Gina’s Sunset Maternity Portraits

In the midst of a month of family photos for the holidays, I met up with one of my favorite mamas Gina for some simply stunning, dramatic maternity portraits. Gina is Ava’s mom, and we just celebrated that little one’s first birthday! And now I get to spend the next year with the family all over again with another Baby’s First Year collection.

Both of the dresses you see in this post are pieces from our maternity wardrobe collection. These two are from Sew Trendy Accessories. When you book your maternity session, I’ll tell you all about the dresses we have for you to choose from.

This location, that dress, that light, and this absolutely beautiful pregnant mama make me so very happy. I feel so privileged to be able to create images like this!

Partway through the session, we changed to a softer, more delicate dress. A completely different look, but still so beautiful.

Savannah is One! — Baby’s First Year

Little Miss Savannah turned one in the last few weeks! She is one of my Baby’s First Year girls, and I will miss seeing this family every few months. For this session we went to one of my new favorite locations here in Santa Clarita that has both these enormous trees, but also the most adorable bridge.

Savannah’s older brother is getting so big! Joey is so great about helping Savannah, holding her hand and being kind to her. He was great during this session.

She has had this delicate red-blonde hair since she was born and I just love it. Such a little beauty!

A few days after her session, Savannah came into the studio for a 1 year cake smash. She wasn’t terribly sure about it.
