When Melissa contacted me inquiring on maternity photography I was very excited. She said that her husband, Bryan surprised her by saying he wanted to capture her pregnancy with pictures of the three of them (her, him, and the bump) and that he’d like to do them at the beach. Isn’t that super sweet? Rarely do I ever have men wanting to set up a photo session, so I just knew this was going to be an extra special photo session with the two of them. I had Melissa and Bryan meet me at my very favorite beach in Laguna, it is really breath taking BUT I do believe this couple (plus bump!) made it extra gorgeous…don’t you?
This photo was their very favorite from the maternity session…I can totally see why, Melissa is beautiful and she has that mommy glow about her. The light shining through her dress is just icing on the cake. Just gorgeous!
I have to say, this is personally my favorite photo from this session…and the last one of the session, I love capturing their LOVE and this photo feels so warm and full of life to me. I absolutely had a great time with Melissa and Bryan and by the end of our session we found out that Bryan and MY husband actually have known each other for a few years now! We had no idea, I guess it really IS a small world after all. I cannot wait to photograph this sweet baby girl when she arrives next month.
