Bun in the Oven | Maternity Session Inspiration

By, November 18, 2016

We love maintaining a personal connection with our wedding couples, and seeing where life takes them. When a baby is on the way, we really enjoy going back and photographing the onetime newlyweds as parents-to-be. It is so much fun to get creative together, and the joy and excitement shows in the resulting photos :) As inspiration, we’ve collected a few of our favorite recent maternity photos, showing soon-to-be moms rockin’ the baby bump. Enjoy!

Sweet Beginnings at Balboa Park

First comes love,

Then comes marriage…

Then comes a BABY in a baby carriage! :)

This familiar jingle definitely rings true for Sarah and Jonathan! Last March, we had the privilege of photographing their intimate seaside wedding in Laguna Beach. Not long after, the couple delivered news that a baby was on its way! With maternity portraits in mind, this darling couple stepped behind our lens again to preserve this special time in their lives.

The shoot took place in Balboa Park, with its stately architecture and blooming gardens. Along with Sarah’s effortless bohemian flair, the park setting lent itself to maternity portraits that were relaxed and heartfelt. These images will no doubt be shared with the little one in years to come, but you can check them out now!
