Take a moment and soak in these gorgeous coastal California maternity photos. The couple is expecting their first baby and wanted to capture the sentiment of starting and raising their family here the in Bay Area. The said they weren’t super into the idea of beach photos – there just wasn’t an attachment there – but instead they loved the idea of capturing life living on the coast.

I was all in of course. Shooting on the ocean bluffs is one of my favorite locations – it’s just so epic! I pre-warned them it’ll likely be foggy the day of their shoot. Mostly because it’s the coast and it’s almost always foggy. But also because their shoot landed during fog season. When the fog is especially more frequent and aggressive. Luckily, we could still see down the coastline despite the fog rolling in. So that was a win!

The expecting mom showed-up with her make-up and hair on point. I asked who she hired and she said she did it herself. Even though she has a successful career in tech she’s passionate about make-up and hair and daydreams about one day jet setting around the world beautifying people. Love it!

Enjoy these coastal California maternity photos!
