Okay, I hadn't shot a ton of maternity until lately and let me just say, I can't believe how I forgot how much I love it. That goes for lifestyle newborns as well. Kristen & Deke were amazing and so much fun to get to know. This poor mama went 2 weeks late before she had her adorable baby boy, and I had them frolicking all over the beach a couple of months prior. The west coast will always be one of my favorite places to shoot. Every beach has something different to offer, with that magical California golden light. See for yourself....

Stay tuned for their newborn session to be blogged soon as well! I loved getting to know these wonderful people <3

For any mama's looking for a cute maternity shop, Kristen's dress is from Sew Trendy Accessories.
