Alas, I’m posting a couple more from this gorgeous beach maternity session in Santa Cruz. If you missed the family – maternity photos from this session, be sure to check out my last blog post. Their two year old son is just adorable and such a riot. I loved hanging with this fun family for the afternoon.

But boy, this mom has her hands full! They recently moved to Santa Cruz and she’s been busy with caring for their toddler son, moving and getting settled into their home, her husband is the president of the Warriors d-league team (the Santa Cruz Warriors) AND she’s a career women. How she manages being pregnant on top of all of that is beyond me. Kudos to you mama! You’re an inspiration.

The foam green dress that mama wore had the perfect pop of color for a light and earthy pregnant photo shoot. I thought the expecting mom looked radiant in it.

I typically look to Tina Fey for a couple good laughs, but when I read this quote on her take on being a working mom, I just had to share:

“I think every working mom probably feels the same thing: You go through big chunks of time where you’re just thinking, ‘This is impossible — oh, this is impossible.’ And then you just keep going and keep going, and you sort of do the impossible.” Tina Fey
