Beach and urban pregnancy photos is the perfect juxtaposition of what city living looks like in San Francisco. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that San Francisco is really an oceanfront city with all the tall buildings and mass of people living and commuting here. But alas, it is. And goodness, it’s a stunning place to live and raise a family.
When this mom reached out about booking her maternity and newborn photos she wanted photos that encompassed the essence of living in San Francisco without having a landmark looming in the background of her photos. She’s from the east coast and her parents raised her in Manhattan. That’s right, this is a real bonafide city gal. They’re very sentimental about starting their family here in San Francisco, as am I. So it was perfect that she also wanted some urban shots too. Because her and her husband live in lower Pacific Heights we hit the nearby streets there for some vista views of the city and the rolling streets of San Francisco. Afterwards we went to my favorite beach. But here’s where things got a little crazy. When we arrived to the beach it was freezing – Arctic cold. In fact, that evening we spent at the beach was the coldest I have ever been during a shoot and I’ve shot in the middle of winter (which means nothing in San Francisco). Point here is, dang they rocked it at the beach. You’d never know their jaws were chattering, their limbs were numb and they had goosebumps from head-to-toe. Bravo! In fact, if you want to see just how happy there were to end the shoot, scroll to last photo in this post. I snapped one right when I said, “It’s a wrap!” lol dang, cold weather.
Enjoy these beach and urban pregnancy photos in San Francisco!
