Pavi + Alex : San Francisco Maternity Session

Pavi + Alex : San Francisco Maternity Session

I am so happy to share these photos of some dear friends of ours, who are expecting their first little one in February. Regardless of how non-maternal Pavi feels, I know that both she and Alex will make wonderful parents. The reason why? They always manage to not take themselves too seriously and make each other laugh. Like this.

Kim Family : Manhattan Beach Maternity Session

Kim Family : Manhattan Beach Maternity Session

It was a bit of an afterthought. No, not having a baby! That would be crazy talk. No, having maternity photos taken was the afterthought. With ten days left until their due date, Jennifer and Steve decided to document the home stretch before their new little one makes his debut.

Terry + Brenden : Los Angeles Maternity Shoot

Terry + Brenden : Los Angeles Maternity Shoot

Extra Point. That’s what Terry’s been calling the kicking child growing inside her belly. As the first child for Terry and Brenden, the excitement between them is palpable. And well, for me too, since Terry is my older sister!

Less than 48 hours after touching down in Los Angeles, I was in Manhattan Beach with these two, capturing them being both silly and loving just a few short weeks before Extra Point makes her debut. I hope I’ve been able to do justice to their happiness for their impending little one.

Preeti & Siva : Maternity

Preeti & Siva : Maternity

They told me that even though they knew each other for a while and were friends, they delayed dating because they knew that would be it for them and they wanted to be ready. And I think it’s because of that, that Preeti and Siva seem like they’ve been married for 30 years. They don’t feel the need to show their affection overtly, but it’s clearly apparent in the little gestures you may catch between them, and especially through the way they entertain each other. Usually that entails Siva doing something ridiculous (the man has no shame, I tell you), and Preeti laughing.

Preeti has a glow about her that can only come from pregnancy. At just shy of 30 weeks, she has an adorable baby bump that Siva can’t seem to keep his hands off of. When Siva asked me over a month ago if I’d be kind enough to take preggy photos of Preeti, I was happy to oblige. Nothing better than sharing in the celebration of a new life beginning!

Edwin and I had a ton of fun shooting preggy Preeti – Siva wasn’t only entertaining to her – and we can’t wait to meet the little one when he arrives this summer! We are truly honored to be the ones to take these first photos of him…before he’s even left the womb! I hope that one day, when he sees these photos, he will be moved to see how happy his parents were to be starting their family.
