Scripps Pier Maternity + Family Photos |Harkirat + Harjinder
This is my first destination maternity shoot! I didn’t go anywhere, but my clients traveled from the other side of the world to visit San Diego. Since they were planning on having their child here, they decided to do a maternity shoot as well! It was a combination of maternity+ family photos: Scripps Rocks. Since they had 2 young kids, we decided to shoot in the morning.
I have mentioned before that it is possible to still mimic that magic hour light, even in the morning! As long as it’s still early on enough in the day and you have tall objects right where the sun meets. It gives that flare.
They were a very nice family and her husband was very supportive. He booked the shoot and even wanted to buy her special dresses for the shoot. I of course, recommended my go to: PinkBlush Maternity for dress options. He loved the site and he even sent me screen shots of what they got! I could feel the excitement they had about the shoot.
Of course then, there were two outfit changes! I loved that they went with a solid print and a beautiful floral print. It really mixes up the photos. The floral print was her favorite! Both dress colors looked beautiful on her! I really loved the rocky backdrop. It looked like they were on another planet!
3 generations were present during the shoot! Their parents also joined in the shoot, as well as their two children! It was such a great opportunity for a family portrait! Everyone was super excited to be welcoming grand child / child #3! The brothers were going to have another little one to play with! You could tell the eldest was already protective of the sibling to come, he was very sweet hugging his moms belly and kissing her belly!
