We have lived in the Bay Area for over two years now, so I figured it was time we take some photos at the Golden Gate Bridge. One of my favorite spots to see the bridge is Baker Beach. Baker Beach is a darling little beach with a great view of the bridge and other San Francisco surroundings.
We were lucky enough to have Tarah, from Tarah Photography take our photos and I absolutely love them! Tarah is a Bay Area photographer specializing in maternity, family, and newborn shoots. She studied photography at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, and has been featured in multiple online publications. So obviously I was very excited to have her take our photos! San Francisco weather didn’t fully cooperate with us, however, I have to say I love the mood that these overcast skies are giving.
When choosing outfits for this shoot, I wanted keep things classy but simple. This dress from Ingrid & Isabel was perfect for what I was going for, and to add just a little glam, I threw on an embellished belt. My hair got so wind blown during the shoot, and honestly I was nervous about how I would look in the photos, since I had shown up with my hair perfectly curled. But actually, I think the “windy beach hair” look works with the setting –after all, we are at a beach.
I believe in capturing family moments as often as possible. Even though I’m 34 weeks pregnant in these photos, I love that it shows our family dynamic right now. I embrace my baby bump (read more about that HERE), and am so glad Tarah was able to photograph this special time in my life.
A few other reasons why I would recommend Tarah Photography are:
-Quick turn around time to receive photos (2-3 weeks)
-Very sweet and good with kids
-Professional and on top of things like scheduling and location
-Sends edits in color and B&W (this is a HUGE bonus for me, as I love B&W photos!)
