I’m am loving these pregnancy beach photos of this couple and their adorable Great Mastiff puppy! I was so flattered when the expecting mom reached out to me about being their maternity and newborn photographer. Her sister-in-law is one of my dearest friends, who I also take family photos of, so when they announced their news and reached out I was double excited. I’ve photographed a handful of maternity, newborn and family clients who are related – it makes it extra fun for me because I get to know the families so well.
When I spoke this mama, she knew exactly what they wanted: pregnancy beach photos with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. So many of my clients, like myself are very sentimental about raising their family in the Bay Area. So having the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in the background (or any SF iconic landmark) is a perfect way to commemorate raising and being a parent here. This family extra-extra special they’re both natives to the area. Having been born and raised here is pretty special. Especially now they’re starting their own family.
The mom told me on the phone they had a puppy and really wanted to include him in some of the pregnancy photos. I looooove including the family pet in photos so was all about it. I had kinda forgotten what breed their puppy so when I saw him I about fell over. This puppy was big. Like huge. And he was the sweetest little-big guy! And for being a puppy he was really good. I couldn’t believe at how good he listened actually. One of my favorite photos was him playing in the ocean surf. At first he wasn’t so sure about the water coming up and was very curious. It melted my heart watching him explore!
Enjoy these pregnancy beach photos! I can’t wait to share their newborn photos soon.
