When I get commissioned to photograph a Maternity Photo Session at Windandsea Beach – La Jolla, my heart sings. Why? Because La Jolla is literally the jewel of San Diego! Also because this is a unique moment in time in a women’s life in which beautiful photography can express all the love of creating a new life and the bond with the baby inside the womb. Besides, the love and expectations and all the emotions mixed in together make this one of the most precious photo sessions there is.
This photo shoot was done at Windandsea Beach, in San Diego in January, when the tide was low. We were so lucky because we were having a rainy and cold winter, but for some reason that day was sunny and a little warmer than normal and we had enough sand to be creative with the poses! Lucky for us!
We arrived an hour before sunset and usually at that time the sun is a little too bright for photography. Nevertheless, I decided to get started and not wait until a few minutes before sunset to start capturing the best images. The result was extremely beautiful. The models, the green moss, the rocks, the blue ocean and the bright sun created a prefect maternity photo session for this expectant couple in La Jolla.
