It’s funny how once you reach a certain age, babies tend to come in waves. Right now, I have like 6 pregnant friends all due within a month or so of each other… it’s SO exciting! These guys are two friends of mine who are expecting a little girl to join them in the next few weeks! We decided to have their maternity session in the Rose Gardens at Balboa Park, one of my all-time favorite places, and a perfect spot to celebrate their little girl!
Where to begin with these two??! First off, they were both so sweet & totally embraced the chilly, overcast weather at their beach shoot! I absolutely love the soft, even lighting of a cloudy beach, but a lot of times I have families & couples who are vocally bummed when it’s cloudy. I totally get it of course, but it was so refreshing to have a couple who totally didn’t mind!
These two have been together forever (they met in middle school!), and celebrated a belated 1 year anniversary with a photo shoot at La Jolla Shores, which is where they got engaged! They love cooking, traveling, and Friends (I have NO idea how I didn’t make ANY Friends references during our session… that’s my favorite too!), and we had so much fun during our shoot! Check out their awesome, overcast beach session below!
Gloomy days at the beach can be a bit of a bummer if you’re hoping for bright blue skies & pretty sunsets. But for most photographers, we LOVE overcast beach days for beach portraits! Here in San Diego, we tend to get really unpredictable weather in June, and this shoot day was no exception! I swear, the rest of the county was bright & sunny but Coronado Beach decided to be cold & gray. No worries, this family wore such bright & vibrant colors they cheered up the entire evening & I love love LOVE the photos!
