of shoes, block letters that spell out the name (if one is already chosen). Any jewelry piece, accessory. Another fun idea that Mareike brought to the session was a baby book. She knew she would be reading this book soon to her baby Leah, so she wanted to include it in the session.
As a San Diego maternity photographer, I never tire of the beauty of Scripps pier! It is a very popular spot! You may expect a line to shoot inside, under the pier. While you wait, you can shoot just outside of it. All aspects of the pier are photo worthy! If you can, try to photograph there when the sun is hitting the columns. The way the light hits it is beautiful!
If you are looking for places for maternity fashion options, check out PinkBlush or Amazon. Order early enough that if you need time to exchange or look for something else you can. Keep in mind though, you don’t want to order too early that your baby bump has grown since then. Always try it on the day before the shoot! You don’t want to risk wardrobe malfunction the moment of the shoot.
