There's nothing I love more as a Camp Pendleton Maternity Photographer, than getting to spend some time with a precious little baby bump. I love the glow of an expecting mother. Whether it's their first baby, or their last, the glow is there and it's magical to witness.
Ravan is no different. I met Ravan when she hired me to be her homecoming photographer. Her and Mike were expecting little Kayden. They worked hard to get pregnant with this little nugget. We originally scheduled her session a little earlier than most maternity session because Ravan had a history of delivering early. In fact, she was put on bed rest the day before our session. She was determined, though, to make sure she had these maternity photos done.
We went to Del Mar Beach on Camp Pendleton. It's honestly one of my favorite beaches. The flat sand creates a beautiful reflection when the water brushes up on it. The day of our session was very overcast and cloudy. Normally, for golden hour session, I LOVE to have that golden light. However, that wasn't an option for this session because sometimes the weather just doesn't want to cooperate. I couldn't be more in love with the beautiful tones that the overcast created. I knew with her dress that the fog over the ocean was going to look incredible. I wasn't wrong. Mommas... never be afraid of an overcast day.
Ravan, Mike and Mason all did such a wonderful job during their session. Ravan "slayed" in the Sew Trendy dress she chose from my maternity client closet to wear. The "boys" both did great as well. I always like to promise as little pain as possible for the men who step in front of my camera ;) Mason was also a great dress thrower!
