I adore this family! We met at their first maternity session (if you’ve visited my studio you’ve seen a gorgeous B&W gallery wrap of their faces touching hanging on my wall). Since then, I have photographed their precious daughter 6 times, capturing her milestones from infancy through two years-old. How fun to get a call from them recently to do a second maternity session at their cozy home nestled in the Oakland hills.
For those who have had a second child, you know that the months and weeks leading up to the birth are filled with mixed emotions. You are very excited to meet your new child, but also feel like holding your firstborn just a little longer, just a little tighter because you know big changes are ahead. I love the two top images because it shows the sweet closeness that they have with their daughter. So excited for them and can’t wait to meet and photograph their new baby!
