The Beaven clan is on an upward growth projection and this maternity session confirms it. We’ve gained two Beavens in the past year-ish – stork gift and wedding bells! And now we’re about to add a third, my nephew. My sister-in-law wasn’t keen on taking pictures of her belly, but I reassured her she’d need these photos as proof. You know, for when their baby boy grows into a teenager and becomes convinced they’re aliens and therefore aren’t his real parents. Yup, I’m always thinking of the future.
Plus, my sister-in-law had such a beautiful round belly. Pregnancy only happens a few times during a female’s lifetime (if they choose) so it’s a big deal!
They told me they wanted ‘something beachy and nature.’ California casual maternity portraits it was! And the coast of San Francisco was the perfect location. Off to Ocean Beach we went. The weather in San Francisco has truly been some of the best I’ve witnessed in years. We picked a perfect evening with a glowing sunset and dashing sunrays. I absolutely loved drenching them in the shimmering light and playing up the lens flair. Picture perfect. This little baby is one lucky little guy to have such beautiful and thoughtful parents. I can’t wait to meet him soon!
Keep an eye out for more maternity portraits from this session coming soon.
