Pregnant in the City {San Francisco Maternity Photographer}

I’m in love with these cityscape maternity portraits taken Portreo Hill – my special little neighborhood in San Francisco. This view of the city is spectacular!

This gorgeous expecting mama used to live a couple of blocks aways from where we photographed her in front of the city skyline. She and her partner recently moved to Bernal Heights. Having these photos of where their little family started is so special. This is a view they too enjoyed seeing everyday from their home.

To live in this gorgeous metropolitan city is amazing. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming with all the new construction, businesses and people coming into the city. But then when you zoom in, you see the faces of the people who live in your neighborhood, with you in your home, and soon the face of the growing baby in your belly. In a metropolitan city like San Francisco you can be anonymous and mix in with the background. But for this couple, it’s about showing their intimacy with each other and their love of San Francisco. It’s about zooming in and seeing the faces of the people who live here.

During this couples session, the soon-to-be dad pointed out that they lived just a couple blocks away. He said they took pictures of everything – but never of this view. Sometimes you take for granted the beauty that’s right outside your front door. I’m so happy I was able to capture this couple in their old neighborhood where it all started for them. Years to come, they’ll pull these photographs out to show their child and say, ‘this is where it started,’ in the heart of San Francisco.

Below are a few of my favorites, enjoy! Also, be sure to see their photos taken in my home-studio here and here.
