I loved meeting this amazing family and photographing them as they savor those moments before life as three becomes life as four!
This family is just amazing and their love for each other comes through so naturally. This family is just weeks away from welcoming their new addition into the family, a baby boy! Mom and Dad made a special visit out here from their Coast Guard base for their maternity session in Sonoma County. We photographed at a really beautiful location in Petaluma with rolling hills in the background and sweeping sunset views!
The night was magical, and we had subtle gusts of wind that would occasionally come through. I love wind during sessions! See how dynamic the photos are with the wind going through mom's hair and her dress?! It adds a touch of intimacy and drama to the photos, rather than stagnant shots where nothing is moving.
Their little girl was a little shy at the beginning, feeling most comfortable with her mom wrapping her arms around her and keeping her warm. I love her sweet personality, and as the session went on, she started to forget about me so much, and just enjoy this time with her family. Some of my favorite images from this session are her hugging mom's expecting bump, closing her eyes and smiling. She's going to be an amazing big sister! ❤️
