This was the sweetest little mini maternity session that I got to do a few weeks ago! I was thrilled when Jessica contacted me about doing some maternity photos. After meeting them I’m so excited that I get to see her and Nic next month to take some sweet little newborn photos for them. It was such a treat to be able to take their maternity photos! I’m really hoping that I get to capture this type of milestone for many more parents to be. Whether you’re expecting your first kiddo or your fifth, it’s amazing to be able to be a Livermore Maternity Photographer

Unfortunately our original date for the session got rescheduled because of the recent California wildfires that are raging all around us. But the date we ended up doing it on was the perfect weather. It wasn’t too hot and the sun was nice and glowing from the lingering haze that came with those fires. We headed to do one of my favorite spots for their session, so many clients have been choosing the spot lately and it makes me so happy! It really photographs so beautifully for any type of session.

Jessica wore a gorgeous white gown with off the shoulder sleeves. It was the perfect compliment to that cute baby bum. The white dress worked so well with the large eucalyptus trees that surround this location. 

I cannot wait to see them again and meet their little baby a just a few weeks! I really love being able to capture this season for clients, having your first little one is such an exciting time in your life. It really is such a joy to be there to photograph the little steps along the way.
