Beautiful Maternity Beach Session in San Diego

Celebrating the anticipated arrival of #2 with a maternity session in La Jolla, CA

I truly enjoyed photographing beautiful mama-to-be (again), Jessica, for her beautiful maternity beach session a few weeks ago at one of my favorite La Jolla beach locations – Windansea Beach.  It was the perfect day – we arrived just before sunset and the clouds were already so magical, gently providing us with just the perfect amount of filtering from the otherwise harsh sun.  The light was even and perfect!  I personally prefer when the weather is a bit more overcast and cloudy as I love the look of the more evenly lit, colorful sky.  I always hold my beach sessions in the late afternoon, starting just before sunset.  This is when the sun is starting to dip down, allowing for that warmer light to hit us.  When there are no clouds in the sky, that evening light is so warm and inviting, but in photogrpahy-land, can sometimes still be a bit too bright to achieve those saturated colors in both the subject and background.  It is right when the sun is about to dip down in to the ocean that the light is just right, and that is when I get into ‘hurry’ mode, getting as many poses as I can during those last few minutes of ‘perfect’ light.  And by perfect, I mean perfect for me.  Each photographer has their own style and beauty.  This is my own personal ‘magic’ time.  So, when we arrive at the beach, and the clouds are already filtering that bright sun for us to begin with, well, we have a bit more time to move around and get that perfectly even light from start to finish!

Jessica looked absolutely stunning in her light pink maternity gown, with the wind flowing through her beautiful, long hair, and that glow, oh the pregnancy glow!  Here are a few images from our maternity photography session at the beach!  Enjoy!
