We took this couple's maternity and newborn photos for their first child, and were ecstatic when they told us they were expecting again!
Having taken their last maternity session at Guadalupe Oak Grove Park, they wanted a different location and style for this photoshoot. When she told us her dream was to have their photos taken at the beach, we said YES!
We decided on Manhattan Beach in Half Moon Bay because it has smooth sand and is less populated. Upon arrival to the location is was pretty overcast. We were a little concerned with the lack of glow from the sun, but it worked so perfectly to create moody and dramatic photos. Plus, the sun decided to show up towards the end of the shoot and gave a spectacular sunset!
Sage green is our favorite color, and her dress is from none other than Baltic Born (we highly recommend them for all maternity dresses!). We love how the wind created a dramatic effect with the flowy fabric of her dress!
We wanted to try out some photos IN the water and the mama-to-be gave no hesitation in getting her feet wet. It may have been a cold, blustery day but this family (even their little guy!) were all troopers--even getting in the water for some photos!
