MATERNITY and FAMILY photos: Scripps Beach Pier
Happy Mother’s Day!! The weather lately in San Diego has been quite fickle! Two weeks ago I went in the ocean, it felt like summer, and then all of a sudden rain and rain. I had a maternity shoot scheduled yesterday that my client was thinking of rescheduling due to weather changes. We decided to start a little earlier than scheduled and the maternity and family photos: Scripps Beach Pier came out great!
Can this family be more photogenic!! I thought I was photographing for a San Diego family magazine or something! They took direction so well and just were so comfortable in front of the camera. I kept joking with them saying that they definitely practiced before the shoot cause they were so natural!
She really had that pregnancy glow! Her face glowed! We started shooting in the rocks since there was some cloud coverage and we could be exposed. I left the pier shots for later for when we were finishing the maternity photo session. Here are some black and white edits I liked 🙂 Also plated with light leaks.
I love turning maternity shoots into fashion shoots! A woman ought to feel beautiful and super powerful when she is pregnant. I mean she is developing a human insider her! That is the ultimate power! So I want want them to feel comfortable, beautiful, and a preggo princess!
If you are wondering where she got her sheer maternity dress, it’s from Amazon. This looks like a similar one. White is a GREAT color to wear. I feel everyone looks great in it. I also like red, pink, yellow. Floral print is nice too. At the end of the day though, it’s whatever you feel confident and comfortable in because it will show in the photos.
