I am so thrilled to have been able to photograph beautiful Y for her maternity session, and I am so excited to meet the little guy in mama’s belly in just a few weeks. I have been photographing mama Y’s daughter, Chloe, since her newborn session almost two years ago, and it is the BEST feeling to be able to watch my families grow. Sweet Chloe is going to be a great big sister, and I can’t wait to photograph baby boy in the new Sophie Crew Photography studio!
We headed to one of my favorite beach spots for our maternity session in La Jolla, and although June gloom gave us quite a bit of overcast weather, mama Y was glowing so much, she gave us all of the light we needed You’re gorgeous, Y!
So here’s a cool side note story! I had gotten to our beach spot quite a bit early, just to check out weather and scout out some shooting spots, and decided to walk around the beach a bit before their arrival. I was standing around, watching this adorable couple pose for photos together for who I assumed was maybe a friend photographing them. I though ‘aww, must be an engagement session’… but I couldn’t see anything shiny on her finger. Hmmm, just as I was trying to figure out what the occasion might have been, I noticed two guys holding surf boards sneak up right behind the couple… one of the boards had ‘Marry’ and the other had ‘Me’ written on them. It was a surprise engagement session! All of sudden, the cute guy got on his knee and proposed! It was the CUTEST thing ever! So, to the gorgeous couple that was at Windansea Beach getting engaged this weekend, CONGRATULATIONS! Wishing you the best!
