Baby Shower | Brentwood Country Club, CA

Two baby girls are on their way this spring! It was meant to be that sisters, Lauren and Kathryn are both expecting, AND are due just a few weeks apart. 

So much love went into this celebration and the whole event felt like it was straight out of a fairy tale. The story book cookies and customized tea cup treats were so clever and tied all the details together.

I cannot wait to meet these lucky little girls!


Kelly + Rafa | Maternity | Claremont, CA

Kelly and Rafael are good friends of mine, so I was so thankful when they asked me to commemorate them before they become parents! We were lucky to have the sun shine right as our shoot started. This was a special location for them, they had their engagement pictures taken here as well, it's a cute spot called Blaisdell Park.  I was lucky enough to find out what their little one's name is before they share the news, and I can't wait to meet her in March!

Jeff + Ashley | Maternity | Oak Glen, CA

I am so happy for Ashley and Jeff!  They will become parents to Baby Jackson in February. I loved meeting their two adorable pups, and when Jackson arrived, the excitement will only build!

  We enjoyed a crisp, Saturday morning in apple country to capture that warm and fuzzy comfort of fall. Enjoy some highlights from their session!


Sarah & Robert | Maternity | San Francisco, CA

I was so fortunate to have been connected with Sarah and Robert from a mutual friend Courtney, in South Orange County. The timing was right to schedule a shoot with them at Baker Beach in the Bay, and boy was I thrilled to be chosen to document this amazing moment of their lives.

I adored the details they brought to the shoot, especially the hand made booties for their baby boy. Both Robert and Sarah had such an ease during our shoot that made me so happy for their little guy to come. They were high school sweethearts. Swoon!  

Sarah has the perfect 7 month belly by the way, I mean seriously.

I continually fall more  in love with San Francisco, its amazing people, and such a magical energy!

Karianne + Shane | Maternity | Malibu, CA

There are just three more months before Karianne and Shane welcome their first child!  They could not be more excited to meet their baby boy. First, we ventured to a beautiful alcove near Escondido Falls and embraced the rich, golden light peaking through the trees. The weather was on our side as dark clouds rolled in right as we wrapped up put shoot on Malibu's seaside sand. 

I cannot wait to meet Baby De Hope!
