What do you get when you mix a glowing mama-to-be, her sweet husband, and a beautiful hilltop location? This, this is what you get! The result is so beautiful and magical. These sessions always have me in awe of my job as a Walnut Creek Maternity Photographer! I was thrilled when I got to meet up with Yang and her hubby to photograph her before their little guy arrives! And i’m so thrilled that I will get to see them all again at their San Francisco Newborn Session later this fall. But before we get to that part, let’s talk a little more about maternity photos!

I absolutely love that I currently offer a petite maternity session. I think it is the perfect fit for some beautiful photos of that bump before your little one arrives. You can learn more about this offering at this blog post here. Now, back to this session! Yang had her hair and makeup done by the amazing Linh Artistry. She chose to wear a gorgeous white dress, which was the perfect complement to the golden hills. And I loved how the breezy evening allowed for her dress to flow in the wind. It was the perfect touch, and added so much movement and life to their photos. I enjoyed talking with mom and dad to be. Hearing about their fluffy fur child and how they like to go hiking in their free time together. We even started chatting about baking sourdough and I’m so thankful we did because that conversation reminded me that I had fed my sourdough starter earlier that day. If not, surely I would have forgotten to make bread, it truly is the little things. Haha. Anyways, scroll on below to feast your eyes on this beautiful session!
