La Jolla Beach Maternity Photography
Maternity Photographer San Diego | Sophie Crew Photography
I had so much fun meeting and photographing this gorgeous mama to be. Gordana looked simply stunning in her beautiful light pink dress that she chose for our maternity session at the beach a few weeks ago. We headed to Windansea Beach in La Jolla, which is one of my favorite locations for expectant parents. The rocky backgrounds add so much texture and fun to my images. It’s been super low tide lately, so a lot of rocks that are usually buried under the ocean are now visible. There is also more space to walk on the sand lately which is nice! I’ve held photography sessions at this beach where only the rocks were walkable!
Anyway, the forecast called for overcast skies the day of our session. For photographers, we kinda like it! It gives us not only even lighting, but also, overcast and cloudy skies allow nature to paint the sky naturally. That moment just at sunset usually calls for the most colorful skies – I love it! Here are a few images from our maternity photography session. I can’t wait to meet this little newborn baby too!
Here is something pretty amazing…
Check out the difference is skies that nature had to offer us that evening… These images below have me shooting south and angled lower than my gorgeous mama-to-be. The skies are bold and dramatic. The images following this set are shot opposite of these… facing north. See the difference is could and sky? They almost look like both sets of images were taken on different days. Shooting south produced some dramatic images where as the ones shooting north produced more whimsical, light and peachy skies. Gotta love the beauty of nature!
